I got rid of my Janome - I figured it was just setting around - I hated the dumb thing. It just didn't do what I told it to do and it wouldn't sew through much.
That is why I got rid of my newish Kenmore...It could not handle all the ruffles I like to make..
While experiment with making decorative oven mitts, I discovered that my Bernina 1005 can sew through 6 layers of low-loft batting and 4 layers of cotton fabric. I realized that that was too much batting for my project, but it wasn't too much for my machine to handle!
