  • can't beat this machine, esp. at this price!

    My mother, a very experienced (and frugal) seamstress needed a new machine. I decided to buy her a new machine but I had to keep her needs in mind (not my preferences!) At this point, she has no interest in learning new features. For example, she did not want a feature like "needle-up /needle-down". She uses the handwheel when she needs to put the needle up or down. This machine does everything she needs (including a beautiful buttonhole) and she sews garments, slipcovers, curtains; and her work is top notch. Also, she hates paying any more than necessary, so she would have been really mad at me if I went and spent $350 on something similar at the local dealer. This refurbished Janome was the perfect choice and she absolutely loves the machine. It has a metal casing and it's heavier than the plastic models on the market (in a big box store). But it was still way lighter than a vintage Kenmore (my other choice for her). She needs to tuck it away when not in use, so a 35 pound vintage machine was too heavy. I tested it out, too. It has a beautiful stitch and it tuns very smoothly with no rattling around on the table. I bet this machine will be a workhorse for a good long while. I would use it, too- except I love all the bells and whistles on the fancier models.

  • Love my new Janome!

    I ordered this product after reading the reviews and just had to add my input after receiving and using this machine. Ordered on Saturday (non-shipping day) and received on Wednesday. I was so anxious I tracked its every move and was basically waiting at the door when FedEx showed up. I immediately unboxed the machine and used the directions to thread and wind the bobbin all within a few minutes. The machine appears to be BRAND new. I checked to make sure all the accessories were included, which they were. I had read reviews that the zipper foot did not work. UNTRUE! It does work but you just have to make sure your needle is set to the CENTER straight stitch option. It has LEFT, CENTER and RIGHT side straight stitching which I really love. I think it is important to mention that I am a novice sewer, certainly new to Janome but I was sewing literally within 10-15 minutes of it arriving on my doorstep. I have only previously taught myself to sew a few months ago on my grandmother's old Singer, so old she had it in storage and was using a new machine but I wanted it. I had no trouble with the directions for this machine, I found them to fairly straight forward, totally different than my Gram's old machine but I got it done really quickly. I was looking for an 'industrial' machine but dont have the funds for one now but this one, like my old Singer, goes through denim like butter. I actually went through 8 layers of denim with a strap I made to go on a purse. I made two mini purses with zippers for gifts within two days of receiving the machine. The key is to use the proper needle. I know people say to go slow through heavy fabric but I found it better for me to go quickly back and forth through the denim. When I went slow, the needle had a harder time piercing the first layer of the 8 layers. Probably because I left the needle on that came on the machine and did not change to a denim needle. But keep in mind it does come with several needles, seam ripper, screw driver, and all sorts of stuff. I have learned a lot about sewing since purchasing this machine, like how straight a stitch can be. LOL Also I learned about being able to use two thread holders so you can wind a bobbin without having to unthread your machine. You can also use the twin needle on this machine for double-edging or fancy stitches. You would just have to purchase the twin needle separately really cheaply, I checked. Also, I learned how to use the self threader on this machine. Never saw that before this machine but I use it each time I change thread. Lastly, Janome is the maker of many Kenmore machines, so if you like Kenmores, you will like this machine a LOT! The price, although it seems to have gone up a bit size I ordered mine two weeks ago, can not be beat. Even the same model of Kenmore is pricier. I checked because I'm considering ordering another one of these awesome machines (will use my 10% coupon Overstock sent me once I ordered)!

  • Rugged little workhorse!

    I love this little machine! Knowing Janome quality, I felt comfortable ordering a factory refurbished model. But, I didn't expect the easy, fluid mechanical running of this little machine which I use mercilessly for heavy-duty piecing and quilting... daily! I've gotten a quilting foot for it and a 1/4" foot, and it handles both "lighter" and "more bulky" loads with equal ease.It also gets hauled around in my machine trolley from home to quilting sites where I take it out, set it up, and start sewing again.... Maybe I should expect it, but I'm always amazed at how beautifully, simply it performs. It has the range of stitches I need and a constellation of others I haven't even tried out as yet...I really love it and feel confident knowing its substantial nature...

