Love it! Runs smooth and quiet. Beautiful designs for the endless hoop. I have a commercial embroidery machine, and got this one for overflow and back up. Very impressed with t ... (see full review)he quality of the software and the stitching. Just take your time and read and understand the setup directions, very important. Setup was very easy that way. Cannot wait to try some of the features for the sewing as well. Love the knee lifter too.
I just received this beautiful machine about 2 weeks ago, & it is just what I wanted! It took me a little bit to get used to it, but I found (on an earlier machine) if I just went ... (see full review) through the instruction manual one section at a time & became proficient in that section, it made sewing so much easier. It was missing two feet, but they are on their way after notifying customer service. As both a quilter & regular seamstress, I found this machine had many features that more expensive machines do not. The light weight is also a big plus! However, it is super quiet for such a light machine. If you add up the individual costs of the Value-Added Package, you are really getting a great deal.
Really did like it, but, it doesn't have a light. Poor choice by the company to cut corners and leave out a light. I picked up a different brand with a light and only paid $20 more ... (see full review).
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've had this machine for about 6 months, and am getting more and more frustrated with using it! I've been using Kenmore and Brother sewing machines for many, many years...I sew a ... (see full review) LOT. I've seen the Janome brand on so many sewing videos and thought I'd give it a try because my Brother machines had little operating issues. First of all, I do love the weight and power of this Janome HD 1000, but, that's about all I like. The thread breaks ALL THE TIME! I have tried several different brands of thread, adjusted the settings and no matter what, I'll be sewing along and the thread breaks. So, I need to re-thread the machine. Also, the tension settings don't seem to be consistent. Again, I can be sewing along on several small pieces, going smoothly, and for not reason, the tension goes off. I tried this Janome because of the name and the price was right, but I am going to go back to my Brother machines.
I was initially enamored with this machine because it was easy to use and the instruction manual was understandable and thorough. However, I have had issues. Spandex fabric jammed ... (see full review) under the needle plate and had to be removed with needle-nose pliers. The button hole attachment did not stitch the full circumference on fleece fabric. I had the machine serviced locally to adjust the timing and tension because I didn't want to wait for shipment between Oregon and New Jersey for warranty factory repair. I would recommend the Janome because it performs better than my old machine, but it also cost more than twice as much. Additional research and practice will hopefully improve my sewing experience.
easy to understand & use. Lightweight, perfect stitches. It is my 2nd Janome. First one is a quilting machine. This one is for smaller projects, like making an outfit or mending. I ... (see full review) love it! I say, buy it use it, and you will love it.
I gave my old Janome to my daughter and wish I had never parted with it as my two Singer's are so finicky. This machine is a great little powerhouse, lightweight enough to take to ... (see full review) quilt group and small enough to tuck into my cabinet.LOVE JANOME products! You can't go wrong with the brand.

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...
I bought this Laura Ashley for my backup sewing machine. I have another Brother sewing machine that was getting serviced so I needed a backup so I chose this one. I absolutley lo ... (see full review)ve it. It is very user friendly. It is very light in weight as well not to mention that it purrs like a cat very quiet. I do believe that my other Brother is now going to be the backup.
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.
I love this machine. Upgraded from a 20 year old Viking and couldn't be more pleased. Did not receive the extras package that was supposed to come with the machine but one phone ca ... (see full review)ll to HSN took care of it. HSN is easy to work with and I'm a very happy customer.
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.

I never took the time to allow my grandmother to teach me how to see & now later in life I wish I had bc she is no longer with us to pass on all she knew about becoming an amazing ... (see full review)semstress. I have spent the last few months researching the many options out there & finally took the plunge and ordered this Janome & another machine by a different manufacturer. While there is always a bit of learning with any new endeavor this machine was so unbelievably easy to use & I found my "learning curve" having more to do with the types of projects I wanted to sew & the techniques to bring those projects to life. I have no prior sewing experience & thought this would never be able to learn how to sew as years ago when I tried things out on my mother's machine & was only successful in breaking 3 1/2 packages of needles. This time things were completely different with this Janome DC5100! Right out of the box I sat for a short while with the instruction manual on my lap to go over the various par
This is my second purchase from HSN and just like last time, it was a smooth transaction. My machine arrived quickly. I bought a brother HS-3000 last time and I've had it for about ... (see full review) 3 years and it's still strong. Amd now I decided to purchase this amazing serger. threading it was a breeze. Really easy to thread. And I was using it immediately after reading the instructions and figuring out the tension settings to what I needed. It does vibrate like crazy but not if i step lightly on the pedal.
