    I was just at the State Fair and was quoted $1,500. This is a pretty good price for it, isn't it? Would be interested in comments about this machine too. My sister pointed out that there is no free arm, so she wouldn't be able to hem pants cuffs on it (her primary sewing task at home). It looked great for quilting, though. I already have a Bernina 1230 so I don't actually *need* a 6600; I just *want* a 6600.

    The reason I asked about the syllables is because I always thought there were 2 syllables in Janome and that it rhymed with Nome, Alaska. The saleswoman pronounced it as 3 syllables (Jah-no-me).

    Three. From the Janome website: "In Japanese, the word Janome (pronounced Ja-NO-me) means "eye of the snake." The company earned the name in the 1920s when founder Yosaku Ose, a pioneer in Japanese sewing manufacturing, began to use a round metal bobbin system instead of the traditional long shuttle. The Japanese thought the new round bobbin looked like a snake's eye, and from the innovative design, a name was born."
    All you need to remember is 'Janome is to love me' 8)

    3 syllables!!
    No free arm is one of the factors in my not getting one, I love all the thread cutters though. I also prefer a slide in bobbin as opposed to a drop in. I can still change the bobbin fairly easy with a quilt still on top.

    I guess English doesn't have a word for the eye of a snake! Languages are sure fun to learn about.

    Sigh. Okay, now I have to train my brain to think in 3 syllables when I see Janome! I love information like the "Eye of the Snake"; the imagery is great.

    Loved so many things about that 6600. I just don't see it in the budget for us this year. Am still thinking about it, though......

    I have an older 3 syllable machine! With a free arm, that I don't use with quilting, but do use when I sew doll clothing!
    Love all the information I get on this board! :lol:
