    I rec'd a new sewing machine. Janome, Memory Craft 6600P and I also rec'd a Quilt Binder Set - I have not opened either yet since want to read, read, read instructions. My husband also got my a free lesson from the dealer. Has anyone used the Quilt Binder Set??? Does it work??? it sounds to good to be true.

    Congrats on your new toys. They've talked a lot about the new quilt binder set over on Yahoo's 6500 /6600 group. You may want to join . It's a literal treasure trove of info.
    I'm a new owner of a 6600 and I've learned alot there.

    Happy holidays!

    Thank you!
    I hope you like your machine. I really put mine through a workout the last two days and it was great. I've had mine for a few months but haven't done much more than piece with it. I made a few quilted totes and I gotta tell you, the Accufeed was amazing. I was very impressed. If you join the Yahoo group, Brubaker's will give you a 10 or 15% discount code ( can't remember which) from their site. You can use it if anytime you want to buy more feet for it, etc..

    For what it's worth, the only thing I was disappointed in is the crappy vinyl cover. My old Janome has a hardcase . I expected the same with the 6600 --especially since it's a much more expensive machine. Regardless, you'll have to let me know how you like the binding set. I've heard mostly good things about it.

    Happy holidays!

    I was a bit surprise about the cover also you would think with the amount the machine cost they could have done a little better.

    Hmmm. my old kenmore had a binder foot that was similar. Once I got the hang of it I did like it.
