As a Children's Sewing Instructor I have to say this is a solid Janome sewing machine. I have tested it and it sews very smoothly and I would highly recommend this machine for the younger children to start with. No fancy stitches but has all the stitches needed for basic sewing.
Wonderful Basic Machine

Excellent price, great quality, good features. I recently purchased this machine for my mother. When she was younger, she was an excellent seamstress. As she's gotten older though, she mostly only does mending and minor alterations. She had an electronic Singer machine that stopped working - and since she now lives in a much smaller place she doesn't have a sewing room anymore and needed a light machine that she could use on her desk or dining room table.
I own a Janome and love how it works - so when I found this smaller, lighter machine, I thought my mom should try it. We LOVE it!!! It's really light - easy to move and easy to store. It sews beautifully, and is a good, solid machine. It's basic - three lengths of straight stitching and three (or four, I can't exactly remember) zigzag settings and a couple of other stitches. These are controlled by the large knob on the front of the machine. There is also a tension control, reverse stitch and auto-button holer. When using it, it sews and feels like a full sized machine - I cannot really tell the difference between it and my machine. I would recommend this machine to anyone doing regular garment sewing - it has just enough features to make sewing convenient - if I didn't already have a machine, I'd buy this for myself in a second - and it's so pretty!!!
