This is my first embroidery machine, but I have sewn for years. Janome machines are super user friendly, and this is no exception. Switching from embroidery to regular sewing is easy. Downloading designs onto the machine, or transferring them on a jump drive is easy to figure out. When you get stuck, the online tutorials are super useful. Sending designs that I have created on the computer to the machine is also easy, and pretty self explanatory.
The one thing that I have not gotten used to, or understand, is how much bobbin thread wastes. It automatically stops when bobbin thread is at risk to run out, but there is always plenty left. I have to manually pull the rest off, but it is so much to waste. It could be the same as other embroidery machines, and I just do not have experience with them. It is not the same as a regular sewing machine, though, as a regular machine lets you use the bobbin up, so you do not waste.
I have literally made a thousand things on this machine. I love it so much!
