Janome is proud to introduce a new CXL301 sewing machine its computerised and easy to use whit many features often only found on more expensive machines.

A modern designed computerised sewing machine in trendy red and white colouring, its rounded shapely corners gives the CXL301 an attractive appearance. But dont let this machine fool you with its good looks, it has 30 pre-programmed stitches, including 6 styles of automatic one step buttonholes. Use the LCD display to see which stitch you've chosen as well as the stitch width and length, the pre-set stitches are fully adjustable by pressing the touch panel keys.

With jam-proof, magnetic, top-loading, full rotary hook system eliminates the need for a old fashioned removable bobbin case. The hook cover plate is see-through and opens at the touch of a button, and the extra needle penetration power lets you sew across heavier fabrics & multiple layers.

There is also a needle up/down button for selecting whether the needle should stop in the fabric ( great for pivoting ) or in the up position. The extension table also detaches for free-arm sewing.

A seven piece feed mechanism, a drop feed facility, automatic needle threader are standard. There's also a speed control lever for setting the maximum sewing speed and by using the stop/start button you dont have to use the foot control and the machine comes complete with a soft cover.

It's very easy to use, with features such as clip on feet. Most of the optional feet for the machine just snap on and off, all you have to do is push the red button on the back of the shank to release the feet and lower the shank down for the feet to clip into place again. Yep... we would recommend it for a novice or an expert sewer! In fact we use the Janome CXL301 as a benchmark when comparing sewing machine at this price level. Its at home mending jeans, taking in a satin dress or finishing a quilting project.

  1. Review written by Kelly from Macclesfield
    My overall rating is: 5 out of 5. Excellent

    I really enjoy using this machine. I went on a basic beginners course and these were the machines used and so felt comfortable to buy one knowing I would be able to do the basics but could learn a little more (like the auto needle threading, button holes, different stitches). I think a good starter machine (Posted April 9, 2014)

  2. Review written by Bensimgym from Lincolnshire
    My overall rating is: 5 out of 5. Excellent

    Received before estimated delivery date. Machine is just what I wanted and at a really good price. Computerised with a bit of embroidery. The selling point for me was that I could use the machine without the foot pedal as I have arthritis in my knee. Looking forward to many happy sewing years! (Posted January 27, 2014)

    My overall rating is: 5 out of 5. Excellent

    This sewing machine is great and is easy to use. I particularly like one-step buttonholes, the variety of utility stitches, the needle down/up switch and the seam lock switch. Recommended. Delivery was fast and well organised. (Posted November 3, 2013)

    My overall rating is: 5 out of 5. Excellent

    Great machine. Love Janome. Good clear-view bobbin, needle-up / down, and needle threader ( a must have). Best of all is the adjustable speed button. A good all rounder. Clear instructions when changing length and width of stitches. Great Service too from Sewing Machine Sales - including next day delivery. (Posted March 21, 2013)

    My overall rating is: 5 out of 5. Excellent

    Really pleased with this smooth running un-complicated machine. Love the functions including the needle down or up selection when machine stops sewing. Also the clear bobbin lid so I can see when the thread has run out! Highly recommend it and very good value for money. (Posted October 14, 2011)

  6. Review written by rmc from Essex
    My overall rating is: 5 out of 5. Excellent

    I am new to sewing machines (being a knitter all my life) but went on a course sewing a tote bag and was hooked. I learnt on a Janome and was advised not to buy the most basic or the most complicated but somewhere in the middle. This seems to fit the bill and more. You can use the machine without the foot pedal and the automatic needle threader is a dream as my eyes are not quite what they were!
    I have sewn a silk pillowcase and a brocade bag already and it has been wonderful. It managed to go through several layers of the brocade with no problem.
    I do have to constantly check the manual on how to thread it etc but I am sure it won't be long before I can put the manual away.
    I loved the fact it was a Breast Cancer Awareness one as well, it's a nice looking machine and I am thrilled.
    It came the next day and the price could not be beaten. Believe me I checked thoroughly.
    All in all this was a great buy and I am extremely happy.
