I have been bouncing around Western and Central Canada since this machine was launched in September so I have not got around to introducing you to this wonderful new addition to our Janome line-up of machine models which cater to every sewing need.
We already have the SKYLINE S5 AND S3 models available through your local Janome Canada dealers. So, many of you will already be familiar with these models. But now our SKYLINE S7 has joined the party!…….and this one you are going to love even more than you loved the first 2 Skyline models we launched! The S7 has a wonderful set of top class features such as: Automatic presser foot lift & pivot function (previously only found on our top of the line models); 240 built-in stitches; Acufeed Flex feeding system and foot; great white LED lighting; large colour LCD screen; USB port on the side of the machine (more later in this post about this***); and sew much more.
Maybe you don’t feel like trusting me on this one? Check out this completely independent review of the Janome Skyline S7
*** Yes, it is terribly exciting to have a USB port on a sewing machine. We have only had this before on embroidery machines for transferring designs & uploading updates etc. The brilliant news is that the JANOME SKYLINE S7 comes with STITCH COMPOSER software packed in the box! Install this software on your computer and you are set to start creating as many 9mm stitches as you have energy and imagination for. Then simply transfer the new stitch to the machine with a USB stick.
I made this little 9mm stitch which I call a “butterfly flower”. I used a graphic found on the internet as a back drop or “cheat sheet” to help me place my stitch points in the Stitch Composer software. If you can do dot-to-dot, you can do this. It really is very easy once you master the basics. And ALL instructions are built into the software behind the little blue ? in the top right corner of the screen.
