This popular JANOMEmachine caters to all levels of sewing, with easy stitch selection, drop sew bobbin, adjustable foot pressure, built in thread cutter AND comes with a custom fitted extension table! Also powerful enough for dense materials or super thick upholstery fabric.
The Janome DC6050 is one of the easiest machines on the market to use. Typically $899, it is an incredible deal at the moment for under $800. First of all, the Janome DC6050 has an intuitive LCD screen with direct stitch selection. This means you can easily pick the stitches you want without scrolling through a long list. That being said, all 50 stitches are conveniently displayed on the front of the machine. So, when you want to use a blanket stitch for your quilts or do some applique, you can see what the stitch looks like beforehand.
The LCD screen will also tell you which foot you need to use with a stitch and the machine will automatically set your stitch length, width and tension. But don’t worry, if you know better, you can easily change these defaults to give your project the look you want to create. Finally, when you finish a section, there is an automatic thread cutter so the machine will lock off and cut your thread in the bobbin area at the push of a button.
The DC6050 can sew anything!
The Janome DC6050 has 6 levels of foot pressure so you can increase it for sheer fabrics like silk and chiffon or decrease it for canvas and denim, giving you the best-looking stitches every time. The foot pressure, as well as the extra high lift, are also fantastic for when you’re doing a bit of quilting. Now you can get that bulky quilt with batting under the presser foot and adjust the pressure, so it’s just right. Need a bit of extra room? For a limited time, the DC6050 comes with an extension table. Furthermore, just remove the table and your accessory box to reveal the free arm for sleeves or to take up your jeans.
Last but not least is the automatic buttonhole feature. This machine features 3 beautiful buttonholes that you can do in one step. No more spending valuable time to measure it out, stitch up one side and then reverse down to finish it off. Just put your R foot on, insert your button into the slot and push the ‘go’ button, the machine will do it all of you.

Janome Zipper foot ‘E’
You can find zippers in all areas of craft, clothing, accessories as well as home decor. While there are several variations of zipper feet available, your machine comes with the common Zipper ‘E’ Foot. It has a clip-bar on both the left and right, allowing you to move the foot on either side of the zipper teeth and get as close as possible to either side allowing for a smooth finish.
Janome Blind hem Foot ‘G’
Perfect hems are hard, that’s why your Janome comes with the Blind Hem foot which is ideal for trousers and skirts for instance. The guide forms the hem while you’re sewing and the foot features grooves on the underside which allow your hem to sit correctly to give you neat, perfect hems every time.
Janome Overcast foot ‘C’
The Overcast foot is used to finish your edges neatly, it has forming fingers to keep your fabric from gathering and a brush to prevent frayed edges from pulling up with each stitch. All you need to do is cut your edges neatly and use this foot to achieve beautiful edges your projects without an overlocker!
Janome 1/4″ seam foot ‘O’
The 1/4″ seam foot is the most popular seam guide accessory for achieving straight even seams every time! The guide attachment extends before the foot and guides your fabric in at a consistent width. It is an essential foot if you want to quilt.
Janome Satin Stitch foot ‘F’
The ‘F’ Foot is designed with a clear short nose for a better finish on decorative projects. You can add a beautiful satin stitch along the hem or use any one of the many applique stitches to attach patches as well as accent clothes and bags.
Janome Automatic Buttonhole foot ‘R’
Now you can do a buttonhole in one easy step, unlike older machines that take up to 4x longer! The ‘R’ foot uses your button to size up the perfect buttonhole and frames it automatically. So, all you need to do is lower the button sew lever, and away you go! For tricky to sew fabrics, there’s also a stabiliser attachment available.
Janome Extension Table
You need a bigger workspace so you can work on your quilts and blankets without obstruction. To make the working surface larger you can add a specially fitted table to your machine. For smaller projects, you can remove the accessory box from the front of the machine to work with cuffs and sleeves using the free arm.
Most modern machines nowadays use plastic bobbins because metal bobbins can damage your machine. This little spool forms the stitch underneath, and no, you can never have too many bobbins!
The average sewist uses a size 14/90 sharp needle for most sewing, but there are many types of needles out there. It’s also recommended that you change your needle every 6 – 8 sewing hours because they can become blunt.
Janome Spool Caps
Your machine comes with spool caps to use on the horizontal spool pin so your thread will wind off correctly. The spool cap holds the reel in place so that it doesn’t dance around on the spool pin and cause you tension issues. You will get a small and large spool cap, but we recommend using the small spool cap for as it doesn’t interfere with the thread delivery.
Additional spool pin
The additional spool pin goes into the small slot on the top of the machine and is commonly used for twin needlework. This gives you two parallel stitches on top and a zigzag underneath, giving your hems a professional look as well as great-looking decorative work.
All other standard accessories are little things to help maintain your machine. There is a lint brush for cleaning out the bobbin case as well as a screw key. If you have any other enquires about these items, just let us know, and we can help you identify them and their potential uses.
We hope this helps you know what you’re looking for. You’re another step closer to finding your perfect machine!
