    About a week ago, I noticed there was an update for the S9 on the Janome Global Site. I downloaded it and followed the instructions which said to update your S9 if the version was less than 2.10 which mine was (my notes are cryptic and it was either 1.10 or 2.01). I updated my machine and haven’t used it since. I have the Indigo color on my S9. From your instructions above, I may have damaged my machine. What should I look for? Why wasn’t this noted on the instruction sheet provided with the update? HELP!!

      Hi Sheri,

      The update actually only came to our attention earlier this week which was why we sent information to our Janome dealers, made the PSA available on our website and published it on our social media channels.

      Does it switch on? Does everything look the same as before? Does it sew? Please contact your Janome dealer if you have concerns about the working of your S9.

      Hi Sheri,

      We heard from Janome in Japan this morning that if you update the Indigo blue S9, it should not cause any issues. If your machine is sewing fine and you can see your screen just like you could before, you are good.

    Thank you for the info. I just bought S9 about a month ago, I’m not really sure if it’s indigo or light blue color to be honest. Is the old model lighter blue? is that mean that if indigo color, there are HP compatible and I don’t need a HP plate?

      Yes, Paula. You should be able to tell if the blue colour on your machine is a lighter sort of robin’s egg blue or a much darker indigo blue? The difference is pretty obvious. And our photos in the blog post show this as well.
      The HP foot and plate is an OPTIONAL accessory and does not come with either of these models. It needs to be purchased from your local Janome dealer for both of the S9 models.
      To be clear: The Indigo blue S9 does NOT need to be updated(it is already compatible with optional HP accessories).
      The original, lighter blue S9 DOES need to be updated.

    I have the Skyline 7 (love it)! Is there a way to make the S7 compatible with the HP2 foot and needleplate? I also have the 9400 and I use the HP2 foot and plate all the time when sewing/quilting.

      Hi Deb,
      Unfortunately not – The S7 is not compatible with HP foot and plate. I have no information that there are any plans to update the S7 for HP plate and foot. The HP foot and plate feature is only available on some of our models. Please continue using the HP system on your MC9400 (updated to accommodate HP system).

    Could someone recommend the best heavy duty Jerome machine and perhaps the most economical one.

      Hi Eileen,
      What will you be wanting to sew that requires a heavy duty model? We have several: most of our machines will sew thick fabrics like denim and leather but any of our models that have the letters HD for heavy duty in the model name/ number. The HD9 is fabulous. Bag makers, seamstresses and people wanting a straight stitch only machine that cruises through thick fabrics like vinyl, leather, denim etc and with multiple layers – you should probably look no further than this. However we do have the HD3000 and HD5000 which are also amazing with HD sewing. One of our Janome Canada artisans who is a bag maker used the Janome 625E for a number of years but she now has the HD9 (straight stitch only) and the MC6650( also has many decorative stitches, zig zag, button holes etc).
      You would need to contact one of our authorized Janome dealers for pricing.
