Axe Yamazaki Electric Sewing Machine KA-01

Multipurpose sewing machine

Probably because of their long craftsmanship traditions, the Japanese are still very invested in making stuff with their hands. From origami paper-folding to leather work, carpentry, and cooking, there are few things for which you won't find equipment and an extensive bibliography on how to use it. Sewing is one of them, and one that has a very real and practical aspect: mending fabric that still has some mileage in it. If you share this passion – or even if you've always wanted to try your hand at it but never had the right equipment – the Axe Yamazaki Electric Sewing Machine KA-01 is here to satisfy all your needs.

The fact that the Axe Yamazaki Electric Sewing Machine KA-01 manages to pack so many features into a unit measuring only 30 x 13.2 x 26.4 cm (11.8 x 5.2 x 10.4") and weighing just 2.6 kg (5.7 lb) isn't so surprising considering its maker, Osaka-based Axe Yamazaki, has been an industry leader since 1946. With its one-button access to thin cloth mode, automatic thread tension adjustment, automatic needle threader, reverse stitching, five embroidery designs and 12 sewing patterns instantly accessible through a rotary selector, and a wealth of accessories including three needles, two bobbins, and many presser feet, this is a machine that allows you to fix or make from scratch practically anything!
