I wonder what the sewing machine dealer thought when my friends and I bought six Jenome Jems together in September 2000. We cleaned out his inventory that day. This little machine is compact and light weight. It is easy to pack up and carry to retreats. For those reasons, I plan to keep the Jem for a long time. It makes a nice second machine if I don’t want to change the foot or thread on the Janome 6600.
