Janome Memory Craft 6500P Review

Janome Memory Craft 6500P Review

The Janome Memory Craft 6500P is not your typical home sewing machine. As far as today’s machines goes it can be considered a fully computerized dream model with everything you need for your garments or quilting projects. If you are a serious enthusiast or just like to sew on the weekends, this machine will provide you with the best tools for the job. The only downside is the price, but like most things you can buy today you do get what you pay for.

The 6500P has the speed and power to quickly finish your jobs. At up to 1,000 stitches per minute you will be hard pressed to find a faster machine in this price range. And even though this Janome sews at a high rate of speed, it also produces very precise stitches. This is important as you want the finished product to look like it was professionally sewn.

The Janome Memory Craft 6500P is one of the premier sewing machines in their robust lineup. It’s computerized and setup to handle just about anything you can throw at it. It has a lot of speed without sacrificing the precision that is required for your home sewing needs. One consumer review we found stated “it’s easy to thread and easy to use, and the auto thread cutter works great. Everything you would need is included when you buy the Memory Craft.” The only drawback is the price so you have to consider if you truly need all it has to offer. If your budget has the room then this model is highly recommended.
