    dream machine!

    Posted by C. Bennett on 12th Apr 2018

    We just got this machine where I work. I LOVE it!! We sew some very thick items. Our previous machine just couldn't hack it. We kept taking it in for service. This one is very different. It sews through thick layers of canvas seams & strapping like butter. I'm going to have to get one for home use since I have now been spoiled at work! :)

    janome great for heavy duty sewing

    Posted by becky on 12th Apr 2018

    I love this machine. It will sew thru several thicknesses of fabric and not even bog down. Would recommend it to everyone that needs a heavy-duty machine.

    Awesome Machine For Its Purpose

    Posted by 172wildwood on 23rd Sep 2016

    I bought this machine about 5 years ago to use with a Grace quilt frame. The frame has been in storage, but the machine has become my "go to" for everything it will do (opposed to my Janome Horizon 7700QCP). Straight stitch only. Extremely heavy duty. Bobbins larger and different. Super fast. The fastest on "turtle" is faster than I can go after 35 years of sewing/quilting. Great tension. Great for freemotion. I do have the cover plate for FMQ but great tip to use Supreme Slider. I used a piece of cardboard before I got the plate. Also use the FMQ hopping foot. If you are looking for sturdy, mechanical, fast, straight stitch, this is THE One.

    Great machine.

    Posted by Susan on 21st Sep 2016

    I've had troubles with less expensive machines since my old Viking gave up the ghost years ago. And by less expensive, I bought a $1,000 Janome with all kinds of fancy stitches (which I didn't ever use). This is sturdy and a workhorse. I use it for making quilts and have never had any trouble at all. The needle threader works but it a tad more awkward than others I've had but it has a thread cutter, press a button and both threads cut. It's worth the trade off to spend an extra second or two threading the needle.

    Everything I needed!

    Posted by Lori Turner on 28th Apr 2013

    Bought this sewing machine to use with my Hinterberg frame and it is perfect. I am new to quilting and didn't want to break the bank and this was a perfect compromise. Having a little trouble with the needle threaded but with practice I think I can master it. Sew Vac was the best price and I was able to secure a coupon for even more savings and it arrived when it was suppose to. Overall very happy. Thanks.

    So far great sewing machine!

    Posted by Cynthia on 6th Aug 2012

    I have just used it as a sewing machine so far and it is wonderful. When my quilting frame arrives I will get it set up with that and try it out. I am sure it will work great since it sews great.
