    Hello Ladies and Gents,

    I am currently pricing and actually have on layaway a Janome MC6600p and is interested in purchasing the MC 350E thereafter.

    Is there anyone out here that have either machine and their thoughts about it (them)?

    Don't have those two - I have the smaller 760. If I knew what I knew now, I'd buy the bigger Janome. I LOVE my machine!!!

    There is a new Janome coming out in a few days. Unless you got a great deal (under 1149) you may want to consider waiting.

    Go to the search feature at the top of the page and put in the machines you're interested in. There have been lots of threads.

    I just purchased a 6600 about a month ago and love it!!! It is sooo user friendly and I love what I can do with it compared to the one that's being, sort of, retired (won't give it up). I paid $1149 for mine and it was a great deal!! If you purchase through a dealer, then you usually have a year to upgrade your purchase. They'll take what you paid for your machine and put it towards the new one.

    The new Horizon looks to be a beautiful machine, but is going to run about 800-900 more.

    I don't have the 350, but the next machine I look at is going to be an embroidery.

    Hope your dealer is as nice as mine!!! Good Luck!! :-D

    Mine is now retired. It is a 4623 LE Plus and I have had many years of great service from it. Some day I plan to get a new one, it will be a Janome.

    I have Janome 6600 and the embroidery machine 10001. I haven't feel the need to purchase another brand name.

    I have both of those and love them! Great dependable machines. I've had the 6600 for 18 months and the 350E for 6 months. No problems from either and I've sewn hours and hours.

    I started off with a Janome 350e and I liked it a lot however I really wanted a larger hoop - so I sold a ton of stuff and bought the MB-4 which I liked at first then learned to absolutely despise it. I sold that and now have a Brother 4500d and love love love it.

    Don't get me wrong I loved my Janome 350e and as long as you are happy with the 5x7 hoop size it's a great, solid machine. I had no issues at all with it. I just wanted that bigger hoop size. I do love my Brother and have had absolutely no problems with it either.

    The new Janome coming out is the 7700 and there are some specsheets available from Canada and England sites. You can read up on it. I expect that the realease of the new machine gives more negotiating power on the 6600s.

    Janome 6600 here... still learning all it can do but love it. Started with a lower-end Janome and it is, and will always be, my baby. Had offers from friends to buy it (since I got a bigger one) but just can't part with it. That alone should tell you what I think about Janome.

    when i heard about the 7700 i got a knot in my stomache. why? because i just treated myself to a 6600 in November. i was scared to death i wouldn't be able to resist the new one. (i wasn't even curious about the price. i assumed it would cost exactly whatever amount i had free on my credit card. that's just the way these things work. :lol: )

    i was so relieved when i finally got to look at an advertisement for it. the 7700 definitely looks like one suweeeeeeet machine. i confess to a bit of drooling over the extra 2-12" of throat space. and they have added a couple of pretty nifty sounding features. but since it does not include a few of the things i like best about my 6600, and has a clear extension table (which would get on my nerves) i don't feel the urge to run out for a trade-in.

    my heart goes out, though, to anybody who doesn't already have a 6600 and has to choose between the two. that would be a tough decision. i don't know which i'd pick.

    Hi..I just got the Janome 6600P, and it is a wonderful machine..I love it too! There is a 6600, that is different than the Professional model. The dealer also has classes, that is included, where he teaches you things that are not in the book, its a 3 1/2 hr class, for 4 days....12 hours total.
    I paid 1499.00, he wouldn't come down at all, and this was during his 'sale'. It is regularly 1999.00, but has been discontinued. The speed is one of the reasons I liked it, and the double needle option...I am sure you know all about it's options, though. It does not slide, or move, when quilting, and that's important to me too.

    I have the 350E and also the MB4 and I LOVE them both. I use the 350E for smaller projects and the MB4 for larger ones.

    The 6600 & 6600P are the same machine. I just don't type in the "P". Now there is a 6500 which is different.

    I have the 6600P and it is a work horse - love it and found it was a good investment.
