"After owning a Bernina 817 for ever, I finally decide to buy a new modern machine. After many months of research and test driving many different machines I finally decided on the Janome 6500. The price and all it offered is why I chose it. It has all the features (and more) that I wanted for quilting. Most important was the extra wide throat area. I love the needle threader and don't know how I ever managed without it. The ease of switching from one of the many stitches to another is wonderful! This is a great machine! I highly recommed it for those who want alot of machine but not alot of money!"

Automatic Thread Cutter.
A Quick Key directly above the needle engages the Automatic Thread Cutter which accurately snips your thread. You can also program the machine to clip your thread at the end of a custom stitch sequence.
The knee lift raises the presser foot while leaving the needle in place so you can keep your hands on your work. It's a favorite feature of quilters. It's also very useful for garment and home decor projects.
If you accidentally bump the lift while you’re sewing, the MC6500P has a built-in safety feature that stops the machine and gives you a warning. This ensures you don’t break a needle or ruin your project.
9 inches x 5 inches of Bed Space.
9 inches x 5 inches (225mm x 120mm) is the largest arm and bed space of any household sewing machine. It comes standard with a generous extension table for even more room.
Easy Access Feed Dog Control.
For quilting or other free-motion sewing, you can quickly drop the feed dogs. The lever is easy to reach on the front of the machine.
Stitches can be elongated, flipped and combined with other stitches. Save the custom stitches into the Memory Recall Bank. Adjust stitch width from 0 to 7mm. Adjust length from 0 to 5mm.
Easy Needle Threader.
A great time saving feature to get you sewing faster. Just push down the lever, loop the thread through, release, and your ready to sew.
More Needle Positions.
Janome is known for precision stitch quality, but the MC6500P takes it to the next level. With 71 total needle drop positions (including 15 left to right needle positions), your decorative stitches will have the detail and quality you expect and deserve.
Automatic needle threader, Needle Up/Down, Lock Stitch and Reverse Keys are all within easy reach. They are placed right above the sewing area.
Plus, the Automatic Thread Cutter and Needle Up/Down keys have indicator lights. You never have to guess if they’re turned on.
Independent Bobbin Winder.
When you need to wind another bobbin, you don't have to stop and unthread the machine. The Memory Craft 6500P has an Independent Bobbin Winding Motor. You can wind your bobbin while you keep sewing.
Quick Flip Stitch Chart.
All 135 stitches are easy to find on a clever flip chart that folds up from the back of the machine.
Pressure regulator with visible pressure gauge.
Sometimes bulky layers of fabric need more pressure from the foot. Sometimes sheer fabrics need less pressure. The MC6500P lets you control how firmly the foot is pressing on your fabric. The Visible Pressure Gauge shows yhou the exact position of your ideal setting so you can get the same results every time.
Ergonomic and Intuitive Design.
Easy-access, raised keys and a bright, clear LCD screen make it easy to set all the machine’s operations. Press a key and the screen displays everything you need to know about the stitch or function. Giant stitch diagrams pop up to confirm your stitch selection. For more information or options, simply press the Help key.
