I absolutely LOVE my Skyline S5. I purchased it after using it for a class at a local quilt show. I never thought much about Janome, but I also had never used one so really didn't have anything to judge it by. Well, I could not leave class without this machine! I have a very high tech embroidery machine which cost thousands more. But I honestly would say I love my Skyline S5 for everyday sewing so much better. I actually think I would get rid of the fancy machine before the S5. It is so solid, it feels rooted to my table. Stable, beautiful stitches, just lovely work. I can't say enough good things about it. My one complaint is that there is no warning feature for the bobbin running out. The quality of this machine is top notch and I would definitely consider other Janomes in the future.

I am enjoying this machine. My only true complaint is for the price of this machine it could have had a bobbin and upper thread sensors.

I recently upgraded to an S5. I had the Janome 7050 for only a few months and even thoughI liked it, the dealer had an upgade option if it was purchased within a year. I saw the S5 demonstrated and upgraded on the spot. They offer 3 years worth of one-on-one classes on using the machine. I took my first one and was overwhelmed by all it could do. I am doing a lot of exploring, practicing and learning the ins and outs of this machine. I am very impressed with what I have learned so far and plan on more one-on-one time with the dealer instructors.
