Janome 4120QDC-R Sewing/ Quilting Machine
Precise and powerful, the Janome 4120 QDC is a computerized quilting machine which is stylish but packs in enough substance in form of advanced features. An ergonomic design, with exception editing features, twin needle mechanism, selection of over 100 stitches and superior feed system makes this a cutting-edge machine. The sturdy make and ability to withstand rigors of lengthy use add to its value.
Some of the prominent features are:
Intuitive LCD Screen
The superior quality, backlit LCD screen is very easy to read and navigate. You can locate your stitch of choice quickly, look through the options and use the buttons (10) to select the stitch you need. The screen will then display helpful information like recommended foot, thread tension and stitch pattern information to further enhance the experience.
Excellent selection of stitches with superior editing
120 selections of built-in stitches, with seven automatic buttonhole sensors, fonts (with Cyrillic, block and European letters) this machine provides you plenty of options. It doesn’t end there! You can combine up to 50 patterns to program your custom pattern and store it. There’s option to mirror edit, flip the design along X-axis or Y-axis and edit it to suit your needs. And there is the handy stitch chart which can be mounted on to the machine easily for reference or stored in the back when not in use.
Superior Plus Feed with 7-piece feed dog
Armed with a 7-piece feed dog which are positioned parallel to the needle plate, The 4120QDC is able to synchronize the fabric feeding perfectly with the bobbin and needle. The result is taut fabric and high-quality stitches which is a hallmark of Janome machines. With this proprietary technology, you can even go forward or backwards without compromising the stability of skipping any stitches.
Automatic Needle Threading
Simply pull the thread over the threader and watch it automatically fed through the needle eye. The lever to adjust the thread retains its position until the threading is complete. You can thread it just with one hand, and without straining your eyes.
Seven automatic buttonhole with sensor
Seven different styles of buttonholes is another great feature of this machine. What truly makes it special, is that they are equipped with automatic sensors, so you simply have to put the button on the sliding gauge. The foot will automatically determine the size, and customize the buttonhole it makes on the fabric. You can switch between square, keyhole, welted, heirloom or rounded buttonholes and the results are the same, time after time.
Expanded LED lighting
We recognize that your eyes might feel strained through long hours of sewing and quilting. So we designed the wide-angle LED lights for better and brighter illumination of your sewing space. So you can work longer, and work comfortably.

I am the proud user of the 4120QDC for about a year, and while initially I had some doubts (my mother had never used a computer machine before, and it was meant to be her main machine) I can honestly say that all of my worrying was for nothing! The machine has an exceptional buttonholer, and it automates the process, so no extra steps are necessary, for my mother it has been the best machine ever.
I also love it because it manages thicker materials or multiple layers with ease. Yes, for the buttonholes on really thick layers, I sometimes feel like the machine is really pushing hard, but it still manages. But I wouldn’t recommend it for extra thick button holing, if that is what you plan on doing with it for the most part.
I bought a walking foot for it, but it was okay, it wasn’t a fortune, it improves quilting by a lot, so it was alright
The electronic stitch selector works really easily and the selections included are all pretty, but I for one use only about 4 or 5, but there are a lot to choose from.
One thing I love, especially for corner pivoting is the up/down needle option, which makes it easy to work in straight lines or in sharp corners. Also, since it’s an electronic machine, speed adjustments are included, and easy to use; plus, along with the pedal control it’s a real breeze to control the speed of the machine with real accuracy and precision.
If you’re fussy (like I am!) you’re not going to be too enchanted by the beeps the machine does when you press a button at the wrong time on the keypad, or when the presser foot is up, but my mom is not as bothered, plus it alerts you when something is not quite right, so it’s alright.
So, if you’ve never had a computer machine before, this one’s an amazing one to start with; it’s durable, flexible and works fine, it just makes you look forward to yet another sewing project.

I’ve had the machine since the end of 2013, and it’s been a joy to work with it ever since. I’m not a professional sewer, but even so I do take on a few projects, and even if it’s a hobby, I still expect the machine to work as good as possible. Well, let me tell you, it exceeded all my expectation; it’s a machine that works smoothly, and for a hobbyist it’s such a great deal. Yes, there are a few cheaper options out there, but if you want to have a smooth ride with your sewing projects you want a machine like this one, that just doesn’t get in the way. It’s got the basics plus a lot of fancy stitches, and you can select whichever you prefer from the keypad. Plus it does buttonholes, plus embroidery stitches, it’s got the whole thing going for itself. I’m still expecting to find something I don’t like about it, but for now nothing has come up!

I purchased my 4120QDC about a year and a half ago and it’s been my main sewing machine. It is really well built, and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make the jump to a computerized machine. It can sew gorgeous buttonholes, and it’s also an easy process: I just pop in the buttonholer attachment and it just works, no extra tinkering necessary. The machine comes with three styles of buttonholes, and all of them I use, as they look great, for men’s shirts and for women’s alike. One single “bug” I’ve noticed, which isn’t even such a drag; once you depress the foot pedal it still does one more stitch. But I soon learned to workaround that, and I don’t have any major issues. It might be on the pricier side, but then again it saved me a lot of trouble and it works perfectly, so no complaints here!
Love it Review by Felicia

I’ve been using this machine for about two weeks, and for the duration I’ve been enjoying it thoroughly. I’ve been sewing for about 3 years and while I had some other machines, with this one I’ve clicked almost instantaneously. It’s so easy to use, it has a selection of stitching patterns that I really like and the touchpad interface with which it is fitted is really useful and posed no issues for me. Really a steal at the price I got it for, plus it’s got all the features I need.
