Master Precision Stitching with the Adjustable Seam Guide

Enhance your sewing projects with Janome’s versatile Adjustable Seam Guide. Designed to work seamlessly with almost any presser foot, the adjustable guide to the right of the needle lets you follow an edge or previous row of stitching for precise edge stitching.

Convenient Thumbwheel

The Janome Continental M17 combines great convenience features you have come to expect from a Janome machine but also a few industry firsts. The newest feature is the Thumbwheel located to the right of the needle, this allows you to raise or lower the needle without reaching for the handwheel.

850 Built-in Stitches

Boasting 850 built-in stitches including 13 different style buttonholes, plus 3 fonts, give you an incredible amount of options. 9mm zig-zag means you have extra stitch width, combined with 91 different needle positions for bolder, more distinctive, and fine-tuned designs. The variable zig-zag provides precise control over stitch width via the knee lifter.

Hi-Definition Sewing

The floating mode function will conveniently adjust the pressure to the presser foot while feeding fabric to protect delicate or high pile fabrics like velvet. Other features such as the metal cloth guide which provides a solid guide to achieve perfect hems, and the Automatic Built-in Needle threader are two more extremely useful standard features to allow you to achieve Hi-Definition Sewing.

9mm & Variable Zig-Zag Stitches

That’s right – you can create 9mm wide stitches on the Janome Continental M17! The extra width makes all of your decorative or alphabet stitches bolder, brighter, and more distinct. Wider, more distinct stitches allow you to fill more area with stitching, quicker – saving you valuable time while sewing.

Also including an advanced tool that will help you unlock new creative possibilities! The Variable Zig-Zag enables precision control over the stitch width via the knee lift. Thread painters will rejoice at the ease of control of the stitch width. Begin with a straight stitch; then, press against the knee lifter to widen your stitch to a 9mm zig-zag while the machine is still running. Release pressure to return to a straight stitch for a tapered finish gradually. Don’t want a 9mm stitch? You can easily control the maximum width of the stitch setting in the machine set mode. This advanced control opens incredible new possibilities for creative expression with free motion quilting, thread painting, raw edge applique, free-motion monogramming, and more.
