I have a Janome MC4900QC sewing machine and love it. It was more machine that I will ever need. I wanted tons and tons of stitches and in hindsight really didn't need them. I will probably never ever use them....

As far as embroidery machines - I started out on a Janome 350e and loved it but wanted a bigger hoop so I got the Janome MC4 which I despised and despised is probably not a strong enough word for it... I sold that and bought a Brother 4500d which I love when I actually use it lol



I am sure you will love the 3000 :)
