I really love working with this machine, but the little (and not so little!) problems are starting to get on my nerves!

    Ok, when I picked up my machine today, they said Janome had a new board, with an additional fuse...so maybe this will go better. You might want to ask your dealer about that. I must say my dealer has been awesome with all of this!

    I am looking for a quilt frame for my Horizon 7700 - if others here have one...please let me know what you are using. Thanks!

    Smile Horizon knee lifter

    and I'd make a hard case to cover it.
    I also use mine on my quilting frame, but had to make a couple of adjustments. "Officially" it isn't made to work on a frame, but she sure does!
    If you have questions, you can private message me.
    There is a screw at the top end of the knee lift lever. You can loosen that screw and move the shaft of the lifter to a position that is right for you, then tighten it.
    Hope that works for you.

    I have had mine for nearly 2 years with no problems and I totally love the machine and what it will do! But I would be very, very disappointed if I was dealing with the problems some of you have had. I hope you get it fixed and you have dealers who stand behind you.

    I love my machine also...the problems I had in the past were mostly me...once I started using different thread my problems went away....I am going to go look and hopefully pick up a frame tomorrow. sounds like the 7700 will fit on the quilting frame. Fingers crossed.
