I have been waiting to write this blog post for a while now! I’m so excited. Janome reached out to me two months ago to see if I would like to try out their new M100 machine, which is Anna Maria Horner’s limited edition machine. Without any hesitation, I agreed! I’ve been using Janome machines […]

    Hi, thanks for the review! I have a question about this machine. I know it comes with a 1/4 inch foot and I know you can move the needle to the right from the 3.5 center position to a 4. Does that give you a good scant 1/4 inch seam or does the needle move a bit too much? I tested one today and didn’t have a ruler to measure that scant seam. I love the thread cutter!ReplyCancel

    • @christine.higgins hi there! So I am obsessed with this machine. I get a perfect 1/4″ on the machine. I do not use the 1/4″ foot- I actually use the A foot on 3.5 position or the walking foot on 4 or 4.5″. The tension on the machine is perfect every single time I use it. If I can answer any other questions please feel free to ask. ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the tips. The pattern was a little confusing as it’s written. Thankfully I’m using only two main colors and won’t have to math too much.ReplyCancel
