    Janomes?

    I'm looking into,a new sewing machine & I'm leaning toward a janome but not sure where to start. I do not want embroidery on the machine though I kinda like the memory crafts but again not sure which one would be best I was hoping I could get some opinions thx!

    I've been terrifically happy with the MC6600 for 8 years now, and never a trip to the repair or maintenance shop.

    I've had my Janome for about 10 years now and it runs like a champ. I have never needed a repair and she only goes to the shop for routine maintenance. I love her and she does anything I ask her to. She's not fussy about thread either.

    I love my Janome 1600P. Straight stitch only. 9" throat.

    I've got the TXL 607 and love it. The auto thread cutter has paid for itself with amount of thread I've saved on, lol. I love the fact that I don't have to use the pedal and can just set the speed, particularly for FMQ. It also has an alphabet and quite a few decorative stitches.
    Lang may yer lum reek.

    I have the 7700 and what has made it worth it for me is the thoat size. I can do my own FMQ'ing. it has paid for its self.

    I have the Janome 6500 and it has been the most expensive machine that I have ever bought and the one that I have not liked! I'm sure that I got the one made at ten to five just before a long weekend. It's had a lot of problems and so have I. I definitely have had a love/hate relationship with this machine. There are some features that I really like, needle up-down, needle threader and thread cutter. I haven't liked the feed dogs (set in at an angle and have never fed fabric in correctly), bobbin case that rattles and bangs unless you oil the oil wick under it, a machine that veers off at any seam junction, dislikes thicker fabric and growls and sometimes jams or knots up for no particular reason and all of these problems were caused by "operator error" according to my dealer. I never want another Janome and am presently looking at the Juki Exceed 600 and the Juki TL2010Q. I could buy both of these machines for what I paid for my Janome 6500. I really think that there are no perfect machines out there. It's just a matter of finding (hard to do) the best one for you and a dealer that is willing and able to work with you to resolve any problems.

    I have had my Janome 10001 since about 2004. never repaired just cleaning routinely. Love all the things it can do, and have not had time to use it all the way. Would not give it up for any other.

    I have the HT2008. It's a basic machine but really sturdy and dependable for the past 4 years. The currrent equivilent is the DC2012. If I were to buy another Janome to replace this one, I'd go with one of the memory craft ones with a 9" throat as they do so much more. But for a workhorse, I like mine just fine.
