The first thing you will notice about this JNS17CT sewing machine form Toyota is the bright and fresh modern design. The JNS17CT has 17 stitches including a 4-step buttonhole, scallop and blind hem stitches among others. It is one of the popular Jeans models and can stitch through many heavy fabric layers. It comes with zipper foot so you can get started on your next project as soon as you have this machine out of its packaging.
Also included is the Jeans lifter, which helps when taking up hems on jeans. The problem has always been that when the sewing machine sews around the trouser leg then arrives at the super thick inside seam! No regular sewing machine can stitch through it including this one. You find the presser foot will not go over the thickness, however, using this Jeans lifter will help the machine sew past this super thick seam area.
Another function of the Toyota JNS17CT is it's separate motor to wind the bobbins. Simply place the empty bobbin on it's location pin and push the lever across to fill the empty bobbin with thread.
Front to rear threading of the needle makes seeing the needle eye a lot easier. Loading the bobbin is via a top loading rotary hook mechanism. A clear bobbin cover is a huge help, so as you are sewing you can see how much thread is left on the bobbin before starting to sew.
Included is an instructional DVD as well as the printed manual, electronic foot control with lead, spare bobbins, spare needles, a quick unpick, and as we have already mentioned the metal left and right zipper foot. It has the 4-step buttonhole foot with size markings and a screw driver. In fact all you need to get started is thread and fabric!
