A Jewel of a Sewing Machine!
The Janome 760 is a 3/4-size sewing machine in the Janome Jem line that doesn’t sacrifice power for portability.
This Janome Jem Platinum is the David machine that sews like Goliath.
The modest weight and dimensions of the Janome Jem Platinum 760 will soon have you wondering how you survived without taking your sewing machine with you everywhere you go.
The Janome Platinum 760 travels to sewing classes or quilting parties and everywhere you want to sew–without sacrificing the quality of your sewing.
This Janome Jem gives you big portability and huge functionality in one small package.
Janome Jem Platinum Features
For a little machine, this sewing machine sews big.
Most tote-around machines give you ten, twelve, or twenty stitches, but this Janome Jem gives you 60 stitches, computerized functions, and all the can’t-live-without luxuries you’d expect from a larger, less portable machine:
- 60 stitches
- 5 different one-step buttonholes
- Computerized functions
- Needle up/down position
- One-touch sew
- Embroidery functions
- Automatic needle-threader
- Drop-in bobbin
The Janome Jem Platinum 760 weighs only 12 pounds, making it ideal for carrying to classes or sewing parties. It sews solid stitches in spite of its light weight, but without the sheer mass of a larger machine, you’ll want to secure this little Jem, with a no-slip rubber mat or carpet gripper underneath.
Quilters will love the way the Janome Jem 760 sews. Having this many stitch options in a machine that you can easily take to a quilting bee, will make you the envy of the group.
One limitation of this little jem is that it is impractical to topstitch large projects. A small price to pay for a machine that travels everywhere with you!
You can get a lot of quilting done on this little workhorse!

With sewing machines, dealer models and internet models may offer you similar functionality, but they do have significant differences in internal construction. Internet models may offer more accessories, but an internal construction of plastic instead of aluminum. Check for reviews of the specific model you’re interested in.
