Janome 7330 Review In Detail

Janome 7330 will suit those who have quality as their top priority. Feature wise, we felt it could do with more built-in stitches. Other than that, it is a champion.

Editor rating

Janome 7330 Magnolia is a decor computerized sewing machine. The number of stitches and the features suggest that this one is a beginners sewing machine. This sewing machine is built on a durable heavy duty metal frame. It weighs around 18.2 lbs. It comes with 30 built-in stitches which include 6 1-step buttonholes.

One good feature of Janome 7330 Magnolia is the memorized needle up/down. The machine will remember the position of the needle when you stopped sewing last time and it will set the needle in that position (really cool). It also has reverse and locking stitch functionality. You can control the sewing speed by moving the speed control slider, which means you don't always need your foot pedal to sew efficiently. The easy to read LED screen shows all the controls.

Janome 7330 Magnolia uses SFS (Superior Feed System) which does a fine job. The stitch width on this machine can be adjusted from 0-7mm and stitch length from 0-5mm. There is a built-in automatic needle threader and thread cutter on this sewing machine. Presser feet are snap-on. 7330 has a drop-in bobbin system.

Ease of Use

Janome 7330 Magnolia is a quiet machine. It is a sturdy machine and you pay the price for its quality. You can get cheaper machines with the same features but you may not get the build quality of this sewing machine. Setting up this sewing machine is extremely easy, you can get the machine running out of the box in 15 min. The instruction manual is really helpful and easy to read. Threading was very easy, you just need to follow the instructions.

For free arm sewing, you can remove the storage compartment. Memorized needle up/down feature is a blessing for quilters. It does a fine job with multiple layers of denim. We have tested it with 8 layers of denim and it punched through quite smoothly. It does an equally good job with light fabrics. The stitches are smooth and consistent on Janome 7330 Magnolia.


The number of built-in stitches could be more. At least 50 built-in stitches would have been great, never mind.

No font for basic monogramming.

In simple words, you are paying the price for its quality not for its features. Normally when you are looking for a sewing machine, you will have two factors in mind, price and quality. Some have price as their priority, some others have quality and some have both quality and price as top priority. Janome 7330 Magnolia is for those people who have quality as their top priority. If you are not worried about spending some extra dollars for a quality sewing machine, try this one. You won't feel disappointed.
