Over all I am pleased with this machine. It was a gift for a friend who I am teaching to sew. One thing I am disappointed in is their stitch description for straight stitches. It is very decieving & caused her a great deal of frustration & discouragement until I figured out why.

It is NOT accurate. They give 3 pictures on the machine with A1 A2 A3
The A1 photo shows a stitch that appears to be a nice stitch for regular work, when in reality it is a very tight stitch, barely moving the needle. When she tried to move use it the needle would jam down into the machine & she would need to wait for me to come back & take it out. This happened 3 times, I live 30 minutes away, so could not always come right back.

It is A2 that is your standard stitch, used for most items. The book does not explain it any better. Once we figured this out, all is fine & we are very happy with the machine.

Sometimes, shortcuts are NOT the better way. They need to take a few minutes & truly explain their machine accurately & in detail. There are a lot of people coming back to the old arts, Janome is a good machine. I have used mine for many years now. This is why I chose it as the brand to gift to my friend. I would recommend it again.

When I ordered this, it had been 20 years since I sewed anything. I took sewing in high school so I knew the basics. My last machine, a $100 Brother purchased late 1980's, lasted only 6 years so I knew I didn't want another Brother and I'd read where Janome makes good machines. And after using this one, I agree.

Points I'd like to make about this machine:

► Made in Thailand.
► Machine sounds like it has a good solid motor. Doesn't sound like it's straining.
► Right out of the box, it sews perfectly with no need to adjust tension, etc.
► The needle plate has several seam allowance guides in fractions and millimeters stamped into it so you can easily follow the appropriate seam allowance for whatever you are making.
► Very easy to thread, even though there is no auto needle threader; I had no trouble even though I *should* be wearing bifocals for close-up work.
► Easily adapts from sewing 2-3 thicknesses of light/medium denim to silky polyester without changing tension or needle.
► Front (sideways) loading bobbin, accessed after removing what Janome calls and "extension table" (the part that's removed to make it a free-arm machine.)
► Small "tool" kit included which has a zipper foot, sliding buttonhole foot, blind hem foot, 3 bobbins, a set of needles, seam ripper, and a screwdriver. A dust cover is also provided but it's more on the line of a what a cheap plastic shower curtain is made of, with a slit cut in the top for the handle to poke through. This machine requires oiling and you will have to provide your own oil.

My first sewing machine lasted over thirty years without any problems never. My second electronic machine is now in repairs after less than three years. I ordered this simple mechanical machine without any bells and whistles and am glad I did. It works quite well, stitches evenly without problems. It makes basic buttonholes simple and easy. I will never buy another electronic machine again, there too many things to go wrong. Yes the machine is a very sturdy plastic and not too heavy. It meets all my sewing needs and I am glad I purchased it. I will update this review later to let it be known how the machine does over more time. This one thing I have t say is that more modern is not always better, sometimes old is better.

Again, I want to say that the ease of making simple button holes with just simple turns of the dial is a great feature on this machine. On my electronic model-in the repair shop making buttonholes was a finicky many stepped operation that did not always produce a good buttonhole. I suspect that someone might buy this machine for this feature alone, even if they have an electronic machine.

Just got back my "repaired" electronic machine- it still didn't work, time for it to retire to the garbage can.

I am someone who has sewn for years but just very basic mending or pillow making, nothing complicated. I got tired of my old machine with the very touchy tension. I was afraid to adjust it at all, the tiniest bump would make it go crazy. This machine is very basic, like me, and so far sews perfectly. I took a sewing class with it and had no problems.

Easy to setup and use. I have always had problems on previous Singer machines with the bobbin tangles. No tangles here with the vertical Bobbin.

We needed a basic machine for a family member who is learning how to so. This is the product the teacher suggested to her students. It's not used on a daily basis, but whenever it is used, it seems to work quite well.

This machine is perfect for me. As a beginner, I purposely chose an uncomplicated machine for easy learning. The easy and simplicity does not sacrifice performance, however! A friend of mine is very experienced and sews for me frequently. She gave this machine her stamp of approval!
