I am going to buy a coverstitch machine soon to round out my sewing room. I was wondering if there was definite winner in the battle of the overstitch machines between Janome and Brother.

Please let me know your opinions!

Thanks,
Elizabeth

No winner because both have their pros and cons. It's personal preference. You need to understand what is most important to you. I like my Brother and I would not buy the Janome. Others like their Janome and would not buy the Brother.

Price might also be a determining factor, I believe the Janome is generally $100-$200 more than the Brother. I have the CoverPro and recently purchased a ton of accessories for it on Ebay. The more you learn, the more toys you want (at least for me anyway!). Could be a dangerous slope.

Thanks! I was leaning towards the Brother to begin with so your recommendation just swayed me completely. I got, I think, a pretty good deal which included 6 addl feet. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Thanks again!

I had the brother machine never had trouble with it stitch nicely.
I sold it because i wanted more room to the right. Now I have the janome 1000cp. they are both nice machines.

do any either of these machines work on denim. I thought using a coverstitch for all the double lines of topstitching on jeans would be nice. But I found my serger/coverstitch combo doesn't really like sever layers of denim ie going over seams.
