    Helpful advise please.

    I have the opportunity to purchase a Janome MC 10000 for approximately $1500. I can find very little about it on the Internet, other than it had a great initial review. The machine is over 10 years old, but has been in storage for the last 5. Does this sound like a good deal?

    Personally, I think that is way too much for such an old machine. I am not familiar with that particular machine, however. You might call a Janome dealer and ask their advice.

    That's my machine too. It has lots of fun stitches. I'm happy with mine, too.

    I've had a 10001 for about 8 years and love it. It's only been in for service, never for repairs. It's a great machine!

    I love my Janome 9000MC but the price they're asking seems too steep, especially since it's been in storage 5 years.

    You could buy a new Janome Horizon for pretty close to that and it has a deep harp for machine quilting

    I have 2 Janomes. My 1st is the 6260 (no longer made) I've had it for 10 years and never a problem. I also have the 7700 my dream machine does all I need it to do and then some. I feel you can't go wrong with a Janome. I have several friends who have had the same experience as me with different Janomes. I suggest you go to a dealer and sit down and play with many different models and see which one feel right to you. The dealers are usually very good at explaining the differences between models. Good luck.

    Go to different dealers, test drive several brands, see which ones you like best. Also, which DEALER you like best. After you purchase you new sewing machine, you will have to bring it to the dealer for yearly checkups. If you buy a machine you love, but, you have to have it serviced at a dealership you can't stand, you have a problem. The after sale customer service is very important. There is a Bernina dealer 50 miles from where I live.The problem is, he is not good at customer service. I go to the Bernina dealer 100 miles from where I live. Why? Because they are so much nicer to deal with than the closer Bernina dealer. There are Bernina customers who live in the city that is 50 miles from me that will not go to that dealer, instead they travel 150 miles to have their Bernina serviced. In fact, the dealer 100 miles from me told be that some of their customers travel across the whole state to come to their store. Having a good dealer is very important. Good Luck!
