The MC6500P is loaded with the expert-level features that serious sewing enthusiasts want and need, including an automatic thread cutter -- efficient for regular sewing, it’s also possible to program an automatic thread cut onto the end of stitch combinations. Another valuable time and motion saver is the exclusive Independent Bobbin Winding Motor, which allows you to keep sewing while your bobbin is winding.

AllBrands recommends the workhorse Janome 6500P over new Juki HZL F Series because it is bigger, sturdier, faster, has a longer 9" arm space right of needle, more total stitches 135, Open Toe walking foot attachment, and 25 vs 5 year manufacturer warranty. It has also been proven in the market for over 5 years vs 1 year for the Juki HZL F. More specialty feet are included (13) and more optional feet available from Janome than Juki, including straight stitch needle plate which Juki does not have. Separate bobbin winder motor while sewing on Janome. Visible pressure gauge on front of machine vs just a numerical dial on top. Magnetic hook holds bobbin case down to prevent jamming.

I want to thank you for including my extra foot and bobbins in with my machine so I didn't have to pay extra postage for a separate shipping. Thank you again

Linda, Virginia
I have ordered two sewing machines, a pleater, and a dress form from AllBrands and have been completely satisfied.

I have had this machine for about 6 years or so. It works so well, it's my work horse machine. I love the thread holders, and the independent bobbin motor. The best thing is that I've made Ice skating costumes, with lycra and chiffon; then I've hemmed blue jeans and made doll clothes. Lots of quilt block square piecing and then the Stage Curtain for an Ice Rink. It goes through all of those fabrics. I use only good thread, nothing cheap on it - and I have it cleaned every 12 to 18 months to keep it working good. But if I had only one machine - it would be this one. (I have other Janome's also and recommend the brand any chance I get.).

Jack, Nebraska
I ordered on Thursday and got the machine on Tues! That was GREAT service. Thanks so much! I love the new machine---I think she'll be very happy here!

Neta, Nebraska

Marilyn, Florida
I really like the machine & have been using it daily for my business.

Marilyn W, Greenville FL

I used the machine yesterday to sew something for myself & the features & options on the machine make the job enjoyable & much easier!!!! I am looking forward to using it to make the products that I sell on my website.
