Is the Janome Coverpro 2000 CPX coverstitch machine a worthwhile investment or is it actually a bad machine? In this extensive review, I tackle the good and bad with this polarising coverstitch machine and also give lots of troubleshooting tips. I’ve had mine for almost two years now and feel pretty qualified to give my two cents on a machine that I feel is getting an unfair amount of heat from some people on the internet.
Not saying that there are not some bad eggs out there, but I’m confident to say that plenty of errors are also related to how people are setting up the machine, often in combination with unrealistic expectations on what a midprice domestic coverstitch machine can do.
Now, I’m not saying it is the best coverstitch machine out there, but the point I’m trying to make is that sometimes coverstitch machines can be sensitive, fickle creatures that need the proper attention.
