The Janome 2212 is a great sewing machine, especially for beginners and those who are looking for a less complicated machine. When we set out to find a sewing machine, we wanted to find one that met four criteria:
A.) It had to be affordable. We did not have several hundred dollars to invest in a sewing machine.
B.) We wanted it to be mechanical. Computerized machines are nice, but they tend to break down more often and are more complicated to use. A good mechanical machine with a metal body will last a lifetime; once the computer breaks down in a computerized machine, it's done for. (Some of them can be fixed, but it's cheaper to buy a new machine.)
C.) The machine had to be dependable.
D.) We wanted a machine that could be used for quilting and other projects that require several layers. Too many of the less-expensive machines are so cheaply made or so lightweight that they can't be used for any serious work.

The 2212 fit all of these criteria. We decided on it after an extensive search. We read all of the reviews for this and several other machines and then went to a local sewing center to try it out. We've had the machine for two weeks now and have used all of the different features. It works great. We've also made several big projects using this machine, so we know it works well. We finished an art bag for a cousin's birthday last night. Some of the stitches had to go through 10 layers, most of them heavyweight, and the machine didn't so much as hiccup.

One word of caution: if you buy this machine online, be sure that the retailer which is actually selling you the machine is an authorized Janome dealer. Otherwise, the 25-year warranty that comes with the machine is void.

This is a great machine that's done everything I need, and does it well. I've owned it for a while now, I sew on it several hours a week, usually in one big sewing block. It quilts just fine, hems jeans (with the help of a jean-a-ma-jig) there are many feet available for it very inexpensively, both Janome and generic feet. If you're new to sewing and want a simple, reliable machine that won't give you a headache, I definitely recommend this machine. It is a vertical bobbin, and while the trend right now is horizontal bobbins, there are some advantages to the vertical bobbin. For instance, it's really easy to clear thread jams, and you can clear them without removing your project from the machine, you can change bobbins without moving your project, and many people prefer vertical bobbin when doing free motion quilting. Another great thing about this machine, if you take up sewing and decide you can't continue, you won't feel bad about giving this machine to someone else because a) it's a good solid machine and b) it wasn't expensive. If you decide to keep sewing and want to upgrade to something fancy later, you still don't have to feel guilty because a) you can still take it to classes easily (15 lbs so easy to transport) b) it wasn't expensive and c) it's always good to have a reliable back-up machine in case your fancy one breaks down or your friend needs to borrow it, or you want to teach kids in your neighborhood to sew, but don't want to teach them on your expensive machine. So in the end, it's a simple basic machine that works very well, and because it's simple, it will last a long time as per the 25 year warranty.

Got this for a 10-year-old niece to start her sewing lessons on. I have two full size Janomes and am VERY IMPRESSED with this little machine! I know from experience Janomes are very dependable, sturdy workhorses that keep going for years, and mine have never needed maintenance besides cleaning dust out of the bobbin case. It stitches out and sounds exactly like my big machines - very smooth and precise and all the stitches are perfect. There's definitely no reduction in quality with the reduction in size/weight. Weighs a little less than 13#, so it would be a perfect weight to carry to classes vs 20#. But it's almost the same measurements as the full size so you have almost the full size workspace - both are 15" long, the 2212 is 1" shorter overall at 11" tall vs 12", and 6" deep front to back vs 7" . The harp or throat area (opening) is the same 6.5" from the needle to the motor casing, and only 1/2" shorter at 4.5" vs 5" high. So if you are able to quilt on a standard machine, close to the same size roll of fabric/batting would go through this too. Baby quilts or throws - no problem. I have made full size quilts on my standard size Janome. Doesn't have a lot besides straight stitch and zigzag, but would be perfect for piecing and basic garment/craft construction. Stitch length is adjustable from 0 to 4 on straight stitch, zigzag, tricot/darning stitch, knit stitch, blind hem stitch, and decorative shell stitch. Width is adjustable too on zigzag, it's not pre-set like on Hello Kitty, but the other non-stretch stitches are preset width. All the stretch stitches are pre-set length and width and can't be adjusted - straight stretch, rickrack, smocking, decorative, and blanket stitch.

It does have drop feed-dog for free motion stitching.
