    I bought my new Janome Horizon today and it is fantastic. What can I say? It has so many stitches and so much more than my Janome 6500. I played with it tonight and love it. I am thrilled.

    I am just going to keep on working on my block of the month for now. I was just playing with it a bit again just now and I am thrilled. They have improved some of the things that bugged me with the 6500 like the knee pedal to raise and lower the foot is now adjustable. My knee did not reach it before until my husband improvised it. There are so many more stitches and different things you can do with it. I am still learning. The lady who owns the LQS where I got it is getting one too in a couple of weeks. When she gets hers, she will give me a better lesson on it once she gets to know hers better. There is a video tape to watch also.

    Very glad to hear good reviews about this machine. It sure looks like it will be a wonderful sewing machine.

    My SIW and I both tried to check this machine out. No dealers close so we called. They are not allowed to tell us the price. I am guessing at about $11000. Would you mind telling us . NO sense getting all worked up and going to travel to see it is we can't afford it

    Have fun with yours and happy for you too

    MSRP is $2999. My dealer has given me a good deal in trading in my 6600 for the Horizon. I'm just sitting and twiddling my thumbs waiting for it to come in. Can't wait to get my hands on my new "baby". Heard nothing but rave reviews from all new owners.

    I love my Horizon as well, and I sold my 6600P to get it.

    Congrats! on the new machine. I just looked at it last saturday and love it. I would love one too but I just think its alot more machine than I would ever need. I am thinking about one of the other quilting machines they make. Any suggestions? The stopperer for me is the price. almost 3 thousand dollars is just too much.

    Enjoy that machine and yes we all want to see your latest project.

    Canmitch1971, I have the Janome 6600 and I just posted on the Janome yahoo group that I can't reach my knee lift at all, unless I totally shift my body. How did your husband improvise it? Thanks, Sarah in CA

    Marlet, Is it too bold of me to ask what your dealer gave you for trading in your 6600 for the Horizon? I have a 6600 that I just purchase in October 2009,but am thinking of the Horizon (one reason being the adjustable knee lift, among other new features). If you prefer not to say, that's okay.
