Introducing the Atelier 5. It is the latest computerized sewing machine in the Janome line up. Janome have taken some of the most used and popular functions from other machines in the range and this has resulted in the Atelier 5.

They have also taken all the best and easiest to use features from all their models and packed them into this one unbelievable Atelier 5 sewing and quilting machine. The Atelier 5 has over 170 stitch options, including the choice of 10 buttonholes. Another nice addition we like, the knee lift has been included and so has the automatic thread cutter at the touch of a button. This saves time whilst quilting and saves reaching for the scissors and catching the scissor points on the machine as you quickly try snipping thread ends off at the end of a seam. Another new feature is the "trim" plug at the side of the machine for remote thread cutting.

There are also three different sewing kits available for the Atelier 5:

Quilting Kit JQ7 - £185
Open-toe craft foot
Convertible Free-motion foot 
Stitch in the Ditch foot 
Clear seam foot 
Applique foot 
Large quilting extension table

Home Decor Kit (JHD1) £129.00

Free motion Couching Foot

Fashion Sewing Kit (JFS1) £109.00
Narrow Beading Foot
Wide Beading Foot
Concealed Zipper Foot
Edge Stitch Foot
Gathering Foot
4mm Hemmer Foot
6mm Hemmer Foot
Ribbon Sequin Foot

It is a powerful machine, reaching speeds of up to 1,000 stitches per minute. Nevertheless, even at those speeds, stitch quality is a priority. Stitch width can be adjusted up to 9mm wide and 5mm in length.

We also like the auto thread tension setting, simple but effective. This feature helps prevent tension problems when sewing different thickness of material.

Even though the sewing bed is quite large, at nearly 8.3" to the right of the needle. It is well lit thanks to an array of bright LED lights under the sewing arm and above the needle and presser foot area.

The range of stitch patterns are arranged in to 6 modes, each mode can be selected on screen. Each stitch can be viewed on screen and also for reference on the inside of the lift up lid. The LCD also displays length and width as well as the optimum presser foot for a particular stitch. Lettering can be saved in to one of the machine memories, so names and phrases can be sewn out. Up to 50 characters can be selected or memorised in both upper and lower case.
