Janome (1600PQC)


The "P" stands for professional and understandably so. The Memory Craft 1600PQC is the latest industrial quality machine in our Professional Series. It is a dedicated straight stitch machine with an aluminium body and a longer arm that provides 50% more working space than other machines. Inside it is a computerised powerhouse with a high powered motor which can sew up to 1600 stitches per minute - twice as fast as most machines. And it is a flatbed machine, styled for those bigger projects such as home furnishing, bridal wear and quilting. Industrial quality tension control, variable foot pressure, a built in needle threader, a knee lifter, a speed control lever, a needle up/down memory key, dual lights, unique automatic thread cutter and a large extension table, complete the exterior features of this machine. You can even wind a new bobbin whilst sewing !!

This is the ideal machine for the really serious sewing enthusiast who is looking for precise quality straight stitching at double the normal speed.
