Product information

A great introduction to computerised sewing, the Janome DC3050 is an impressive first level model packed full of features.

Fully computerised, the DC3050 is ideal for those with some sewing machine experience looking to get more creative with their projects. This model is suitable for use with most fabrics including lightweight, medium and heavyweight fabrics such as cotton, wool and tweed making it a real workhorse. It has a simple 1-step buttonhole function with a choice of 3 styles and a further 47 stitches including decorative so you can create the perfect finish every time. Getting started with the DC3050 couldn’t be easier – the automatic needle threader takes away the manual work that is required of a mechanical machine, whilst the needle up/down button programmes the needle to finish in the up position or in the fabric. A view-through bobbin cover allows you to see when you’re low on thread and with the side thread cutter, finishing off is neat.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 104 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy to use! I took ages to decide to invest in a new machine and how I wish I'd done it earlier. I really enjoy using this machine. From the very first attempt everything has worked brilliantly. I've not made anything complicated yet, but I've tried out all the stitches and used up plenty of oddments and now I'm choosing something serious to make. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant machine I'd had my previous machine - a Bernina - for nearly 40 years until it decided to blow up on me just before it's 'big' birthday! I did quite a lot of research online before deciding on the Janome and, now, having used it for the last 2 months, I'm very pleased with it. It's computerised, has a wide variety of stitches, comes complete with a number of presser feet and a thorough instruction manual. It copes with everything I've asked it to do - denim, voile, etc and it is very easy to use. 06 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant machine Am very pleased with the Janome sewing machine ,very easy to use and has a lot of decorative stitches ,speed controller ,and the drop in bobbin with clear cover plate so that you know when the bobbin is running out . 15 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent instruction booklet First of all I have to commend Olga, the wonderful, patient salesperson at JL, Bluewater, for taking so much time to demonstrate and explain the qualities of the Janome DC3050. I have set it up and tried out many of the functions and found the instruction booklet clear and easy to follow. I'm now looking forward to getting on with a project! 13 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by New lease of life Not used a sewing machine for over 35 years but just collected this machine click and collect at local Waitrose Saturday afternoon, As soon as I did a test run on a scrap piece of fabric I knew this machine and I are destined to spend many happy hours together. Ok so only made a couple of cushion covers yesterday but absolutely delighted with this machine. Having facility to have needle stop up or down at the end of a stitching run is great. And glad I went for automatic tension control machine as I will be using a variety of fabrics. 25 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant birthday present Bought as a present to replace my ancient model - I'd forgotten how good it feels to sew well as my old one was frustrating to use. Both my daughters now have 'sewing machine envy'! 10 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic machine - not disappointed! Bought this whilst on an offer price at JL based on other good reviews. I've not been disappointed! So far it's easy to get to grips with, quiet, manoeuvrable and I'm really pleased with the projects I've done already. I particularly like the speed control (I've not had this on my previous machine and I found for doing free motion embroidery it's really helpful) and the range of stitches. Great buying advice also from JL Newcastle store, where the haberdashery team member who was also a tailoress showed me all the machine's features and answered my questions. Fantastic buy! 08 January 2016
