Q & As


Janome JLX2000 Sewing Machine 4.8 5 6 6
Love Love Love it! My husband bought me this machine for Christmas, 6 months in and I still tell him almost every time I use it, that it's 'the second best Christmas present ever' (1st being engagement ring a few years ago) I make most of my daughters clothes now, and am sewing at least 2 projects a week, so it's working hard for me! I find it very easy to use, love having a top loading bobbin case, and how simple everything is to do! Started experimenting with a far larger range of fabrics now (jerseys, silks, canvas, denim) that I have never dared on my old machine. button hole foot, blind hem foot, all luxuries I've not had the pleasure to use before, but make life so easy! (Now if only fabric wasn't quite so pricey....!) 24 June 2013
Easy to use with high quality stitching and multiple features I do not normally leave reviews but this is an exception. I bought the Janome to replace my 34 year old machine which was a 21st birthday present with lots of sentimental value but was quite temperamental. Buttonholes in particular always let my garments down and I seemed to spend lots of time rethreading the machine and unjamming the bobbin. Everything on the Janome is easy to work out without constant reference to the manual as the controls are pretty intuitive. The stitching is perfectly even and I particularly like the fact that you can turn the speed down to go really slowly when you have a difficult bit of sewing. I bought it on a Friday and over a weekend's intensive use I have not had to rethread it once (except to change the colour) nor has anything jammed. I have even managed to monogram the dog's towel! I bought this in person in the Oxford Street branch and would also like to mention the helpful member of staff who took me through the options and demonstrated the machine to me. 24 June 2013
Alphabet styles font size too small. I bought my machine yesterday and managed to test a few styles and mend two garments within half a hour so very easy to thread and use. The instructions are clear but thought the diagrams maybe too small for some people. Slightly disappointed in the font size of the letters (approx 1cm) as I thought you could enlarge these. Not sure what use letters of that size would be. Ideas please? Also, I found winding the bobbin with a horizontal thread spool (as instructed) didn't work as the thread just fell off. Stand your thread vertically and it will be fine. I've never owned a sewing machine before but used my mum's for years and overall, I'm very impressed! 03 July 2012
So easy to use I was a little apprehensive as I had never used a computerised sewing machine before. However the Janome JLX 2000 is really easy to use with comprehensive instructions. The only problem I had was that it appeared that some of the letters in the alphabet didn't come out clearly. My mistake! I went into the Milton Keynes store where the excellent staff were able to demonstrate that I Needed to trim between the letters. A bit fiddly but the results looked great. A great all round machine with lots of accessories. 25 January 2012
Janome JLX2000 Sewing Machine Just had to write to say what a brilliant sewing machine this is. I have recently replaced my old machine of 30 years for this computerized model. The machine was delivered within a few days of ordering and immediately put into good use. The instructions are easy to follow and the machine is simple to use. I can't believe I had been apprehensive about changing my old model. Hopefully this machine will last me another 30 years. A very impressed customer!!!! 23 January 2012
Fantastic upgrade I had my old New Home machine for over 25 years which finally gave up the ghost. I spent some time researching equivalent replacements and was overwhelmed with the choice. I consider myself to be an experienced machinist (clothing, crafts, soft furnishings, etc) but was not too sure that I wanted to take the leap to a computerised machine. However, after reading other reviews, I was taken with this model AND I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED!! Quiet, easy to use, immaculate stitching.....I really wish that I had upgraded before now. Looking forward to my next projects. John Lewis home delivery service was excellent - very happy customer! 03 August 2011
