    Old machine broke, bought new machine

    So I decided the other day that I may as well clean since my machine died...and the next day I went to the sewing machine store. All I wanted was a machine with a 9" throat that also did a zig zag stitch. I realize that it would come with more stitches than just the zig zag, but those were my two main desires. My old machine was the Singer Confidence Quilter, a lower end machine, but still the most expensive ($300) machine I had purchased to date.

    So anyway, I go into the store and start talking about the Janome 6300. They would have to order it, which was fine I guess, but I asked if there was a model that I could play with and check out first. Sure, we have this Janome Memory Craft 8200QC here, I can show you on this what the 6300 is capable of. Gee, thanks, show me the upgrade at almost twice the price, with an 11" throat....and I really must say, she sews like a dream and looks GREAT in my sewing room!!!!! Yes, I came home that day with the 8200 along with an extension table that I traded my old machine for. Monday I will go and give them the rest of the accessories for the old machine and schedule my training class for the 8200.

    I only wish we weren't going to a football party this afternoon after church so I could stay home and play with her! Happy days for me!

    Oh, her name is Linda for now. Long story not worth repeating in polite company.
    She looks for wool and flax And works with her hands in delight.

    I think you will love your Janome. I don't have the 8200QC but Janome is a good machine.

    I'll bet I figured out why you called her Linda, realizing you're from TX! Ha ha!

    Good for you. I did something similar when I went to the sewing machine shop to buy a Brother emb/sewing machine. I intended to buy one specific machine, but came home with the upgraded model. I'm very glad I did!
