What comes with my machine?Elna equips every machine with some basic standard accessories so you can start sewing right after you take your machine out of the box! These vary from model to model so heres a list of what comes with the EL2000.
Zigzag Foot, Buttonhole foot, screwdriver, seam ripper. These accessories are fitted into the carton by Janome.
We recommend all packaging and labelling is kept somewhere safe as it has all the specially designed packing foam to transport your machine safely! Whats so great about these accessories? You can get away with most projects with only one sewing foot but geez dont some of these specialty feet make jobs so much easier? All sewing machines will have a straight and a zig zag stitch, with some variations in between at the most basic level.
Your most common sewing foot will be your. It has both a vertical and horizontal slot to accommodate needle movement in either direction. Theres almost a foot for everything! The EL2000 comes with a Blind Hem Foot, with a centre guide and rivets in the underside to stitch consistently a blind hem perfect for trousers and skirts.
Zippers feature in all areas of craft and sometimes its not as simple as sewing two pieces of fabric together. For these, there are several variations of specially designed feet. With the EL2000 you receive the common Zipper E Foot, with a clip-bar on both the left and right allowing you to get as close as possible to either side of a zipper track.
You cant sew without needles! Janome include a small pack of mixed sharp needles to help you get started. Sharps are your standard sewing needle, and range in sizes depending on the weight of fabric you need them for.
The average sewing fabric uses a size 14 sharp needle, and its recommended that you change your needle every 6-8 sewing hours even if its not broken they can go blunt! There are many types too, so dont forget to browse other needle types for your next project. Now one thing we can never have too many of are the Janome Universal Plastic Bobbins.
This is the little spool that you use in the bottom of your machine to help form the stitch, and you use the bobbin winder on top of your machine to wind your choice of thread so your colours match on both sides of the fabric. Most modern machines prefer the use of plastic bobbins because unless advised otherwise, metal bobbins can damage your machine.
What if you want to darn with the EL2000? Unlike many other machines, simple ones like the EL2000 will not have the ability to drop the feed dogs. In the event you should choose to darn and feed the fabric through by hand, use the Janome Darning Plate! It slots in over the needle plate and inactivates the feed function for free-motion use!
All other standard accessories are little things to help maintain your machine, like lint brushes for cleaning out the bobbin case, and a screw key so you can. If you have any other enquires about these items, just let us know and we can help you identify them and their potential uses.
We hope this helps you know what youre looking for. Youre another step closer to finding your perfect machine!
