Janome 5060QDC Computerised Sewing Machine
Why choose the Janome 5060QDC from us?
Introducing the latest 5060QDC sewing machine its computerised and easy to use with many features often only found on more expensive machines.
INCLUDING EXTENSION TABLE & QUILTING ACCESSORY SET WITH WALKING FOOT.
The 5060QDC is blue and white with a modern design, the new sewing machine gives you computer control with 60 pre-programmed stitches, including 6 styles of automatic one step buttonholes. The LCD display makes it easy to see which stitch you've chosen as well as the stitch width and length, which are fully adjustable.
A jam-proof, magnetic, top-loading, full rotary hook system eliminates the need for a removable bobbin case. The hook cover plate opens at the touch of a button, and the extra needle penetration power of the Janome 5060 QDC lets you sew across heavier fabrics & multiple layers. It uses the latest quick set bobbin system, so while inserting the bobbin the thread end it trimmed to the correct length and is ready to start stitching, no need to turn the hand wheel to bring the bobbin thread to the top like older models!
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.
It's like a quilting machine with all the accessories you need in one package, included with our 5060QDC:
- Extension table (size 28cm x 40cm)
- Walking foot
- Quilting/Patchwork guide
- 1/4" Seam foot
- Clear crafting foot
- Cloth edge guide
- Darning/Embroidery foot
- As well as all the standard foot and accessories listed bolow.
The Janome 5060QDC sewing machine also features a seven piece feed mechanism; a drop feed facility, automatic needle threader. There's also a speed control lever for setting the maximum sewing speed and by using the stop/start button you don’t 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 snap on feet. Most of the 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 this Janome 5060QDC to a novice or an expert sewer!
Plus, we love the hard protective cover.

Only just ordered the machine which will not be unpacked for a couple of weeks, so review is a little premature. That said I can say the order and delivery process was excellent and just as promised.
I was looking for a good all round machine, and I have found it. It’s very easy to use, not to complicated but with all the bells and whistles. I am really enjoying sewing and looking forward to all the things I can make. Would recommend.
A really smooth machine. This was a big step up for me.. from a tiny old John Lewis sewing machine. So I've not got lots of experience with the more professional machines. But this is like a dream!
Very smooth sewing, neat functions like the auto lock button to use at the start and end of your stitching. The cut button to cut cotton at the end. The needle stops automatically in the down position when you take your foot off the pedal so it's easy to turn corners. Excellent range of stitches. An easy slider to adjust the sewing speed when using the foot pedal. Easy to adjust stitch length using the selector buttons. I haven't tried it for quilting yet, but I can imagine it will be easy to use for this. There are measurements on the extension table to help with spacing between quilting.
