    Hi-

    A local dealer is telling me that a Janome 6600p is close to $2k? Is that right?? I have been reading blogs etc. and I haven't seen one close to that price. Maybe I am mistaken??

    Thanks!

    THAT is wishful thinking on his part. I'd suggest you check out www.patternreview.com and enter 6600 in the search box and select sm/sergers in the lookup section (it defaults to "pattern" where the down arrow is) You will see that nobody paid more than $1,500 and the lowest was under $1,000. With the new Horizon on the market, I would negotiate like the dickens.

    Does your dealer run specials throughout the year? Good luck.

    I think mine was around 1,900 - it comes with 2 1/2 year cleaning and 100 percent warrenty on everything. I have not taken mine out of the box yet...

    I paid $1399 for a new one. They wanted $1499 but I talked them down a hundred bucks.

    They were asking 1200 for one in Middle Tennessee at the local sewing machine store. It was new.

    Things are usually more here in Chicago, but I wouldn't pay more than $1000-1100 regardless of what's included. There are several similar machines to this one now, the Elna 7300, which is made by Janome, the Babylock Quest Plus (I paid $1300 for this incl some extras 2 mos ago), and the Pfaff Smarter C1100Pro, which is NEW and has 9mm stitches, a free arm, auto cut, low bobbin alert, electronic tension and sells for $1600. Also, the Horizon and other new models coming out should drive down the price of the 6600. So do NOT pay $2K for a 6600. It's a got a reputation as a fabulous machine. There are probably used ones for sale from new Horizon owners.

    Hi,

    I am interested in purchasing a 6600p but my LQS is quoting $1800. Can you tell me where in Middle Tn you have seen them for $1300? Also if anyone knows of a shop in Georgia selling them for a good price I would be willing to drive there. Thanks alot.

    There's one for sale on this board with the table. Check under classifieds. This machine has a solid reputation.

    I have a Janome 6600P complete with the Janome table, the knee lift, extention table, manual, all the feet and even a bag of 50 extra bobbins for $1,250. It is 3 years old and has been used very little except for quilting. It has the built-in walking foot. I have 3 other sewing Janome's as well as the 350E Janome embroidery machine. This machine is well worth the money, don't know where you live at, but might be worth the drive.

    My favorite Nechi NewHome dealer has a used 6500P for $1100. It is a wonderful place, so $1300 for the next model up sounds great.

    Thank you - your price sounds great but unfortunately your location is a bit too far away. We are in Tennessee and heading to florida in two weeks so was hoping to locate something in that direction. Good luck - I'm sure someone will snap up your deal.

    Hi,

    Since I am new at posting on a board I am not sure this is the correct spot but..... I'd like to thank the person that mentioned the quilt shop in Camden Tn. My LQS quoted $1800 for the 6600P - the Quilting Bee in Camden has new ones for $1349!!!! So I am now the happy owner of a new Janome 6600P - thank you, thank you!
