Puppy Love, Janome DC2050 Review


It’s official – I’m in love. I bought an amazing new Janome DC2050 in the weekend. She is fantastic. Montana Designs asked me if I could write a review. And I sure can! I’ve copied the format from Pattern Review seeing as they’re the formula on review writing. So here we go:


Approx price: NZ$499 was the actual price

I’ve had this machine for: four days

Recommended: yes I am infatuated

Features: these are all the features listed on the website. She does a stunning 49 different stitches (including buttonholes etc). That means this sewing machine goes backwards and does zigzag stitches too – pretty exciting when you compare it to my grandma’s sewing machine which I had been using until now! You can also sew button holes and shapes like flowers.

What I like about this machine: Everything. It has a function that threads the needle for you, there’s a needle up/ down function (way cooler than it sounds), I never seem to have to do anything with the tension, it’s easy to thread – to name a few. Also, this machine is computerised so it is really easy to use. AND it has this great function where you can moderate the speed at which you sew (using the play, fast forward buttons) for when you need to be precise (again very useful!)

Things i don’t like about this machine: some may call this puppy love but I can’t think of anything I don’t like about my sewing machine. It’s kinda like that Moldy Peaches song Anyone But You.

So now I need a name! Can you help me think of a name for my new machine? I’m thinking – something homely and sweet and old fashioned but sleek too. Got it?! The winner will receive this vintage pattern


Do you have a great name for your sewing machine?
