Janome MB- 4S Complete Review

Many of you must be wanting to earn some extra bucks every month by using your creative skills. There are many ways to earn from your creative ideas. One of them is starting your own embroidery business,

Starting your own embroidery business at home is one of the best business idea for some good reasons.

To start your own embroidery business at home, first you need a commercial embroidery machine which will fit almost everywhere in your home. You will need a single head embroidery machine which comes under $10000.

If you are a beginner and do not want to spend so much in the beginning then you can buy an embroidery machine for home use and upgrade it later when you gain some experience and some savings also.

Today I am going to review one of the commercial embroidery machine Janome MB- 4S.


Why I Have Chosen Janome MB- 4S

Janome MB- 4S machine is suitable for those who are just starting their home based commercial embroidery business and want a single head embroidery machine with multiple needles and also do not want to spend much.

This machine is from one of the most trusted and popular brand like Janome. This company Janome originated from Japan and it became famous when it started using metal bobbin system instead of using the traditional long shuttle.

Janome was also the first company to develop a computerized sewing machine for home use and also the first to make commercial embroidery machine available to market.

By knowing it all you can say that Janome MB-4S is one of the best commercial embroidery machine for home use.

Moreover I can say this machine is both for home and commercial use. It is more efficient than single needle embroidery machine as it can work 4 times faster because of its 4 thread function. It is also not bulky as other commercial embroidery machines and can easily fit into anywhere in your room.

  1. This is the second review I’ve read where a price is not mentioned other than it’s very expensive….. When people are doing research and trying to figure out which machine to buy, a dollar amount is much more helpful
