There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
It does have drop feed-dog for free motion stitching. For bobbin winding you pull out the handwheel, very easy to do. The bobbin case is in front instead of top-loading if that is an issue with you, it doesn't appear to have the thread tangling problems that frontloading Singers do. It does not have an automatic needle threader, needle up/down button, or adjustable presser foot pressure. If these options are important you need to upgrade to a more expensive model. For a basic sew & go or beginner machine at a great price, I don't think the 2212 can be beat.
FEET: It requires a phillips screwdriver to remove the snap-on shank, which is not included. If you buy extra feet for it, make sure you get feet made for the 5mm front-load bobbin style, as the needle is in a different spot and can't accept generic or other Janome feet made for 7mm top-loading, unless there is a wide opening for the needle. The right toe of a 7mm will barely touch the feed dog as it's too wide. Generic straight-stitch feet won't work, the needle will hit metal. You canNOT use a standard Janome or generic spring-load darning/FMQ foot because the needle shaft of this machine is shorter than normal, and it cannot raise the hopping foot high enough to move the fabric. Look for Janome brand darning foot for front-load machines.
UPDATE 2-14-12: Just finished a 50x60 rag quilt made from two layers quilting cotton with flannel for the batting. The 2212 didn't balk or complain at sewing 6 layers together. Of course it's louder when sewing through thick layers but all other machines are too. I was able to join the blocks without a walking foot, but joining long strips of blocks required a walking foot because it would eventually start pushing the top layer forward. Since I clip the seam allowances at the ends of the blocks before joining strips, I don't have to sew 12 layers like some people make rag quilts, I doubt the 2212 could do 12. If you need a walking foot, be sure to get the Janome front-loading 5mm foot, the generic and other brands of 7mm will work but the needle ends up on the left and it's hard to tell where your seam is going to end up.
The only 'con' is it being front-loading bobbin as a beginner machine for a young girl, as my niece did have thread jams until she got used to turning the wheel to get the needle in the right spot. Once she got used to it, no more jams. The wheel must be hand turned to get the needle positioned correctly before starting a new seam, or will jam every time you start stitching, as will all other brands of front-loaders. It's just the 'nature of the beast' and I'm not lowering my 5 star rating for it. As I've sewn many years, it didn't take long for me to automatically turn the handwheel and get the needle in position for the next seam before ever lifting the presser foot to remove the fabric and pull out the thread tails. No more jams. Just be aware, a beginner will have a harder time than with a top-loader. The Janome quality is there and I expect it to last for years trouble-free :o))
