We recommend all packaging and labelling is kept somewhere safe as it has all the specially designed packing foam to transport your machine safely! Whether it’s storage, moving house, bringing it in for servicing or shipping a machine through post – for whichever reason, this box is essential in keeping your sewing machine damage-free!What’s so great about these accessories?A FootYou can get away with most projects with only one sewing foot – but geez don’t some of these specialty feet make jobs so much easier?! All sewing machines will have a straight and a zig zag stitch, with some variations in between at the most basic level. Your most common sewing foot will be yourÂ Zigzag FootÂ orÂ ‘A’Â Foot. It has both a vertical and horizontal slot to accommodate needle movement in either direction.E FootBut what else? We buy sewing machines for mending and making clothing, accessories and decor crafts. Zippers feature in all areas of craft and sometimes it’s not as simple as sewing two pieces of fabric together. For these, there are several variations of specially designed feet. With the DC6100 you receive the common Zipper ‘E’ Foot, with a clip-bar on both the left and right allowing you to get as close as possible to either side of a zipper track.G FootThere’s almost a foot for everything! The DC6100 comes with a Blind Hem Foot, with a centre guide and rivets in the underside to stitchÂ consistently a blind hem – perfect for trousers and skirts.C FootDon’t have an overlocker? Not to worry! While some sewists use a simple zig zag stitch to finish edges and prevent them from fraying, this Overcast foot provides the forming fingers to keep fabric from gathering and a brush to prevent frayed edges from pulling up with each stitch. Just cut your edges neatly and use this foot to achieve clean finishes for your projects!O FootStruggling to keep seams straight? This 1/4Â´Â´ seam foot is the most popular seam guide accessory for achieving straight even seams every time! The guide attachment extended before the foot guides your fabric in at a consistent width. Never unpick your seams again!F FootWhat about more decorative projects? You might find that a nice satin stitch along the hem may be a nice touch, or are looking to use one of the many applique stitches to attach patches, accent clothes and bags but they just don’t work properly with the standard A foot… For these we use a Satin Stitch or ‘F’ Foot, designed to be a clear view short nosed foot for a better finish.R FootWhat’s this about ‘automatic buttonholes’? Yes! This machine can do a buttonhole in one easy step. Unlike older machines that force you to pencil out the measurement and turn the dial at every corner, the automatic buttonhole ‘R’ foot uses your button of choice at one end to automatically size up the perfect buttonhole and frames it up for easy sewing, all it takes is lowering the button sew lever and away you go! For difficult to sew fabrics, there’s also a stabiliser provided.Extension TableWhat if you need a bigger workspace? That’s where the Janome extension table comes in! For smaller jobs we remove the accessory box from the front of the machine to work with cuffs and sleeves, but to make the working surface larger you can add a specially fitted table to your machine, so you can work on quilts and blankets without obstruction. It’s the next best thing to having your machine built into a desk!BobbinsNow one thing we can never have too many of are the Janome Universal Plastic Bobbins. This is the little spool that you use in the bottom of your machine to help form the stitch, and you use the bobbin winder on top of your machine to wind your choice of thread so your colours match on both sides of the fabric. Most modern machines prefer the use of plastic bobbins because unless advised otherwise, metal bobbins can damage your machine.NeedlesYou can’t sew without needles! Janome include a small pack of mixed sharp needles to help you get started. Sharps are your standard sewing needle, and range in sizes depending on the weight of fabric you need them for. The average sewing fabric uses a size 14 sharp needle, and it’s recommended that you change your needle every 6-8 sewing hours – even if it’s not broken they can go blunt! There are many types too, so don’t forget to browse other needle types for your next project.Spool HoldersMost sewing machines will now provide horizontal spool caps or holders, so the thread winds off the spool the same way it has been wound on, in an even and consistent manner. To keep the spool from dancing around, Janome provides spool caps to affix your thread and help it unwind properly. You receive both small and large spool caps, but we recommend the small for most threads as it doesn’t interfere with the path of smaller spools.Additional Spool PinWhy do you need an additional spool pin? Sometimes you might want to mix two coloured threads together, or make use of a twin or triple needle. Where are you going to put that extra spool? Janome includes an additional spool pin with the DC6100 which you insert into a small slot on the top of the machine. Simple hold all your desired threads together and draw the through the machine as normal and thread the needles via left and right.All other standard accessories are little things to help maintain your machine, like lint brushes for cleaning out the bobbin case, and a screw key so you canÂ getÂ to the bobbin case.
