I am new tonite to this site. Can't figure out how to get to the ladies asking about above machine so will try here. Just bought one at Houston festival and just starting to piece my first quilt with it. Loved it at class in Texas, but have just discovered fundamental glitch. Feed dogs are too far apart, which makes piecing with quarter inch foot clumsy, as only left dog is pulling at fabric and wanting to pull it sideways. Tried with triangles 2 nites ago and gave up after 3 tries chewing away at fabric. I pulled out old Pfaff and yes indeed dogs are nearer together and sewed them nicely. Have only just begun, and haven't contacted Janome for help yet so the jury is still out. Oh yeah, tonite sewing strips with qu foot and still only left dog feeding/pulling. Still clumsy even with presser foot tension set to 2 instead of 7.
