    Oh my goodness! I went shopping for a Toyota and came home with a Mercedes!

    I love my Vintage machines, but had a hankering for something a little fancier. I was looking at mid-range Baby Locks, but my husband started asking comparison questions about different machines. Next thing I knew, I had fallen in love with the Elissimo Gold. We sat for a good long time thinking about which machine to get, but when the saleswoman came back and offered another $1000 off, we went for it. Will I ever learn all the features this has? Yikes!

    Very Very nice. Take some classes and you'll love it even more!
    At least that's what I had to do before I loved my modern machines . . .

    I was overwhelmed when I got my last Janome, but a few classes later, I can make that thing perform! Take some classes and you will have it down in no time. Congrats on a gorgeous new baby!

    You will love it! I have the Brothets Quattro 6000D, which is the same machine. I feel so spoiled. I wouldn't trade it. I just live live live it!!!! Thanks to my DH who told me to get the top if the line. I use it almost everyday. Congrats and enjoy.

    That is why you should negotiate the price!

    Congrats on the new beauty!
