I love this quilting machine. My old machine was a Kenmore I had for about 20 years. This machine feels like a cadillac.

After owning a Bernina 817 for ever, I finally decide to buy a new modern machine. After many months of research and test driving many different machines I finally decided on the Janome 6500. The price and all it offered is why I chose it. It has all the features (and more) that I wanted for quilting. Most important was the extra wide throat area. I love the needle threader and don't know how I ever managed without it. The ease of switching from one of the many stitches to another is wonderful! This is a great machine! I highly recommed it for those who want alot of machine but not alot of money!

I have owned my machine for about 5 years. Before I purchased, I went to the fair and tried out a number of other machines. I felt that this was the best machine for the price and have not been disappointed. A sewing machine repairman recently told me he thought Janome was the best brand on the market. I have learned how to clean it regularly from the classes taken when I purchased it and it has given me no problems. This machine is heavy though, so don't expect to use it for taking to classes. I recently purchased the AQS2009 for that purpose.

I purchased this machine to do free-motion quilting. The extra room in the throat space is a must. I found that I had greater control with free-motion than any of my other sewing machines. My stitches looked great. The many stitch functions available make it a great machine for garment sewing as well.

The Janome 6500 is the perfect machine for a quilter, the arm free extension table and the knee lifter are great additions to this easy to use machine. My ten year old nephew had no trouble learning to thread the machine and sew pillowcases on this model.
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
