What customers say about "Key Specs"
Janome Memory Craft 6300P Sewing Machine
  • The adjustable speed allows for very fast straight stitching, and I'm able to slow it down when I'm quilting. The machine is very sturdy, not lightweight and plastic.
  • This machine is a tremendous value. I was looking for something that would provide key features without a lot of bells and whistles I would not ever use and the Janome Memory Craft 6300 perfectly fit my needs.
  • Love this machine, doing everything I want. I do wish it has more decorative stitches, but so far it has been a great machine.
  • Love this machine! It's everything I need and exceeded my expectations. A real work horse for quilting.
  • Really nice machine. The only complaint I have is that the reverse is a locking stitch -- I can't just backstitch without the locking part.
Janome Memory Craft 6500P Sewing Machine
  • THe 6500 is the center of my sewing room. I love everything about it. I have not used all the stitches but the one have used are beautiful. It is not loud and runs very smooth.
  • The results are precise and rewarding. there are many interesting and creative stitches in the machine and I especially love the automatic thread cutter and foot presser lift and needle threader.
  • This sewing machine is fun. I'm a quilter and it's very useful. I've also used the monogram feature to make some name tags. Use it almost every day.
  • This is indeed a workhorse of a machine with one big weakness, the bobbin case. It shifts around and then causes timing problems. Now the machine makes a horrible noise, though it sews correctly, because the bobbin case is rubbing the housing area.
  • Bought it a year ago Christmas and paid $1300. for it the machine is just awful. I started to sew and the bobbin goes nuts had it repaired when I sat down at the machine to sew a seam the bobbin went nuts again. I've have read reviews and others are complaining of the same thing.

What customers say about "Features"
Janome Memory Craft 6300P Sewing Machine
  • I've had my machine for a couple of months now. I love most everything about it. The large throat size makes it much easier to free motion quilt.
  • It's easy to use, has a memory if you need it, and comes with great accessories! It has a great motor in it.
  • The wider throat area makes free motion quilting much easier. I love the auto cut, auto threader and knee lift features. And, it sews very well.
  • Love this machine and all the accessories that came with it are spot on useful.
  • My only disappointment is that I had to purchase a separate bobbin case specifically for free motion quilting. The one that came with it just tangled the bobbin thread something awful when quilting! But with the new case, the whole thing is wonderful!
  • The machine seems to be in good working order. The only problem is so far that the screws for the extension table don't fit.
Janome Memory Craft 6500P Sewing Machine
  • I was looking for a machine with a bigger opening, making it easier to quilt a larger quilt, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. This machine has so many great features like the scissors,lots of feet and the extension table, that I decided to take a chance
  • I researched for quite a while before purchasing this. I free-motion quilt and I was tired of dealing with machines where the tension was never consistent. This sewing machine has solved my problem! I LOVE it.
  • I love the thread cutter, the speed adjustment and the depth of the throat for quilting work, and have been thoroughly enjoying my machine. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a great machine for quilting.
  • Easy to thread, easy to use, the knee lifter for the presser foot and the auto thread cut are great. Very easy to change the feet, even while you are 'mid stitch'. Everything you would ever need is included.
  • Only downsides are no sleeve opening and the needle threader is plastic. But other than that it is perfect.
  • The only complaint I would have is the absence of a hard carrying case, ()although it does come with a soft cover.
