buying a sewing machine – some advices
I am new here and hope to get some advices from you all. It is much appreciated.
I have been looking for a sewing machine for the last two weeks or so. I finally pinned down to Janome 525s. I found dealer able to sell at CAD$300.00 which I think is a good price. I found some good reviews on this machine too.
Yesterday, there was a dealer recommending another machine for me – Janome 625E. It is an electronic machine. He is ok to sell it for CAD$350, which I think it is good deal too. However, I could not find much reviews online for this particular machine. It does more features compare to 525S, eg speed control, up/down needle setting.
I wonder if anyone of you have experiences in 625E, and what’s your opinion? Also, is electronic machine better than mechanical machine? I am only new in sewing.
Also, why there are some dealers told me, if the machine has any problem they will bring back to Janome headquarter to fix but some told me they have their own service department and they fix it there. I wonder if the ones have their service department is realible?
I do travel and live in different countries due to my partner’s job. Do you know if Janome has worldwide warranty? I am sorry for this question because I have trouble contacting Janome in Canada.
Thanks for your help again. I really appreciate !
