One can find it here:

Was wondering, since all Kenmore's are produced by Janome, what Janome model this Kenmore Elite more closely resembles? The 9000 model? Or the 9500 model?

Since no one has replied I thought I put my two cents in. I owned a Janome 5700, it was down for the count and I bought the Kenmore Elite a little over a year ago. I'm not sure where it stands but I'm guessing it's comparable to the Janome 9500 or 10000 model.

The one way to check that is to compare the features on both. Here is the Janome web page for the 10000. Perhaps that will give you something to go on.

The one big difference is the Elite only has a 4 x 4 embroidery area and the 10000 is bigger. I guess it depends on your needs.

Janome 10000

P.S. By the way. I can hardly believe how the prices of the Elite have gone down over a 12-18 months period. this sounds like a good deal.

Thank you very much for your response Mary. Indeed this is the reason why I was inquirying about this particular machine.

Now, primarily I need a quilting machine that can handle drapes too. Embrodery is a nice to have bonus. Accordig to the reviews, the 10000 seems like a good sturdy machine, capable of handling thick Denim layers. The 9000/9500 on the other hand, from the reviews, seems to be less successfull in handling this task.

Of course I like Kenmore's pricing. I was wondering however whether this machine can properly handle all of my requirements.

Hello dana_2

There is a review on the Elite 19005 on PR, although there isn't much detail, except that the reviewer stated it works with clear nylon in the bobbin. At this time, the review is #98 in Kenmore Reviews.

I have made draperies, etc. and made myself some pants out of denim; however, if you are talking about thick layers of denim for many projects then I have another suggestion.

They will let you "test ride" this machine. Mostly they want to show you the embroidery part. But, try bringing a few layers of denim with you and a needle that handles denim and see if they will let you try that out. That should give you some indication.

If that doesn't work for you then perhaps you want an industrial machine. It's all according to what you plan on using it for.

When speaking of the Elite model it is best to also give the Elite's model number 19005 because there are more than one Elite. My Kenmore is the Elite 19365 and it is not an embroidery model. I have no idea why it is called Elite being just a computerized machine with many stitches but according to Sears even in the major appliance dept. an Elite model is considered a model that has a feature not found on other models.
