Janome Sewist 500 Sewing Machine is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First New Sewing Machine! I purchased this Machine about a month ago after using a used Singer sewing machine for years had that belonged to my mother. She had purchased hers back in the 70's and although it had held up well, I am so thrilled with this new Janome Sewist 500 Sewing Machine! It is the perfect transition from old to new and being only someone who is an intermediate seamstress, I love this machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little machine I purchased this machine as a backup to my loaded electronic machine. It is strong, performs well, has enough stitches to do what is needed, and I really like the one step buttonhole, the detail that sold me on this model. I am an experienced semi-professional seamstress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! I LOVE this machine!!! It is rock solid, easy to use, and an easy transition from my old Singer 1950s model ;) I wasn't overwhelmed by the gizmos and gadgets and didn't need to read a small book to figure out how to use it. If you haven't sewn in 30+ years and are looking to get back into sewing -- this is a great machine for transitioning into today's capabilities.
