    I'm not an avid sewer, but found this machine super easy to use. The instructions were clear on how to thread the machine and determine what stitch to use. I like the variety of stitches it provides, just enough for all my basic needs. Not to mention the color is great and really makes sewing fun!

    I bought this for my daughter because she wanted to learn how to sew like mommy. Since I have a Janome and it is a great machine, I wanted to stay with Janome. I am glad I did. This is great for a beginner to learn on since it is easy to use. Very easy to thread, easy to wind the bobbin and just start sewing. I had to travel to a friend's and wanted to make her a few simple lightweight curtains and took this with me. This worked so well. Not meant for serious sewists. It won't sew through lots of layers or heavy duty fabric very well but that is not what this is meant for. Light sewing and crafts are perfect for this machine. For people who have never sewn a stitch, you can take this out of the box and pretty much start sewing. Cute little machine that is easy to use and my daughter just loves it!

    This adorable little Janome, "purple thunder" sewing machine made my 14 yr. old granddaughter grin as we opened the box... the color is so darling! She has not been intimidated by it in the least (whereas she is with my machines & the big Janome, I got for her...she has felt very hesitant). She jumped right in & started sewing with it & with the slow, steady speed, she was enchanted with her whole first sewing experience..The other great thing is that as she learns how to thread & wind the bobbins on her little purple machine, she can just naturally move on to the bigger Janome machine when she is ready without having to learn any new things.

    Janome 10-Stitch Purple Thunder Sewing Machine, Thunder Do this sewing machine is good to use by kids age 8 years old?
    by A1L2 11/22/2013
    • I got this machine for an 8 year old. She does fine with it. But it depends on the maturity level of the child. Supervision is always better

    • Yes, I think it would be suitable for an 8-year-old just learning to sew.

    • My guess, without knowing the child's capability; yes with the proper guidance and help by an experienced sewer. Threading the machine is a bit tricky even for me, an experienced sewer.
