Does anyone know what the throat space is on the Janome 11000? I think my husband is willing to upgrade my 6600 which has about 9 inch throat. We're seriously looking at the Bernine 440 QEE but the throat is actually smaller. So we're thinking about the Janome 11000 or Horizon. I want to be able to both quilt and embroider on it and I don't believe the Horizon quilts which rules it out.
Also, any price estimates for the 11000? I called on the Babylock Ellisimo and was floored when she said $9000! I would love the Bernina 830 but my husband said he wasn't spending $10k on a sewing machine! :)
