On Board Stitch Selection Guide

The Janome Skyline S7 has an on board stitch selection guide inside the top lid. When it’s closed, the machine has the appearance of a sleek opened, it has the appearance of a sleek 21st Century machine with practically a minimum of visible controls or switches: start/stop; presser foot up/down; thread tie-off/cut; design stop and a three level speed control slider.

The USB port is on the right column with the balance wheel and power switch.  Opening the lid not only reveals the stitch selection guide but also the thread and bobbin winder along with detailed threading and bobbin winding guides.

One thing that I noticed that was of particular interest to me was the placement of the drop feed control lever.  Rather than hiding it, the folks at Janome seem to have heard my complaints and placed the drop feed control lever on the right side of the machine, beneath the balance wheel.

Janome Skyline S7 LED light

Beneath the machine head are bright LED lights and a large workspace that features an oversized needle plate that is easily removed with just one hand.  Two needle plates come with the S7, one for straight stitches and the other for working with zigzag and decorative stitches.

The S7 has a large touchpad which is used to select stitches, lock the machine, access the stitch memory and all of the other on board functions that make working on this machine user friendly.

Working on the Janome Skyline S7

Threading the Janome Skyline S7 and winding the bobbin are completely routine.  If you are accustomed to threading any other modern day sewing machine and winding its bobbin, you will have no difficulty in preparing this machine to get down to doing some serious sewing and/or quilting.

The addition of a safety lock is one of the most functional safety features this machine has to offer.  By locking the Janome Skyline S7, users are able to thread the needle, change the needle plate and perform other non-sewing tasks without having to worry about injury caused by inadvertently touching he start/stop button in the process.

 

On Board Decorative and Utility Stitch Menu

After the Janome is threaded and the bobbin in place, the next step is to select a stitch option from one of the six on board decorative and utility stitch menus.  The needle up/down position and thread tie-off/cut functions can be preprogrammed to increase the efficiency and decrease the time spent performing routine sewing machine tasks.

For this review, I sampled several stitch options and discovered that the quality of the stitches produced by the Janome Skyline S7 is superior to many other sewing and quilting machines in its class.

Janome Skyline S7 High-end Sewing and Quilting Machine Review

Janome Skyline S7 Review by Professional

The Janome Skyline S7 computerized sewing and quilting machine has been highly praised, and is very popular.

In fact, Janome Skyline S7 is one of the TOP sale machine and most of the supplier sold out the stock very fast. If you missed the current stock, have to wait until a new shipment to receive it.

S7 has the more up to date AccuFeed. Finally, the Janome Skyline S7 is colour touch screen stitch selection process with the number of stitch options. There are many number of stitches on Janome Skyline S7 including 11 buttonholes and a total of 236 stitch options.

To sum it all up, the Janome Skyline S7 to be a superior sewing and quilting machine.  The machine is extremely quiet.  Even on the highest mode, the amount of vibration was minimal.

This could have been caused by the fact that it was not set up on a sewing table, but on a folding worktable instead.  My guess is that if this machine were mounted on a more stable surface, especially a table or desk designed to support a sewing machine, there would be no vibration whatsoever.

Janome Skyline S7

Newcomers to sewing can easily learn with this machine, including children. An experienced home sewer or someone who has taken a break from sewing for a few years and returning to the sewing machine would have no problem adjusting to the features found on the Janome Skyline S7 that may not have been available on machines they operated in the past.

The workspace is extra-large, making it possible to quite handle on small to medium size quilting projects with ease.  The free arm and on board accessory storage are merely added advantages.

When compared with the Janome Skyline S5, the S7 is a comparable machine, offering a few additional stitch options and a little more convenience.
