LOVE LOVE LOVE this sewing machine! I can't find one thing that I don't like about it! I was looking for a sewing machine with some speed and it has it! Overstock had it shipped out the very next day and was here in no time. I would recommend this machine and Overstock to everyone! In fact...I just ordered a new serger too :)
This is a great workhorse machine, bought new to replace a restock machine that developed a fault. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because I was really looking for a heavy duty machine and the build on this one is lighter and a little cheaper than the original machine I bought. That said it is plowing through piecing and quilting like a champ. Just be aware of how much fluff can accumulate under the face plate which can cause some really nasty thread snarls.
I have a seamstress for over 50 years, I had been using singer machines for the better part of that time, however the last singer I bought was nothing but trouble. It always had the bobbin case jam up on me, I decided to try the Janome and I have been very pleased with it, it is a well built machine, sews with good tight stiches, this machine out sews my singer in every way, I just love it and anyone who chooses to buy it will not be disappointed, I love this machine

I love my new sewing machine but I am having a problem with the tension. As soon as I put in a new bobbin I have to work on getting the tension right again. Once I get it right it sew alright. I only use the bobbins that came with the machine. I am going to contact the Janome with this problem.
I have this Machine- I belong to a small group and we have a room to leave the machine so I do not have to carry it back and forth. However it is not very heavy and works good to take to classes or group. I have had my machine just over a year, I bought it new from a Janome dealer. It is good for piecing, is not quiet but has a good stitch. I only paid $139.00 for mine which may have been on sale but that is the only thing I see wrong with this offer. I have had good prices on other sewing Items I bought from overstock.
This is a basic, no-frills, mechanical sewing machine, which is precisely what I was looking for. I didn't want a computerized machine with a lot of bells and whistles. I wanted a basic machine that would last for many, many years. This machine has all the basic stitches that I was looking for (as well as a few more). I like four-step buttonholes, so I don't mind that it doesn't have a one-step automatic buttonhole. I really like the drop in bobbin so I can see how much thread is left. This machine is very smooth even at high speeds. It's heavy enough that it doesn't bounce around, but it's light enough to carry easily. I do wish it came with a cover and a few more presser feet, but at the price it would be hard to beat.
