LOVE this sewing machine. Been sewing for 40 years and this is the best machine I've had. Good quality for your money, if you can't afford an expensive machine.
The Janome Magnolia 7330 is a "beginner's" sewing machine, according to some sewing forums, but my feeling is that it really is a workhorse that does most things an average sewist or quilter wants to do, and while it doesn't have all the features of a very expensive model, it delivers sturdy performance and enough bells and whistles to make it my new favorite "go-to" machine.
What it looks like:
The Magnolia line is an affordable line of machines including sergers. The 7330 is the top of this line and competes with the Decor models (such as the 2010) and the Threadbanger TB30. It is larger than the Gems (used for schools and portability) and smaller and less feature-rich than the Memory Craft and higher Decor models. What this all means is that if you are looking for a basic machine that does everyday tasks and quilting, this is a good machine at the right price point. What you will need to decide is how many extras you need based on your sewing tasks.
The machine has smooth lines--a sewing table with rounded edges covers the free arm and contains an accessory box. The machine is a warm white, and the front has a couple of flowers as decoration in yellow and pink. I like more serious-looking designs and even the goth style of the Threadbanger, but the Magnolia had some features that made me choose it over the TB-30.
The weight is about 15 pounds and can be carried with a built-in top handle. No case comes with the Magnolia; you can choose to add a hard case top, but you also might use a padded tote if you go to sewing classes or events.
The best feature, and the one that had me choose the 7330 over the DC2010 was the auto start-stop. This is a way to sew without the foot pedal. I had started sewing and was sewing until recently with a knee-lever. The coordination of foot up and down while moving fabric if you are quilting is not as easy as either a knee-lever or no pedal or lever at all. It's one less movement to coordinate.
To use the hands free, you choose a top speed with a speed push bar on the front, and press START. The machine ramps up to your chosen speed and you can move fabric (for freestyle quilting) or just pay attention to the fabric as the feed dogs move the piece through.
There is a needle up-needle down button; it has memory meaning you can press needle-down and every time you stop, the needle remembers its start position (up or down.) For quilting, again, this is fabulous. If you are stitching a design, you can simply stop, have the needle drop down and you can pivot on the stitch. You can handle this by hand on any machine, even a treadle, but you have to REMEMBER to drop the needle before pivoting, The needle memory and foot-free operation were what I really wanted most, along with good buttonhole variation, so this made the 7330 a top contender.
There is also a needle threader; handy if you wear bifocals.
There are 30 decorative and utility stitches (the DC2010 has 50, including heirloom stitches, fyi.) There are six buttonholes including standard dense, keyhole, stretch (for knits), hand-stitch look (like hand buttonhole stitch), laddered and rounded. The buttonhole uses a button sensor; plug a button into the back of the buttonhole foot, drop down the sensor lever and the hole will be the right size for your button.
One feature on the Magnolia that was NOT on the TB30 Threadbanger (which is quite similar in all other respects) is a darning stitch that uses the buttonhole foot. While you can drop the feed dogs in both machines and darn freehand, this quick mending feature decided me against the nice decorative stitches and easier front panel of the Threadbanger.
The machine will punch through 4 to 6 layers of tee shirt material (I tried this) but I am not sure how well this will do on layers of denim, even with a sturdier needle. Generally, machines such as the Magnolia cannot handle multiple layers of heavy canvas or denim but I have a "gut" Elna that can pound through nearly anything.
Few accessory feet come with the 7330. Only a satin stitch foot, regular presser foot, a zipper foot and a buttonhole foot. If you need a stitch-in-the-ditch guide foot, a hemmer, ruffler, walking foot or other fancy foot (piping or cording foot, pintuck) you have to pony up extra.
The button sewing feature was a bit difficult to use compared to my Elna 1010. You push a button under the satin foot (has a space underneath), direct the needle to the left hole while using the zigzag stitch, adjust stitch width to the right to hit the right hole and then zig on slow for about 10 stitches. I found it almost impossible to position a small shirt button that had a more rounded rim than a standard flat shirt button. An open-toe foot may solve this.
