    I am looking at the Janome machines - the Magnolia 7330 and the 8077. These machines are almost identical - can anyone tell me what the difference is in them - besides the price?
    Thanks for all your advice.

    Check out the new Janome DC1050 I think it is. Price is about $400 and has lots and lots of stitches.Just purchased one for a friend. Light weight, easy to use. I have a bigger Janome (6600 & 11000 Memory Craft) but loved this little machine and will probably pick up one for myself in the future to travel with.

    Tried looking at the Janome website and the 8077 is not listed. After research, it looks like the 8077 is a model sold at stores like Hancock's but not through the Janome dealers, probably some kind of contractual thing. Probably a good machine but do you have a Janome dealer close by that you could visit and see what they have to offer. The "DC" line of machines are wonderful.

    After buying my first Janome I definitely learned the value of purchasing from a Janome dealer. Makes all the difference in the world for teaching, support, & questions. Love my dealer and all their personnel - great people to work with. Hope you have the same experience.

    The DC 1050 looks very much like the other two - maybe less bells and whistles. My local machine dealer does not carry the 8077 but does carry the 1050. I'll have to check it out. What I want is a machine that will be good for FM quilting in addition to my regular wardrobe sewing. Thanks everyone for your input. Y'all are great!
