    Hi-

    I am seriously considering purchasing the Janome Horizon, but was wondering if the $3k price tag is out of the ballpark? I was thinking that some people are purchasing them for $2500 or a little less, but maybe I am wrong?

    Please shed some light on this. Thanks!

    $3K is not out of the ball park, but you should be able to get the machine for closer to $2500. Depending on your local dealers, you might have to wait for one of the Janome special promotions though.

    I know a few people have done appreciably better than $2500, but that seems to be the best possible price in my area.

    $3,000 is the full manufacturer's suggested retail price. my dealer sells it for $2,400. the next lowest price i've heard is $2,500.

    unless your dealer throws in several years of "free" maintenance (as in at least 3 years) and a nice selection of the optional feet and accessories, i'd look elsewhere.

    Do a search on this subject, there was a post about a month ago, a gal found a vendor in TN that was selling it for $1800. You wouldn't get free lessons but it would still be new and come with a full warranty.

    My DIL just bought this machine for 1400 euro. It's so sad it will be too expensive to import it to you....

    Hi Canmitch,
    Can you tell me where in Ontario that you found this price? The dealer in Guelph, Triangle Sewing Centre quoted me $3000 and the new dealer in Maxwell (south west of Collingwood) wanted $3200 but that included the new table that just came out. I am interested in this machine but have been hesitating about the price. Many thanks.

    My lqs just participated in a small quilt show and let the show use at least 20 of those machines. She in turn sells them at a discounted price to anyone interested. It comes with the tutto case ($200 value) for free and of course she takes trade ins on certain Janomes and a free class to learn how to use it. But this is in Houston, Tx. Not sure where you are.

    I got mine for $2495 at Alko Sewing Center. I wanted one but was not going to pay full retail of $3000. Told myself that I would pay as much as $2500 and if I could find one then I would buy it. $3000 is the suggested retail, dealers should be able to sell for what they want and still be able make a profit. The Horizon has a few more features than other lesser priced machines that are just as good, one just needs to decided if these features are what one really needs
    Try a few out before buying is always a good idea.

    You should do some more research on the best price possible. Every penny counts.

    Hi Shelbie: I bought my machine in Kelowna, B.C. for $2499 as well. Includes lessons (which I haven't taken yet) I had a Janome previously and found I don't really need lessons - it is very user-friendly. Good luck! You will love it!!

    I bought mine in central BC for $2200 CDN (with the 12% tax it came to just under $2500)The dealer threw in the travel case as well. I didn't get the table though but I think I will end up getting it later on.
