    This is absolutely the most wonderful machine I have owned. I didn't hesitate purchasing it from Overstock.com because I've always gotten quality merchandise, shipped fast with a good return policy. As a professional crafter for over 35 years, I have owned 3 other big name brands that couldn't come close to the Janome. I'm very sorry that I waited so long to make the purchase. When I think of the projects that I struggled with and wasted time on - only because I didn't know they could make a machine to stand up to my tasks. This machine is the quilter's best friend with all the decorative and applique stitches it does. When I construct tote bags and purses, I put a high demand on my machine by going over 6 to 8 thick layers of fabric and batting, etc. That is what took its toll on my other machines. The Janome just smiles and quietly proceeds. I can make everything in half the time. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the thread-cutting feature - a real time-saver when you don't have to pick up scissors everytime you finish a seam. I've even monogrammed my name on the products I make, and they look very professional! Can't wait to use the knee lift feature when I machine quilt and some of the special feet that were included. Well, I'm going to get back to my sewing now - I consider it "playtime" with my new Janome!!

  • AWESOME machine

    I love this machine. It has more stitches than I'll ever use, but very nice to have! I've had it for a year, and I've quilted tons of quilt, purses, etc on it. If you aren't a manual reader (me!) it's really easy to figure out on your own. But the manual is so easy to read. Much easier than some of the other sewing machine manuals i've tried to read.

  • Great machine

    I love this sewing machine! I've been using it for a few weeks now and it is just terrific. It is a very sturdy workhorse. Much nicer than the usual dinky little sewing machines. I've already used it to make clothes for my kids and three quilts. It has a large assortment of decorative stitches and comes with many useful presser feet. It is simple and easy to use if you've had any experience with sewing machines. The manual is clear and easy to understand. The separate bobbin winding motor is very practical and saves a lot of time when you don't have to stop and rethread the machine after winding a new bobbin. The thread cutting feature is also very practical. I truly LOVE this machine!

  • Sewing Machine

    I too absolutely love this sewing machine. This was a gift I bought for myself last Christmas. It has so many wonderful features that make my quilting and crafter projects even nicer and easier to produce than ever before. The feature I love to show off the most, is the button that cuts your thread at the end of your stitching. I LOVE THAT !!! I can't imagine what else a sewing machine could do that this one does not. The only disappointment I have is, I want the floor table/cabinet/stand that is designed to hold this sewing machine. Everywhere I look on the internet it is very expensive, for all there is to it. I am hoping that Overstock will locate some and offer it for sale to us as well.

  • Janome 6500

    I love this machine! I bought it based off reviews only, and I am so happy I did. This machine has more features than I'll ever use. It has a wonderful seam stitch. I love the bobbin winding feature; being able to have a separate thread and motor to do this is awesome! The button hole stitches are very nice too. I quilt and sew clothing, and this machine is wonderful for all. It has a very large area to accomodate quilts. I previously owned a Pfaff and this machine is so much nicer!

  • In Love with this Machine

    This was my second upgrade from my original Singer. I make quilts and clothes. I needed something faster than my NewHome that sews 700 sps. Donít let this price tag or all the buttons intimidate you. It is well worth every penny. This machine is extremely easy to learn and sews like a dream. I love the extra width lots of room to maneuver around. It is heavy so it wonít move around while working with big heavy quilts. The mechanism is smooth and steady. It is surprisingly quite for as fast as it goes. As long as I clean it every so often it doesnít jam or have problems. One of the best things I ever bought for myself is this machine.

  • This machine is beautiiful

    I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this machine is. For all of you quilters out that that are searching for the best machine for the best price, look no further. This machine is awesome. From the moment I removed this machine from the box, I knew it I had found a real jewel. It's heavy because unlike other machines that are made of plastic on the inside, this one has a steel frame which means that it will not break down easily in the future. It is so well made. The instruction manual is printed very clearly and very easy to follow. The machine is easy to thread with an automatic needle threader. It comes with the extension table. The work area is very large for any quilt The screen when you select what mode and what stitch you want tells you what stitch it's been adjusted to, what foot to change to, the stitch length and width, and you can edit this stitch and save it with their save mode. You can even add additional stitch patters to this so it will change back and forh automatically between the stitches. Very easy to assemble. I just can't say enough good things about this machine. Do not hesitate purchasing this machine.

  • Janome 6500P

    I don't think I will ever purchase another machine from Overstock. I had the machine for 3 weeks and it needed repair. I looked up the information on the web and "thought" I found an authorized repair shop. After paying for the repair, I called Janome and was advised that I would have had to ship it back to NJ from GA, absorb the cost of shipping. I was very disappointed. Sorry.

  • Great sewing machine

    I have been sewing for 25 years on the same Bernina. I wanted something that would last as long with a few more options. Janome is proudly American made which I really liked. The good: Very powerful and can go through many layers of fabric, somewhat quiet though not as quiet as I was expecting, easy to use, large cone thread holder, comes with many feet, very forgiving when using different thread sizes in bobbin and top thread, easy to thread, easy to adjust tension. The bad: when free motion quilting, the tension had to be adjusted about every 5 minutes because it pulled bobbin thread on the curves. (However, this is a common problem with most machines) I had to send the first machine back because the thread cutting mechanism was defective. My second machine works flawlessly.The lack of a hard case is REALLY irritating to me at this price point. The last somewhat "bad" thing about this machine is when you first start sewing it goes slow and then jumps into hyperdrive so that has been something to get used to (a lot of picking out seams due to jumping my fingers out of the way lest they get ran over). Overall an excellent machine. I would definately buy again.

  • Janome 6500

    After conferring with several of my quilting friends and relatives, I chose Janome. I wanted a machine to do basic quilting on with a few extras. So far, I have quilted three small quilts but have not mastered free motion quilting to my satisfaction. I love the knee-presser foot release and the thread cutter feature.
