    Yes, I've had mine for a couple of months and love it. She's big, but sews and handles beautifully.
    Comes with a ton of accessories, feet, extension table etc.
    My only changes I'd make are: move the knee lift for the pressor foot closer to the needle (it's too far to the right)
    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.

    Go into search and type in Horizon and you'll get bunches of threads that talk about it.

    You can also look at reviews on it, written by people who own one, on the following website

    I have one too. So far I think it's been great and I haven't had any problems with it.

    I have one and love it- this is even after my scare last week when the circuit board malfunctioned- it was immediately replaced by my dealer, and works perfectly now.

    I love all the features, especially the 11" to the right of the needle- I finally feel like I can do some FMQ that I am happy with. This machine replaced my 24 y/o Bernina and I am still amazed at all the features, makes quilting soooo much easier.

    Thank you to everyone who replied to my question on Horizon and for the welcome. I love this site and enjoy reading about everyones quilts. I specially love the tutorials - when will I ever have time to try them all!!
    I have a new Horizon and have been having bother with the needle plate convertor - must be me, seems no one else has this problem - I will stick with it (I'll have too when you consider the cost!) Otherwise I agree it is a super machine.

    I found this page very helpfulin explaining the needle plate convertor- clearer instructions than I found in the manual:
    http://janomespecials.com/newmc/hor-lessons.htmlScroll down to number 7 on the page. But if your problem is more serious, I would check with your dealer about it.

    There is also a Janome 7700 Yahoo group that has lots of info.

    The needleplate converter on the Horizon had some problems at the beginning. Something with the spring. I would ask the deal if your machine was one of the ones that was issued a replacement needleplate converter.

    My LQS's demo machine had that issue and they were given by Janome a free redesigned needleplate.

    If your question is just about the converter itself and how and when to hit the button depending on where the bobbin thread is, I've had the same issue, it's operator error. LOL. I just keep hitting the button until it clicks into place.
