My New Sewing Machine

ThreadBanger machines are sewing machines designed especially for Do-It-Yourselfers.  Inspired by ThreadBanger.com, a web site that brings together people sharing DIY fashion ideas, tips and advice, Janome's ThreadBanger machines are the perfect tools for DIY sewists.
The TB30 is just as tough as the TB12, but a little more sophisticated. It has 30 actual stitches, 6 one-step buttonholes, a built-in One-Hand Needle Threader, and Stitch Width and Length adjustments. To top it off, easy to use features such as Direct Stitch Selection Buttons make sewing a snap. There are three pressure adjustment levels for sewing a greater variety of fabrics, and a Needle Up/Down Button.  Also, the Start/Stop Button allows you to sew without using the foot control! AND, if you press it and hold it down, it will sew very slowly, so you can be as exact as you want.
Top Features:
  • Ultra-sturdy design
  • Computerized precision
  • Free-arm for sewing pant hems, wrist cuffs, etc
  • Built-in needle threader
  • Manual thread cutter
  • Adjustable tension
  • Adjustable speed control - control speed from the machine with more precision than a foot control
  • LED display
  • Adjustable stitch width and length
  • Stitch elongation - stretch a decorative stitch by up to 5 times its normal length without losing density
  • Easy push-button controls
  • 30 stitches, including 6 one-step buttonholes that sew according to the size of your button
  • Up/down needle position button:  Allows you to select whether the needle stays down in the fabric every time you stop sewing or comes up out of the fabric.
  • Auto-lock stitch button - sews locking stitches at the push of a button, then stops
  • Reverse stitch
  • Start/stop button - allows you to run the machine without using the foot control!
  • Feed balance dial
  • Bobbin winder
  • Carrying handle
  • Drop-feed for free-motion sewing
  • Adjustable presser foot pressure
  • Easy top-loading bobbin with a transparent cover plate so you can monitor thread supply
  • Seam guides on needle plate are marked in both fractional inches and millimeters
  • Can sew one iteration of a decorative stitch, allowing you to create unique stitch combinations for interesting effects
  • Displays LED error codes and audio beeps to inform you of a problem
  • Janome 25-Year Limited Warranty
