machine well worth the money ... I had to return.. Overstock made it fast and simple ...thank you. I love brother machines...Read More
I love my Janome 6500! This is an awesome sewing machine. Nice & heavy with a great table around it for quilting or other sewing. I'm so happy to have it.Read More
Top of the line machine - have been quilting with it for several months and very very happy!Read More
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. Dont 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 wont 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 doesnt jam or have problems. One of the best things I ever bought for myself is this machine.Read More
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.Read More
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!!Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
I am an intermediate sewer who sews patchwork quilts, applique quilts, handbags and clothing. My introductory sewing machine broke after many years of sewing abuse and so I wanted to upgrade. I especially like the larger throat that makes free motion quilting easier and the substantial weight of the machine means that I won't have to worry about simultaneously moving my machine when quilting. However, I realized belatedly that this machine does not have a free arm so that makes sewing bags, linings, sleeves, and other things that are round in diameter much more difficult so I'll likely have to get another machine with a free arm. Set up was easy and figuring out the features was quick with the enclosed user's manual. The alphabet sewing is a nice touch for personalizing quilts. I did have some initial problems with the automatic thread cutter; it kept jamming so I had to re thread the machine and put in a new bobbin. I also find that the pressure foot on this machine is quite heavy and I do have to lighten the pressure foot more than recommended in the manual. Also, this machine has a difficult time sewing through dense or thick material and I have to actually pull the fabric to help it move along the feed dogs. This is a good machine, but for the cost I expected it to be stronger than my introductory sewing machine, but it's not. Maybe I just had a very good introductory sewing machine.Read More
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.Read More