  • All good!

    This is the first product I've ordered from Overstock, and I have to say, first, that the service was excellent. It came in less than 48 hours - I ordered in the evening and received it two days later in the morning. The machine itself is fantastic. It's indistinguishable from brand new, except that the instruction manual is a photocopy, it runs like a dream, and I am thrilled with its sewing capabilities. The first thing I did was try every type of fabric combination, from silk chiffon to three layers of denim, and everything came out perfectly because of the fine adjustments that you can make. Also, the instructions are quite clear and very helpful. My "old" machine (only a few years old, a more expensive *****) had such incomprehensible directions for the button holing that I had to go back to the store for help. Definitely worth every penny. Thanks. Overstock!

  • Janome Heavy Duty

    I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews where the machine was broken or parts were missing, but I ordered it anyway. I was very pleasantly suprised. It was in perfect condition, like brand new. I do tons of sewing as I sell baby quilts, so I needed a machine that lasts and is heavy duty and can sew thru thick fabrics. I have purchased about 3 to 4 machines in the past 5 years because they always break down and have to be serviced. The service started to cost more than the machine was worth, especially the machines that are computerized. . This machine is a joy to work with. It sews through thick fabrics and does it very quickly too. Its not the quietest machine I have had, but its not too bad. And after sewing a few quilts, I usually have to clean out all the lint in the machine. The other machines I have had were difficult to clean out and sometimes I could not get them back together correctly, so yeah, another service bill. But this one is a snap to clean up. I really love this machine.....and highly recommend it...

  • refurbish not great, but love the machine now!

    I was very excited to receive a new sewing machine as mine was a " high school special" from years past. The price and features were just what i was looking for and Janome has a good reputation. Problem arrived when i took the machine out of the box on the first sewing project. The feed did not work. I was aware that it was a refurbished model, so rather than spend time and about the same money in postage, I had the feed problem corrected at by local repair shop in 2 days. It was an inconveniece and expense, however, the machine is perfect now and I love it. Beware of refurbished, but it still is a value price, even with the repair.

  • Waste of money

    My previous machine was a Singer which I loved. My singer met with an unfortunate accident while being transported on a wheeled cart. I decided to buy this one. It sat in the corner still in the box for a little over a year because I had no cause to use it. When I finally opened it I noticed the machine was scratched up. I'm not much into esthetics, I just want a machine that works. I tried to wind the bobbin and for some reason the bobbin wound strangely. Very uneven, bottom heavy. I tried to sew with the machine. The bobbin thread was very hard to catch and the bobbin housing was very wobbly inside. Seemed like I could pull the whole thing out with my fingers if I tried hard enough. It sewed ok for about 10 minutes then a pop and no more. It made a lot of noise but the needle was still and wouldn't move. It moved when I turned the wheel manually. I opened her up and noticed the inside of the machine, the workings and everything, was scratched up too. Sewing machines are very straighforward and uncomplicated. Take it out of the box, wind it up and sew. Too late to return. Next time I will hit a garage sale and buy an old Singer. What a whopping disappointment.

  • Great machine at a very good price

    I LOVE this machine. I was already a fan of Janome machines and this one is a great value for its combination of features and quality. It's easy to thread, has a variety of useful stitches and sews very smoothly. I DID have an issue with the same model several months ago when I ordered it from Overstock-I must have gotten a lemon, because it made a grinding sound that set my teeth on edge--but the one I just got sews like a dream. (FYI-THe defective one was returned easily with no hassle for a full refund.)

  • Only one small problem

    Plastic needle threader was broken upon reciept. Ordered replacement from supplier of machine and todate have not gotten it. It has been two weeks. They said it would be put in the mail that day in Tenn. Must come by pack mule. Other wise it is the sweetest, smothest, and strongest sewing machine my wife had had. It replaced a Brothers machine which was beginning to sound like a model T Ford. or a thrashing machine.
