    Janome 6600 question

    Hello.. I have a Janome 6600 and I love it, but I can't figure out something. I read the instruction book and I can't find it in there either. I am hoping you guys can help me

    The machine has a blanket stitch, but I wanted to sew the stitch in the other direction. Is there button to push to have the stitch reversed? or mirror image.. or whatever it would be called

    Please let me know

    After you bring up the stitch (mode 2, 35?) on the panel, above the Janome name there is a button that looks like a dark/light moon. Press that.

    Yes, I have the mirror option on my Bernina 1530.

    Wondering if the 6600 with overhead foot feed is MUCH better than the 6500 Janome for sewing lycra?
    I've had forever a Pfaff 1229(with overhead foot feed) and it works great, but am upgrading to the Janome line. Wondering which to purchase.
    Thanks..

    If you only want to sew Lycra, you might want to consider a serger. In my opinion, they are easier and do a better job on stretch knits. Plus they are cheaper. The 6600 with the dual feed would do a good job, but you already have a sewing machine. Just something for you to consider
