For sale: Two Janome MB4 4 needle embroidery machines
We are www.posylane.com
and we have three Janome MB4 embroidery machines. They are 1, 2, and 3 years old (we don't know which are which now) and we use them for our embroidery business. They are what we used to get our business going and are a great machine for a great price. We purchased all three from The Sewing Room in Frisco and Jim regularly maintained them.
Talk to a tech. The MB4 is a great machine because there is little to go wrong with it. About the worst thing you can do is hit the hoop with a needle (it happens to the best of us) and a $50 part could break. I stress could because we have never broken anything on any of ours. About the only other thing that could ever go wrong is the motor dying, sub $200 part should it ever be needed. These machines have a very long service life.
They are also very easy to use. We use Monogram Wizard to build the names on a computer (you get Monogram Wizard too!), save them to a USB dongle, and plug the dongle in the MB4. Load the design a place it in the hoop field. It is very easy to use.
Bottom line - we really love ours but business is growing and we don't have space for more embroidery machines, so we are upgrading to Melco XTS embroidery machines that stitch faster. And we are keeping one of the MB4's because it is portable so only two are for sale.
All three machines are in great shape - You pick which one(s) you want, we are happy to keep any of them.
Here is what you get:
Generally I think we have all the manuals and such that they came with
Each of the three hoops that machine comes with
An extra of the M2 (biggest hoop) a $170 value
A fast frame 7 in 1 base for the machine. The base is worth ~$105
We will set you up with Monogram Wizard for creating names/monograms/simple designs.
We will have a Janome tech clean and do any ajustments needed.
We are a local business - we can show you how to use it and support you in getting going.
We would prefer to sell to a local person.
if you are interested.
