    I'm saving right now too. I'll be able to get the new machine sometime between end of December to April. I'm not sure if there is a 'best time to buy', like with cars - but knowing my sense of excellent timing, I'll miss the sewing machine buying 'season'. lol

    I noticed that Janome model has an 11" throat, which is very desirable. The Viking has a 10". Every inch counts when trying to machine quilt!!

    Always so exciting to get a new machine...congrats! The place that you purchased it from should offer free lessons on it's use and care.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    To: "Sew Really"
    I may be confused, but what was your best deal on the MC8900? The dealer I was at today had the Horizon 7700 for $2399, reg. $2999. And was it the "Viking Sapphire 875Q..."floor model" that had a "price of $2400."? I saw the MC8900 today in CA for $4999; would love to know how much better I might be able to negotiate, understanding that cash would be a better offer as far as the dealer goes. Thanks in advance for sharing.

    I am in the market for a new machine. What made you choose the MC8900? I think machines are the hardest thing to shop for. I haven't been to a store, but looking online....is there a place that has all the major brands listed with their features. I don't even know where to begin looking! I don't know if I have a big sewing machine store around here anywhere...as you can tell, I'm just starting the process but I'm overwhelmed!

    What features are must-haves? I really want a stitch regulator, needle threader, thread cutter. What else is a must-have?
