4.6 out of 5 stars
Janome 2200XT Sewing Machine
Price:£149.00+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

on 22 February 2016
Great little sewing machine for the money. I bought this because I didn't want to spend too much money but wanted a machine that was going to be reliable and have enough settings to do basic craft and refashioning projects at home. I haven't been let down. I have been using this machine for over a year now and I really like it. It comes with a handy instruction booklet that is easy to understand so is great for a beginner or someone who hasn't sewn in a while like me. It also has a troubleshooting section and tips on things like getting the thread tension right, how to use the different stitches, how to wind and install the bobbin, etc. This is the first electric sewing machine I've had (I used to use the old hand-cranked ones), and I was a little worried about whether I would have enough control over the speed. I needn't have worried. It is easy enough to control as the foot pedal is nicely responsive to pressure. If you just want to do one or two stitches though you can turn the wheel by hand to get precision control. The sewing machine itself is heavy enough to feel good quality, but not too heavy meaning it's easy to take out and put away. It also has a really handy little space hidden inside the casing where you can keep spare feet, bobbins etc. The machine comes with a nice selection of basics like spare bobbins, a selection of feet, some oil, a cleaning brush and a stitch unpicker. This meant I didn't need to bother buying these things separately. The machine has a decent variety of stitches and is very easy to use. My only gripe is that the foot pedal feels like it's made from quite cheap plastic, and doesn't feel that sturdy. However it hasn't broken yet! The cable between the machine and the foot pedal is also not very long, so you can't use the machine on a high table. This is worth bearing in mind perhaps if you are tall. Overall good value for money and a nice quality, easy to use machine.

I can't fault the machine! I've had it for a few months now and have made a pair of cushions and a tablecloth smaller. Never having had a sewing machine before I think it's great for a beginner as it's very simple to use and good quality. It also has a good selection of feet included in the purchase which are very useful. Very happy and look forward to using it on more projects!

I am thrilled with this machine. I have never used a sewing machine before and have always been a little frightened of them. This one is easy to use and there are helpful you tube postings if not certain how to do basic tasks. I am making lots of items and using the machine is the fun part of the project. I highly recommend it for beginners

Good value for money. Has a good selection of all the basic stitches, well made. Like the twin reel holders, allows for twin needle stitching, that I have yet to try out. Good selection of various foot attachments, happy bunny time. Arrived on time, well packaged

Very happy with this purchase, I will get many years of good service from this machine. It has some good features which I did not have on my old machine, and it works very well. What is more it is a compact and attractive machine. I love it.

I bought this on the price range, I wanted something fairly cheap but not rubbish. I'm happy with my choice, the machine seems sturdy, it's worked well, and I'm happy with the value for money. I would only say it might struggle with heavy workloads, but for everyday work, I think it's just fine.

Not actually used it yet, but it looks the part. Looking forward to using it. Not used a sewing machine since my home ec days at highschool, but comes with instructions so looks easy enough to use. Delivery was spot on by seller as was delivered by courier, great communication.

Got this as a birthday present for the wife. She loves it, but then it is her first model. By coincidence it's the same brand at my school and with all my friends so I must have done my research right! The delivery was much quicker than listed, so wasn't too happy with that - I had a hard time hiding it from the wife!

Excellent a newer version of my 30 year old Janome with the same stitches. Only slight issue is the needle threading aid I used on old machine was not standard on the new version. Delivery was excellent as next day as promised.
