If you're looking at this Janome sewing machine, chances are...
- You're just starting out and not sure you'll sew a lot

- You're after better value than just a sewing machine
Feeling unsure because you've never owned a sewing machine before?
Don't be. Because you're not alone...
"I’m a beginner teaching myself to sew and I’ve had a great time with this machine, it’s so easy to use that I’ve hardly had to use the manual, but the manual is really straight forward and easy to follow.
Even though it’s a “beginner” machine, it is plenty enough for even a more experienced sewer’s projects and I find it to be surprisingly strong for a little machine. I'm so happy with it I think I’ll stick with Janome!"

Finally... an Affordable Basic Sewing Machine
That's Robust Enough for Denim Yet Easy Enough to Use
It'll Get You Started with Minimum Budget!
First of all... Congratulations on your decision to buy a brand new sewing machine!
Choosing the right machine will give you many hours of sewing pleasure, and it's important that you feel comfortable & happy that you've made the right choice.
But... I also know how daunting it can be to consider getting a sewing machine.
Because there are so many to choose from.... where to start? Fear not, and read on....
Is Janome FD-216 for You?
You'd choose THIS over other models because...
- you don't have a big budget but still want a decent sewing machine - and you don't mind learning the ropes
- you only sew / mend occasionally, and just want a basic, inexpensive machine that does the job
- you already have a main machine. This one is intended to be set aside for shirring / ruffling / other specialised tasks
- it's a gift for a young one - not sure they will eventually sew a lot - though you prefer to start them on a "real" machine over a cheap plastic toy
Sounds like YOU. Right...?
Then Give the FD216 a Go.

"When I was in the market for a sewing machine, I had no idea what to look for except affordability, since I don't plan on doing a whole heap of sewing .
Though I also wanted a decent enough machine so that I wouldn't need to replace it anytime soon, if ever. But, most importantly, my new machine needs to be easy to use and reliable.
So FD-216 is the model I chose, and it is amaaazzziiingg. It makes even a novice like me seem fairly compotent haha.
I was able to get sewing out of the box, and with a few practice runs I started to feel pretty confident. Plus, it's fairly quiet, and offers excellent stitches. The needle threader is so handy!
I really love this machine and the results it produces. If you're new and want something reliable, this is your machine of choice."

Did You Know.....
FD-216 is THE BEST budget machine that replaces the popular JR1012 - with improvements and even better value!
JR1012 has been one of our most popular modles - because it was the most decent entry-level Janome that's still affordable.
Now, Janome manages to make some improvements with the updated FD215 - and still keeping it at the price everyone loves!
What are the Improvments?
You know how annoying it is when you're ready to sew but just can't seem to thread the needle?! Well, your new FD216 now comes with a built-in needle threader that was previously only available for the more expensive models. Happy days :-)
Updated Bobbin Position
Your new FD216 has been updated to be TOP loading - that means you simply pop the bobbin in place and start sewing. Easy!
Better stiil - you can see how much thread is left on the bobbin - so you'd never run out of thread in a awkward spot ever again :-)
Better for Free-Motion Quilting
Ever wanted to tried free-motion quilting? Now you don't need to get an expensive machine for it.
Simply drop your feed dogs with the level behind the storage so you can "drive" free-hand to quilt.
The only other thing you'll need is a Free-Motion Darning Foot - available separately.
More Stitches & Feet
The JR1012 only has 13 stitches, your new FD-216 has 16 built-in stitch patterns, which allows you to come up with endless combinations!
You also get more presser feet with the machine.
Read on to see all the inclusions...
Same Internal Metal Frame & Parts
The Standard Presser Foot and the Snap-on Foot Holder are still made of metal.
Even though the needle plate is plastic, Janome has kept the internal frame all metal - while improving the button design to make FD216 more user-friendly - even if you've never sewn before.
So you can enjoy the best and still be within your budget!

Not All Sewing Machines Are Made Equal...
Take a peek: an X-Ray view if you will. The photos here show a Janome JR1012 (which is a previous version of FD216) 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.

