Wink Janome New Home 7700QCP vs Janome Horizon MC 7700QCP

I am shopping for a new-to-me-machine. I would like to know what the difference is between the Janome New Home 7700QCP, and the Janome Horizon MC 7700QCP. I understand the New Home is the replacement of the other, but why AND how??? Thank you friends

Horizon had to be sold by sticks n' bricks "Horizon"-authorized dealers. New Home could "officially" be sold over the internet.

Otherwise they are the same machine with a different color faceplate.

I had a Horizon 7700 before I upgraded to a Janome that has embroidery.

I believe the biggest difference is the accessories included - most notably the extension table. I seem to remember someone mentioning the cover and included feet may be different.

Hope this helps.

skip the 7700.
if you can afford an 8900, that's the way to go.
the 8200 is also excellent. just not as many accessories; fewer stitches; and [i think ... not sure ...] top speed is not as fast as the 8900.

the dual feed mechanism on the 8000 series is waaaaaay easier to use.
i almost never used the regular feet.

I agree, especially the most recent incarnation, the Special Edition. #1 - no APC stitch plate to worry about like the 7700, #2 - easy-change three hole straight stitch plate that is designed for 1/4" seam piecing (unlike either the 7700 or the original 8900), #3 - easy-set bobbin.

I have the original red 7700 and do like it, but if I was shopping for a new Janome I would be looking at the 8900SE.

Great Advice! On the 8900 you can snap on the feet (1/4 inch, in the ditch, open) for the acufeed foot. On the 7700, you need to unscrew the entire foot. Also on the 7700 you need to unscrew the needle plate, on the 8900 it "pops" off.
