    Saw an announcement from Janome saying there would be exciting news in 60 (with a countdown timer) days. Has anyone heard any rumors about what kind of machine it might be? I'm hoping for a new and improved version of 11000SE.

    They refer to the "journey" so I think it's a successor to the Horizon, either an embroidery-Horizon combo or a quilting machine with an even wider harp. But the hype annoys me, actually.

    I'm not really sure what to think. The Horizon is fairly new. Think the 11000SE is 5 yrs old or maybe even more. I agree with the "mystery hype" of it all. I would prefer to know some basic info about it (including price range) so I can either eliminate the idea or start saving pennies like mad.

    My guess is that it's an embroidery machine. I have a friend who co-owns a quilt shop and I remember she told me that our sewing machine guy wouldn't sell her a new embroidery machine this winter. He told her to just wait a little while.

    I heard at the Cinci Show that they were coming out with a new one that included embroidery so I'm assuming you are correct....it will be a Horizon/Embroidery Combo.

    Oh my! that would be a nice combo. Now we just have to wait and see. I know I love my 6600P.

    I think the new Viking had this kind of build up too. It's supposed to put you in a shopping frenzy, I suppose;> Just guessing here, but the 11000 is due for a newer model. I'm going to put my virtual $ on a new 12000.

    My Janome dealer/repair guy tells me there is a Janome 12000 coming out this fall. But he also said Janome is being pretty tight lipped about it with the dealers until the unveiling. He said it will be a sewing/embroidery machine. I'm guessing it will rival the Babylock Elissimo and the Bernina 830.

    My mom has this sewing machine. I absolutely love it. I have used it for the embroidery on my Packer quilts. I really love the automatic thread cutter when top stitching my quilts.
