    Hi...today we went and bought my new machine...Janome Horizon. I don't know if I'm excited or in a state of shock that I spent so much on a sewing machine. I mean, it cost more than our big tv, or more than our computer, or even more than my new oven last year...lol. But I just know I'm going to love it. Been watching the video and now I'll have a look through the manual and then I might even get game to try the machine...lol. Ok, I'm off to learn more..lol

    Congrats!! I am sure you will have years and years of fun and quilting with the machine so it will prove to be a very worthy investment! :)

    Cheers!

    I'm actually tempted to sell my midarm quilting set up and get the Horizon... that is unless I actually learn how to put a quilt on the frame and take it from there lol.... I need to make time and get over my fear...


    But that Horizon looks really really cool...although the Bernina with the bsr also is a drool inducer lol

    Enjoy that new machine and don't think about the price tag. You will use it for many, many years to come!!

    I got my Janome Horizon in June and I absolutely love it. Everytime I start sewing I am thrilled with it. It does so many things that I will probably never use all of them, but it sure is nice to know they are there if you need them. I need to learn stippling so I can do my own quilting now.

    Congrats on your new machine. I have the Janome 6600 which the Horizon replaces. It is all the machine I will ever need. I am envious, the Horizon is so pretty, and love the needle hole plate.

    Thanks everyone...I had a little play this evening and I am thrilled..not that I did much..lol. I have a couple of quilts to finish and I can't wait for her to sink her teeth into them..lol. Only only needs binding but the other, a baby quilt, needs to be quilted.

    I have no idea what I will call her/him yet..lol. I'll have to wait and see what comes to mind as I use her.. or him :)

    Well I just looked up your new baby and she is a beauty! And with a sewing space of 11" that's awesome, I saw you got a great deal on a machine that will be used more hours than a car!! Totally worth it. Enjoy.

    Congrats. This looks like an awesome machine. If I hadn't wanted the embroidery feature on my Bernina, I would have considered this one.

    I just love my Horizon, I have fewer problems with this machine than the 6600 I traded in. It's a dream. Enjoy!

    Congratulations! When I buy a new large item and I am in shock because of the cost I try rationalizing that I am helping the economy out :-) Have fun with your new sewing machine.

    I got to use one for a couple of days. The lady at my LQS lent me it while my piece of a "Bleep" Husky was on the fritz! Totally love the machine and am saving my pennies to buy one!!!
