Company Profile



Formally known as 'New Home', Janome Sewing Machines of Japan are the new brand to have. Janome UK was established in 1969 as New Home Sewing Machine Co Ltd and changed its name to Janome in the mid 1990's.


The word Janome means "eye of the snake" in Japanese. At that time, the round bobbin system was the most advanced technology replacing the traditional long shuttle type in sewing machines. As the new round bobbin looks like a snakes eye, the name was chosen.
