    This Janome machine was a good investment. While the features aren’t as plentiful as some other models, the machine works very well.

    I have used it for zippers and oilcloth (even the two together) and it had no problem with either.

    The only issue I have found is the bobbin tends to get caught up in itself (this could be user error but I am more convinced it’s a design flaw). I wish the bobbin design was different (maybe a drop in rather than a shuttle) but other than that this machine has held up very well.

    The storage compartment in the front is a nice addition. I hadn’t sewn in years when I bought this and the instructions were very straightforward and the machine was simple enough for me to use that I have been able to produce several items. It’s lightweight and small which makes it easy to store.

    Pros: works well, is quiet, easy to use, light weight, compact, has extra storage built in, comes with cover and carrying handle

    Cons: bobbin is frustrating and jams occasionally

    Just for some history, I’m a very basic sewer (children’s clothing, pillows, skirts and dresses for myself) with several years of sewing under my belt. I don’t do anything fancy or overly detailed, so I don’t need more than a pretty basic machine. In the past I have used the Janome Gem Gold (very good but REALLY basic) and a Brother swing arm machine (hated that thing from the moment I took it out of the box). I came running back to Janome after my experience with the Brother.

    This little machine is a workhorse. I have sewn countless dresses, jumpers, pajama sets and trousers for my children, along with several skirts and dresses for myself. I’ve sewn multiple layers of flannel and fleece with absolutely NO problem. The needle is easy to thread, all of the functions are pretty intuitive and the dial is super easy to read (personally not a fan of buttons and digital stuff – more things than can break). The foot is very easy to remove/re-attach when placing a zipper, etc.
    Once you get the hang of it, the bobbin is easy to install; however, I have had a few issues with thread being a tangled mess right after inserting a new bobbin. This may be my fault, so I’m not taking stars off for this. Also, the bobbin winder can be a bit persnickety (at least on mine) – I have to keep the bobbin in just the right spot for it to wind properly. Again, I’m not exactly an expert so this may well by an error on my part.

    Aside from a couple of the very minor bobbin issue, I absolutely love this machine and highly recommend it to anyone looking to do basic, straightforward sewing projects.

    UPDATE:
    I found that the issue with the bobbin came from the bobbin itself. I had purchased a set of bobbins that purported to work on Janome machines (among others). WRONG. When I went back to the Janome bobbin that came with the machine (quite by accident – it just happened to have the color thread I needed already wound on it) I had absolutely no issues. Be sure to only use Janome bobbins – don’t trust other bobbins that claim to work on a Janome machine. 😀

    This machine delivers quality sewing in a small package. I use it primarily for quilt piecing. It’s a wonderful weight for carrying to classes.This is not a machine you can use for everything, but is a good second machine.
    Very nice for lightweight sewing.
    Amazon was easy to order from & satisfied all my requirements.
