Feeling unsure because you've never bought a sewing machine online before? Don't be. Because you're not alone...

"Hi Shelley,

My machine was delivered today. Thanks so much.

Just wanted say that I was reluctant to buy online not knowing if I would receive the order (its not every day you spend $1200 on a sewing machine), but I have been pleasantly surprised by a number of things.

Firstly the depth of information about the product on your website which helped me choose the right machine, the overall price, and the fast turn around.

Now I look forward to seeing what the Janome S3 can do!!"

- Sari, Cooma, New South Wales

Is this Your Dream Machine that You've Been Looking For?

irst 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 Skyline S3 for You?

You'd choose THIS over other models because...

  • you love to quilt and do larger projects - so having more room in the throat area is essential
  • while you'd like some embroidery, you have no real need to go the extra expense for a true "embroidery machine"
  • you'd go with the S3 over other Skyline models because it's the only 7mm machine in the range - that means you can still use most of the feet from your previous machines.
  • this is the last machine you're planning to get - and you want to make it the ultimate dream machine!

Sounds like YOU. Right...?
Then Give the Janome S3 a Go.

"I am sooo glad I bought this machine, it's really quite easy to use. Within 1/2 hour of unpacking it, I was sewing away!

Easy to thread, easy to use, and the auto thread cut are great. Very easy to change the feet and stitch selection. Everything you would ever need is included - even a DVD!

The extra throat space is a great plus especially since I am a quilter. I previously owned a Janome and wanted to stick with them and this model was a great choice!

I highly recommend this machine! The only thing I wish for is a hard carrying case - although it does come with a lovely fabric cover with pockets."

Like all Janomes, the
Skyline S3 is designed to withstand daily usage - it produces beautiful stitches over and over again - thanks to the precise stitch mechanism Janome is known for, you can now create professional results every single day!

So if You're Ready...
All You Need to Do is Place Your Order.

Did You Know.....

Skyline S3 is one of the few machines these days that gives you precise control of Foot Pressure Adjustment - to suit  your fabric.

Let me explain...

Back in the days, when all sewing machines are mechanical, there was ALWAYS a dial where you could adjust foot pressure manually to suit your fabric.

The pressure adjustment sets the amount of pressure that the presser foot places on the fabric (try saying this line three times. Fast).

Your machine provides downward pressure on the presser foot, which holds the fabric between the feed dog and sewing machine foot itself.

Naturally, the amount of pressure required differs dramatically between sewing light weight sheer fabric and multiple layers of denim.

That means having manual adjustment is really useful when you use a wide variety of fabric in different weight and texture.

One example is when working with knits or slippery fabrics, as it reduces the "pull" on the top layer of fabric. You'll find that you have more even seams.

Why is this important? 

Using the incorrect pressure setting can drastically affect the end result; it can create problems such as skipped, uneven or irregular stitches, fabric puckers or the machine not feeding the fabric properly.

Having said that, you can ALWAYS use a walking foot, roller foot, or Teflon foot to solve any of the above - so you can still sew evenly and smoothly with perfect stitches and pucker-free if your machine does NOT have adjustable foot pressure (most modern machines don't).

So, when do you make adjustment to the Foot Pressure?

  • If you find your fabric slips when the presser foot is down, you need to increase the pressure on the presser foot.
  • If the fabric is held so tightly that the feed dog is unable to move the fabric, decrease the amount of pressure on the presser foot.
*Remember - This is just a  rule-of-thumb type of guide*

When it comes to fabric and how it reacts to sewing there is no exact science or magic fool-proof formula.

So when in doubt,  Try it Out!

What's the Difference Between Skyline S3 and Other Skyline Models?

Here's what I've prepared for you - a one-glance view features comparison on S7, S5 & S3:

The BEST Reason for Choosing Skyline S3 over the Skyline S5, S7, or S9?

Notice the maximum zigzag stitch width - it is 7 mm (as opposed to being 9 mm).

This is important because it allows you the greatest flexibility with optional presser feet & other attachments. For any specilty feet - say, a Concealed Zipper Foot or Bias Binding Foot - you can easy find one that fits regardless of design & brands. Often saving quite a bit in prices.

Beside, most of your mordern sewing machines these days are 7mm - that means if you already have existing snap-on feet from other machines, chances are you can happily use on your new Skyline S3 - saves you having to buy an additional set!

Whereas in a 9 mm width machine - such as the Skyline S7, Skyline S5 or Skyline S9 - you're restricted with just a few options when it comes to presser feet.

Evenif you have snap-on feet from a previous machine - and could snap them on - the  alignments is quite different from a 7mm to a 9mm machine, so they won't work. That's because the needle position is totally different from a 9mm machine to a 7mm.

That means if you go with a Skyline S5, S7, or S9 you WILL need to invest in a new set of 9mm feet. And ALWAYS having to go with branded version, with limited choices.

I know this because I often have customers with 9mm models, asking me for help find specialty feet to fit their machines. It's not always easy or possible.

That means the Skyline S3 is the sensible choice for you - especially if you're planning to optimise your sewing repertoire - such as ruffles, bias binding, even for installing invisible zippers!

Would you like to see the Janome Skyline S3 in action?

Here, watch this video:

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.

Sounds Good?

Still not sure?

Here's what one (of many) happy customers had to say after purchasing their Janome Skyline S3:

"My new Janome Skyline is an awesome model. It's a serious sewing machine, and certainly not for beginners with limited budget.

It's super heavy duty, super smooth, and once you unpack it you just knew that you will probably never have to buy another sewing machine again.

