    You got a great deal! Check out prices on ebay if you still feel shaky about it. You will love your Janome!

    Yes you did get a good price. I got mine new in March and absolutely LOVE it. Its a very well built machine. All steel ball bearings, etc. Will last forever!!! Not like some of the more expensive machines that have plastic gears and will break or wear out on you. Don't feel guilty at all enjoy your new baby!!

    I think you got a very good deal. I bought mine new last year, and paid waaaay more than you did. You will love the machine. And don't feel guilty about what you paid. She'll treat you very nice!

    My friend paid almost $3,000.00 for a 6600. But of course, she got a free table. ha ha.
    So I would say you got a fantastic deal.

    You got a steal. That machine new is around $1800.00.
    Don't know about the warranty part. I thought Janome warranted their machines (yes, even used) the same. Guess you will have to check that out. Make sure you take it in to them for any problems before the 6 months is up. Use that machine like nobody's business between now and then. Use everything on it and don't be afraid to try all the feet and stitches. Six months will go by fast and you won't want to miss out. Then, if you don't like it, you will still be able to get your money back when you sell it.



    As far as the Janome that is chipping, button losing design paint, etc.
    My quilting teacher has had hers for about 6 years. She has sewn over 50 - 75 quilts on it, fabric bowls, and a gazillion other things. Still looks new. No chips, no lost button design, nadda. I have had mine for about three to four years now (I lost count), and still looks new. We both treat our machines like babies, are not rough on them, do not wear lotions or eat greasy, sticky foods around them. I am wondering if you wear a lotion that is robbing the button of its design. Anyway, should have held up much better than what you describe.

    The dealer told me that even the new machines only have a 12 month warranty, so I am pleased they gave me 6 months. Normally, on their used machines, they only give 3 months, but since this is more high-end they give 6 months. And yes, I will get lessons whenever I can find the time to go. (I live about 45 miles away). Thanks for everyone's input. Think I will go play!!

    I bought my Janome 6600P five years ago for $1699 ON SALE, so I'd say you got an excellent deal! You'll LOVE it - congrats!
