The JUKI MO-1000's air threading technology is ridiculously quick + simple!  Skip to the 3:20 mark of this video and watch Vanessa show you how here

The air-threading isn't the only feature that separates this overlocker from the others on the market in this price range.  In my opinion, it's solid construction is beautifully balanced, meaning this workhorse of a machine isn't going to bounce, rattle and vibrate around on your sewing table like others can do when you really put the foot down.  

I've found the Juki MO-1000 to also be very quiet for an overlocker.  Perhaps this is due to the solid construction mentioned above, but it is noticeably quieter to operate, even at high speeds than my previous Janome overlocker.  This is incredibly handy if your sewing time is governed by nap time or happens when all the others in your household are asleep.  

It gives you beautiful and even overlocked stitches every time.  We all know consistency is key when creating professional finishes, and the Juki MO-1000 does not disappoint.  

The tension, cutting width and differential feed are easily adjustable so you can switch quickly from a lightweight woven viscose to a heavy French Terry knit smoothly.  I always like to suggest when you receive your MO-1000, spend some time running different fabrics under the overlocker and once you find the settings that work for each fabric, jot the machine settings down in your sewing journal.  You'll thank me later! 

Inside the front cover you'll find your MO-1000 screwdriver, tweezers and cleaning brush, all easily accessible and housed in their own little home.  (I can't tell you how many times I've had to deep dive through my sewing tools storage to find these items!)  I love that Juki have designed this overlocker with that in mind!
