Janome ML544D Overlocker


The Janome ML544D overlocker sits nicely in the middle of the Janome overlocker range. Being a MyLock series it has a better inlay tension system than the more traditional 4-knobs-at-the-front system, and an easy conversion to rolled hem. What we especially like about this model is value for money, especially if you have little-ones-who-love-ruffles to sew for: the ML544D has 4 bonus feet included in the box. This overlocker is our favourite model at the $700 price point – RRP is $699.

  • Overlocker – trims fabric and finishes neatly
  • Sewing speed 1,300 stitches per minute
  • Change to rolled hem tension settings is super easy
  • Nice range of included bonus feet
  • 1 year warranty
  • Includes a free 1-hour lesson with Penny valued at $45😊

Not Local?

Thanks for thinking of us! Mike and I strongly believe that a sewing machine needs the support of a local retailer, especially when it comes to your warranty. Because of this, we don’t ship our machines.
