First off the color is absolutely beautiful; I got the one that looks like the color of the Caribbean ocean & the quality is in this beauty the speed all the different patterns & s ... (see full review)titches are incredible. I did have to play around with the bobbin only because it's much different from the other sewing machines I have but really wanted to up grade so I got this one & I am so happy that I chose a name that's been around for years. Thank you HSN for bringing this one on. Thank you very much appreciated customer Dancing fire
Perfect size for a second machine but it never worked...first stich balled up and we could never get the bobbin thread to catch and come up...we tried everything but it is going ba ... (see full review)ck.

I have looked at this machine for a few years off and on. Now that I have it, I am enjoying it these past few days. So far so good! I still have the ability to return it by the ... (see full review)end of January if it doesn't work out like I want.
I have been using this machine for several months now and it is a dream! No problems whatsoever and I see all day for days as I am an avid quilter. As far as HSN they are great as ... (see full review)well! I'm looking forward to a server purchase now!
This is not a tough machine-but it's just a little bit better than other brothers models-it will go through two pieces of vinyl and maybe leather but 4-5 layers of a quilt-no-I am ... (see full review)very disappointed. It also has timing problems with just a few uses and begins to skip stitches
My old sewing machine gave out in the middle of a large project and I needed a new machine in a hurry. I really wanted to upgrade but funds were really low so I went on a search go ... (see full review) find all the features I was looking for and was really downhearted that I would have to settle to an inferior product that I would have to replace in 6 months. A friend asked if I had checked HSN. I was shocked to find that they had the machine I wanted at 1/3rd the price! I love it! Thank you HSN!!!!
I normally find great joy in using all these new machines to complete my sewing and quilting projects. But - I am so sorry to say - I find this one a disappointment. It is my fir ... (see full review)st Janome sewing machine and, possibly, the clacking noises and loud, obnoxious hum when it is in use is normal for this brand. It feels like it is struggling to do even straight stitches. I don't know about this brand. I usually buy Brother, Baby Lock or Singer and the new machines (or at least the ones I have purchased) have all been much quieter. In fact, if one of my other machines sounded like that, I would send it to the shop for repairs. Unfortunately, I am working against deadlines and do not have time to send this machine back. Since it works, I will complete my projects and then give it to my niece. She is a beginner and it, hopefully, will not bother her.
This is a very handy item, i use it to wind all the colors on bobbins that I will need for my project and won't have to stop in the middle of working to wind a bobbin on the sewing ... (see full review) machine. Very handy, time saving device. Would recommend it to anyone.

I haven't written a review yet because I really wanted to do several projects to see how it held up and dealt with different fabrics etc. Since buying this last summer (2015) I ha ... (see full review)ve thrown everything at this machine and its all been good. I have even made blue jeans from heavy, non-stretch denim and never had any problems or skipped stitches, even when hemming the pants legs over the seams. The powerful DC motor is very quiet. I am a fairly new (male) sewer and when I was first starting out the adjustable speed control slider was quite a help. I had been using a vintage Singer mechanical but this is so much better. I now couldn't live without the needle down/up button and the single push button "tie-off" that negates the need to back-stitch to finish the seam. It just makes a tiny knot to tack the seam. I will say you should plan on making a cover for it, as the case is really meant to protect it while traveling and not protect it from dust/lint. There is a cut away on the top
These are 15J bobbins and perfect for my Singer Plus One Sewing Machine. The needles are all the same, but work on medium fabrics. Super price. The carry case holds the bobbins in ... (see full review) place nicely!
To be honest, I haven't used the machine yet because I'm taking an online serger course before I attempt to use it. I ordered more thread and optional accessories also. I had a s ... (see full review)erger years ago which was hard to thread so I sold it. It was not a Janome. Watched the video and looked much easier to use. The machine is well made. Was surprised that it came pre-threaded and the shipping was much faster than expected. I had it in three days.
I purchased this for my seven year old granddaughter who I had taught to sew around ages four and five. She was working on an old machine with issues and never lost her patience. T ... (see full review)ime to reward that sewer! It's a great machine! She had it out of the box and sewing on a quilt top and freaking out because it was a Hello Kitty machine. I have owned many Janomes, they have been quality machines. I'm sure this will suit my young sewer until she reaches her tween years. BTW her mother said it was a great machine and sews on it also.
I bought this machine a couple months before Christmas and waited to give it to my wife for Christmas. The first month was fine with minimal use but now 4 months later and I will n ... (see full review)o longer sew anything. The bobbin will not feed, everytime you get a couple inches into sewing anything it jams up and rips the fabric. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE. Spend the extra money and get something worthwhile. I'm stuck paying the bill on a 200 dollar paper weight. So frustrated...
If you are looking for a heavy duty straight stitch only sewing machine this one is great. Read the instructions on winding the bobbin, threading, and regular oiling and you are ... (see full review)set to sew. I have made aprons, potholders, placemats, a quilt and even repaired my dogs collar with it so far. It goes through many layers with no hesitation. I LOVE this machine I can focus on my project and not have to fiddle with tension issues or skipped stitches. This machine is very heavy so at high speeds or while finishing a quilt it doesn't move around but I would recommend using a sturdy table or desk to put it on. I am very glad that I gave the Singer S16 a try.
The machine was purchased for my daughter and she loves it. It's quiet and smooth. It lives up to the description. No fat quarters were with the shipment though. That's the reason ... (see full review)for the 4 stars.
