Quick Flip-Up Stitch Chart
Located at the top of the machine is a convenient flip-up stitch panel that shows you all of the Built-In Stitches at a glance.

Lifting the top also exposes the bobbin winder, the thread spool, thread tension and adjustable presser foot pressure dial.
Handy Function Buttons
The Handy Function Button Panel is extremely easy to use and provides the user with variety of functions. The Thread Cutter Button will cut the the top thread and bobbin thread with the touch of a button. The Reverse Button allows your machine to sew in reverse to reinforce stitching. The Lock Stitch Button finishes the stitch you are on so you do not finish with half a pattern and the Needle Up/Down brings your needle either up or down with the touch of a button. The Start/Stop button allows you to sew without using the foot control and if you press it and hold it down, it will sew very slowly; so you can be as exact as you want.
Forget about bad tension, it’s a thing of the past with auto-tension. Just place your material under the foot and sew; the machine will do the rest for you!
No more fighting with old handwheels that won’t release! Just push the bobbinwinder to the right and the auto-declutch will automatically stop the needle from moving!
Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure
Occasionally bulky layers of fabric require additional pressure from the foot; sheer fabrics need less. The Janome Skyline S5 lets you control precisely how firmly the foot is pressing on your fabric. There are 7 different settings so you can find the right setting for your material and get the same outcome every single time.

The Free Arm Table has an Accessory Bin located at the front. Store your sewing feet, bobbins, needles and more with the machine at all times. Have all accessories on hand without taking up any extra space!
Rigid, Die-Cast Aluminum Body
The Interior Body of the machine is made of a rigid, die-cast aluminum; allowing the machine to be solid as a rock, even when sewing at high speeds!
