    I have not been happy with my Janome 7700--lots of annoying glitches, especially with the bobbin. Does anyone have the new Brother Laura Ashley Isadore? It looks and sews like a dream machine. Of course this is a trade in and up (more money). I am very tempted to do this trade. What can you all tell me about the Brother Isadore?

    I'm watching. Heard how good the Janome's are but it sounds like you got a lemon.

    The Isadore is also new, big $$$, and subject to new machine glitches. Why not deal with the problems on your Horizon and get the machine you paid for? Join the Horizon yahoo group, lots of info and support there. List and document the problems with your Horizon, and take it to your dealer. A lot of people have gotten fixes and even replacement machines.

    I got a Brother laura Ashley Innovis 2000. I have really enjoyed it. I had replaced an 35 year old Singer. I looked at others but the money difference, I got the Brother.
