    I love the Bernina activa 220, BUT the throat is smaller than my old Singer!! It was very important to me to get a deeper throat, but I think they come with more stitches than I'd ever need--although boy are they FUN! My machine is 6.75", the Bernina is 6.25". I don't want to go shorter!!

    I'm off to check Janomes... it's a hike.

    The Janome 6500 and 6600 have a 9 1/2 inches.

    I love my 6500.

    Let us know what you think about the Janomes & any other ones you try. What fun you're going to have playing with all those machines.

    This is terrible to do to you, but I will say I bought one. Which one, you ask? I'll answer that when I post photos... AFTER I've gotten used to it and know what I'm talking about. :wink:

    I have a Bernina 640. I don't know what the throat size is tho because it is being cleaned right now and at the shop.

    I didn't think I'd use all it has on it, but I find I do.

    To find other headings click on Quilting Forum either at the top of the page and it is again at the bottom of the page. That will take you to the "table of contents" so to speak. Then you can click on any of those headings that will take you to just pictures or tutorials or others. I usually stick to recent topics at the top of the page but I do like looking at pictures. :)

    Thank you Celest and Mary QC. You are so kind and patient.
