Hi all, I currently have a very basic Janome 525 sewist machine and also a Janome 6260 qc (think that is the number - I am upstairs and the machine is downstairs - being lazy!). I am considering buying a machine that has the above features, preferably a Janome as my machines do all that I currently need. I take the 525 to class each week. I would like to expand my horizons and have researched online but value the experiences of people who actually use these machines, and know more about them than the local outlets over here. Have checked the exchange rate and hope to be able to go up to about 1000 dollars, which is about 700 pounds in sterling. Am still a novice at quilting and not sure that I should spend this amount of money, but may never get another chance to do so.
What machines have you got and what is your experience of them, especially the monogram feature.
