Janome 7025 Sewing Machine
Excellent machine, great value for money
I love using this sewing machine. I hadn't undertaken dressmaking since school and was a little frightened of sewing machines. Once started with this machine, there is no stopping me. It has given me confidence with its ease of use and professional finishes. Highly recommended.

As everyone says, this is a very easy machine to use and lovely and quiet compared to my last machine. I didn't give it 5 stars because as a "left hander" the needle lifter is quite awkwardly placed and I did have some initial problems getting the thread of the bobbin through - instructions could have been a little clearer but overall this is a great machine.

Searching for a new sewing machine
I have been using my old New Home machine purchased for me on my 21st (40 years ago!) and my mother in laws Brother which was about 50 years old. Both perfectly capable of stitching but on my retirement I wanted a new machine as I hope to be sewing more regularly. After reading everything available on the Internet I found that making a decision was becoming more and more difficult. I had seen sewing machines on sale at John Lewis and had even bought one of the smaller machines for my son a couple of years ago. I purchased a kettle from John Lewis some years ago ago which had a fault and it was exchanged immediately and then another item which was damaged after having had it 2 years was sent away for repair and delivered to my home. Having considered all of this I decided customer service was the most important issue - not which machine - so we set off to the new John Lewis at York. I understand New Home became Janome so given the long service of my own machine and the help of the assistant who knowledge was very useful I came away with a Janome 7025. It is wonderful, so quiet and easy to use, I love the needle threader! It also has a hard case. My husband who had declared he was still going to use the old machine, used the new one as it was set up - he is a convert. Now what to do with my old machines...........

I haven't really even begun using all the features on this sewing machine but it is amazing! The zip foot just glides through and it is so effortless to sew anything. I love that the base comes off so that you can sew sleeves. I am sure this will last me many years to come.

Having had this machine for a few weeks now, I can honestly say that I chose the right model. The various measurements on the machine are extremely useful when doing seams. Very easy to change the different feet. I have tried all the different stitches and the automatic buttonholer with great success. The sound of the machine is one of quality, no rattling, very smooth and quiet. I would recommend this model to all sewers of any ability.

Good, smooth and powerful- can't switch off hot light?
I have been using my mums old sewing machine for a couple of years but recently wanted to take up sewing a bit more since the summer holidays with a lot more free time on my hands. I used my mums brother machine which she had before I was born, I can't deny that it has definitely worked and lived up to 20 years. But it was time for a new more smoother machine. I bought this yesterday and I really love it, it runs really smooth and not as loud and cluttery as my old machine! It is very simple to operate. One thing that did bug me was that I couldn't find a switch to switch off the light as he became very hot after using it for 10 minutes which made me hot! If anyone knows how to switch it off please let me know! As I will have to take the bulb out otherwise!
I like that it also comes with spare bobbin and 5 extra needles too!

Very useful and handy product
Very pleased with my purchase, i also like the drop in bobbin and the way you can also see when the bobbin is running out of thread. Very quiet machine - have not used all the different features yet but intend to make more use of it in the future. The staff were very helpful and informative - click n collect very good service.

Good all rounder sewing machine
So far I have only used zig zag and straight stitch on light and medium weight fabrics, but the results were excellent. The machine is easy to thread although the needle threader seems rather flimsy and does not automatically line up with the eye of the needle. The instructions say that the presser foot has 3 settings, but I can only get up or down, not the extra height promised. I chose this machine for versatility, with a good range of stitches and of stitch length and width and I think I made the right choice.
