Janome 1600PQC Sewing Machine


The perfect machine for the serious sewer

The Janome 1600PQC sewing machine is the perfect machine for the serious sewer. With many terrific features. The Janome Memory Craft 1600PQC is the latest industrial quality machine in the Professional Series. It is a dedicated straight stitch machine with an aluminium body and a longer arm that provides 50% more working space than other machines.

Inside it is a robust powerhouse with a high powered motor which can sew up to 1600 stitches per minute - twice as fast as most domestic machines. And it is a flatbed machine, styled for those bigger projects such as home furnishing, bridal wear and quilting. Industrial quality tension control, variable foot pressure, a built in needle threader, a knee lifter, a speed control lever, a needle up/down memory key, dual lights, unique automatic thread cutter and a large extension table, complete the exterior features of this machine.

This is the ideal machine for the really serious sewing enthusiast who is looking for precise quality straight stitching at double the normal speed. The Janome 1600PQC has the easy-fitting HL type needle and an automatic underbed thread cutter, cutting both top and bottom threads at the touch of a button!! From the "Liquid Response" foot control to the pre-tension system, everything on this machine is built for high quality stitches at professional speeds. But while it gives you the performance of an industrial machine, it also gives you the quiet operation and sleek design of a Janome . An extra large 9" x 5" work area gives you room for the largest projects.

An adjustable knee lift lets you raise the presser foot while keeping your hands on your work. You can even wind a new bobbin whilst sewing as the 1600PQC uses an independent motor for this operation.

With almost 11 lbs. of presser foot pressure ensures perfect equal stitches, even when working with heavyweights and for those of us who are occasionally absent minded, the 1600PQC includes a foot sensor to prevent you sewing before the presser foot has been lowered (it happens to us all!!)

Customer testimonials

Brilliant customer service, would definately reccomend this company for online shopping. I have purchased 2 rather expensive machines from them now after having a terrible experience with another company ( unfortunately not sure if I can name them!). Now I wouldnt buy my machines from anywhere else.

L.B. N. Ireland (7th April 2017)

This is the third time I have purchased machines of SMD, I have worked in the management and technical side of the sewing industry for 40 years so I know that the advice I receive from Russell is sound. After a lot of research for an industrial type straight stitch machine that will cope with the types of garments and also upholstery that I make, Russell confirmed that the Janome 1600PQC would be the best machine. Delivery was to the day I requested, I have tested the machine and it lives up to recommendations, easy to use, from a slow stitch by stitch to a good full speed with with great stability. The benefit is that it takes up a lot less room than my Pfaff industrial machine and also great because I have a collection of industrial feet that would fit this machine I wouldn't buy sewing machines from any other online company so I would always fully recommend SMD. Fantastic Service!
