      The bobbin keeps getting out of the holder. It does get all tangled up and I have had 2 of them and they both had issues.

      I have had this machine for almost a year. I previously worked in a quilt shop and this was the make and model of my work machine. I sew almost daily on this machine, piecing and quilting. It is a work horse! It was a great price and great quality!

      I love this machine. I took it out of the box and started sewing. I use many of the features. I like that there is more room between the machine wall and the needle. When I'm stuffing a massive vintage dress through to do a quick repair or style change, it makes a difference

      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.

    • Good for quilting; not so good for other items
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Great machine
      Verified Purchase

      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!

      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!
