Not great
 from South Carolina,  Aug 10, 2012

I was expecting more out of a Janome machine than what I got from this one. This is my first Janome, I purchased this product to have a sewing machine for light sewing such as hemming and repairing holes, etc. I previously had owned a Singer for 10 years after purchasing it in the 80s and had problems with it so I barely used it so I didn't want to get another Singer after experiencing problems with the bobbin and other irritating issues. So after hearing about how great the Janome sewing machines are suppose to be I thought I would get this one to use for light sewing such as hemming and repairs.. I guess I should have gotten a more expensive model because I just wasn't impressed with this one at all. I started out sewing fine for the first 10 minutes then the bobbin started tangling up underneath the needle and it went downhill from there. The speed was overall slow and the pressure foot would not lift up very high. I boxed it up and sent it back the next morning. I'm waiting to see if Overstock will reimburse me for the full amount as I received a disappointing email stating if the box had been opened I may not get a full refund. If so, I will never order from Overstock again. How are you to know if you like a product if you don't open the box? Doesn't make any sense to me and a bit unfair in this case.
