  1. awesome machine! great value!

    Posted by Shirlee on Jun 27th 2014

    I've only had my MB4 about a month and haven't gotten to use it as much as I would like, but so far, it is wonderful! Yup, there were some hiccups in the beginning as I became acclimated to it - couldn't find some things and figure out how to change colors/needles, and I still forge to add in stops. All in all, it is easy to learn and use. LOVE that I can change the bobbin without removing the hoop - and the bobbin winder is so awesome, I am now winding my own instead of buying prewounds!

    I love this machine! It is so amazing and packed with so much power! I LOVE IT! Honestly, I was very reluctant to purchase this machine as I ran across it while doing research for a Multi Needle machine on a budget. My heart was set on a couple of other brands but because of my budget, the price range was too much to bear. Then I discovered the JANOME MB-4 and fell in love with it. Now don’t let the size fool ya, which was one of the major selling points for me.

    The affordability, portability made this a sweet find also. And I would be remiss not to mention the outstanding and amazing professional stitch quality. OMG! It will blow your mind. Now I know someone is thinking did I compare it with the more costly machines and the answer is YES! I went to a couple of dealers and did a side by side comparison with two other machines, and the stitch quality was the same if not better than theirs. Let me say both dealers bragged on the performance of the JANOME MB 4 with out knowing which machine I was interested in. Oh, another thing that was the deal breaker was the ease of use, I mean so easy, that when I started using I always thought I forgot to do something before starting a design. LOL.

    It’s also easy to maintain, thread, oil and stitch. I LOVE IT. This machine is truly a professional embroidery machine and has taken my business to another level, and I would not trade it for the world. I love it. One more thing, you can purchase Fast Frames or Durkee hoops and it’s also compatible with some Tajima hoops too. I was using my machine within 30 minutes out of the box, that’s how easy it. You can’t go wrong with purchasing this machine, it’s well built, and yes, you CAN do caps with an optional hat hoop. Thank You Tommy Jones and INTERNETSALESUSA for making the machine available for us small but professional businesses.
