    I have the Janome 6600 and love it. It is expensive but I think it is well worth it. My DH bought it for me and the Horn table that powers the m
    achine down into it. I know, he spoils me, but then again I am worth it.

    It is three syllables. I have a Jonome and love it. Despite it not having a free arm, all the other stuff makes up for that. Buy a cheaper model if you want a freearm for sewing, but I love my 6600 for quilting. Take lessons if you can. Many shortcuts they can tell you about. Love all teh features especially the walking foot. Also, I can minimize the stitch length to something like 27 if I choose. The price is about what they are selling for now. I got mine for $1200 on sale. DH helped pay it off.
    He is so good to me. Even came home tonight from his Dr's in Beckley, and he went to Ollies a discount store, and brought me a quilting book. Love him!

    I have had a 6600 for 2 years - they are double those prices in France but I wanted one so badly. I wanted it particularly for quilting and I absolutely love it. Takes any thread without tension adjustment fiddling, quilts beautifully, I never have any wrinkles. I also have all the additional Accufeed feet and use them all. This year I got the Janome table specifically built for it and that made it even better.
    You can get lots of info, technical stuff and comments on it on the Yahoo Janome 6600/6500 forum:

    I was just at the state fair (MN) and it was the same price. I'm yearning for too, but but it isn't in the budget right now. I hate when that happens.....
    I've read some reviews that were favorable and none that were negative but I've only read a few.

    I bought a 6600 last year for $1500. It is a great machine! I wouldn't trade it for the world. I'm saving up now for a 350 embroidery machine.

    I'm hoping to get one for Christmas. Have the brochure on the fridge where DH is sure to see it.

    the sales person was correct and they use to be the New Home models.
    Janome bought them out awhile back. I have the 7000, 8000 and the 10001. Love them all. no complaints with any of them.

    Interesting.....I had never heard the 2-syllable version.

    That's a great price. Go for it!! Don't worry about giving up the free arm; keep your old machine for that. What you give up in free arm you will gain in extra space between the machine head and bed for shoving your quilt into, and with the accufeed foot you will be inspired to machine quilt.

    I have a 6600 and it sews better than I do. My old free-arm machine is also a Janome and it has a sweet sound. The schools here used Janomes because they were so durable and easy to use which says something about them as well.

    I'd like an embroidery machine, too. Don't plan on doing anything really big with it. Would just like to be able to do little pictures and designs on bibs or quilt squares. Anyone have any recommendations?

    2-syllable, 3-syllable ----what's the difference? In a few years we'll all be calling it a "thingy" cuz we can't remember the name, but know what it is. :lol:

    That is a great users group for people with 6500 or 6600. There is a lot of great information. I have a 6500. Love it.
