It threads easily and has an easy to follow guide book. It comes with a soft cover which is enough for home storage. It feels steady even when you get up to a faster speed.
A couple of years ago I bought the same machine for my daughter, and it has been without problems. This one I bought for my daughter in law because I know from experience this model is dependable.
Being a mechanical machine, it is a good idea to practise on spare material forward and reverse to get rid of any surplus oil it has around the bobbin area, before starting a project!"

Did You Know.....
Front Loading Machines are BEST suited to specialised thread work such as Shirring?!
Because having an old-fashion, mechanical bobbin case means you have FULL Control of bobbin tension.
This is really useful when you use non-standard bobbin threads like shirring elastic or mono-filament. You can manually alter and tweak the bobbin thread tension until you have a perfect result for your project.
For those who need to do this regularly, it is best to purchase extra metal bobbin cases, get the tension just right for the type of bobbin thread you use, and then leave the bobbin case as-is for the right setting and reserve it to use for the type of thread only.
For example, you might have one adjusted for shirring elastic, one for mono-fillament (most commonly used for machine applique), and one for regular sewing in normal cotton or polyester thread.
This way, you don't have to muck around with bobbin tension each time you change the type of thread in the bobbin!
- A Robust, Reliable Mechnical model to suit your needs - whether you have a passion for sewing or just want to get things fixed around the house.
- Easy stitch selection with easy-to-use dials at the touch of your finger tips.

- Fast & Simple to Thread-up - Never cringe again when you need to use different colour threads!
- Front-Load Bobbin System - an oldie but a goldie. You can tweak the bobbin thread tesion to suit the kind of work you have on hand!

Not All Sewing Machines Are Made Equal...
Take a peek: an X-Ray view if you will. The photos here show a Janome JR1012 with a see-through exterior.
You can easily see - inside every Janome there is REAL metal (aluminium die-cast to be exact) that can be found in even the most inexpensive, entry level Janome.
The die-cast aluminium frame in a Janome provides the strength and stability required for the precise action of the sewing machine needle and mechanism.
The exterior is just that - a shell - and not part of the structure of the machine.
Unfortunately there are other brands of sewing machine on the market in Australia right now that have no internal frame (let along metal). It means the components are merely attached to the outer plastic shell of the machine. There is simply not enough rigidity for high speed movements!
With Janome, there is always inner structrual support which means your sewing machine performs better, and it lasts longer. Buy Well, Buy Once.
NOTE: JR1012 is shown here but other Janome models also have the same metal inner frame. Image Courtesy of Janome.
Still not sure?
Here's what one (of many) happy customers had to say after purchasing their Janome JR1012:
"Got this for a 10-year-old niece to start her sewing lessons on. I have two other Janomes and am VERY IMPRESSED with this little machine!
I know from experience Janomes are very reliable, sturdy workhorses that keep going for years, and mine have never needed repair aisde from regular maintenance such as cleaning dust out of the bobbin case.
It runs and sounds exactly like my big machines - very smooth and precise and all the stitches are perfect. There's definitely no reduction in quality with the reduction in size/weight and price. This machine weighs a bit less than 6 kg, so it would be perfect to carry to classes.
FEATURES: It doesn't have drop feed-dog but comes with a cover plate for free motion stitching. For bobbin winding you pull out the handwheel, very easy to do. The bobbin case is in front instead of top-loading if that is an issue with you, it doesn't appear to have the thread tangling problems that frontloading Singers do.
It does not have an automatic needle threader, needle up/down button, or adjustable presser foot pressure. If these options are important you need to upgrade to a more expensive model. For a basic sew & go or beginner machine at a great price, I don't think you will find better value than the JR1012.
FEET: It requires a phillips screwdriver to remove the snap-on shank, which is not included. If you buy extra feet for it, make sure you get feet made for the 5mm front-load bobbin style, as the needle is in a different spot and the alignment isn't the same as feet made for 7mm top-loading, unless there is a wide opening for the needle.
TIP: Always turn the handwheel and get the needle in position for the next seam before ever lifting the presser foot to remove the fabric and pull out the thread tails. My niece did have thread jams until she got used to turning the wheel to get the needle in the right spot. Once she got used to it, no more jams. It's just the 'nature of the beast'.
As I've sewn many years, I can definitely see the Janome quality there and I expect it to last for years trouble-free."

I always make sure that my customers keep these foam cut-outs along with the box it came in - just in case you need to move house or put your machine into storage.
Also, in the highly unlikely event where you may need to send the machine back to us for a any reason, the machine will need to reach us in all of its original package, because we cannot be responsible for any damage incurred in transit.
The best way to ensure safe travel for your machine is to simply KEEP every bit of the packaging and put them back inside the box, then just store the box out of the way. Easy!
What's the Difference between "Top Loading" and "Front Loading" machines?
Whether a sewing machine is referred to as "top-loading" or "front-loading" it is the bobbin position that tells them apart.
A "Top Loading" machine has a "drop-in" bobbin, where the bobbin goes in from the top, directly underneath your needle and presser foot. The lid is usually clear so you can see the bobbin.
This type of mechanism is called "Horizontal Full Rotary Hook", where the bobbin is driven by the machine to go round and round in full circle movements. Horizontal refers to the bobbin position - it sits horizontally in your machine and faces up.
A "Front Loading" machine has a different spot for your bobbin. It is hidden behind the storage box, inside a trap door. You cannot see the bobbin at all until you open the trap door - and then you will see a metal bobbin case, which is removable. You filled bobbin goes inside this metal case.
This type of mechanism is called "Vertical Oscillating Hook", where the bobbin goes side to side instead of completing a circle. The bobbin stays vertical inside the bobbin case.
What does "Low Shank" and "High Shank" mean?
It means "shank height" or "shank size".
Most domestic machines have LOW shanks. Just to give you an idea, we sell about 10 low shank presser feet to ONE high shank foot.
That means if you don't know what sort of shank your machine has, it's probably a LOW shank. Because High Shank machines are generally "fancy" embroidery models which are more costly, and those who invest in these models tend to know exactly what shank type it is.
Which one is JR1012?
JR1012 is a "Front-Loading" machine, and uses "Vertical Oscillating Hook" mechanism.
This model has LOW shank.
Can I buy other presser feet?
Sure! Please see individual listing in our store for details.
This machine only comes with two in the box, but with the BONUS extra you also receive a Standard 15-Piece Presser Feet Set. This is a special package from us (and NOT Janome branded).
That means while Janome Australia did not include any specialty foot in the box, you're pretty well covered, because of the bonus feet set package!
Can I do free-motion quilting and embroidery with the JR1012?
Yes. Instead of dropping the feed dog, you would simply pop the darning plate over the feed dog and cover it up (so that the machine does not "feed" the material for you), allowing you to "steer" the stitching in any direction for free-motion work. See below (shown without any presser foot).
Where Do I Go For Regular Service Or To Purchase Parts and Accessories?
Janome Japan has been manufacturing some of the BEST machines since 1921. Because of their popularity and reliability any issues with service or parts are easy and cheap to solve.
We also supply other feet and attachments to suit - please check their individual listings in our store for details.
All spare parts and additional accessories are available from any mechanic who looks after Janome. Just let them know it is a "Front Loading" Janome Machine with "Low Shank". They will also be able to service your machine regularly, so you can easily keep your machine working at optimal condition.
From my experience, my Janome has been like a Toyota car - always reliable, simple to operate, easy to buy parts and cheap to service. What else could you ask for in a sewing machine?

