Janome S9 Sewing Machine Review

Janome S9 Sewing Machine Review

I am so lucky to be a part of Janome‘s artisan team.   This year, they came out with the latest Skyline model, the S9.  They contacted me and asked me to review it, so of course I said yes and they sent it over.  I knew, based on my experience with both the Skyline S5 and S7 models, that this machine would also be amazing.

When I opened the box, I saw that this machine was a sewing and embroidery machine.  I have never had an embroidery machine and so I was excited (and a little nervous) to try it for the first time.

But before I talk about that, I want to let you know about the machine itself.

It has all of  my favorite features from the S7:

  • large foot pedal
  • automatic threader that always works
  • clothing stitches
  • embroidery stitches
  • automatic tension that works perfectly every time
  • easy bobbin winding
  • stitch plate is SO easy to remove

along with some additional features :

  • large responsive touch screen
  • embroidery functions

So for the first couple of months after I got the machine, I did regular sewing on it.  Just looking at all the embroidery accessories was a bit intimidating. But I absolutely love embroidery and so one day I opened the manual and got to work.  I decided to make an apron for Thanksgiving.  At first I was thinking about fall leaves and colors for the apron, but in the end I created a fun Mexican fiesta style.

Thanks to this amazing box that showed up as a nice surprise on my doorstep, I had everything I needed to create a fun design for my apron.  One of my favorite fabric designers, Anna Maria Horner has teamed up with Janome and created embroidery designs and accessories for and to go with the machine.

This box was so fun to open.  There were three different types of stabilizers, every color of embroidery thread that I needed, as well as a cute little flash drive for the machine.  There were even some fabric cuts.

So I busted out the manual (which is super comprehensive) and all of the needed accessories, and got started.  As I followed step by step, it really wasn’t that difficult.  Now that I know how it all works, it will be quite a quick process next time.  Even though there are iPad apps so you can bring in your own designs, I decided to use the built in designs.  You can open up a grid and take different designs and move them around, flip, resize, duplicate them.  It was so fun and really easy.

I created my design (which I later added to) and then got started.  It was like magic watching the machine create this beautiful artwork.  There were a couple of scary moments when my fabric got caught but I was able to fix it.  I think I used the wrong stabilizer for my particular fabric as there is a bit of puckering and I also think that is why the fabric got caught.  But I really really like how it turned out regardless that it isn’t perfect.

This embroidery just might be my newest hobby!!

All in all, I am pleased to report that this machine is well worth looking into if you are needing a new machine.
