Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bswebworks Great heavy duty sewing machine
I wanted a very simple heavy duty machine. that's what I was used to from years back. I have been sewing for almost 55 years. I was especially unhappy with my old machine's horizontal thread feed, which ended jamming all the time, since the thread spool always has some grooves on it that the thread catches on. This machine has vertical thread feed and everything works beautifully! I love it. It also have enough fancy stitches on it in case I need any of them. Truthfully, as an experienced sewer I rarely used those. Most important for us sewers is a heavy duty reliable machine and this is it!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LilDickens Has potential, but too many design flaws
This machine seems like a good workhorse that does its basic job, but I'm disappointed in the housing design which makes it unnecessarily difficult to swap out bobbins due to part of the base being in the way, the placement of the light too far back to illuminate the work in front of the presser foot, and the wobble I can't eliminate because the feet do not adjust and they are uneven! Like many machines, you are forced to reverse stitch with only one hand to try to hold your work steady and the other holding the switch down.

I purchased the Jenome HD1000 to perform basic sewing on fabrics and I am very happy with the results. I experienced a little diffuculty with bobbin jam but soon corrected problem by retracing threading path, the thread broke at needle due to over tension and snap back caused thread to come off the take up lever. I did a small upholstery project on our boat using pvc material it was challenging due to lack of walking foot but did handle the job.

so glad I made the decision to get Janome HD-1000
I have had it for a month and have sewed on it alot because it's such a pleasure to work with. The only thing is, I wish it came with a darning foot. I had to buy one in addition. Other than that, I recommend it highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SACM Excellent buy, great price!
This is probably one of the best items I have bought from Home Depot. I checked the web and found this item to be priced the lowest anywhere. Solidly built machine that just keeps going. I have two fairly new, little used computerized machines both already require repair. So glad I found this one.Thanks!

I was hoping a heavy duty Janome was the answer to my problems with other brands. Nice thing was HD took it back at the local store and issued immediate credit.

So far so good after several uses in first month. Goes through thick fleece easily. Previous machine did not. Looking forward to many years of use.