Check Out What Other Happy Janome JR1012 Owners Say About Their Machine...
"The Janome 1012 is a great sewing machine, especially for beginners and those who are looking for a less complicated machine. When we set out to find a sewing machine, we wanted to find one that met four criteria:
A.) It had to be affordable. We have a tight budget.
B.) We wanted it to be mechanical, with fewer features that might play-up later. A good mechanical machine with a metal body will last a long time.
C.) The machine had to be dependable.
D.) We wanted a machine that could be used for quilting and other projects that require several layers. Most of the less-expensive machines are so cheaply made or so lightweight that they can't be used for any serious work.
Janome JR1012 fit all of these criteria.We've had the machine for two weeks now and have used all of the different features. It works great. We've also made several big projects using this machine, so we know it works well. We finished a handbag for a cousin's birthday last night. Some of the stitches had to go through many layers, most of them heavyweight, and the machine happily went over all of them. That's saying something."
- Erica, a Happy Customer
"Janome is a very trusted name in the sewing machine world, and when I sought out to buy a new machine a few weeks ago I did plenty of research before buying this model.
I cannot stress how amazing this machine is, glides through thick layers of fabric with ease, very easy to thread, nice basic stitches and the tension is perfect right out the box.
I will recommend this machine to anyone and everyone who wants to get started sewing as this basic machine will be sure to please! :)"
- Ruby, a Happy Customer
"I'm 58 and have have sewn since I was 12 years old, even as a professional seamstress for a while.
I couldn't be happier with this machine. It's easy to thread. Smooth bobbin action. Multiple stitching options and really can handle most fabric weights. It's not industrial strength so I wouldn't try it on anything terribly heavy like multiple layers of leather.
However, it did a good job at fixing my son's jeans and transitioned well between heavy flat felled seams with multiple layers and single layers of denim.
I have little time for any real dress making or detailed tailoring these days, but it's a very serviceable machine. Great purchase with fast delivery."
- Jan, a Happy Customer
"First off, let me just say that I am a beginner to sewing machines. I have never taken a class or had anyone tell me how to use this machine. I got this machine to sew as a hobby.
The default stitches is more than enough for a beginner. I do suggest you get some good quality thread because I had to re-thread the machine countless times due to poor quality thread. If you read the instruction book, you should know all you need to to start making some stuff.
I already made a messenger bag that I have been using everyday for school, some wallets, a scarf and more. In fact, an hour after I got it, I had made a hair bow already. It was really easy to teach myself how to sew despite no previous experience.
This machine is heaven to me because it managed to sew through 6 layers of home deco fabrics! It didn't even make any sounds like it was in pain. I have yet to try it on several layers of denim but I am pretty sure it will no have trouble doing so.
Be careful of sewing TOO much layers though. I tried to sew so much layers that it reached the foot and it couldn't even more and the needle snapped!
ALSO. If you have any trouble with the thread catching or breaking or whatever, I found that the solution to these kinds of problem is just patience and removing the bobbin case and then removing parts behind it. It is extremely easy assembling it back together. If you don't know how, just look at your instruction booklet. It has a diagram telling you how to assemble the pieces back together. Whenever my thread catches and get stuck, I just removed the bobbin area's pieces and it unstuck itself. I hope that makes sense because discovering that was my life saver when I thought I broke my sewing machine.
As for the backward stitches, I find it really accessible and easy to use because the lever is in the front and so large.
You can also take out the extension bit for free-arm sewing. That is how you can sew sleeves or remove the bobbin case. Inside the extension you can store any thread, bobbins, seam ripper, etc.
The bobbin winder is also super easy to use, as well as the foot pedal you use to sew. You can go REALLY slow if you are not as experienced (like me) or go REALLY fast if you start to get the hang of it.
I'm really glad I got a Janome and I hope it doesn't break in the near future since it's so cheap!
I'm pretty sure most if not all the problems I am having (such as the thread getting stuck) are from user errors. I still have no idea when to adjust the tension!
In all, it's superb for first timers! I hope this is useful for beginners that have no previous experience in sewing."
- Lauren, a Happy Customer
"I have very little previous sewing experience, so a fair amount of research led me to purchase this machine, and I am pleased with my purchase.
First I narrowed down my search to the Janome brand, since several review websites indicated that Janome has high quality parts (usually metal, not plastic). Other brands didn't seem to have the same reputation for machines manufactured in the past several years. So, I chose to narrow my search to Janome machines. This machine looked both affordable and easy to use, and it is just that.
The instruction manual is very easy to read, with line drawings to guide you, and it will help you figure out anything you need to know about operating the machine.
The presser foot is easy to quickly change out with the other foot attachments, such as the zipper foot, by releasing a small lever on the back. I found it was very easy to sew zippers to a dress and a pillow cover that I made.
The feed dogs (the gripping "teeth" that guide your fabric through as you sew) can be covered/disabled if you don't want to use them at times.
I haven't tried sewing buttons or making buttonholes with it yet, so I can't speak to that function.
As for stitching, the options are basic, which keeps it simple for a beginning user. Basically there are a couple of straight stitches and a few zig zag stitch options, which are helpful for either very basic embroidery patterns, or for creating zig zag seams for stretchy fabric.
It is easy to adjust the length of stitches as well as the stitch type by turning the dials on the front of the machine.
Filling and threading the bobbin was very easy to do, just follow the instruction manual.
I haven't had to adjust the tension at all since I bought the machine, and I have sewn on woven fabrics as well as t-shirt type jersey fabrics.
If you're sewing with delicate or stretchy fabrics I do recommend buying some universal ball point needles since they help prevent accidental tearing or snagging of the fabric.
Also the foot pedal is nice to use because you can control the speed by pressing lighter or more firmly on the pedal, much like driving a car. :)
I would definitely recommend this machine."

"I've been sewing since I was a little girl and now my 7 year old desperately wanted a sewing machine. We looked high and low before settling on this one and I'm very glad we did.
We took it out of the box, and started right away winding the bobbin, threading and setting the tension. My daughter happily sewed with my guidance her first project - a pillow case.
It is very lightweight, easy to figure out due to simple dials and instructions.
My advice is to buy extra needles and bobbins to have on hand. One thing I warned her is that she will need to be careful with the spool holders as they are plastic and I can see that getting broken off if she is not careful and doesn't put it back down when storing the machine."
