    I was just wondering if anyone has a ballpark figure of what a 1 yr old 6600 would sell for. I would love to have the 11000 so that I could quilt and embroidery but not sure I can justify the cost of both machines with the way the economy is

    Thanks

    I bought a used one in November. I honestly don't remember how old it was, how many hours or stitches or whatever was used to count, but pretty sure it was more than 1 year old. Bought it from the dealer as it was a trade in for an upgrade to a 7700. The dealer had cleaned it and given it the once over, came with all the feet plus a few extra's. I say more than 1 year old because the enamel on the bed in front of the needle was dulled and had some scratches. Husband fixed that with UHMW tape (ultra high molecular weight) which is super slick - slicker than the enamel ever was.

    I paid $700.

    I almost bought a used one from a dealer that was totally reserviced for $700.00. He also gave a 1 year warranty plus the rest of the original warranty.

    i own one of each and i'm very glad i made the choice to buy both (although i didn't buy them at the same time. :lol: )

    both are a joy to work on when piecing. in fact, i bought my 6600p because piecing on the 11000 was such bliss, i couldn't bear to set that task aside to use the 11000's embroidery feature.

    i much prefer the 6600p for straight-line and soft curve quilting. i also like it better for those times i'm brave enough to practice my freemotion.

    when i want to add fancy shmancy quilting motifs, the 11000 is my first choice. obviously, it's also the one i pull out when i want to do machine embroidery - including letters and words.

    on days when i'm particularly ambitious i can have both out. the 11000 embroiders/quilts while i'm also using the 6600 for piecing/quilting.
