How to Thread a Coverstitch Machine | Janome CoverPro 1000CPX | Pink Castle Fabrics | SEWING REPORT


we will be threading the Janome
coverstitch machine this is the CoverPro 1000CPX the first thing you need to do is put
all your thread cones on the holders like this and run your threads up
through this guide up top that’s where you’re going to do first there is a
little guide and if your thread is a little bit tougher you can also run this
through an additional time and put it through the second hole here get your
threads through this metal thread guide all at once just save yourself some work
on the bat on the back end so run it through back to front and then you’re
actually going to loop this around or like sort of candy cane stripe it I
actually use a pair of tweezers just in case you need to pull some threads out
and this comes with the machine which is great so one two three four obviously if
you don’t aren’t using one of the needles just skip it alright so now that
I’ve got all these sort of candy cane in here I’m going to run all of these
threads through the tension disc right here so run them through the tension
disc and right now it’s set on the the default and you’re just going to want to
take your thread and just sandwich it between here and you should feel you
should feel some tension here so you want to run it through these metal
guides and up around this metal guide appear much like a conventional sewing
machine alright and don’t try this at home but I’m actually going to turn on
the light just so I can see down here because it’s a little hard okay so now
you’ve got your first thread through the guide you’re going to run it through
this metal guide here and through this one over here as well there we go and
now you’ve got your first needle in so you’re going to be threading this first
needle here and I’m actually going to be using the needle threader that came with
the machine so we’re just going to push it through and it may take you a few
tries there we go and you want to and what it does is it pushes the thread
through the needle and then leave the little loop here and you’re just going
to take this little hook that came with it
and then grab thread in again it may take you a few tries especially if the
loop is pretty small it should help you a little bit with
threading here we go so now you’ve got your first needle threaded I’m going to
do the second one now and just the same thing just run it through these guides
and this is very much like just threading regular old domestic alright
put it through this middle guide here again these the you may sort of get
tangled up but it’ll be okay and you’re going to want to put it line it up just
so that there’s a little metal finger separating all the threads that will
kind of that’ll kind of help a little bit and you can raise your pressure
raise your presser foot up if you want to get more thread here and then push it
down if you don’t want it to have as much give right now now I’m going to use
the needle threader again and this thing is actually pretty handy little tool
I’ve never really seen a needle threader like this before but it actually did it
actually has helped me so surprised the prize there we go and then you can
actually try to grab here could leave a little loop here you can actually again
try to grab it through here and we’re actually going to try to run all our
thread under the machine once under the presser foot once we get them all in
place alright here is our last needle this is the third Neal so we’re just
running it down again through here running it through this guide and then
this little guide here what if you guys and I’m just going to get a little more
thread here just because it didn’t need a little more play here but that’s what
these tension discs do is just control how much thread is coming out and what
what kind of how much resistance it gives when you try to pull on it now
same thing and this actually this needle threader works out better than I
expected take this and use a little loop you can
still hook and then hook this and now you’ve got all your needles threaded so
now we’re going to move on to the looper to open up the front part just slide it
to the right and then pull towards you and you’ll see this little network down
here and actually it’s got the fill color-coded guide as well I’m actually
going to give it a little more thread here by lifting up lifting up the
presser foot all right so now what you’re going to want to do is run this
just down through this metal guide there’s no place for it to catch so it’s
just going to sort of be hanging here and you might need to adjust this a
little bit this is the part where you’re going to need your tweezers because
you’re going to have to put the thread through all three of these guides here
and there’s a little hole so now you have to thread it through this guide
here and see this little plastic knob here you need to pull this just pull it
and this part will pop out there’s a guy down at the bottom and you’re going to
want to make sure your thread goes through here so just pop it in here send
now and just make sure it doesn’t get caught on anything you’re going to want
to put your thread in here and now you’re going to pop this back in so now
you’ve got your looper threaded so you can close this part here and now let’s
test it out to see if it’s actually sewing and once you actually start
stitching all these threads will be pulled under the presser foot I’ve got
my stitch length around three so now let’s start start color stitching after
you stitch a few times you can actually pull these so that they’re all under the
presser foot presser foot down I just need to pull my bottom thread out just
to make sure doesn’t caught in here and now you can do some beautiful cover
stitching and check that out and that’s really a major reason why I love this
machine it is so easy and quick to thread now again this is the Janome

  1. I have the 2000CPX. This video has helped with the threading far better than the manual. I haven't tried running the machine yet. That is the next challenge.

  2. How can I find extra screws to hold the needles in , I bought my machine second hand and missing a screw to hold the third needle in! Help?

  3. This is very informative. I received this machine yesterday and was frustrated with it. Thank you. You are a great teacher/sales person. Just two minor notes on what I did. I gave up on threading the needle with the threader. My old-fashioned way is to wet the needle eye, then use eyebrow tweezers to put the thread through the eye (I find eyebrow tweezers get a better hold of the thread). I have two other machines with the threading zigamagig which has not worked for me. I wet the needle and not the thread. If I can’t find the needle hole, I put a white piece of paper or fabric behind the needle so that I can see it better. Another thing I did is putting the leftmost thread through the left guide plate and not the right side as shown in Page 22 of the Janome Instruction Book. Again, thank you for helping us out on learning how to operate a serger-type machine, which are not easy by far.