There are no fancy heirloom stitches beyond the useful blanket stitch and herringbone and a pretty leaf, star and scallop or two. No ladder stitch or eyelet or Parisian stitch. If you like heirloom sewing on linens, you have to move up to the DC2010 and give up the foot-free stitching, or go to the next level of machine with better feed system and--pay fifty percent more.
For free quilting, home mending and standard home garment and decorative sewing, the Magnolia 7330 has a lot of bang for the buck. It is almost indistinguishable from the slightly more expensive TB30, and has features that are absent from the bottom of the Decor line 2010. For the price point, this is a great machine for average sewing and the foot-free features make this more efficient and easy to use.

I have had a number of machines and this one is hands down the best! I had a sewing machine repair person recommend it, and she was right! So easy to use. Sews like butter! Beautiful stitching. Very quiet. Well made. Love this machine.
I have had this for almost 2 months now and it's a great machine for the price. I love the bobbin system, never have any problems at all with it. I had a Bernina before but ended up having to give it away when we moved across the country. This runs a bit different then my Bernina did but it's also 1/4 of the price. I'm teaching my daughter to sew with it and for her it's perfect. There's a ton for her to learn and it does everything she wants to do. I wish it had a few more bells and whistles which just makes me think I am more intermediate than I thought I was when I chose the machine. I'm going to definitely give this to my daughter and get the Janome Memory Craft somewhere down the road. But for now this does me well and it's a fun, no hassle, machine.
I was looking for my first sewing machine after using my mom's machine for years. I wanted something that could handle heavy fabrics, and had a few bells and whistles. My plan was to go to the local vac and sew shop around the corner, try a few machines and go from there. What I ended up doing was researching on the web, and after reading hundreds of reviews, came across the Janome 7330. Nowhere could I find a single negative comment about this machine. Hoping I made the right choice, I ordered it and when it arrived, immediately got to work finishing some half done projects.
Its quiet. You don't have to yell to be heard over this machine.
Its able to handle several layers of heavy fabric- I tried it out on a courderoy jacket, a fleece cape with a satin lining, and a few other things with several layers to sew through. It barely even slowed down when it got to the tough parts. I recently put it to the test with several layers of vinyl and heavy drapery fabric together and it slogged on through even when I thought it couldn't possibly do it.
It can sew your buttons on for you. This is a huge perk for me as I tend to avoid patterns with buttons because I really hate sewing them on. Just lower the feed dogs, set the stitch to zig zag at the right width for your button holes, and go.
Its super easy to change the stitch and adjust the length/width.
The work light is very bright- excellent since the area I am using it is rather low-light.
I can't seem to get the buttonholer to work, but I had this problem on my mom's last two machines too. Pretty sure its something I am doing and not the machine itself. Even without it, setting the stitch to a tight zig zag and manually stitching the right shape was a breeze.
All in all, from what I've used it so far, I am extremely pleased with this machine and am very happy to call it my own. I don't feel I could have made a better choice. If you have the budget for this machine, read the reviews, do your homework, and if it seems like a good fit, you probably will not be disappointed in it. Its a GREAT machine! Do yourself a favor and read the manual. There's a lot of info in there that you can really use.
I'm editing to add that I've been using this machine for 5 months now, and am still in love with it. Its given me no problems at all and I have used it many projects. Do take care to remove your pins rather then sewing over them though as this machine will bend, break, or swallow them whole without warning.
EDIT: I've had this machine for five years now and only after recently going on YouTube was I able to find out how to use the buttonholer. See my attached photo. The white lever directly to the left of the needle is not the correct lever to pull down to use the buttonholer attachment. As far as I can see, it does absolutely nothing. The lever in the very back that is black is the one you want. So, after 5 years of trying to make a buttonhole, I can now do so easily and perfectly. Machine still works great and I've had no issues with it.
