Love my Janome machine!!!
Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I'm fairly new to the quilting world and decided to take a Quilt As You Go class in which the instructor had a Janome sewing machine. I was so impressed with the features of her machine that I emailed her and asked her opinion of it. She gave a very good review so I decided to do some research and decided that I would purchase the Memory Craft 6500 machine and I'm so glad I did. I love everything about it. It is a very quiet machine, much more quiet than the Brother machine I had purchased as my first one. It has all of the features that I was looking for, e.g. auto threader, auto thread cutter, up down button, a quilting knee lift and a ton of stitches. I've completed several quilting projects and have not had an issues at all with it. It is very easy to use and understanding. I am totally enjoying my new machine and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is new (or experienced) at sewing.
