The MCS-1500 Features

Cover stitch

Since the stitching stretches, it is ideal for stretch fabrics.

4-thread cover stitch

3-thread cover stitch (wide)

3-thread cover stitch (narrow)


Chain Stitch

Since the lower thread forms a chain on the wrong side of the fabric, the stitch is strong when it is stretched, making it ideal for stitching the waist and side seams of pants. It also does well as decorative stitching for necklines.


Presser foot lifter

The presser foot is higher at its tip in order to allow the fabric to easily be inserted at the start of sewing. In addition, raising the presser foot lifter to the first position raises the presser foot 8 mm.

Further raising the presser foot lifter raises the presser foot to 10 mm. This allows you to easily insert even thick layers of fabric, for example, when attaching ribbing, under the presser foot.


Differential feed adjustment

Adjust the differential feed to sew beautiful finishes, even with stretch fabrics such as knits and georgette.

Super easy looper threading

The looper can easily be threaded since it can be lowered at the press of a button.

Extension plate with guide lines

The seam guide lines on the extension plate are a useful aid for sewing.


Adjustable presser foot pressure

The presser foot pressure can be adjusted according to the type of fabric being sewn.

Presser foot with guide

A presser foot equipped with a guide that presses down on both the left and right sides is provided as a standard accessory.

Exterior thread cutter

The exterior thread cutter is useful when removing the fabric after raising the presser foot at the end of sewing.


Other features include selectable stitch width and easy stitch length adjustments.

Great Machine

By: on 16 November 2018
This is a great little machine, only received mine 24 hours ago, was really nervous about buying online but the machine came fully threaded and it was easy to see how to thread it. There are lots of youtube clips made by Juki that have lots of detail on this machine. Was also surprised how ‘solid’ this machine feels, what I mean by this is it doesn’t feel cheap at all. When in operation it is also very quiet.
