    Is my Memory Craft Janome 5,000 Vintage ??

    I purchased this new in 98'
    I am looking to sell my Janome 5,000 & just seen this site after my posting F/S.
    I have never had a problem with the awesome sewing/embroidery machine but now I wanted a Janome 11,000 SE model to be able to do quilting & larger format embroidery.

    How old must a machine be to be considered Vintage ?
    Thank you
    Linda

    I'd consider it "older" but not "vintage" as we tend to think of it here....
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Vintage is usually 1959 or earlier, antique is 1929 or earlier.
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

    It's only 14 years old. No, it's not "vintage". It's not even "old".

    For "ME" "vintage" is pre-plastic, pre-electronics, pre-computers. If it's got any of that nonsense on board, it ain't vintage.

    I know I'm just an anachronism.

    Did you sell your Janome 5000? Mine was stolen several years ago and I would love to have another. It is a great machine and I still have many accessories for it.
