The Janome FM725 is a needle felting machine - a felting machine does not sew, but uses barbed needles to mesh fabrics together. The fibers mingle to create new color and texture combinations that simply cannot be achieved with embroidery, applique, or any other kind of needlework. This needle felting machine does not require thread, a bobbin, or any previous sewing experience.
Bonus Bundle Includes: Janome FM725 Instruction DVD & a 3 Year Nationwide Extended Warranty Plan
Janome Company Warranty

I love my machine!! I knew it to be trustworthy already because my school's fibers lab owns one and I spent a lot of time using it. The only issue I've ever had is the needles breaking occasionally, if you are trying to felt a particularly chunky piece too fast. Take it slow! I use mine with the foot up though, since I am usually felting a piece that I've wet felted and it's quite plushy so it doesn't move with the foot down. You can get pretty detailed with this machine but I find it's best used for felting larger pieces, either to solidify wet felted pieces or to make images or patterns or color work on an existing piece. I've also used it to make 3D work. The needles punch noticeable lines in your piece so you can even make subtle designs with that.
I never thought I was interested in needle felting until I was sitting in front of one of these. There is no learning curve and you can be as creative as you want. Within minutes I was trying to felt many types of fabrics and even felted some trims onto wool with amazing effects. If you like your projects to be one of a kind and really reflect your creativity - get this.
I have waited for this machine for a long time and now that it is here I am delighted. It is beyond my wildest expectations. I never used this machine but knew it would be a great fit and it is. I am in heaven.
This is a Christmas Gift so I really can't write a review on it. I have a Jenome 9000 Embroidery machine and love it. So I am looking forward to using the felting machine. But I can't till after Christmas.
Do have a questions about my 9000. Do you have any blank cards for it, that I can put designs on? Please let me know.
Thank you and I would be glad to write a review after I play with my machine.
