Janome 6500P Vs 6300P Comparison In Detail

This is a standoff between two finely crafted 'Memory Craft' machines from Janome. These two are very popular advanced sewing machines in US. What we want to know is, what extras will you get with 6500P in comparison with 6300P. Understandably Janome 6500P comes with more features than 6300P. Let us have a closer look at their features and performance.

Janome 6500P Vs 6300P - Major Feature Differences

Design wise, both are very different. 6500P has a larger and sophisticated LCD display, whereas 6300P has a lot more simpler one.

Built-in Stitches 

This is where the decision is made most of the time. Janome 6500P has the upper hand here, with 135 built-in stitches whereas 6300P has only 66 built-in stitches. What this means is that, 6500P will suit those who love to experiment, as there are more stitch options to choose from.

Buttonhole Stitches 

Janome 6500P wins here as well. 6500P has 7 one-step buttonhole styles to choose from. Janome 6300P on the other hand has only 4 one-step buttonholes.

Dimensions and Weight

There is a very minor difference in dimensions (6500P : W 19.5" x H 11.8" x D 8.6" and 6300P : W 19.4" x H 11.8" x D 8.6"). However the available work space is essentially the same on both 6500P and 6300P. As far as machine weights are concerned, interestingly Janome 6300P is 3.1 lbs heavier than 6500P. 

These are the differences in features. The other small difference is in the standard accessories you will get with each machine. With Janome 6500P you will get a rolled hem foot which you won't get with 6300P. With Janome 6300P you will get a zipper foot which you won't get with 6500P. Another thing is that, you will get a hardcover with 6500P. 6300P on the other hand comes with only a dust cover. 

Editor comment

Even though Janome 6500P and 6300P differ in features, they are evenly matched in performance. There is very little to choose between them. The stitch quality of both are absolutely high class, to say the least. The users of these two machines always talked about how user friendly they are. You can figure out the controls very easily. The large work space of 9″ x 5″ lets you work with large projects with ease. Both are very quiet as well. Performance wise, both Janome 6500P and 6300P are neck on neck. So it mainly comes down to your budget and the number of built-in stitches you want.
