    Last Christmas I bought myself a Janome Memory Craft 6600 after considerable shopping. This machine can sew better than I can! I love it for these reasons:
    - it has the largest available space between the needle/machine (what IS that space called???)
    - it has a moveable walking foot
    - it has a locking stitch for either beginning or ending sewing
    - it will cut thread at the needle
    - it has a needle threader
    - it is smooth and quiet
    - it's extremely easy to use (my 10-year old granddaughter uses it)
    - there is a speed regulator
    - needle up/down option
    As you can see, I could go on and on....
    I looked at the Pfaff, too, as my quilting friend recommended it but the Janome came out ahead for me.
    They go on sale once a year - worth watching for.

    I have a Pfaff 2056 and I love it. The needle up or down has 3 heights (low, med, high). The throat is plenty big I have free motioned one king size and a couple queen size quilts no problem. The walking foot is built in but can be disengaged. I do a fair amount of blanket like top stitching on applique`, does a great job.
    My daughter has a Memory Craft 6600 by Janome, she likes it a lot. I'm not sure what a moveable walking foot is though.

    I have always wanted a Pfaff. It has the features I would want like lots of decorative stitches as well as being well suited for quilting. I know Loretta has one and loves it. I have a Bernina. Its good but I would love more embroidery stitches and the Pfaff has a slot for a memory card. Hooking the machine up to the computer is not an option as they are in two different rooms. That was one reason I have always wanted a Pfaff.

    Thanks for all the input as I was using my featherweight in class today I noticed a friend of mine in the class was using a very quiet machine compared to mine and it was a pfaff...the teacher said she had used a brother for a very long time and had just broke down and bought a Pfaff this past year and it was worth it....I went online like I said before and each one has so much I'm not sure what I wud use and what I would'nt use so the choice it hard...I plan to go to a my quilt shop and study them all the quilt shop I go to the owner is a dealer so I can check out all she has....this will be a very difficult decision I can tell....Loretta I remember in another thread how much you spoke of your Pfaff and how smart it is and all the features it has I really am going to see if I can check that one out Thanks again....

    hey good for you, I have a Janome 6600 too and I'm equally in love with it for all the reasons you stated.

    I have a 23 year old Janome Memory Craft 7000, I retired it this year. I looked at the Janome 6600P, but I decided to go with Pfaff. I got the Pfaff Performance 2056 and I love it. The IDT feature is awesome not only for quilting, but for piecing as well. :)
