Ample Work Area and Ergonomic Design

The seamless, heavy-duty, powder-coated, all metal flatbed offers an uninterrupted, large sewing area with 13.5 inches (343mm) to the right of the needle. With a 5.51 inch (140mm) workspace height and 3.15” of space above the needle plate you’ll complete any sewing project with ease.

Advanced LCD Touchscreen

The advanced touchscreen shows all of the information you need to sew with ease. Select new stitches and memorize your favorites for quick access. The expanded Sewing Applications feature gives you guidance for perfecting a variety of sewing tasks, including those that use optional accessories. With Memorized Quilt Seaming, the machine remembers the length of your seam, so you can cruise through stitching a large number of the same size blocks.

AcuFeed Flex™ Plus

Our AcuFeed™ Layered Fabric Feeding System has long been legendary in the sewing and quilting world for its amazing precision and power. We’ve taken it to the next level with the AcuFeed™ Flex Plus. The system is still removable but, adding and removing it from the machine has become more advanced - simply touch the AcuFeed icon on your screen to engage or disengage the foot. This ensures that the AcuFeed Flex foot is attached correctly and prevents it from becoming dis-engaged prematurely. AcuFeed™ Flex comes in three useful options. The two-pronged AcuFeed™ feet advance fabric flawlessly from the top and bottom. Use this system for quilting, seaming, and traditional sewing. Our special one pronged AcuFeed™ feet give precise control for more detailed work, like installing zippers and matching seams. And, our HP2 AcuFeed Flex foot is designed to work with our HP plate, for the highest level of stitch results.

Professional Grade Needle Plate, HP foot & HP2 foot

Utilize this narrow gauge industrial type feet for curves and precise topstitching. They provide great ease of control and superior visibility. Sized perfectly for creating 1/4” seams, achieve accurate stitches and perfects starts on any type of fabric.

Stitch Tapering Function

Create original designs for borders and decorative effects with the Stitch Tapering Function. This distinctive feature allows you to adjust stitches at a 30, 45, 90, and 120 angle to combine and edit built-in stitches. Apply this specialized technique through 41 stitches with the Tapering function.

Easy Threading Bobbin Case and Cover

The specially designed bobbin case and cover mean there’s no need to pull long thread tails up and through when you first thread the machine. Slip the bobbin thread in the cover plate guide; the built in cutting blades trim the tail to the correct length for a superclean start to your stitching line. After the initial threading, the auto-thread cutter takes care of trimming and re-setting the tails each time.

What an absolute pleasure talking with Paul and Fred. They are polite and helpful, and their customer service went way beyond anything I have experienced in my entire life - WOW!. I ordered this fabulous M7 Continental on Tuesday, and it was delivered the very next day, and I have already quilted 40% of a king size quilt 110" x 110". The bobbin sensor, which alerts you when the bobbin is almost empty is great, as is the vast throat space and the extension table. The machine is most definitely worthy of the award. There are so many great things about this fabulous machine. CONGRATULATIONS JANOME!

The shop and people are amazing AQS was cancelled but i was able to get a machine at a super show price and even though the store is closed due to the pandemic for people to enter, they offer curbside pickup!! I would never get a machine anywhere else.
The janome is big but typical Janome quality for sewing, great manual, and the accuspark is a wonderful resource. The FMQ is amazing, perfect 1/4” seams, still learning the machine but I would recommend.
