Janome 990D Serger Review In Detail

The stitch quality is very good and Janome 990D has enough power to go through multiple layers of bulky fabrics.

Editor rating


Janome 990D is an entry level serger. It is a 3/4 thread serger. The machine comes with differential feed (Differential feed ratio 0.5 to 2.2). Lay in tension dials and color coded thread guides make threading easy.

One good thing about Janome 990D is that the recommended needles are marked on the machine itself. Switching to rolled hem is effortless, you just need to move the lever to rolled hem mode. The upper knife is retractable. Foot pressure can be adjusted. Presser feet are snap-on type. Stitch length can be adjusted in the range 1-4mm. Cutting width can be adjusted between 3.1mm to 5.1mm. 990D has a powerful motor capable of delivering 1,300 stitches/min.

Ease of Use

The build quality of Janome 990D is quite good, something that you normally expect from Janome. The stitch quality is very good and the machine has enough power to go through multiple layers of bulky fabrics.
