    I need to buy a new machine. I am saving for a mid arm Janome. I have been using my 36 year old kenmore. I was not enjoying it much. I found this at Walmart for $199. I am going to spend the next week learning how to use it. I plan to keep it as a back up, when I do get my Janome. Some of the feature include variable needle position and speed, quilting accessories, basic font, 80 built in stitches, 120 stitch functions, quilting table, 8 feet (including walking, free motion, and 1/4 inch) and needle up and down.
    I will follow up with how this baby sews later. I am off to get it set up.

    I just watched the DVD that came with the machine. If it works like it says it would be a great machine for her.
    I having been looking at the 6500. It has the 9x5 throat and a whole lot of other features I want.

    If I like this machine I may keep it for piecing and look at the 1600 or something like it.

    I have the 1600 DP and I love it. I actaully just finished putting together my quilt frame and since I bought the 1600 to go on the frame, I will lose it for my piecing and I am really sad! I might actually buy another one I love it so much! HIGHLY recommend for quilting!!

    I just bought this exact model on line. I bought it to learn free motion quilting. I've finished one quilt with it from start to finish. I really like this machine. As far as the FMQ, that is going to take some practice. And it's not the machine's fault...ha. I go too fast & then the stitches are too long or I go too slow and the stitches are too short. Although, there were some stitches that were just right. I gave the quilt to my brother and he loved it....bad stitches & all.
