    This was a 3 day event "Eleanor Burns Quilting Academy" It was held at the Del Mar Hilton (San Diego area), and was sponsored by Sewing Machines Plus, a sewing dealership in San Marcos CA (North San Diego County). Eleanor Burns lives in Carlsbad and has her store in San Marcos, so she is our local celebrity.

    This event was so much fun so I am hoping they repeat it again in 2012, but when I saw Eleanor at the quilt show she told me she doesn't think they will. Dealerships sponsor these events to sell their machines, so the sales have to be high enough to cover the cost of hosting these events.

    If ever you have a chance to meet her, or take one of her classes, please do. She is a wonderful sweet woman.

    edit: She also has a store in Paducah Kentucky, and spends her time there as well.

    I love my Ellisimo. I have had it about a year and like it more each time I use it. And I use it all the time. Good choice!

    i have to admit this is a new one for me. Who makes this elisimo??? I have a janome 6600 and love it. Wasn't impressed with the Janome 7000 last year so i doubt i will like the newest one. Probably just bigger and more expensive.

    I did and they look really nice. How is the price range compared to Janome.

    I paid 5,999 for my Ellisimo....last year...I don't have any idea how much Janome. Is...I made my decision on the machines features and ease of use but most importantly, dealer reputation and support.

    I have one too. It is fabulous. I bought it after having owned 4 Berninas. It is the best machine I have owned. Looking forward to the new updates.

    Hi,

    I AM JEALOUS!!!!!!! You will love it, is my dream machine....but really and truly can't justify it as I have the Symphony and an Elegante 2 and couldn't give up either....sew on the Symphony and embroider at the same time on the Elegante.
    I have seen the Ellisimo in action and it wowed me! You will love it, love it, love it!! I love my Babylocks!

    Can't wait to try the embroidery - the reason I decided to get a new machine in the first place. :)

    I'm not sure - I hope I can do some embroidry type quilting. I have a mid arm machine for regular quilting. I mostly bought this for the embroidery designing. I had a Bernina 180e and loved doing the "E" but it was limited.

    Congratulations on your purchase. Enjoy!

    I bought the 3 upgrades but they haven't come in the store yet. I finished a table runner top and need to quilt it. Next I plan on taking out the embroidery stuff and start having fun.

    Do the updates incorporate the features of the new Gold Ellisimo?
