What sort of thread does this machine take?
Do I need to buy cones of thread, or can I use my normal spools?

It's up to you.

This machine takes cones or spools, so you can either use your sewing threads, or specialty threads on cones for overlockers.

See how the cone holders can be removed easily off the spool pins, which allows for smaller spools of thread to be used.

The main thing to keep in mind is whether your thread is suitable to the fabric you are using. When in doubt, do a little test on a scrap of the fabric you intend to use.

What is the difference between serging, overlock, flatlock and coverstitch?

In general, if you're from North America, you use a serger, and if you are from the UK, NZ, or Australia, then you use an overlocker. The two terms are interchangeable and both refer to the same type of machine.

"Serging" or "overlocking"  is the act of "sewing" using a serger / overlocker.

Overlocking or Overlock (stitch) refers to a 4 thread serge / overlock stitch.

Flatlock is a technique in which two pieces of fabric are serged / overlocked together and then pulled apart slightly to achieve a flat stitch which connects the two pieces of fabric.

Coverstitch is the stitch that you see on ready to wear garments at hem lines.

Does this model do "coverstitch" as well?

No. This machine does not have a coverstitch - or coverhem, as it is sometimes called.

It is a standard overlocker that does three or four thread overlocking stitch, specifically for finishing edges on knits or woven fabrics.

To do coverstitch, you need to buy an expensive, high-end model, or a separate coverstitch machine.... and, coverstitch machines often don't do overlocking anyway.

Most domestic machine users are happily sewing with an overlocker along side their regular sewing machine. This will get most of your sewing needs covered.

If and when you find the needs to do lots of coverstitching, then consider investing in a separate coverstitch machine - like the Janome CoverPro. Otherwise there is no need for the extra expense.

Do I still need a separate sewing machine?

Yes. This machine is an overlocker, and it does NOT replace a regulare sewing machine.

The main function of the overlocker is to finish the raw edges to stop the fabric unravel or fray - so that the finished garment can be worn and washed!

Sure, by overlocking two pieces of fabrics together you've essentially join the pieces and made a seam. But the overlocking does NOT replace a regular straight seam done by a sewing machine.

This is because the sewing machine stitches hold the pieces together properly, while the overlocking stitches takes care of the raw edges. Different purposes altogether :-)

Just turn whatever you're wearing inside out and have a look - you'd see a row of straight stitching next to the overlocked edges.

Why should I shop with you over a dealer with a brick-and-mortar shop?

Check Out What Other Happy Janome 8002DX Owners Say About Their Overlocker...

"After quite a bit of research, I purchased this Janome overlocker for my wife.

She has been sewing for many years yet was slightly worried about owning an overlocker, believing they are complicated.

By using the supplied instructional DVD and learning about this machine before using it, she is thrilled with the results.

Now the machine gets used almost daily and she has zero complaints about the operation and capabilities of this overlocker.

She also says, "... now my work  has a 'professionally done look'..."

So if you are in the market for an overlocks, be sure to check this one out.

I'm certainly happy that I chose the 8002DX for my wife.... might otherwise never hear the end of it if I didn't."

David, a Happy Husband

"This overlocker has been just what I was hoping for.

I am a beginner with sewing and all the sewing machine shops wanted to sell me overlockers for $1000.00 and up, so I was really glad when I finally found this one on eBay - brand new in a box too!

I have been very pleased with the function and usability of this product especially for the quality, when the price is so very reasonable"

Olivia, a Happy Customer


"Everyone needs an overlocker, even better if you get a Janome one.

I don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to overlockers, and this machine was perfect.

I was able to thread it with just a little help from the DVD. It works like a dream.

My mother-in-law owns a very expensive overlocker that she paid well over $1000 for, and I feel my machine that I spent a fraction on works just as well. I like mine better too!

This is a great machine especially if you are new to sewing and just want something to help you finish edges.

I use mine for almost everything. I overlock the edges of fabric before I wash it, I overlock the edges of fabric before I sew them, I just love to overlock now."

Peta, a Happy Customer

"At First, I bought a Singer overlocker and was excited to begin sewing my first project. That was a huge mistake.

The thread on the Singer kept popping out of the correct tension all the time, no matter what I did. I tried tightening it several times, went back to directions repeatedly looking for what I could have done wrong, though everything appeared to have been done correctly.

The other major problem I had with the Singer was the machine jumped around a lot on my sewing table as it sewed. It didn't weigh enough to hold it in place, nor were there any suction cups on the bottom to keep it stable.

I took it back to the dealer, got my money back and found a Janome overlocker that didn't cost too much more.

The Janome threads beautifully AND keeps perfect tension, there are also little suction feet to hold the machine in place while sewing.No more chasing the machine around!

Going from the Singer to the Janome in the same day made it very clear to me that sometimes choosing the right brands ARE important.

As a side note, I asked my local repairman about the Singer and he says he won't carry them anymore because they break too often. As opposed to my Janome - 3 Months later and I haven't had a single problem - brilliant!"

Denise, a Happy Customer

"Fabulous machine!

Super quick learning curve - easy to thread (colour coded) and so easy to sew with.

Everything I make now looks so professional now... How did I ever get by without it?

I must admit, I was a little scared to buy an overlocker with all the comments about how hard they are to thread, let alone use, but it's not true with this model.

I would recommend the [Janome] 8002DX highly.

My friend looks at her"Baby Lock" machine with total disdain now... She wants a Janome like mine!"

Anne, a Happy Customer

"I was scared to death to try an overlocker, but had started quilting and got told to finish raw edges before pre-washing fabric, so I really needed to get one.

The reviews for this Janome overlocker were so positive, so I thought what the heck, I'll try it.

It is so simple and the directions are so easy to follow (even got a DVD).

I did manage to mess up the threads at first, but after that it has been easy.

I would definitely recommend this model to a beginner as an inexpensive way to get you started.... not to mention the price being very reasonable too."

Beth, a Happy Customer

very satisfied with product and service

By: on 19 January 2016

I have wanted an overlocker machine ages ago and finally got one with a reasonable price. Yay! It is an amazing product, really satisfied with it. Very easy to use, quiet machine, shipping is quite quick and the dvd definitely help a lot! Just a really small let down, no cover for the machine (could get dusty) and no box for the left over fabrics so a bit messy at the end but hey, it is really just a small thing to pick up. I am really happy with the service as well. A bit worried it is an used product at first, since the threads are already set up. But after look thru, the machine is definitely new and it is just a kind seller that set the machine for me so i don't have to go thru the annoying threading process. Thanks Shelley! Overall, it is an excellent product, love it and a great service!


Finally got my Janome overlocker

By: on 24 December 2014

I have been on the look out for a decent overlocker for quite some time after wearing out my previous machine. The price was fantastic, especially compared to the sale price of other inferior brands. A happy stitcher.
