Janome CoverPro 900CPX Vs 1000CPX - Major Feature Differences

Design wise these two machines are similar, however the extra features that come with 1000CPX does ask for some slight changes.

•    2 needle, 3 thread cover stitch

Janome 1000CPX can do

•    1 needle, 2 thread chain stitch
•    2 needle, 3 thread cover stitch
•    3 needle, 4 thread triple cover stitch

The triple cover stitch option on 1000CPX can be used for hemming on sleeves and waistlines, attaching elastics, tapes and laces.

Stitch Width

This is the second major difference that may influence your decision. The stitch width on Janome CoverPro 900CPX remains constant at 5mm. While the stitch width on 900CPX might be enough for some, 1000CPX provides the flexibility of having a narrow 3mm stitch and a 6mm wide stitch.

Editor comment

Both Janome CoverPro 900CPX and 1000CPX are known for their user-friendliness and stitch quality. This is the reason why they are so popular among sewers. Even though most features remain the same, couple of extra features that come with 1000CPX provides a good gap of differentiation between these two wonderful cover stitch machines.

In simple words, 900CPX can do most things that 1000CPX can do, but not everything. If the triple needle cover stitch and narrow hem option is important for you, then 1000CPX will suit you more. Otherwise you can go with 900CPX.
