Janome Derby Portable Sewing Machine- Lady Lilac is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a child who is learning I bought this for my 7 year old granddaughter for Christmas and it's the perfect machine for her to learn on. Although it not made for any serious sewing by an adult, it would be ok for light mending projects. Definitely made more for a child. The foot pedal is pretty cheap plastic and probably won't hold up to a "lead foot". The machine runs pretty slowly so it's great for a beginner and the pressure foot is big enough that it reduces the risk of a child getting their finger under there when it's running. I would not recommend this for anyone looking to take up any serious sewing but would highly recommend it for a child or beginner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment I bought 3 of these cute little machines for my daughters who I was going to teach how to sew. I trusted the Janome name, and also have a similar one that is a previous model with the name "Blossom" that works fabulous. I was disappointed when the machines kept jamming and the thread tension dial would not correct the bobbin thread from coming up to the top of the material. I am returning them for a refund to try to buy different machines, I want my daughters to enjoy sewing and not be frustrated. Before doing so, I will take to a class where my quilting buddies will be and have them try them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME MACHINE I purchased the Lady Lilac for my 5 year old Granddaughter for Christmas. She is absolutely thrilled! This machine works very, very well. I especially love that her fingers cannot fit between the needle, and pressure foot. She has already sewn, her first Draw String Bag, and a Pair of Leggings, and has moved on to her 3rd Project! The machine sews beautifully! I tested all of stiches, and it is a Jewel. I highly recommend this machine not just for children, but for anyone that might want to do simple alterations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gramddaughter's birthday gift I bought this for my granddaughter for her 5th birthday. She is 5 going on 20. She wants to learn how to sew really bad. It seems perfect for her. Not overwhelming for her at all. Just used it the other day for the first time. She loved the different stitches and the color. Her favorite color. She made a pillow for her puppy. Don't have a picture of the pillow but I do have one of her sewing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little utility machine. Has wonderful "Janome" feed dog and see through top bobbin. It's a little noisy and doesn't have a light, but overall sews a nice stich.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No light" I purchased this dandy little machine online so did not realize it had no light built in. It's great for taking to quilt workshops, but it takes a magnifying glass and the flashlight from my iPhone to get the needle threaded

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little machine I originally saw this demonstrated on a tv shopping channel. I have another portable sewing machine that is inconvenient to get out for little mending jobs. I purchased this machine for those little jobs. I used it the other day to do just that. It did a very nice job. However I wish it had a light to make threading the needle easier.
