Two Advanced LCD Touchscreens

Edit, design and create on the large, 5.3" x 8.5" LCD touchscreen, showing you the results in amazing clarity. Then when you're ready to sew or embroider, the second screen, an industry first, will allow you to fine-tune your stitches, tension, foot pressure, and more!

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.

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.

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, but we've taken it to the next level with AcuFeed Flex Plus. 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.

More Built-in Embroidery!

1,230 built-in embroidery designs are standard, including Designer Collections, ten embroidery fonts, and In-the-Hoop projects that will keep you engaged and creative for hours. In addition, the included Embroidery Link app will allow you to customize and edit those same designs, adding and removing elements to create one-of-a-kind embroidery that your whole family will enjoy.

Embroidery Positioning 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.

More Stitches!

The Continental M17 includes an amazing array of built-in stitches and embroidery designs. You'll find 850 built-in stitches, including 13 different styles of buttonholes (and with Stitch Composer your stitch count is infinite). Three fonts provide variety for decorative stitch monogramming.

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.

Floating Mode

While in floating mode, the Continental M17 will not extend full pressure to the presser foot while feeding fabric. This will protect delicate or high pile fabrics like velvet.

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.

Wirelessly Interact With your Embroidery and Sewing Functions

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.

Quilting Hoop ASQ27d

The included quilting hoop is 10.6” x 10.6” (270mm x 270mm). It includes Janome’s original magnetic hoop without an internal frame, allowing more accurate alignment of quilt embroidery. When used with the AcuSetter app, you will have effortlessly continuous embroidery quilting.

Computerized One Touch Needle Plate Converter

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.

Professional Grade Needle Plate, HP foot & HP2 foot

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.

Storage Compartments in Extension Tables

Hidden in the extension table arms on the embroidery bed are convenient storage bins. Perfect for storing needle plates, threads, bobbins, or anything else you’d like to have handy while sewing.
