Ample Work Area and Visibility
The M7 has the industry’s LARGEST sewing space available on any household use machine. With 13 ½” of work space, a total work area of 17.81”, more than 3” in the needle/needle plate section, and Bright white LED lighting to illuminate your sewing space with shadow-free coverage, your sewing capacity will improve all around. With an added extension table of 26.77” X 15.75”, you’ll have even more work space. As an added bonus the worktable has a built-in drawer, so that you can keep all of your favorite accessories at your fingertips.
Engineered to meet your demands, the M7 provides powerful penetration and needle force, allowing you to easily tackle heavy-weight home dec fabrics like canvas in order to make your decorating dreams come true. The newly redesigned motor also provides the strength, reliability and longevity that you’ve come to expect from a Janome workhorse.
Meeting Your Need for Speed
Another Industry first, the Continental M7 is the fastest drop-in bobbin home sewing machine available. We’ve implemented a DC brushless motor that gives you 1300 stitches per minute, while still giving you the strength and stability you require. Add in the full metal frame and Janome’s high standards for vibration suppression and you can be assured of a pleasurable, smooth and high-performance sewing experience.
Computerized One-Touch Needle Plate
Changing out your needle plate has never been easier! By simply pressing a button on your screen, the needle plate automatically lifts up for easy removal. No need to snap the replacement needle plate in, as the newly designed computerized needle plate system quickly falls into place. And, since the M7 comes with three needle plates, changing them out for the proper application is a breeze.

Optical Bobbin Sensor
For everyone who has sewn a long seam, only to find that your bobbin thread ran out after the first few inches, our advanced Optical Bobbin Monitoring System is for you. Janome technology allows the M7 to constantly watch your bobbin thread supply while sewing, so that you will receive a warning as soon as the bobbin thread gets low, not when it’s too late at the end of your seam.
More Stitches, More Accessories
You’ll find 400 built-in stitches, including 13 different styles of buttonholes (and with Stitch Composer your stitch count is infinite). Eight fonts provide variety for decorative stitch monogramming. And, you can get the most of all of these stitches, because Janome throws in a generous 23 standard feet and accessories with your new machine.

Customize the foot height for your project and preference – set it high for a lofty quilt with lots of batting, or low if you like a little drag on your stitches. You can even memorize your setting to use later.
