    My mum is getting a new Sewing Machine a Bernina 440 QE and she is going to give me her old Janome!!!! It is a quilter's edition and is only 2 years old and is hardly used!!! My sewing machine is called a Toyota and I picked it up from Spotlight, a fabric store here- it is really cheap, but does the job!!!!

    I am so pleased for my mum, but it is like a double Christmas present! A pleasant surprise!!!!

    WOOHOO!!!!
    I went to Spotlight in Brisbane.
    Wasn't impressed with that store. Ok, it was the nasty, could have cared less people that worked there that I didn't like. That's when I went across the REALLY busy street for the LQS . lol

    what kind of janomee is it? i love my 6600, even put it on a quilting frame, when my new, used pfaff grand was in the shop--because of my stupidity. the janome made small work of that twin quilt in nothing flat.

    Its exciting to get a new machine! I have bought brand new and used machines and I was just as excited with the used as I was the new. That's great of your mom to give you the machine!

    Sounds like a win-win situation. Glad for both of you. Did your mum get the stitch regulater with her Bernina? It is well worth the extra investment;Makes FMQ so much easier. I have the Bernina 440 QE w/ BSR and I love it!

    Lucky you!! That is a win/win situation. I just love my Janome; but wish I would have paid a little more for the Quilter's model...more nice stitches to use.

    I won't get it until mum gets hers, which will be Christmas and she is doing a course with the new machine in January, so she may not give over the Janome until she gets use to the new one.
