What Are Owners Saying?
A thorough review of owner comments has provided the following likes and dislikes. It’s a bit of a one way street with this particular sewing machine as dislikes are not easy to find.
- Very quiet
- Intuitive controls and easy to operate
- Great for quilting
- Creates a quality stitch
- Sews smoothly
- Light enough to take to classes
- Includes a hard case
- Sews through heavy fabric
- No extension table
One of the most frequent comments about the 7360 is how easy it is to use. This is a little surprising as it does have quite a few features, but folks say working with the machine is very intuitive. This also makes the 7360 a good fit for both the beginner (easy to use) and the more experienced seamstress (plenty of features). Quite a few people report that the machine is also great for quilting.
The 7360 is considered powerful and it has no problem dealing with heavy, thicker fabrics (it is also capable on lightweight fabrics). Despite the power, many owners are surprised and pleased at the low noise output of the machine. It is considered by most to be very quiet.
There are many comments where owners simply state that they love the sewing machine. Comments contain such phrases as “Great quality” “Love it” “Sews like a dream” “Simply the best” “Worth every dollar”, etc.
Owners also seem to like the Janome brand. Several people report moving from another brand’s machine to this Janome and state that they will now only buy a Janome sewing machine. Janome owners seem a little like Juki owners in this respect – lots of brand loyalty.
Folks like to take the 7360 to classes. Fortunately the machine is not too heavy
and it also comes with a hard case. In addition, there is a carry handle. So the 7360 is designed to be portable.
About the only negative thing a few owners have commented upon is that the sewing machine does not come with an extension table.

Sewing Machine Manual
As usual, the manual for this Janome sewing machine is well written and very detailed. It covers items such as Essential Parts of the Machine, Getting Ready to Sew, Utility Stitches, Sewing Application & Decorative Stitches, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting.
The manual is provided in English, French and Spanish which is great but they alternate every page in each language which is a bit of a confusing format. It is much easier when they provide the entire manual in one language followed by the entire manual in another language, etc. You can see a copy of the manual here: Janome Magnolia Owner’s Manual
