spent a lot of time looking for a good basic sewing machine. coming up with janome jem gold 660 was the best answer for a starter sewing machine.
the best idea janome came up with was the self threader, it really makes a big difference when you are making quilts. so you are not threading a needle the old way. the accessories are great too have bought what I neede with a walker foot/ 1/4 foot for quilting as well. the jem gold has excellent reviews with no glitches like other machine, well made, roundlight easy to move around! already made 1 quilt and started on another which is much bigger.

I bought this machine when it first came out. (1998?) It has been a work horse! I have used it continuously for piecing quilts and making clothes. It has perfect stitches every time and is easy to learn on. It has never needed servicing and I have just cleaned it myself. It is still going strong. It is small and lightweight but does basic sewing at a great price. It is as good as it gets in this price range. I have nothing negative to say about it. I would highly recommend it for an inexpensive, basic machine!

After becoming acquainted with the Jem Gold 660 in Africa, I bought one last year for my personal use. This year I bought 2 more for my children and grandchildren. This is a great little machine that sews sweetly and is light-weight. It works so smoothly that I hardly ever get out my old machine. I haven't found anything that I want to do that it can't handle. Thanks!
Better than expected

My experience buying from Sewing Machines Plus was excellent. The machine arrived as expected, had all the parts and the booklet and is working wonderfully. Thank you Sewing Machines Plus. I am using this machine presently for sewing quilt pieces and have no issues.

I had my Jem Gold for 9yrs,and I took to class
with me everyd time I went.
It was a wonderful machine I learned free
motion on it and made 9 quilts pretty good for a beginner.
I really miss it and I'm busy looking for a new lite-weight sewing Machine

I have had mine for severa years. It is my go to machne for classes because of its light weight. It also has a great stitch. The Gold can do just about everything you want it to. I have had no troubes with mine. Treat your machines right and they will last a very long time.
