The Janome Skyline Series

Janome is known for making easy-to-afford machines that last. Pink Castle Fabrics is dedicated to sell our customers only the best, and we feel that Janome is one of the best!

The Skyline Series is certainly no different! All of the Skyline Series are great machines for everyday use, no matter if you're sewing garments, home decor, or quilting.

All four models have the same body, so they are all the same weight, have the same amount of work space, and one-step needle plate conversions.

The Janome Skyline S3 Features:

  • 120 Stitches
    • 7 of which are bottonholes!
  • 8.25 inches of throat space
  • One-hand Needle Threader
