    I have decided that I NEED a Janome Horizon....thanks to everyone who has posted here with their views.

    I can get the machine near my home for $2700 - and no sales tax.

    I am currently in Nebraska and a shop is having a Christmas sale that includes the Horizon, the table, the case and $60 in thread for $2800.

    I think this is a good deal. How about you?

    I hadn't heard of this machine & had to go research it some.
    It looks good. Computerized, right?
    Not sure I'd pay $2700 for a sewing machine with the economy tanking like it is but have fun with it!

    I would not buy the machine because it's a few dollars cheaper. Buying from a dealer near you for support and classes is the way to go. You may be able to negotiate a bit with your local dealer. And for warranty service etc. you really ought to buy local. Just my two cents.

    It's a much better deal than the one I can get in Canada. I was quoted $3200 including the table but no thread. I like this machine but need to stitch on it for awhile before I decide to buy it. I have heard that it doesn't like multiple layers or thick seams and may veer off the stitching line when crossing intersecting seams which isn't good for quilters.

    Price I was quoted today was $2999 which included a rolling travel case and some sort of thread box. I opted for the 6600 which was on sale. Buying locally seems to be advantageous in terms of customer service if needed.

    It is more like $800 less than actual retail. While I agree that purchasing locally would be ideal, I have to drive close to 100 miles to get to a 'local' dealer, so not an ideal situation.

    I agree.
    Whatever you do though, enjoy and be sure to post a pic!! :thumbup:
    Wow, I just read your update- 100 miles?? Ouch!

    PS. I had to chuckle over your NEED in caps. I'm like that with vintage machines, and YES it's because of this board!
    lol

    I checked this one at the Houston show. It was nice, but the man tells me that other than the storage of the extra feet and the light at the needle, oh, and the pop up chart of the stitches they were the same working machine as my Janome 6600. I love mine and I do not think I would trade it in for the Horizon. You made a good choice.

    Umm, at the risk of starting trouble, I got mine last weekend and paid $1999.00. About $2140.00 with tax.

    And it has a two inch bigger throat than the 6600, which doesn't sound like much, but is HUGE!!

    Wow, I paid $2,999 for mine in CT. I traded in my 6600 cause I didn't like it at all. No freearm and the Accufeed on the 6600 always ate my fabric.

    The Horizon is much better especially since they redesigned the 1/4" foot and have shipped it to everybody who registers their machines online at Janome.

    I didn't even get a table with the Horizon. Connecticut sucks.
