Janome SMD Exclusive SMD3000 Sewing Machine


SMD by Janome

A range of machines where each model is selected only if it meets our "SMD by Janome" three point criteria - ease of use, reliability, and of course, excellent value for money!

Whatever is your interest - home decor, dressmaking or patchwork and quilting, the combination of the SMD3000`s twenty four stitches plus six styles of buttonhole together with a list of features usually only found on more expensive machines gives you the ability to approach the task in hand with confidence. With step by step instructions written as if you have little sewing experience, the "SMD by Janome" SMD3000 is suitable for the novice as well as the more experienced sewer.

Ease Of Use

The SMD3000 is a fully computerised mid range sewing machine at an affordable price.

Amongst its numerous features that makes operating the SMD3000 such a pleasure to use is an easy to thread top loading bobbin with anti jamming rotary hook. Simply drop the bobbin in and thread around. In case you are still not sure, the threading diagram is also printed on the bobbin cover!

Threading the top of the machine is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4 and thru the needle. The clearly defined path is numbered at each threading point and when you reach the needle, the built in needle threader will thread it for you.

The SMD3000 has a clear LED Display that indicates which of the 30 stitches is selected as well as the length and width setting of the stitch. The preset length and widths are easily adjusted by using the +/- buttons.

The electronic foot control is used to regulate the speed whilst a powerful DC motor and speed limiter work together and allow the SMD3000 to sew at a slow pace without losing needle penetration power. Alternatively, the stop/start button is a very handy feature which gives you the option of operating the machine without a foot control.
Above all, the SMD3000 proves that not everything that is computerised has to be complicated!


The Janome reputation for reliability is legendary and well documented. The Janome brand was established in 1935 and in 1936, opened the first mass production factory for domestic sewing machines in Japan.

Janome designed and manufactured the first programmable computer sewing machine back in 1979 and launched the first domestic computerised hoop embroidery machine in 1990.

Using modern techniques, innovations and components in its current models, Janome have established themselves as the leading specialist domestic sewing machine company.

Value For Money

Compare the price and features of the SMD3000 to machines of similar specification and quality. Our opinion - NO COMPARISON!!

Gentle enough to cope with lightweight delicates and yet powerful enough to sew through the heaviest layers of denim, the SMD3000 really is the perfect all rounder at an incredible price.

LED Display

Clearly indicates selected stitch, stitch length and width.

Electronic Speed Limiter

Set the maximum speed that you are comfortable with, even with your foot control at fully depressed. Also used with the start/stop control.

Start/Stop Control

Originally only found on top of the range models, simply unplug your foot control and press to start button. Your SMD3000 will automatically start slowly before reaching maximum speed set with speed limiter. Press again to stop. Easy!!

Automatic Buttonholes

A dressmakers dream. No less than 6 styles to choose from. All stitched out in one step, automatically matching the size of the button. Combinations of standard, keyhole, round end and stretch. Perfect buttonholes in seconds, each one an exact size of the other.

Needle Threader

This feature is a real time saver. Engage the needle threader behind the needle and a small hook locates through the eye of the needle. The thread is then taken around the guide and the needle threader released. Result - a needle threaded in seconds.

Hard Cover

Protects your machine from knocks and scrapes. A slot in the top for the handle means your machine is still portable, even with the cover in place.

Auto Declutch Bobbin

No need to manually declutch. Simply click the bobbin winder into position and the sewing mechanism is automatically released.

Extra High Foot Lifter

Bulky fabrics and multiple layers can be sewn with ease

Drop Feed

For those who like to express their creativity with free hand embroidery. Drop the feed dogs leaving you in full control. Or use traditionally for darning.

Free Arm / Flat Bed

Use as conventional flat bed for general sewing tasks or remove the accessory box for free arm sewing, allowing you to easily sew sleeves, trouser legs or any "difficult to reach" areas. Use the accessory box to keep your presser feet, bobbins, needles, etc.

Quick Release Foot Holder

To change the presser foot, simply lift the foot lifter, press the release button and the foot will detach. To attach the another foot, line the foot up with the foot holder and lower the presser bar. The standard zig zag, buttonhole, zipper, and satin stitch foot are all interchangeable with the press of a button. Plus many optional feet are available.

Customer testimonials

Excellent customer service.
I ordered the Janome SMD 3000 online and it arrived the next day complete with a free thread pack and sewing kit which was an excellent bonus. Very happy with the machine. I would thoroughly recommend Sewing Machines Direct to anyone looking to buy a sewing machine or accessories - excellent, speedy service.

Great machine excellent service and fast delivery.

A.T. Powys (11th April 2016)

I'm new to sewing and the Janome SMD3000 was recommended by a couple of friends who already own the machine. They also suggested purchasing the optional Quilters kit so I ordered the complete package on offer. This machine is a great price, Russell provided good communication, and the delivery was super fast with the parcel arriving the next day...and I couldn't be happier. The machine is easy to use and perfect for my crafting projects. Thank you!
