By the way, other dealers are also selling it for $2199 including shipping. (Found this out 10 minutes too late, but I really like the owner of the company in FL). Also, he shipped it out today and there is no sales tax since I don't live in Florida. That saved me $150 right there. I can hardly stand it, I'm so excited to get my new machine.
    Congratulations! You will love the machine. I'm so happy you got a good deal! $2250 to your door is an excellent price.

    I've been really interested to read the posts on the Janome Horizon 7700. I bought one 2 years ago and had endless trouble with it. It sewed beautifully but when I came to FMQ, it didn't want to know! It went back to my dealer but, on return, was no different. In the end, I traded it in for the new Bernina Series 7 B750 Quilters Edition. I've always had Janomes in the past (and still have the 1100 and love it) but the Bernina is a dream machine for FMQing! I, too, have wondered why Janome has dropped the Horizon so soon!

    Hi Madriver! Could I please have your mom's Florida dealer as well? My local dealer here in western NC wants $4900.
    Anything that beats that will be great. Wish there was a premium of some kind for your helpfulness. Thanks.

    I haven't checked this thread in a long time and see that people have asked me for my dealer. So sorry I missed these posts! I am PM'ing everyone who asked with the information. If anyone else wants it, just PM me so that way I get an email message from the Quilting Board letting me know that someone needs information.

    The Janome 8900 has built in fonts. How many letters can you program in when using this feature? I'm interested in being able to "sign" quilts using that feature, but if you can only program 3 or 4 at a time, it would be cumbersome to use.

    Doesn't the new 8900 have a 9mm stitch width whereas the 7700 only has the 7mm?

    Yes, it does have the 9 mm width stitch, which makes a lot of difference in some and not so much in others. Mine arrived last week so I'm still playing with it. But so far I like it a lot. And at $2250.00 with free shipping and no tax, it was a great deal. I purchased from Tops Vacuum and Sewing in Sarasota, FL -- where Madriver got hers. The staff is very easy to deal with and don't mind anwering my "dumb" questions.

    Do you know if they will ship out of state or not? I'm ready to buy the 8900.

    I brought the 8900 2 weeks ago at my local sewing center. I paid $2499.00. I still don't know how to use all the functions on this machine. I think the instruction book could be better to explain about using all the function on this machine. I had a memory craft 9000 before which help me a lot to use this machine. So far I like this machine. I have not done any quilting yet.

    I love my Janome 8900. The wide harp area makes it so much easier to quilt. I get good 1/4" seams from the foot and 1/4" needle setting. Stitches are even. A real dream machine. You will find a wide range of prices quoted. The MSRP is around $4400 I believe but I have heard people picking up the machine anywhere between $2500-$3500. This machine is also used on quilt cruises so a lot of the gently used machines are available as well. There are more stitches and feet than I will probably ever use but who knows down the line I may.