Still not sure?
Here's what one (of many) happy customers had to say after purchasing theirs:
"Mum is a seamstress and I've been going to her house to use her machine. I recently decided that I'd like to be able to make and mend at my leisure with my own machine, so I started researching and comparing brands and models.
I didn't want to spend too much on a sewing machine that I wouldn't be using everyday, but I also didn't want a low-quality machine that would only sew one layer of material at a time.
This Janome caught my eye and after a bit of reasearch, I knew this was the one and I bought it on the spot. I am so glad that I did.
This machine feels solid and performs all the basic functions extremely well. I was surprised at how fast I can sew with such a simple machine, that I finished a quick set of curtains in under ten minutes and was over the moon with the results.
It has the ability to sew 16 different stitches and it's sooooo easy to thread with the drop-in bobbin and needle threader. I find myself looking around for things to mend or re-purpose so that I can keep using my machine! It's light enough and compact to stash away easily so I don't have to leave it out, and it's always a breeze to set up - just plug it in and go!
All in all, I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned seamstress, this machine offers a top quality performance to help you create beautiful projects with ease.
I hightly recommend the Janome FD216 Sewing Machine."

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 FD216?
FD216 is a "Top-Loading" machine, and uses "Horizontal Full Rotary 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 FD216?
All you need to do is lowering the feed dogs so that the machine does not "feed" the material for you, allowing you to "steer" the stitching in any direction for free-motion work.
The lever to do this is located behind the removable storage area. Simply act as if you're going to set up for "free-arm" sewing,and you'll find it.
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?
Wondering about Warranty?
In the unlikely event something does go wrong, we've got you covered.
Keep read on below for more details...
Sounds Good - but why wouldn't I buy directly from Janome?
Here's something most people didn't know: Janome Australia doesn't deal directly with the public. Neither does Janome USA or Janome UK.
Actually, the authentic Janome website won't let you place orders. You can find all sorts of information there, but you won't find an "Add to Cart" button if you're looking at the real deal.
In case you come across any website with "Janome" in the name that you could buy from - chances are, you've found someone who'd like you to think that you're dealing directly with Janome Australia themselves. Which isn't the case.
Think about it for a second: when someone is prepared to hide the truth about who they really are, what else might they be hiding?
Why should I shop with you over a dealer with a brick-and-mortar shop?
Yes, it is true that we ARE an online store. We do not have a physical shop front.
That means we take online shopping seriously - because this is ALL we do. This is our life's work and we are 100% commited to look after YOU.
Not having a physical shop front means YOU have our undivided attention.
When you shop with us, there will be no distractions, no other customers to fight over, no waiting in line just to ask a question. It's just you, the products you want, and really detailed description plus heaps of photos (that we take ourselves) to make sure that you know exactly what you are ordering. That's our way of making shopping (and sewing) easier for you!
Instead of worrying about rents, keeping up appearances, and going into price-war with other dealers, our sole focus in on how we can make your shopping experience with us as enjoyable as possible. Because life to too short for poor services and you deserve the BEST - afterall, shopping and sewing should be fun. Right?
Me Too. Let's Place Your Order Now.
I would like to buy more than one. Can you do a better deal?
Absolutely. Group purchases and wholesale enquiries welcome.
Our clients include small business owners in dressmaking / tailoring or alteration, group and schools, as well as craft enthusiast / artisans who sell their creations for additional income.
Email us if you want to purchase more than one, or simply make us an offer..... you might be pleasantly surprised!
Is there a phone number so I could speak to someone?
Sure. We will provide you with a direct contact number as soon as you send us an email.

Check Out What Other Happy Janome Owners Say About Their Machine...
"The Janome FD216 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 FD216 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
"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 with the built-in needle threader. 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
"Let me start by saying that I am not a seamstress & I've never owned a sewing machine before. I made an apron in high school in the 60s that's the extent of my sewing expereience.
I started looking for a machine because I want to sew & be able to make non complicated things, like an apron. I would also like to make simple repairs and alterations of clothing.
So my new Janome FD216 arrived and I was ready to sew! My friend showed me how to do the basics, like thread the machine, fill the bobbin etc. it was much simpler than I thought it would be. I love how simple it was to make all the different decorative stitches. This Janome is great for beginners and experienced sewers. I'm really enjoying teaching myself how to sew! Love this sewing machine!"
- Jill, 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 narrowed my search to only Janome machines. This one 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 lowered 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."
- Margaret, a Happy Customer
"I love this machine , It is so easy to use and so reliable.
Easy bobbin winding and loading and love the clear bobbin, easy to switch stitches with the dial, easy to change needles. Love the needle threader too!
It's lightweight for taking to classes, nice and colourful, with lots offunctions and great bang for the bucks. I am an experienced sewer and I think this machine is great - even if you're a total beginner."
- Nat, a Happy Customer

