Janome 7360 Review

Doyousew Recommendation Level: HIGH

7360 is one of the most innovative equipment in the Magnolia series (likewise the most expensive). Magnolia 7360 has 60 built-in stitches on-board, that includes 7 one-step buttonholes also. Generally you anticipate equipment of this rate to include a top drop-in bobbin with clear cover, as well as it doesn’t let down. The automatic thread stress control ensures regular stitch quality across various kinds of materials. The automatic needle threader makes threading the needle uncomplicated (this is not a massive shock, you obtain this also on less costly machines). It additionally has a snap-on type presser foot, which suggests you don’t require to run for the screwdriver every time you require to change the feet.

Memorized needle up/down is most likely the most important feature on Janome 7360. This is a should have a function for quilters. 7360 is a device targeted at quilters, so you expect this anyhow. Remembered needle up/down comes in handy while pivoting around edges. The backlit LED screen is quite standard (and tiny). It is not an innovative display that you hop on a Sibling SE400 or other Brother equipments. Easy navigating keys are attended to quick stitch option. The switches to adjust stitch width as well as size are provided right beside the display. The maximum stitch width is 7mm and also sew length is 5mm.

A lot of the expensive Janome makers currently feature 7 item feed pets which guarantee regular stitch quality and 7360 is no exemption. Stitching start/stop switch as well as rate control slider is the highlight that distinguishes an electronic machine from a mechanical one. With the rate control slider, you remain in complete control of the sewing rate. You can go very fast or very slow-moving according to your requirements. Slow speeds work the best for beginners (although newbies may not need an embroidery equipment as expensive as this. Janome 7330 might just be enough for them).

Janome 7360 is free arm exchangeable and there is an option to drop the feed pet dogs, just in case you intend to do some free-motion quilting. Different buttons are offered to secure stitch and also reverse sewing. Auto-declutch bobbin winder protects against overfilling. The added clearance given by the extra-high presser foot lifter is really useful while functioning with numerous layers of fabrics. Retracting bring handle includes to the portability.

The device considers 16.45 pounds, which is a clear indication that many components are made of steel, which is excellent for sturdiness. From my experience of evaluating sewing machines, I have seen that Janome machines are normally better built for toughness. They make use of steel wherever feasible, as opposed to using inexpensive plastic to reduce costs. Which is why Janome equipments are always costly especially when you compare the attributes.

As I have actually claimed earlier, Janome 7360 is targeted at quilters, so Janome has actually included a bonus offer device bundle worth virtually (according to Janome, not me) with this machine. The plan consists of Walking Foot as well as a 1/4 ″ foot. I assume the accessory package well worth is just an advertising and marketing gimmick, not a large deal.

Usability

janome 7360 2 Janome 7360 is a workhorse. The machine has an amazing capacity to execute admirably on different kinds of fabrics. It works well on lightweight fabrics and also functions even better on multiple layers of denim (6 plus layers and no worry in all). You can really feel the top quality from the first stitch itself. It has best stitch top quality amongst the sewing machines I have evaluated in the recent past. You have a whole lot of stitches to select from as well. I actually like the developed top quality of this maker. If taken care of well, it will serve you long for sure.

Limitations

You can’t claim that the motor is a beast. On paper, Janome 7360 ′ s electric motor can supply 820 stitches/minute. In this class, you normally expect at the very least 850 spm. But the intriguing point is that, it never felt under powered, in fact it functioned perfectly.

Being projected as a maker for quilters, Janome missed out on the method as they really did not include an extension table.

Pros

  • Good range of stitches
  • Memorized needle up/down
  • Awesome stitch quality
  • Great for thick textiles
  • Easy to use

Disadvantages

  • Plain LED display
  • No extension table

Is It Worth Buying?

At this moment, I truly can not find any kind of factor to not to purchase Janome 7360 in 2018. It sews like a dream, at the very least that is what you anticipate from a stitching equipment. It might not have 200 integrated stitches or something, but the high quality is for everybody to see. Some may consider it as pricey, yet I believe it is actually worth the money.
