Janome 18750 Sewing Machine Review

Janome 18750 Sewing MachineThe Janome 18750 sewing machine is my type of machine and I love the way Hello Kitty looks on it. She is reminding me that I should eat one apple a day for less visits to the doctor’s office. Seriously, she is just too cute to resist.

I don’t really mind if others think of me as maybe childish when it comes to something that I like and I am not embarrassed to show it off even when I am an adult. Instead others might give you smiley faces when they see you are using this machine.

This sewing machine is designed for both beginners and experts. It is fairly easy to use. Honestly, I am no expert when it comes to sewing but I want a sewing machine to be able to grow along with my sewing skills. At least I can be able to do more things and bigger projects with this sewing machine.

Janome 18750 Review

The overall rating for this sewing machine is pretty high. As you can see from below it received a little above a 4. Don’t know if you think this machine is expensive or not because everyone thinks differently. It is really depending on your budget. For example there is a user who is saying it is well worth the price and considering it is cheap when it comes to its features or functionality.

Pros And Cons

  • Pros:
    The machine runs quietly when it is being used, so it wouldn’t bother others who need to do some studying. It is also great to have a bright light running on this machine. Not to mention there is no need for the foot pedal because of the stop and start available function.

  • Cons:
    Doesn’t like the plastic bobbins. Yeah, some other companies make their bobbins to be metal, but Janome makes them in plastic. Most of Janome sewing machines are using this kind of bobbin.

    Another thing I like to mention is Janome doesn’t make available parts for this machine anymore and it might be hard to find repairs if for whatever reason the machine breaks down.


This sewing machine is backed by a five year limited manufacturer warranty. Sorry, I can’t find the manual for this Janome sewing machine. I have searched on the Janome site and it looks like the download link is down. Hopefully, they will update it soon and then I will put the download link on here.

  1. The reason Janome makes their bobbins in plastic is because Janome-made drop-in bobbin sewing machines have a magnetic bobbin system so metal bobbins will cause it to malfunction…even to the point of demagnetizing and that’s an expensive repair. Genuine Janome bobbins are made with rubber added to the resin and have a J imprinted on them. They are very good quality and not on the same level as ordinary plastic bobbins at all. I am not connected with Janome in any way…just a faithful user of Janome bobbins for my Janome drop in bobbin sewing machines.

    I have a brother computerized sewing machine that also requires plastic (brother) bobbins. A response from brother customer service stated that although brother sewing machines do not have a magnetized bobbin system, plastic brother bobbins are required because it’s a fail-safe feature if the bobbin system over heats from sewing friction…the plastic bobbin will fail (crack) before other more expensive parts of the sewing machine will be effected…so brother sewing machines are engineered to work more effectively using brother plastic bobbins than using metal bobbins. In fact metal bobbins are not to be used at all in my brother sewing machine.
