I had responded to a post several weeks ago regarding how many machines you had. I've had my Brother SQ9000 for about 9 months now and I love it. Then about 3 weeks ago I purchased a Janome 8050. I had responded in the post that between those two, the Brother was my favorite. I have now changed my mind. I FMQ'd on my Janome for the first time, and it was wonderful. It did soooo much better than the Brother, even though the Brother does do a good job, but the Janome is so much smoother, and the stitches look much better.
