    Well my new machine is here and up and running.

    I ended up getting the Janome Magnolia 7318 and I LOVE it! It seems to be a little workhorse. It doesnt have all the bells and whistles, but I wanted a pretty simple, dependable machine and I think I got it :) It will do just what I wanted it to. For $199 I am a happy happy girl.

    If I wanted to spend more there are a couple of their machines that would even take things to a whole other level...but for me right now in these $$ times-I found a good fit.

    And my my...how sweet is a walking foot!!! This was my first experience w/ one :) It was the only acc. I added to my machine.

    I got my Janome 6600 about a year and a half ago and love it, the extra throat room is wonderful and the main reason I wanted it.

    Have fun with your new toy!!!

    I'm a Janome Girl too!!!! I started out twenty years ago with a New Home
    and loved loved loved that machine....So when I went to get a new machine (which I probably didn't need too, it sewed beautifully!) they weren't New Home anymore, they were Janome.....But, I love my Janome. Good machine for the money. Congrats and Have Fun.....

    I had a New Home (oh, still have) then I got the Janome 4000. I love it. It's uptown enough for me. The stitch is almost as nice as my old Singer 401. That thing was purchased in "62 and still makes a beautiful stitch. My favorite feature on the 4000 is the needle down feature.Doesn't take much to satisfy me, huh. :lol:

    Congrats!! How awesome! May you never run out of thread!!:)) I just had a long conversation w/a friend last night that is mostly a hand sewer but wants to (maybe) invest down the road to do some quick quilts that won't need the personal attention of her hand sewing. I had suggested the 3200 Janome due to the great job it does for so little amount of money. The one you just mentioned I will have to check out for her. So happy for you!! We all know how wonderful it feels to finally sew on machine that doesn't complain back at you!:)Skeat

    Proud owner of the Janome 3200, 6600 and a New Home at mom's:))
