Rated 5 out of 5 by Iki- miki Love it as a beginner
I had just basic stitching in my home economics subject when i was in highschool. Meaning, that was 2 decades ago. I just watched some Janome computerized sewing machine tutorial in youtube which visual step by step is very helpful than paper manual instruction. Just hope Janome in the future will include dvd tutorial or instructions. I was now altering my loose dresses, uniforms though not perfectly done but enough to be wearable. Overall, I love it as a beginner. I just need to practice the needle threader because I'm still not confident and consistently successful in threading using the needle threader assist. I am really enjoying it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Toebean Great sewing machine
I love Janomes. I sold a very expensive Viking to buy this. It sews so much better. I make handbags and need to sew through lots of thickness and this machine never misses a beat. I also like that it's a basic machine without all the many stitches that I'll never use. Absolutely a great value and the payment plan is perfect.

My first "new" sewing machine. This was a great buy. I have used several different machines including my old New Home which I wanted to replace - I made a great choice with this Janome (New Home). I love that the set up is the same as my old New Home so it is easy to use, the digital screen has large numbers so you can see what you are doing. This is a four star for me because the length of the cord is very short, and cheap feeling, The finger buttons on the front plate curve down with the machine, I wish they were just right up front on the flat part of the machine. My use for this machine is quilting.

I received this machine about 4 days earlier then anticipated. I am not very experienced in sewing, but this machine works beautiful. I have a Brother Cs6000i that is almost impossible for me to get the tension right..this machine it was easy, and it takes all the good sewing threads without problems. Just the feel of this machine vs my other machine told me this was well made. Sorry I waited so long to order this.

I am a very busy crafter and my old machine from a very popular company that starts with an S pooped out. I have an etsy shop and was desperate for a new machine because I had orders to fill. I have not seen a bad review for this machine, QVC or otherwise. This machine is amazing! I love the top loading bobbin with the clear window where you can see when you are about to run out of thread. I love the option of sewing without the pedal! It makes winding the bobbin effortless.
The fact that it is computerized makes it more powerful and sturdy. I cannot say enough about how much I love this sewing machine. My best friend also wants to get this machine! It's amazing!!!

Its very smooth and very durable. Janome also has a patented bobbin system so thread rarely gets junked up under it. This is a workhorse machine so not a lot of fancy stitches

I absolutely LOVE this machine!! It was everything I had hoped it would be and more!! It runs so smooth and the other reviewers were right in that it has a nice little hum to it while you're sewing, I cannot recommend this enough and I have been telling everyone I know that if they're in the market for a new machine, whether they are beginners or advanced sewists, they'll love this sewing machine.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GramandPans LOVE this machine!!
I purchased this machine several months ago on Easy Pay. My other machine was a 30 year old basic Pfaff Hobby that still works great. I have some basic sewing knowledge and skills. This Janome is easy to use, sews well and I have not had any sort of issue with it. I have sewn a brocade bathrobe and have done some boat upholstery using marine vinyl without any problem. I am taking my basic skills and expanding them with this machine. I am going to get one for my daughter who wants to learn how to sew. Having the same machine will make it easier to help her over long distance and I feel confident that this Janome will make her as happy as it makes me!
