Bought this as my first "good" sewing machine, a much needed upgrade from my Singer Simple. I wanted something computerized, but not too fancy or expensive. Friends told me I needed to get a Janome, but the prices were unrealistic for me, until I found this Jem of a Janome! I just got it in the mail today and I'm in LOVE, so smooth, so lightweight, and so many stitch options. Its so whisper quiet that I may just stay up late into the night working on projects. Thanks SMP.com! A customer that will come back for accessories without ever looking elsewear first.
Great Machine, Great Value

I bought this little 12 lb machine just to carry to quilt classes. Given the price, I didn't expect much, but it is packed with super features like speed control, automatic stop & go operation at the push of a button, and a nice selection of decorative stitches. It's relatively quiet, has smooth, even operation and is highly portable. It would be a great beginner machine for a new sewer. Wouldn't recommend it for heavy duty operation, but it's perfect for quilt piecing. I also bought the smaller extension table which fits perfectly and gives it a great work surface. Not much included in the way of feet, but the feet from my other Janome can be used.
Also appreciated the great customer service when I called the 800 store number to ask questions prior to purchase. They were very friendly and helpful.

I love this machine. it is so quiet I can sew while we watch tv. It is my first computerized sewing machine so I'm learning how to use it. So far I have pieced a quilt without any problems like I had with my old one. The price was the first thing that won me over and then how fast i recieved it was great. I told my sewing class I ordered it online and they were shocked that I didn't go to a retail store, then I told them the price and they were blown away. My next order will be an Embroidery Machine from this site I'm sure.
I love this machine

I love this machine - the STOP/START feature is wonderful!, the threader is a delight, the up and down button is great, it sews like a dream and is half the weight of my 30 year old Sears Kenmore so it's not a hassle now to carry to class. Needless to say computerized sewing is the way to go. Also thank you SewingMachinesPlus for the quick delivery! One last thing - I love not paying tax and shipping/handling - what a Deal!

I knew I wanted a Janome when I started looking. I love to quilt but don't have a lot of time to dedicate to it these days. My last machine was a Brother and although it served me well, the decorative stitches stopped working when I had it cleaned. Since the DC 1050 was so new there were not many reviews out there. I narrowed it down to the DC 1050 and the DC 2011 (both were in the price range I wanted). The DC 2011 has the superior feed system (SFS) but the DC 1050 had the decorative stitches I wanted. From what I've read about the superior feed system is that all Janome machines have a sturdy feed feature even without the SFS. It was stitch number 20 and the start/stop button that won me over to the DC 1050. I got the machine just in time for a quilt retreat and it performed beautifully. It is quiet and sturdy....works like a dream! I am very happy that I chose this machine. It didn't come with a darning foot or a walking foot but the ones from my Brother are compatible. My next purchase will be the extended table!
