    Purchasing products online can sometimes be hit or miss. This is a definite HIT! Love this sewing machine. Good quality, It works so well and is easy to operate. Be mindful however, it DOES not work well at all with with generic bobbins or needles. You need to purchase Janome products to use with this machine. So if you buy the machine, buy extra notions to go along with it.

    I cannot get over how amazing this machine is, it's like a dream! I had an old brother that was LOUD and vibrated like crazy no matter what I did! This Janome is quiet for a sewing machine and doesn't vibrate too bad either. THE biggest thing for me was the zigzag stitch, my old machine never would do the zigzag for a full row and it was so frustrating. But the zigzag on this is perfect! I have sewn a ton of things, gone through well over a 1,000 yards of thread and only had the thread break maybe a few times and that was more my fault. I wish I had this machine always, my life is so much simpler and projects that are "quick" ones actually are now! In the past with my old machine I'd say, I'm going to sew this real quick...then like 2 hours later about want to give up. But with my new Janome quick is quick and I am making wonderful things so easily now, seriously in love with this machine, I even hugged it!

    So if you have had or have the more older style mechanical sewing machines this will be a wonderful upgrade. I know there are high end fancy digital and lots of bells and whistle like machines but I wanted something more old school that just is a good working machine and user friendly and with this I found exactly that and in a price I could afford, it rocks!

    Got this for my wife for Christmas. She likes it very much. Her previous machine was a hopelessly complicated Singer which she finally gave away. She had this new Janome 2212 up and running in a very short time and is now actually looking for items to sew on it! So far, this machine seems perfect to accomplish our basic sewing requirements, and probably sewing tasks much more than basic.

    I bought this last year. Wanted to try it out as i was only a newbie. This is an amazing sewing machine, never has given me trouble, stitches are always neat. Although sometimes i wish it had the width stitch option and some more stitches for mimic overlock.I think i'm going to upgrade soon.

    This sewing machine is so easy to use and I can carry it with one arm. I only do light sewing and it has been my favorite so far. I sold two other machines in a yard sale because they were to complicated. This little machine makes me want more projects. I no longer dread the bobbin or threading the machine. If ever I need another sewing machine, I will definitely buy Janome.

    I like it a lot. First sewing machine. I use it to hem clothes, fix sheets and blankets, jacket pockets or any fabric our little aussie puppy tears up (like her puppy bed). I am going to start making a quilt with it. Everything has worked well, had 0 problems with it.

    Perfect for me, a beginner! Easy to use in every way. I've been a needleworker for 60 of my 70 years on earth: needlepoint, cross stitch, knitting, smocking, embroidery. But I could never do anything on a machine that didn't end up lopsided. I'm so excited about this one that I've signed up to take sewing lessons at my local quilt shop. I've already made 2 small projects just relying on the ease of the machine, I'm really thrilled there's hope for me yet!

    I have literally never sewed anything before in my life (for the record, I'm 32). I recently decided I'd like to be able to make some things, and after some consideration, decided to get my own sewing machine. After reading ridiculous numbers of reviews on Amazon and elsewhere, and more YouTube videos than I can count (there's one by the Crafty Gemini detailing how to use this particular machine, which is super helpful and swung me into clicking the "buy it now" button), I finally decided on this one. And now I'm obsessed. There are a ton of useful "how to"s online, to make just about anything. The day it arrived, I made a pincushion. The next day, I made a tablecloth (my hem was TERRIBLE, but who's going to look at the hem? It looks great on my table). The next day, I made a purse (word to the wise: your hemming is SLIGHTLY more important on a purse than a tablecloth, because people will see if your hem is super crooked on a purse). I'm now a frequent flier at my local JoAnn Fabric and have basically taken over my kitchen with projects and fabric swatches. I've read the reviews that say this is a beginner machine, and doesn't do a lot of more advanced things, but as it stands right now I don't even know what else I would need. I also decided to go with this machine because it's mechanical. I thought at first that the ease of a computer machine would be better, but I was worried that there would be more parts to break with a computerized machine. I love having the light to illuminate my work (that might be common on sewing machines, I don't know. It's nice to have), and this thing has sewn through everything I've thrown at it like a pro. Vinyl, imitation suede, brocade fabric - I feel like I can do anything with this machine. I highly recommend it!

  19. Great machine! Review by R. Smith

    The Janome 2212 is a great sewing machine, especially for beginners and those who are looking for a less complicated machine. When we set out to find a sewing machine, we wanted to find one that met four criteria:
    A.) It had to be affordable. We did not have several hundred dollars to invest in a sewing machine.
    B.) We wanted it to be mechanical. Computerized machines are nice, but they tend to break down more often and are more complicated to use. A good mechanical machine with a metal body will last a lifetime; once the computer breaks down in a computerized machine, it's done for. (Some of them can be fixed, but it's cheaper to buy a new machine.)
    C.) The machine had to be dependable.
    D.) We wanted a machine that could be used for quilting and other projects that require several layers. Too many of the less-expensive machines are so cheaply made or so lightweight that they can't be used for any serious work.

