I have never had a brand new sewing machine to call my own til this one. Its fabulous and very excited about learning all its features. Its lightweight, very portable, easy to use and very compact. I love it. Price was excellent compared to others I viewed. Delivery was prompt and delivered by a very pleasant chap. Perfectly packaged.
This is a brilliant machine. I bought it to replace my Janome 601 which is still working very well for my daughter but I wanted more decorative stitches. The machine is very light which is good since I am elderly and not strong. Thanks Janome.
I have only recently bought this machine to replace my 40 year old New Home model and what a revelation. It was fantastically easy to set up because of the simple and clear instructions in the user manual, and I am having great fun practicing using all the different attachments and stitches. I am particularly impressed with the over-stitch foot which sews a straight seam and a zig zag at the same time, giving an overlock finish. I didn't buy my machine from Amazon but from Jaycotts in Chester for the fab price of £329.00. Included in the price was a free accessories pack worth £99 which contained several extra sewing feet and a large extension table for attaching to the machine when sewing large items such as curtains.
I'm only just getting to know my new machine but so far it has surpassed all expectations. Solidly built yet light to use, no jerking and wobbling as it sews, more stitches than I've ever seen before but most are useful not just decorative.
Having never owned a sewing machine before I was overwhelmed by the vast array on offer. I spent lot of time reading reviews and eventually settled on the Janome 603. I didn't purchase on Amazon (but bought for same price elsewhere). This machine is amazing. Its so easy to use as a beginner but has enough scope to grow with me as I improve my skills. I also got the quilters pack which provides me with the additional items needed. Its lightweight to carry to classes, even with a hardcover, and I just love it! I would highly recommend this.
