Dual Interactive LCD Touchscreens

Using the large right touchscreen is like working on your favorite tablet. The advanced touchscreen shows all of the information you need to sew with ease. Middle screen is easily accessible to quickly adjust any stitch settings. Right Screen – LCD Full-color touchscreen 5.3” x 8.5” Middle Screen – LCD Touchscreen 3.8” x 2.1”


Ample Work Area and Ergonomic Design

The seamless, heavy-duty powder-coated, all-metal flatbed offers an uninterrupted, large sewing area with 13.5 inches (343mm) to the right of the needle. With a 5.51 inch (140mm) workspace height and 3.15″ of space above the needle plate, you’ll complete any sewing project with ease on the Continental M17.


AcuStitch Regulator (A.S.R.)

A Janome first! Our new stitch regulation system comes standard with the CM17 and includes four feet; closed-toe, open-toe, clear view, and the exclusive Ruler Work foot so that all of your free-motion needs are covered. With the added benefit of being able to set the sensitivity of the sensor; you can adjust the Regulation as your skills build.

Ruler Work Mode

Expand your quilting options and take advantage of the wide array of precision templates on the market for ruler-guided quilting. Engage the Ruler Work foot to safely follow along the guiding edge of precision cut templates. Achieve beautiful and consistent quilting results previously only available to longarm quilters.

Professional Grade Needle Plate and Feet

Utilize these narrow-gauge industrial-type feet for curves and precise topstitching. They provide excellent ease of control and superior visibility. They are sized perfectly for creating 1/4″ seams, achieving accurate stitches, and perfect starts on any type of fabric.


AcuFeed Flex Fabric Plus

Our AcuFeed Layered Fabric Feeding System has long been legendary in the sewing and quilting world for its exceptional precision and power. We’ve taken it to the next level with AcuFeed Flex Plus. The system is still removable, but adding and removing it from the machine has become more advanced, adding another layer of reliability and control. After attaching the AcuFeed foot, touch the AcuFeed icon on your screen to engage or disengage the dedicated motor designed specifically for this feature!

Extra Large Embroidery Area

Our largest hoops and embroidery area ever! Our RE46d Hoop offers 11.3” x 18.2” of the embroidery area. Created with Carbon Fiber infused plastic, this large hoop is 10X stronger than metal! No other machine can offer such a large area and guarantee the stability and precision of Janome embroidery, even when embroidering at speeds up to 1200spm. Four included hoops have been created with a new easy-to-hoop lever system and hoop size detection. Bonus Quilt Kit consists of the AcuFil hoop, an excellent tool for quilting in the hoop.

Computerized One Touch Needle Plate

Using the right tools at the right time is essential in sewing. A straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference when using lightweight fabrics or piecing quilts. Our Computerized One Touch Plate Converter allows you to easily switch and use the perfect plate for your sewing project. Push the on-screen button to release the plate and place a new one in place. The M17 comes with three standard needle plates: zigzag, straight stitch, and HP.  

Optical Bobbin Sensor

Our advanced Optical Bobbin Monitoring System is for everyone who has sewn a long seam, only to find that your bobbin thread ran out after the first few inches. Janome Technology allows the M17 to constantly watch your bobbin thread supply while sewing so that you will receive a warning as soon as the bobbin thread gets low, not when it’s too late at the end of your seam. When embroidering or sewing large projects, it is sometimes difficult to track how much bobbin thread is left. The bobbin thread sensor alerts you when your bobbin thread is running low, so you’re never caught in the middle of a seam or embroider color.

Wireless Connectivity

Your options to learn about and use the CM17 are limitless. Use the interactive AcuAssist to become proficient with its intuitive and vast features. With Embroidery Link, you can resize, redesign, and layout embroidery without sitting at your machine. And, with AcuSetter, AcuSketch, and the Screensaver app, you can take the personalization of your machine and embroidery capabilities to the next level.


New Easy Tighten Lever

If you found that you sometimes needed a third hand to tighten the screws on embroidery hoops, you’ll love the Easy Tightening Lever! Set your fabric and stabilizer, then flip the lever to lock it into place. One easy step to perfectly taught hooping.


Embroidery Position Marker

Using the newest embroidery foot from Janome, the laser aligning feature can show the position of your needle on the fabric below. This feature lets you see exactly where your needle will strike before stitching begins for extreme precision. Perfect for designs that need to be placed in precisely the correct position. Use the laser with the baste function to ensure your design is exactly where you want it to be.


Thumb Wheel

Located to the right of the needle. This industry-first is a great convenience feature that lets you raise or lower the needle without having to reach over to the handwheel.


Built-in Sewing and Quilting Applications

Sewing-Application Sewing-Application

The sewing and quilting application pages provide a simple and accurate solution to some of the more difficult procedures and techniques found in today’s sewing. By funneling your settings down to a simple one- or two-step selection, you now can achieve professional results every time, eliminating guesswork.