    The 2212 fit all of these criteria. We decided on it after an extensive search. We read all of the reviews for this and several other machines and then went to a local sewing center to try it out. We've had the machine for two weeks now and have used all of the different features. It works great. We've also made several big projects using this machine, so we know it works well. We finished an art bag for a cousin's birthday last night. Some of the stitches had to go through 10 layers, most of them heavyweight, and the machine didn't so much as hiccup.

  20. WOW what a great machine! Can't go wrong with Janome! Review by Anonymous

    Got this for a 10-year-old niece to start her sewing lessons on. I have two full size Janomes and am VERY IMPRESSED with this little machine! I know from experience Janomes are very dependable, sturdy workhorses that keep going for years, and mine have never needed maintenance besides cleaning dust out of the bobbin case. It stitches out and sounds exactly like my big machines - very smooth and precise and all the stitches are perfect. There's definitely no reduction in quality with the reduction in size/weight. Weighs a little less than 13#, so it would be a perfect weight to carry to classes vs 20#. But it's almost the same measurements as the full size so you have almost the full size workspace - both are 15" long, the 2212 is 1" shorter overall at 11" tall vs 12", and 6" deep front to back vs 7" . The harp or throat area (opening) is the same 6.5" from the needle to the motor casing, and only 1/2" shorter at 4.5" vs 5" high. So if you are able to quilt on a standard machine, close to the same size roll of fabric/batting would go through this too. Baby quilts or throws - no problem. I have made full size quilts on my standard size Janome. Doesn't have a lot besides straight stitch and zigzag, but would be perfect for piecing and basic garment/craft construction. Stitch length is adjustable from 0 to 4 on straight stitch, zigzag, tricot/darning stitch, knit stitch, blind hem stitch, and decorative shell stitch. Width is adjustable too on zigzag, it's not pre-set like on Hello Kitty, but the other non-stretch stitches are preset width. All the stretch stitches are pre-set length and width and can't be adjusted - straight stretch, rickrack, smocking, decorative, and blanket stitch.

    It does have drop feed-dog for free motion stitching. For bobbin winding you pull out the handwheel, very easy to do. The bobbin case is in front instead of top-loading if that is an issue with you, it doesn't appear to have the thread tangling problems that frontloading Singers do. It does not have an automatic needle threader, needle up/down button, or adjustable presser foot pressure. If these options are important you need to upgrade to a more expensive model. For a basic sew & go or beginner machine at a great price, I don't think the 2212 can be beat.

    FEET: It requires a phillips screwdriver to remove the snap-on shank, which is not included. If you buy extra feet for it, make sure you get feet made for the 5mm front-load bobbin style, as the needle is in a different spot and can't accept generic or other Janome feet made for 7mm top-loading, unless there is a wide opening for the needle. The right toe of a 7mm will barely touch the feed dog as it's too wide. Generic straight-stitch feet won't work, the needle will hit metal. You canNOT use a standard Janome or generic spring-load darning/FMQ foot because the needle shaft of this machine is shorter than normal, and it cannot raise the hopping foot high enough to move the fabric. Look for Janome brand darning foot for front-load machines.

    UPDATE 2-14-12: Just finished a 50x60 rag quilt made from two layers quilting cotton with flannel for the batting. The 2212 didn't balk or complain at sewing 6 layers together. Of course it's louder when sewing through thick layers but all other machines are too. I was able to join the blocks without a walking foot, but joining long strips of blocks required a walking foot because it would eventually start pushing the top layer forward. Since I clip the seam allowances at the ends of the blocks before joining strips, I don't have to sew 12 layers like some people make rag quilts, I doubt the 2212 could do 12. If you need a walking foot, be sure to get the Janome front-loading 5mm foot, the generic and other brands of 7mm will work but the needle ends up on the left and it's hard to tell where your seam is going to end up.

    The only 'con' is it being front-loading bobbin as a beginner machine for a young girl, as my niece did have thread jams until she got used to turning the wheel to get the needle in the right spot. Once she got used to it, no more jams. The wheel must be hand turned to get the needle positioned correctly before starting a new seam, or will jam every time you start stitching, as will all other brands of front-loaders. It's just the 'nature of the beast' and I'm not lowering my 5 star rating for it. As I've sewn many years, it didn't take long for me to automatically turn the handwheel and get the needle in position for the next seam before ever lifting the presser foot to remove the fabric and pull out the thread tails. No more jams. Just be aware, a beginner will have a harder time than with a top-loader. The Janome quality is there and I expect it to last for years trouble-free :o))
