The Janome J3 -18 is a portable lightweight machine with a front loading bobbin case and easily converts to free arm by removing the detachable storage box.

Easy to thread and operate, this 2 dial machine is simplicity itself. Sew an automatic buttonhole, straight stitch, variable zig zag stitch or one of the other stitches using the stitch selector and choose the most appropriate stitch length using the stitch length dial. There are also 8 stretch stitches to choose from.

Threading is no longer a dreaded chore because the easy to follow numbered thread path gets you down to the needle where the built in needle threader gets the job done in seconds.
The convenient free arm allows easy access to difficult areas and is ideal for sewing sleeves and trouser legs.


The extra height foot lifter increases the height of the foot and allows for extra bulky fabrics.
The Janome J3 -18 has 2 handy pull up/push down spool pins for ease of use and safe storage. And because there are 2, you can really be creative using twin needles.
All this plus quick foot change, a reverse stitch lever, a one-hand thread cutter and drop feed facility for free hand embroidery.
