Sewing Machine Shopping Guide for TSC and HSN
Where are you on your sewing machine journey??
Whether you are brand new to the world of sewing or are an expert, finding the right sewing machine can be difficult, time-consuming, and a bit confusing.
Since I know many of you will be watching my TSC and HSN shows specifically for the sewing machines, I thought it would be helpful to share all of my thoughts on the sewing machines that I will be presenting!
MACHINES ON THE SHOPPING CHANNEL (TSC)
Janome MC6650 – This is my favorite sewing-only machine. This machine has an industrial look, that’s because it’s a HEAVY DUTY machine. Great for sewing leather, repairing a boat sail, and doing big free motion quilting. Extended throat so a big queen/king sized quilt can fit inside it comfortably. 170 stitches & 2 alphabets. It’s computerized without the big intimidating screens. Easier stitch selection, as you don’t have to go all through a computer memory bank to find what you need, they’re on the buttons out front.
Janome Continental M7 – This has the largest sewing space in the industry and has a huge 7-inch screen on top. This is Janome’s most advanced, high-end sewing-only machine. Take a photo of the QR code beside most functions on the screen and the instructions on how to use it will pop up on your phone. It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s all metal and will take your sewing to the next level. This machine is for the person who’s been sewing for years and will truly appreciate having all the bells and whistles along with so much extra sewing space.
Janome Air Thread Serger 2000D – This is the serger that threads itself, with a pump of a lever it shoots air through the needle chambers and poofs the thread right through the eyes. It’s amazing. This is Janome’s most advanced serger, but the beginner will love using it as you no longer have to struggle to thread it.
Janome 1000CPX – This is a cover hem machine. This is the final machine a sewist would need to round out their sewing room. (first, a sewing machine/Embroidery, then a serger, lastly a Coverhem makes your workshop complete) This allows you to FINISH seams professionally while maintaining stretch. Think Lululemon and yoga wear type stitches.
Janome S9 – It’s sewing and embroidery with lots of bells and whistles, like Wifi and accufeed. It works wirelessly with all of the free Janome sewing and embroidery Apps.
Janome 9850 – This is a sewing and embroidery machine. Also, this machine is a great value for anyone wanting to have a great sewing and embroidery machine. Allows you to embroider big sizes like many of the more expensive machines, but gets you into the embroidery game.
Janome 5300QDC – This is “regular” sized sewing machine, the experienced sewer will love this for traveling or to bring to the cottage without sacrificing much. it has 300 stitches, or this is a great first computerized machine for someone wanting to get better at sewing who doesn’t want to fight with a mechanical machine, (the ones with the knobs) Because it’s a computerized machine it helps you sew, choosing the right size stitches for you. It also comes with the Quilting Kit, optic magnifiers (which are little cheater glasses the machine wears so you can see the needle better) Love this little machine.
MACHINES ON THE HOME SHOPPING NETWORK (HSN)
Janome 100th Anniversary Sewing Machine 311P– This is an entry-level machine, mechanical easy to use, great to get you in the sewing game with everything you need nothing you don’t need. I love this machine for kids wanting to learn to sew. Plus it’s so cute with the pink accessories.
Janome 100th Anniversary Serger – Great first-time serger and it matches the 100th Anniversary sewing machine!
Janome HD3000– The HD stands for Heavy DUTY so this is a workhorse machine for a great value. Mechanical and strong. Great in a workshop, for repairing heavy-duty things like bbq cover, boat sail, etc.
