Janome 7325 vs 7330 Comparison In Detail


Janome 7325 and Janome 7330 are two beginner computerized sewing machines. 7330 is very popular among sewers. Janome 7325 is a slightly lesser version of 7330 (you can easily make that out from the model number). Let us see which machine offers more value for your hard earned money.

Janome 7325 vs 7330 – Major Feature Differences

Janome 7325 being the lesser version, is bound to have less features in comparison with 7330. The question is, can you live with what 7325 lacks in features? Let's find out. First of all, let us see what are the major differences between the two.

Built-in Stitches 

This is where the major difference is. Janome 7325 comes with 25 built-in stitches including a 1-step buttonhole. Janome 7330 on the other hand comes with 30 built-in stitches which also includes 6 1-step buttonholes. So if you intend to make a lot of buttonholes, 7330 is the way to go.

LCD Screen 

The striking difference between Janome 7325 and Janome 7330 is the LCD screen. Janome 7330 has an LCD screen for stitch selection. Stitch selection and settings adjustments are done by push buttons (it is not a touch screen). The LCD display is not sophisticated, it is just a basic one. Janome 7325 doesn't have an LCD screen, instead stitches are selected by turning a dial (much like mechanical sewing machines). Stitch width and length are also adjusted using dials. Even though LCD screen is not something important, you have to take one thing into consideration. Janome 7330 comes with a sewing start/stop button which lets you sew without using the foot pedal. Janome 7325 has only foot pedal operation.

Locking Stitch Function 

Janome 7330 comes with a locking stitch button with which you can lock the stitch at the beginning and end of the seam. You just need to press the button. Even though you can do this using the reverse sewing button, an option specifically for locking stitches makes things a lot easier. Unfortunately Janome 7325 misses out on this feature.

Reverse Sewing 

Janome 7325 has an oversized reverse sewing lever, which is easy to engage. Janome 7330 on the other hand has a button for reverse sewing, which is not the easiest to locate. But it is not a huge thing to be honest.

Feed 

The feed system of Janome 7330 is a bit better than that of 7325. 7330 has Janome's exclusive 'Superior Feed System' with 7-piece feed dog. Janome 7325 comes with a normal 5-piece feed dog. We felt Janome 7330 was slightly better in smooth fabric feeding.

Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure

Janome 7325 comes with the luxury of adjustable presser foot pressure. Janome 7330 on the other hand comes with automatic presser foot pressure. If you ask us which one is better, we always loved an option to tweak the settings to fine tune the stitch quality.

Editor comment

In terms of performance, there is little difference between them. Of course the extra features of Janome 7330 makes things a little bit easier for you. Both machines are extremely good at sewing multiple layers of denim and other heavy duty fabrics. The stitch quality is very good for both. Both are sturdy machines which can perform with the same consistency for long hours. The build quality is also excellent.
