Janome ThreadBanger TB12 Sewing Machine

Inspired by ThreadBanger.com, the TB12 is a cast aluminum body machine that is based on a former model so popular that long-time Janome fans have been begging to see it again. So, here it is upgraded and updated for ThreadBanger.

The TB12 has 12 actual stitches, including a number of stretch stitches, and multiple stitch functions, including length adjustment.

EZ change feet and a simple 4-step buttonhole give you endless options for creativity, and a built-in one-hand thread cutter and simple reverse lever make finishing off stitching a breeze. It’s a hardcore, no-frills workdog–perfect for on-the-go DIY.
