    This is a very capable basic sewing machine that does what I need. The presser foot is quite high and it sings through four layers of corduroy with ease. Having used and owned several machines eons ago, I decided on this one for several reasons 1. My poor man's budget as close to $100 as possible. 2. I wanted a mechanical machine that does all basic stitches well, and it does so far. I only trust expensive electronics. 3. I read about 100+ reviews on this and other brands in my price range and this won. They named it right, as"Easy-to-Use". It came with needles(one installed), four bobbins. I read the manual and after buying thread and winding one bobbin I did a test seam. I only needed to adjust the tension one step tighter and BINGO! I hemmed ten pairs of new pants I'd bought. What it would have cost me to pay to have them hemmed paid for the Janome. I found it'll go through the six layers on the felled seam with help some gentle feeding/ pulling from sewing direction. The feed dogs struggle with this without helping it and a manual turn of the flywheel to start, because there's so much more pressure lifting high. Most importantly the pressure foot has plenty of clearance, I'm thing even a medium weight denim. Now that it paid for itself in first use I'll be sewing some pants for my 7 year old grandson that can't seem to find a pair that fits, but Mom just bought six new pairs two months ago. Anywho, if you need a basic work horse you can't go wrong with this.

    Overstock had this sewing machine on sale and was a good deal. It is a lightweight machine and is easy to carry. It sees like a more expensive machine. The stitches are good and tight! The motor sounds like it is strong not like some of the cheaper sewing machines.

    Sews through several layers of fabric. I like to shorten jeans and this machine can handle the heavy fabric. It’s threads the needle with ease. So far I love it..

    Love it. Easy to learn how to use, strong. Seam came undone on some towels. Stitched it, and i can't tell where the repair was. Love the drop in bobbin.

    Was easy to set up. Very basic sewing machine but what I need for sewing. Would recommend this for beginners and the auto needle is great. Not to heavy to move around

    I like the ease with which the bobbin can be retrieved and wound and replaced. This machine is a great little machine for any beginner or for someone who just needs the basic sewing experience, plus a little more. I like the different button hole settings. I was a little less pleased with the bobbin winding post being made of plastic. All in All, it is a sweet little machine and gives no trouble all. I would recommend it to anyone needing a good, basic sewing machine for a great price.

    I love this Janome sewing machine, but the main reason is because I already have a Janome, but wait....the real reason is...my previous Janome was purchased in the year 2000!!!! And it's still working great!!! However, since it was my Birthday and Mother's Day, my husband asked if I'd like a new one, so naturally, I said yes!!! Would you believe that I've only had it oiled 5 times and only one repair and it only needed a new feeder (foot). I sew and sell doll clothing every day and can't be without my Janome. Now, I have a spare.

    This is simple and effective. I have had very expensive machines, but this gets the job done without all the bells and whistle. I would recommend to people who are looking for a basic model with some power.

    Both overstock.com and Janome really miss the mark with this one. I got the order, paid for the order and in the time the order was paid for Overstock managed to get a service fee on me that I didn't see for several months. So now the account I thought I paid off is owing close to $ for a missed fee and that seems a little like robbery to me. They will not waive the fees and are letting report badly to my credit. Shame on you overstock.com. I will never use your services or your items again.

  • Machine was new, right out the box, but I had to return it because it got stuck in back stitch. It was faulty. Maybe it was just that one, but I would not buy it again.
