Janome 8050 Vs 8077 Comparison

Janome 8050 Vs 8077 Comparison In Detail

Janome 8050 and 8077 are computerized sewing machines, but there is a bit of feature difference between the two. You can call 8077 a beginners machine, whereas 8050 is slightly more advanced in terms of built-in stitches. 8050 still comes under beginners category though.

Janome 8050 Vs 8077 - Major Feature Differences

Design wise, both machines are different. The placement of LCD screen and button controls are different on both. First let us have a look at areas where Janome 8050 and 8077 differ.

Built-in Stitches 

This is where the decision is made most of the time. Janome 8050 sweeps away all the points here. Janome 8050 has 50 built-in stitches including 3 one-step buttonholes whereas 8077 has only 30 built-in stitches which also include 6 one-step buttonholes. So for those who are looking for some variety in stitches, 8050 is the way to go. However 8077 has 3 additional buttonhole stitches, consider that point if buttonhole stitching is your priority.

LCD Screen Size 

Though this doesn't make a difference in functionality, 8050 still boasts of a larger LCD screen.


Janome 8077 boasts of Janome's premium SFS (Superior Feed System), which is slightly better in feeding fabrics than that of the 5-piece system that comes with 8050.

Editor comment

Performance wise, there is little to choose between them. Both machines are extremely quiet while operating. The stitch quality on thick and thin fabrics is pretty much the same. In fact the stitch quality on these two machines are excellent. They can easily sew through multiple layers of denim. As far as performance is concerned, both machines are neck on neck.

One more point worth mentioning here is that, there is a newer version of Janome 8050 available in US. The model we are talking about is the Janome DC1050.
