Well my motor on my Janome 6000 seized on me (she needed a transplant). While waiting for her to be repaired, I started to check out other machines Viking, Bernina etc. The Janome 7700 Horizon won my heart . Since I was going through withdrawals while mama was in for repairs, I bit the bullet and purchased the 7700.
I have whipped out a bunch of half finished projects on my new toy. I have mama back now also and my 6 yr old grand daughter claims her now. she can sew a pretty good straight stitch with the 1/4 inch piecing foot with the guide. She did help with some of the stitching.
