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 features a darning plate which sits over the needle plate to stop the fabric coming into contact with the feed teeth and acts like a drop feed.

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

Q & As

John Lewis JL110 Sewing Machine 4.8 5 11 11
Sewing Machine Brought this sewing machine for my daughter's 9th birthday. It was her 1st sewing machine and she absolutely loves it. It is perfect for her and she has picked it up really well. She can change the bobbin and cotton on her own. Very good machine. 30 September 2014
Excellent choice :) My daughter offered to buy me a replacement sewing machine (I've been without one quite a while and really miss it) .. lucky me! I researched carefully, online, reviews for different models and kept coming back to this one as a well priced, well received machine that would be easy to use and capable of tackling homecraft and dressmaking projects. John Lewis customer service is second to none, further inspiring confidence. I am delighted with the machine - it is all that I expected and even more versatile (handling appliqué, sewing on buttons). A joy to thread and use, with a well-written manual. I have signed on to a drop-in sewing class locally, am about to practice the basics on an apron with self-made bias trim and pocket, next step a lined tote bag. Machine is readily transportable and, together we are going places! I strongly recommend this as a great value for money choice. 04 September 2014
Great machine! Bought this for my mum and have used it to make a couple of items. Sews very neatly, is easy to operate and has a decent stitch selection. Have not tried the buttonhole function so can't comment on that but for the price I think it is a great buy! I would recommend this for beginning sewers or anyone who wants a good machine at a reasonable price. 19 August 2014
Awesome I am really happy with this purchase. The sewing machine is easy to use and I have complete lots of sewing projects on it already. Great for beginner to intermediate projects. 03 August 2014
Smashing Birthday Gift! Bought this for our daughter for her Birthday, she has been going to sewing lessons for a few weeks, she loves it and finds it very easy to use, she spends many an evening with the sewing machine on the kitchen table. A very reasonable buy. 08 July 2014
Excellent product A really compact, affordable, easy to use sewing machine. Great hot pink colour! Excellent for occasional use. Click and Collect is perfect. Ordered on Tuesday afternoon, collected on Wednesday afternoon. Thank you John Lewis for an excellent service! 28 May 2014
Amazing for the price. Over the moon with it. I originally ordered the Coral, but returned it as the colour was extremely pink and not the same shade as I saw online. I swapped for the Spearmint, the exact same colour as online, and am much happier. Not deducting any stars for a colour swap. Customer service was excellent! The machine itself is wonderful. So SO easy to use, and a decent weight and size so you don't feel like you're sewing on a toy. Runs smoothly, has a light, and comes with a little baggy of spare goodies inside. Threading instructions on machine and in manual are easy to follow. If you're entry level, picking up sewing after some time, or simply looking for something within budget - go for this! 09 March 2014
Fantastic machine! Really pleased with this machine. Bought the bright pink one great colour! Five stars. 11 February 2014
