Janome DC2013 Vs DC3050 Comparison In Detail


Janome DC2013 and DC3050 are two quality sewing machines from Janome. By 'Quality' we mean it, literally. As far as stitch quality and performance is concerned, these two machines are neck on neck. These two are computerized sewing machines. As these two are even stevens on quality, let us see which one offers more features.

Janome DC2013 Vs DC3050 - Major Feature Differences

Design wise both Janome DC2013 and DC3050 are very different. DC3050 has a curvaceous design with a 'Decor Computer' logo in the front. DC2013 has a slightly squarish design. Even though the designs are different, the basic controls and buttons are located at the same place. At first, let us have a look at the feature differences.

Are you waiting to see the feature differences? You may be disappointed as there isn't a lot. The only difference between these two machines is that DC3050 has an option to adjust the presser foot pressure, which DC2013 doesn't have. That's it. The difference in features end there.

Editor comment

Like their features, Janome DC2013 and DC3050 are identical in their performances. They are solidly built and have awesome stitch quality (this is not an exaggeration, it is a fact). Janome's Superior Feed System (SFS) does a commendable job in ensuring smooth and consistent fabric feeding. This clearly reflects in the way these two machines handle thick fabrics like denim. Multiple layers of denim is a walk in the park for these two machines. 

So the decision basically comes down to the presser foot pressure adjustment. It is completely a subjective thing. Some may like the automatic setting and other might love doing it manually. Normally we recommend automatic presser foot pressure for inexperienced sewers. The machine will automatically adjust the pressure according to the type of fabric used. You don't need to worry about that part. But if you are a seasoned sewer, then the option to adjust the pressure manually is always handy. Because some of the best results are achieved when you fine tune the pressure.
