Hi All, Can anyone that owns the Janome DC1050 tell me how much it weighs? I am seeing conflicting information on the internet, some sites say 12lbs, 16lbs and even 18lbs. I was originally looking at the Jem 720, but when I saw the DC1050 goes 800+ stitches per minute I was sold BUT only if its a 12 pounder like it think it may be!! Thanks SO much in advance for help!! Mechelle

I'm sure it's pretty light in weight. I'd go for that over the 720 anyway as it has the Superior Feed System. I wonder if it vibrates at that high speed.

I found out some additional info - others might be interested! It seems it does weigh 12 pounds so I will be ordering it soon. Here is the site I found that gave a review, and lots of comments from people:
http://www.erinsayssew.com/janome-dc1050-sewing-machine-review/
It also gives information (other machines too) for beginners buying a first maching, that doesn't apply in my case but might help someone! thanks!

It is most definitely about 12 pounds and a nice machine. It is the same machine as the Janome 8050, only different cosmetically. The shank is different than other Janomes but top loading feet fit. I changed the shank on my 8050, and here is the thread in which you can read a lot of info that will also apply to your machine. Have fun!

I ordered from Sew Vac Direct in TX - found a 10% off coupon, so the total w/ a pack of bobbins was $274.50 - they had a bonus kit that has 2 extra feet and some needles. I'm excited to have a light weight machine for classes and sew-ins - no more lugging the expensive heavy machines! I'll post a review once I get the machine and give it a good test!

Ok - got my machine last week, did a review today. Its a nice little machine - my back will LOVE taking to classes! I did have to get the metal snap on shank that Mufffet talked about on her blog, Sew Vac Direct sent it to me free of charge - the 1/4" foot would not sit flat on the feed dogs with the plastic shank that came with the machine.

And even if one has to buy that shank its about 7 dollars - no big deal. I like these machines, excellent value for the money. :)
