    Bought a new to me sewing machine !!!!!

    Well my old Pfaff Tiptronic 2030 circuit board went and is not repairable. The dealer is not sure I can even get a replacement. So my wants for the new machine is a larger throat and better FMQ ability and more stitches and a larger table. Was able to find a used Janome Horizon 8900 with the red front on it only 1 month old as previous owner decided she wanted more embroidery options and bought a new 1200. Full warranty and 3 yr in store service included for free plus unlimited classes for 3 years on the machine and $100 in store credit on my dead machine for $1500. I could not believe much more of a machine than I thought I would ever be able to afford!!!! She said it just came in yesterday and even is not on the floor as they will go through it and fully service it and still has the orginal box. I am so happy that ladies husband allowed her to upgraded in only 1 month of owning it

    Wow! Being in the right place at the right time. May the 2 of you travel many miles of sewing together. I fell in love with that machine too, waiting for a used one to turn up.

    Wow! Congratulations on getting a great machine! I fell in love with that Janome Horizon red fronted machine after test driving it at a quilt show. It is truly an awesome machine. I wish you many happy hours of sewing with her! Also, my condolences on the demise of your Pfaff Tiptronic. I have one, too, and love it. Mine is the 2040. I had two, and sold one---still not sure I made a good decision there.....The new owner loves and takes great care of her, though. (I felt like I was putting a child up for adoption, and needed to find a great home in order to be able to let go of her, lol!)
