Janome New Home Designer

Built in Japan back when things were made to last a lifetime, this fine New Home Designer features the famous Janome quality, in a steel-drive machine.

It's in such fine, barely-used condition, that it's like finding a brand-new Janome built like they used to make them, to last your lifetime.

This is a straight-stitch/zigzag machine. It uses standard sewing machine needles, and standard class 15 bobbins which you can find wherever sewing supplies are sold.

As you can see, it's in as good a condition on the inside as the outside. Barely used.

(As you can also see, the color looks different because I used a different camera to photgraph it, under different light. It's the same machine.)

And underneath, it's just as pretty.

Here at Stagecoach Road Vintage Sewing Machines, we are passionate about what we do, which is to restore beautiful vintage sewing machines to the best that they can be, because we are in love with the entire genre. The styling, the quality of the materials, the workmanship that went into these great machines just can't be duplicated today.

You, seriously, cannot buy a machine this good, new.

So we search out the best of these fine machines, the ones that are very lightly used, and open them up. We disassemble the tension, the motor, the bobbin case, take off the faceplate, the gear cases, the hand-wheel, the slide plate, the bottom plate, and the back access plate and get down to where the old dried-on oil and grease are. We clean out the packed-in lint and dust, remove the thread-jams, inspect the hook and the needle plate, and generally look for potential problems.

We use high-quality lubricants in all the right places, getting into those spots that aren't as obvious to the average user, and clean out the old hardened grease from the gear cases, and we test the machines to make sure that they are sewing at their best. In our final test, which we video for you to see, we test them on sheeting or flannel, on 8 or more layers of denim, and on at least two-layers of split leather. You'll be able to see and hear your machine sew, before you commit to adopting one of these beautiful machines for your own.

After all of this, each machine is carefully detailed, to bring out it's original beauty. These are some of the finest examples of mid-century styling that you'll find, and we want each machine to be the very best that it can be.

Because we believe in these wonderful, built-to-last machines and in the work we do, we offer this free Lifetime Guarantee:

If you ever have a problem with one of our restored vintage machines, just bring or send it back to us and if we can fix it, we'll do so for free. You, of course, will pay for any parts or shipping.

This beautiful machine came to me without case or table. If you'd like to be able to put this into your standard sized Singer-type table, a 301 cradle is available for sale. It's nearly identical, just a little bigger than the one in the Featherweight table, where the machine clicks in or out with a press of the release lever.

Included with this fine Janome New Home machine are the original user manual, regular zigzag foot, ruffler, and slotted binder.

Sorry, it's SOLD!
