    Ask a question About Janome J3-18 Sewing Machine

    • I am reluctantly looking for a new sewing machine now my old (1974) machine has given up the brave fight. I am looking for a machine that is capable of sewing everything from lace and silk to leather and denim..... Is the Janome J3-18 able to cope with such a varied task??? I make everything from clothing and costumes through to bags and re-upholstering... This is the first machine i have bought and need some advice.. Thanks in advance.

      1 Answer
      • I have the Janome J3-20 which is the same machine with a few extra stitches that I have not used at all, I purchased my machine 2 years ago and love it.

        All my sewing is mostly done for my grandchildren I have done various types of sewing from hemming, cutains and even a wedding dress. the machine has coped with all sorts of fabrics and have never played up.

        Will reccomend the Janome brand to anyone.

    Very impressed with GUR. Ordered online and sewing machine delivered next day - a number of emails to keep me updated on where the order was up to, including an email on the morning of delivery telling me in what hour of the day the delivery would happen - and it did arrive in that hour. Not come across this with any other online retailer! Price seemed average for online retailers - I could not find it cheaper elsewhere.
