I learned on this machine in my introduction to sewing class at my CC. Grew up with a grandma who was a talented seamstress but had never really used a machine. This was easy for me to use and now I am natural at it. Great craftsmanship but also lightweight and not bulky. i love this machine
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Great picture of front of machine- shows different stitch options well
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fairly lightweight, not intimidating, easily access to all features
This is a great sewing machine. I have never used a sewing machine before and I wanted a machine that I could easily learn on but continue to use as I got more experienced. Just through reading the instructions, I was able to easily learn how to get it started. I was sewing in no time (maybe not perfectly, but I'm practicing!). There are a lot of unique stitch patterns to choose from. The machine is sturdy and well built. I would recommend this machine to anyone who wants to learn to sew or who already knows how to sew but wants to update their machine :)
Once you go Janome you never go back to anything else! It's so smooth and quiet. The precision is outstanding. I've had my Janome for a year now and I am still so in love with it. I do quilts up to a full size on it, I'm sure I could do queen size without any trouble, also. I just haven't wanted to make one that big, but it certainly would be possible.
