Just came home with a new Janome 9700, and it isn't even out of the box yet. I went to the dealer prepared to put out a big wad of money, but was surprised because it was on sale. And even more surprised to learn that all the extras I already have for my MC*8000 will work with this model. Yeah!! More money saved!! Plus they threw in a bunch of extras. Stabilizers, a huge roll of Solvy, thread, filled bobbins, and a disc with 5000 patterns. I imagine those are just basics, but I shoiuld be able to find a few I like in that!LOL Now to unpack!!
