Janome is the best sewing machine I've ever owned. I 'll never go back to the cheap plastic machines. I got a Heart Janome 2 years ago. I started sewing like crazy with great anticipation of the arrival of our new great grand-daughter. I made the whole layette set including quilts, hooded towels, bibs, diaper hanger, hamper hanger, outfits, sheets & etc. That machine held up to it all and is still doing great 2 years later ( unlike the other 3 less quality machines) I own. Well,. needless to say I use my Heart machine now cause it does such an awesome job. We just got the news that we are getting a new great grand-son this time so I am starting all over and really am proud to have my Janome Heart to do it again. Thanks to Sewing Machine Warehouse I look forward to all the tasks I have ahead and another great experience.