It has tons of stitches, two thread spool holders, heaps of needle positions, a handy stitch chart, and best of all...an automatic thread cutter. Another feature is the presser foot pressure button which makes sewing through thicker fabrics a breeze.

With this machine I never have to worry when buying heavy duty or thick fabric - with this machine I am confident I can complete any sewing project I tackle.

It comes with a giaganic work space compare to a normal machine, and lots of feet. One more great thing is that the base come apart for sewing sleeves... so if you do a lot hemming or cicular work this machine is great for you.

Another point to consider is althouhg the machine looks like it's easy to move and light weight, it's not. It's heavy and not easily moved around like some lighter machines.

I found I set my machine up in one place and prett much leave it there. So I just take my smaller machine instead if I need to go anywhere.

I'm happy with this machine and I give it five stars."

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 Skylinen S3?

The Skyline S3 is a "Top-Loading" machine, and uses "Horizontal Full Rotary Hook" mechanism. It has HIGH shank. 7mm Maximum Stitch Width.

Can I buy other presser feet?

Sure! Please see individual listing in our store for details.

This machine comes with seven, so you might want to get a few specialty feet.

Just remember to ask for "High Shank Foot that fits a 7mm Machine" - and it should fit!

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 "Top Loading" Janome Machine with "High 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?

Great question!

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?

Check Out What Other Happy Janome Skyline S3 Owners Say About Their Machine...

"My new Janome Skyline is very impressive.

I'd call it a professional computerised machines with loads of decorative stitches, seven buttonholes, numbers and letters in three languages, and many other utility and everyday stitches. There's even a chart inside the lid so you don't have to find the book each time you want to try a new stitch.

It has the BEST foot storage compartment container that I have ever seen or had with a sewing machine. There is a thread cutter "scissors" button that I have never had before & absolutely love - it cuts the thread when pushed after stitching and you only have about 1/2" of thread left on the fabric.

It has a large throat area that's a dream to use when quilting or sewing any larger project. This machine is really fantastic and wonderful to own. I recommend it."

- Tina, a Happy Customer

"I bought this machine for my wife's birthday. She is a quilter and was thrilled with the quality of this product.

She has had several higher end sewing machines over the years but tells me this far and away the best she has ever owned!

She says the features are outstanding and ease of use amaze her each time she works on her quilts!!"

- Gary, a Happy Hubby


"I have had my machine approximately a month at this time. I have been going through the instruction book and practicing the stitches. The manual is very easy to understand and everything seems to be going as intended.

This machine is very heavy and solid, this is not one that you can take to class. It does not have a solid hard cover, only a soft cover.

Still, I think it is a good buy for the price. Because I had collected some quotes for 3 other top brands, and to get a machine that had all the features of my Skyline S3 I would have to spend another $700 to $1200 depending on the brand - so I'm definitely getting value out of this one!

I will be starting a big Christmas project in a short time, and can't wait to give this machine a good workout."

- Mary, a Happy Customer

"I love this machine. It has so many features that make things quick and easy, and it comes with a large number of pressure feet as well.

It runs great and has a longer arm with larger surface, so I can fit my quilts in there easier.

I am an advanced beginner in quilting and this was a nice choice both for the price and quality.

I started with a $200 machine, but this is so much better to learn on because of the quality and features. At the same time, being a beginner, it is not so over-the-top expensive that I risked overspending for my skill level."

- Amanda, a Happy Customer

"I love this sewing machine! I've been sewing for over 40 years and I am sorry that I didn't buy a Janome sooner.

This machine really performs. No hasseling with tensions, no skipped stitches, and no problems.

I love being able to adjust the pressure on the foot...made teddy bears for all the Grandkids and it was a dream to be able to easily adjust to suit different fabric.

This is a nice heavy duty machine that is definitely worth the price. Spent much more on my previous machine but am much happier with this one."

- Susan, a Happy Customer

"My new Skyline has been my daily companion since it's arrival. I had been using a very basic and trust worthy 29 year old machine, and I had no idea what I was missing.

This machine is easy to understand, simple to use and quite reliable. I have not skipped a beat and haven't stop sewing yet. I have enjoyed every single minute and would not imagine that any day in the future would be any different.

The instructions are clear and understandable for the simplest of users and make quilts looks wonderfully complicated and professional.

I have used many of the lovely and intricate stitches just to see what they look like, dancing across the fabric and am absolutely delighted that this machine now has a home on my quilting table. Just wonderful."

- Louise, a Happy Customer

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!

secure paymentHow 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!
That means your parcel may reach you by either Courier or Aust Post.

In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.

How is my postage calculated?

Great question.

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.
This way we can double check the postage for you. Simple!

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!
    • All items we sell are Stored in a Clean and Smoke Free Environment so You can Rest Asured they will be In Top Condition when they arrive at your place.

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".

It is best to providing these details by sending us a quick message - this means your parcel will be dispatched to you faster.

Very Happy
By: on 17 September 2021

Hello Shelley, Just writing to let you know that I'm very happy to have purchased my Janome Skyline S3 from you. It's during Melbourne 6th lockdown. All retail stores were closed. I couldn't test drive any machine in store. So I researched extensively online. I read the superb detailed descriptions and other ins and outs about this machine and other models. I chose the Janome S3 over others as this will be my 1st and last machine. It's not cheap by any means but it covers all the requirements I need now and hopefully to more advance sewing in the future. Buying online was easy and considering the lockdown, delivery was as scheduled. Thank you Shelley and looking forward to sewing some of your projects. Vivian Webb Melbourne 2021