NOTE: Please use your name with a post code as Bank Reference when making payment. If you have an order reference starting with "N", you can use that one.
IMPORTANT: Because your order is processed promptly once funds are cleared, there won’t be time to make changes to shipping details, So When You Complete Checkout please help us by double checking we have the following:

Now, Let's Get Your Order On Its Way To You!
How long will it take to receive my order?
All fully paid orders placed by 5pm Monday to Thursday will be processed overnight and ready to send by our warehouse - normally the next day or following business day.
Orders placed on Friday and Weekends will be processed on Sunday night - because our warehouse operates Monday to Friday except Public Holidays.
Once it leaves our warehouse, the actual time frame is up to the delivery services. This can vary depending on your location and road conditions.
Any delivery time estimates shown are estimates only - so please use it as a guide line.
You'll receive a few email updates from our system as your order progresses, so please stay tuned on these!
How will my order be sent?
We use a dispatch system that works out the most efficient way to send your order.
This way the postage works out fair and reasonable, and your parcel reaches you quickly as well - because we know you can't wait!
In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.
How is my postage calculated?
Depending on weight and dimension, some times we are able to do Flat Rate across Australia, so the postage is the same no matter where you are.
Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.
Can I get it delivered to my P.O. Box?
Depends on the item (and its dimensions), because Aust Post have size restrictions and couriers are NOT allowed to deliver to a P.O. Box.
Please check with us when in doubt.
If you have nominated a P.O. box, and the item is within Aust Post size, then it will go by Aust Post. Most of the time, this is the case.
When your item is too big, or being sent directly from our supplier, then we need you to provide a physical address so we can send a courier.
Can I get my order sent to a different delivery address?
Your sure can!
When you check out, you can choose to ship your order to your billing address or a different address.
Simply choose the second option, and then fill in the shipping address of where you want you parcel sent.
Please double check we have Your Correct Address so your order can find its way to you!
What if courier services are not available in my area?
Some locations are outside of courier services....
In these cases we CAN arrange for your order to be deliverd to your local post office.
But please provide us with a street address (street number & name) - even if it is the only Post Office in town - as if it is an office address.
A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.
What if I need my order urgently?
No worries, we will do our best. Just let us know.
Please give us as much notice as possible - especially for special occasions like birthdays!
In most cases, we CAN arrange an upgrade from Regular Post to Express Post for a little extra.
Please contact us first so we can update your invoice to show the correct amount.
Do you offer combine shipping?
I want to order more than one item...
Sure! Please "Add to Cart" for all the items you want and let the system work it out for you.
If you're unsure, let us know. A quick message is all we need.
Can I pick up my order?
No. Sorry - unless you're picking up furniture directly from our supplier.
Because most of our items are located in a commercial warehouse - with NO public acess.
There is no shop front - because that's how we can pass on the savings to you!
Some useful things you might want to know:
- Combined Shipping - We are happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases based on the combined weight and dimensions of your items, so add what you like to cart as you go, and check out our shop to see what else you like... you never know what you might find!

The Courier Needs Your Phone Number
When you're completing check-out please make sure your best day time phone number is included - because the courier requires a phone number.
Generally they may never ring you - and they tend to just turn up anyway. But their office needs to have your phone number on file for "just-in-case".

Great Allrounder Sewing MachineBy: robmezo40011815 on 6 September 2023
This is my second purchase from Sew Much Easier. This machine will be a Xmas gift for my daughter who is just starting out on her creative journey. Thankyou Shelley and team for your wonderful service and prompt delivery to us folk in the country that have limited access to machine specialists.(5)
Very happy with my purchaseBy: susanrands03522 on 26 July 2021
I bought this machine for my granddaughter so she can make clothes for her 6 month old son. I was kept notified by email from start to finish about the status of my purchase. My granddaughter is a beginner sewer and she has found the machine very easy to use. She has already made some bibs and has done an amazing job. Very happy with my purchase.(5)
