Meet the Skyline range, Janome’s new middle-range machines with more space and more functionality for all-rounder sewists who love to sew big and little things. The Janome Skyline S9 is the top-of-the-Skline-range machine, combining lots of excellent sewing features with lots of excellent embroidery features. The sewing functionality of the machine includes a nice selection of 300 stitches, a good-sized sewing space of just over 8 inches, and a smooth 1000 stitches per minute sewing speed, and are accompanied by some very high-end features including 9mm stitch width, automatic pivot function (you stop sewing, the machine lifts the presser foot up for you and automatically lowers it again when you continue), and easy change needle plate
Switch to embroidery mode, and there are some very respectable features on the S9, including an embroidery area of 170mm x 200mm (6.7 inches by 7.9″) and a big colour screen, but by far the most impressive embroidery feature on the S9 is the WiFi design transfer, which can be used in conjuction with 5 different embroidery apps. You can even use an app to adjust your design position in the hoop using a photo of your hoop with your fabric in it! Amazing! The Skyline S9’s embroidery space is a little small for lovers of big machine embroidery projects, but the availability of WiFi at this price range certainly makes up for that.
