A compact companion and perfect to take to sewing classes or your quilting club. But don't think of it as a stripped-down portable sewing machine, its fully loaded. The Janome 760 starts with 60 stitches for a whole host of tasks for dressmaking, crafting or this machine is probably more at easy when its used for quilting projects. Explore five styles of automatic one-step buttonholes plus a bright, easy-to-read LCD display.
Imagine all the computerised trickery of a larger heavyweight machine, but squeezed into a smaller body. You even have a facility to run the Janome JP 760 by finger tip! without using the foot control. Start and stop at the touch of a button, plus it has an handy maximum speed control lever which only allows stitching up to your pre-selected speed, its vital for any quilting machine.
Janome's magnetic type full rotary hook delivering precise stitches on all types of fabric help make it quite while running. The bobbin is easily inserted from the top and bobbin thread supply is visible under the see-through cover. The feed balance adjusting dial allows you to adjust and correct stretch stitch patterns as needed to accommodate any type of fabric or number of layers.
Using the needle up/down button you can automatically end each seam with the needle either up or down. Saves you time cranking the hand wheel to position the needle where you want, and is perfect for pivoting. Also the Janome JP760 has the automatic needle threader!
Another function button is the lock stitch, it automatically locks off your stitch at the end of the seam. Especially useful for repetitive seams and decorative effects.
Quickly drop the feed dogs to sew free motion embroidery for quilting, darning, attaching buttons and other applications where feed dogs are not necessary.
With the Jem Platinum you get legendary Janome stitch quality, sturdy construction and reliability of a full-size machine, but at only 3/4 the size of a standard model it weighs in at just under 12 lbs.

LEEDS Review by Jenny
My overall rating is:out of 5. Excellent
Have just received my order of a Janome 760. I am an experienced quilter who has put up with an old machine for many years. What a breath of fresh air the new machine is, everything happens at the touch of a button.
Amazing, and what good service from your selves.
Many thanks. (Posted on 10/26/2007)
Lincoln Review by Carolyn
My overall rating is:out of 5. Excellent
Have had my Janome 760 for a day and had such fun trying it out. I have only been a quilter for 2 years but was beginning to get frustrated with my previous machine which was quite basic but this new machine is wonderful and so easy to use and has some really useful features; in fact for the price I cant believe what such good value it is.
The service received from yourselves was second to none, thank you. (Posted on 1/31/2007)
