I went and looked at and tried both the Janome Horizon and the Elna Excellence. Cannot decide which one the purchase. Maybe you all can help me make up my mind. The dollar difference between the two is about $300. I really should not be purchasing one but decided to treat myself after 5 years of devastating and very depressing and stressful events. This is now coming to an end and beginning a whole new set of problems so this will be my "Bright Spot". This will definately be my last machine (present one is about 20 years old).
Thank you for your input.
