Chastidy, I LOVE my little blue Janome. Until recently I sewed on an old, heavy Singer. I actually purchased the Janome because I needed a machine quick (my Singer broke down in the middle of a project and I didn't want to have to "shop" around for a big, expensive machine) and the price was very right. I figured that once I had it I could take my time shopping for my "real" machine. I wanted my new machine to be more portable and easier to store, which this one is. I wanted it to be easy to use, without a bunch of stuff I wouldn't use...check. I haven't found anything that it CAN'T do yet. It powered through putting a lightweight quilt together, so seems to be powerful enough (for me, at least). I haven't quite figured out why I couldn't find any reviews, etc. But seems to be due to the fact that it is a Kenmore with the Janome name. Hmm. I'm beginning to think that I won't need to get another machine, because I really like sewing on this one. Hope this helps.

My first project on my new machine was to put together a quilt top for Lutheran World Relief. A lovely group of LWML ladies at my church puts together many of these quilts each year. I know it's a little loud but will definitely hopefully bring a lot of warmth!
