    Good day all

    Well hello my name is Ben and here to try and get a few suggestion of what would be helpful for my wife and the new machine I got her for Christmas. It's a Jonome mc6600p. She does a lot of quilting and applicate. And this machine is for sewing only as she has a quilting machine already. What I would like to know is about presser feet, or any thing else that she might need to have to do what she does with out having to make 2 or 3 trips to the store to get this or that. I'm also looking at tables also and like the sew perfect table but have heard mixed reviews about them. Any help or insight would be great for me and I think she would be greatly happy too.

    Welcome fom Ontario, Canada. I am a Bernina owner so I can't give you specific help for a Janome. How about a gift card/certificate from the Janome dealer for Christmas so she can choose some accessories herself?

    Hello from Michigan. I have that machine, I bought the cording foot, I like to put piping on quilts also. Plus I found I needed extra bobbins!

    Well I called the shop where I'm getting the machine from and ordered the janome table to go with it. A gift card sounds like a good idea how bout amount. How expensive are the accessory for this thing?

    Oh I agree with the extra bobbins! and maybe even a seperate bobbin winder( if she doesn't have one already)... I always wanted one of those.
    Rotary cutter blades are always a great gift( check the size first) . We wait too long to change them.
    A nice assortment of varigated threads to play with are nice too.

    congrats on buying your wife the new machine. I'm from ND and just about any amt on a card is nice. those feet cost more than a person thinks. Check to see what kind of feet are available. might have to only buy one or two at a time.

    I have the same machine that you bought your wife. Hope she loves it - I love mine. My machine was sold with a table from Janome which was wonderful so my machine sets down into it. And I also bought the Sew-EZ table for my Viking - bought it on-line from the manufacture and it was delivered in 2 days. Excellent customer service and the table is very sturdy they cut the insert to the machine you own.

    You sound like my husband! If I just look at a machine it mysteriously appears in my sewing suite ~ not complaining but when you have 28 machines you can run out of room quite fast.

    Your wife will love any gift card for sewing if she loves sewing.

    Do you give lessons to other husbands because my husband of 32 years wouldn't even think about getting me a machine or quilting accessories as a gift! Although, I still love him...ha. If, your wife has talked about a table for the machine & she has the space I think that would be a great gift. Your should stop by the shop where you bought the machine & talk with the sales person. Good luck. Be sure to let us know what you got her & her reaction.

    Honestly we started quilting together almost 20yrs ago them it fell to the side due to our limited income and in the past 5 years we've picked it back up and she has been pretty serious about it. She's in a quilting club and they make and donate blankets for the local fire and rescue department for an auction that they have. Ill have to upload some pics to show some of her work space and quilts

    Well ladies she really likes her machine. She's already starting on a new king size quilt for her step mom. And has it about 2/3 the way done. I wasn't really to impressed with the quality of the table but she seems to be alright with it. Well thank you all for your help she did have a great morning.
