Janome 6700 Professional Sewing Machine

Janome 6700 Sewing Machine - Angled ViewLast month, on the 9th of August, I traveled out to Las Vegas, Nevada for Janome’s City Limits Tour. At this event I was able to preview their new 6700P model, and learn what makes it special. It’s quite impressive, and I would have liked to share the details with you sooner, but dealers were advised to wait until the official launch date (today) to give out info or post pictures of this machine online.

For owners of Janome’s 6500 and 6600 sewing machines that have loved their machines and didn’t think they’d ever want to purchase another one, the 6700 will make you want to upgrade.

2 New Janome Sewing Machines – M7100 & M7050

Janome M7100 Sewing MachineNearly two months ago I attended a sewing machine convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, where Janome was introducing new model sewing machines and other sewing/embroidery related products. My interest fell to two of the newest additions, the M7100 and the M7050. Their big sister, the M7200 boasts  200 stitches plus an alphabet, while the M7100 is equipped with 100, and the M7050 is equipped with 50 stitches. Even though they have fewer stitches than the M7200, both models are also less expensive for our customers, and what they have to offer is very exciting.

Straight Stitch Plates for Janome Sewing Machine Models NQM2016 and DC2015 are Finally Available!

Janome DC2015 Straight Stitch PlateIt’s been way too long … but Janome finally has straight stitch plates available for their DC2015 and NQM2016 sewing machines!

Many months ago we contacted Janome because we had customers that needed these straight stitch plates, and we were told that they had a part number, but that the number wasn’t in the ordering system yet. That being the case, we couldn’t even pre-order the plates. Last week we placed another Janome parts order, and when we checked to see if the plates were finally in the system, they were!

M7200 Janome Sewing MachineLast weekend, I attended a trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, where I was able to see the new Janome M7200 sewing machine, up close and personal.  This dandy regular size and regular weight machine sports purple and lavender graphics, a top loading full rotary hook bobbin, 200 built-in stitches, including alphabet, manual thread tension control, built-in one-hand needle threader, an automatic thread cutter, and more. The Janome M7200 even has memory, making it possible to combine decorative stitches with lettering.  We should have the M7200 in the store sometime next week.

Janome’s Memory Craft 9400 QCP Extension Table is AWESOME!

Janome 9400 Slide TableIf you take sewing or quilting classes, do you sometimes want to bring your extension table, but you don’t because you would have to remove the legs and it’s too much trouble? Or, do you leave the legs attached and they keep catching on things or you break one off? Ultimately, you leave that wonderful extension table at home and struggle with your large or bulky project grumbling all the while.

The New Janome MC 9400 Has A Third Needle Plate

Janome MC 9400 Quarter Inch Needle PlateLast Monday I attended a Janome dealer meeting in Long Beach, and we were introduced to Janome’s new Memory Craft 9400 QCP sewing machine. Since I have attended so many dealer meetings and training conferences over the years, I’m not always thrilled with the new features and accessories that a sewing machine manufacturer thinks will “make my life easier.” Let’s face it, I sew or quilt daily, so I know when something will save me time, make something easier to do, or when something will give me new power to rule the universe.

New Janome MC9400 Sewing Machine Coming in May

Janome Memory Craft 9400 QCP Sewing MachineThe Janome Memory Craft 9400 is coming to Temecula Valley Sewing Center in May 2016. This fabulous new top-of-the-line sewing machine has an amazing arm length, sure to be a hit with quilters.

I don’t think we could take away from the excitement if we tried. Honestly, how many sewing machines do you know that boast an arm length that allows 11 full inches to the right of the needle? The great features don’t stop there; Janome’s Full Intensity Lighting System, a built in walking foot (AccuFeed Flex), 3 needle plates, and more!

Our Custom Janome 712T Table

Janome 712T Treadle Sewing Machine TablePerhaps you didn’t know that Janome makes a treadle sewing machine. Yes, it’s 2015, and you probably have a sewing machine with a motor, light, and maybe even a computer in it. Is there a place for treadle sewing machines in this modern age? There are actually a few reasons why people are buying treadles, so you’ll have to decide for yourself if one is worth having. We think they are really nice. If you’re a collector of sewing machines, we think you need at least one treadle.
