I love this machine. I had a Singer machine for many years but I most sew leather handbags now and the Singer just was not strong enough to handle that type of material. I have sewn many handbags since receiving this machine in the mail and its wonderful. The machine glides easily over the leather and no more broken needles!!! I love this machine, definitely worth the money because I able to make lots of handbags for my Etsy shop and craft shows. Great machine!

For years, I had a sturdy, hard-working New Home sewing machine. I sewed lots of kids clothes, costumes, turtlenecks for me, decorating projects, and on all kinds of fabrics. we decided I needed a new machine (What? They have self-threaders now?) when I moved across the country, so I left it behind. I searched to find another machine like it, and then discovered New Home is now Janome. I wanted a mechanical, heavy duty machine, not a computer model with lots of stitches I would never use. This machine is *exactly* what I was looking for! It sews beautifully, over many layers of fabric, including denim when hemming jeans. It also handles very light fabrics without stretching or pulling. It is quiet, and it *does* have a self-threader, which is fantastic! This is an updated version of the sewing machine I used for decades and loved, and I couldn't be happier! It's perfect.
This is a great machine. I actually initially purchased this machine from another competitor, and received one which had been previously opened and returned instead of a new machine. Having paid for a new machine, not a used one, I returned it to the competitor, and found this machine on Overstock.com for the same price the competitor was charging. With my Overstock points, and a sale coupon, I was actually able to purchase a brand new machine for thirty dollars less. It arrived in a timely fashion in pristine factory condition, and I am already enjoying its use. It works well for crafts, as well as apparel. I am extremely pleased with the purchase. I have learned a valuable lesson from this experience, and I will check Overstock before I go to another online store for all my future purchases.
I was ready to replace my sewing machine for the 3rd time and decided to upgrade to a heavy duty machine that would perform well when I used it for slipcovers. The Janome HD3000 fits the bill for me. Easy to operate, handles heavier fabric with ease as well as everyday sewing. Nothing complicated with this machine.

I purchased another national legendary brand claiming to be a heavy-duty sewing machine for heavy-duty project. It was unable to do heavy-duty work despite its reputation.. So I searched and searched for another brand. Overstock had wonderful reviews for the Janome HD3000 Sewing Machine. I read all of the reviews and I decided to try again. I purchased the sewing machine and it sews through several layers of medium-weight canvas, like a breeze. Thank you Janome for creating a long-sought-after heavy-duty sewing machine that really works! BRAVO!
