John Lewis JL110 Sewing Machine

Product information

The JL110 is ideal if you use your sewing machine as part of a hobby or regularly mend clothes. It's suitable for beginners or those with a little experience of sewing.

It has 14 stitch options, 4-step automatic buttonhole facility, darning plate - and free arm for sewing cuffs or trouser legs; it also comes with a soft dust cover. Use it for sewing light to medium weight fabrics.

This machine includes both a standard and buttonhole foot, seam ripper, spare bobbins and spare needles. It also has a darning plate which sits over the needle plate which acts like a drop feed and stops the fabric coming into contact with the feed teeth.

Please note: this machine can be used with a twin needle, but this is not supplied with it.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sewing machine I was in a similar situation to other reviewers - 30+ year old terminally ill machine and nowadays only carry out minor sewing tasks. I wanted a reliable, easy to use machine but didn't want to spend a lot of money for occasional use. I purchased this model yesterday and it does all I need and more! The stretch stitch is brilliant and I wish I'd ditched my ancient, temperamental Singer years ago. I would highly recommend this machine. 08 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little sewing machine This is a replacement to a machine I have had for 30 years. Very light, efficient and easy to use. Excellent value. Just what I wanted. 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is just great! Oh I love this machine. I compared machines very carefully, being an experienced sewer, having had an excellent machine in the past.....and..... I couldn't be more pleased. The notes are written clearly. The pictures are almost self explanatory, and the 'complex' things like threading and the bobbin, are so clearly shown and explained - and so simple to follow. Brilliant design. I'm now on window blind number 4 - and enjoying myself using a superb product. 04 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for me As an enthusiastic but sporadic and fairly basic dressmaker, this is just perfect. It's really simple to use and does a wonderful job. I'm really, really happy with it and would recommend it both for efficiency and value for money. 28 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by John Lewis you have done it again! Last time I bought a sewing machine was many years ago and when it finally gave up on me its replacement had to be from a known and trusted supplier. I have not been disappointed! My sewing needs now are limited to repairs and alterations and some soft furnishings and this machine fits the bill superbly, but also has the capacity to do much, much more. Easy to use, good solid weight and excellent value for money, I would certainly recommend it to novices and old hands alike. Thank you, John Lewis, for coming up trumps! 13 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for the novice I am not an expect at sowing, but this machine was very easy to follow the instructions. Mainly wanted a machine to make curtains not for dress making. The machine was nice and quiet and easy to use. My only complaint is that the cover is a bit cheap looking. 13 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good buy! This sewing machine is easy and fun to use. As a beginner sewing bee, I find the product really good and exactly what I need. Very happy! 08 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Fabulous Purchased for my 12yr old Daughters Birthday, looked at the reviews, spoke to Lady at Leicester store in Sewing Department, her recommendation was spot on. Perfect for my Daughter's first sewing machine, though I have to add, I have found it easy and delightful to work with too. Could not recommend enough - and I am quite fussy!! 07 April 2014
