    Someone pinch me...I can't believe this is true. LOL

    My original plan was to go to the Janome dealer this morning and check out the 6600. Well...I walked out the door TODAY with the Horizon 7700. I won't go into all of the details but...they were offering 6 months same as cash...nothing down. He had asked me why I had my heart set on the 6600 instead of the 7700 and I said the price. He said well...the 7700 is on sale now and will be for a couple of more weeks. He explained that Janome prices are going up but the dealers don't know exactly what date. He said typically they raise their prices in the first 3 months of the year so by the end of March for sure. He spent well over an hour with me explaining everything and then I got to test drive it. OMG...I couldn't believe it. The machine I have now is an Elna that my hubby bought me for Christmas in 1999. He said...things have come a LONG way since then. He did say that the Elna was an excellent machine. I agreed that in all that time I never had any problems with it.

    So...he turned the price tag around and I about passed out. Brand new 7700 for $1,999.00. I couldn't get done saying OMG because I was thinking the 6600 was going to cost around $1,500. So I said...you talked me into it...and he laughed and said I really don't think so. I think you talked yourself into it...which was actually true.

    My instruction lesson is Jan. 27th. I told him that I didn't take advantage of the free instruction lesson with my Elna...but really have to for this machine.

    My sewing room is a nightmare and I don't have a place yet for this machine so I MIGHT just set it up on my dining room table to play around with it. Then by the time I have my lesson I hope to have this room fixed just like I want it and will bring it upstairs to it's new home. Dang...this thing IS heavy and I do have to take my machine to the class.

    Anyway...I am just so excited I just had to share with people who KNOW what it is to get your dream machine. Most of my friends and family hardly ever or don't sew...so telling them is like...oh that's nice.

    Have fun with your new baby, I love mine!!! There is a yahoo group specifically for this machine and they are really helpful with any questions you might have.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Oh...I will have fun. It's funny...I just joined that yahoo group yesterday and was approved a few hours later. I was hoping to start reading the messages last night but go sidetracked with some family stuff. This AcuFeed is amazing. When I sat down to sew in the store I couldn't believe my eyes how accurate it really is.

    Excellent price, congrats to you. I just might have to pay my local Janome dealer a visit.

    Yep, I walked in to my LQS with NO intention of buying a machine and went home that evening with a 7700. The crazy part is my 6600 is only a year old. The deal seemed too good to pass up. I sewed on it last night. It was similar enough to the 6600 that I've skipped the lesson, although I might go in to ask a couple more questions.

    Congratulations on your new baby!

    Amazing! Of it had been thqt price when I was looking, I would have gotten it for sure. I'd love that harp.space! (though I love the machine I got and am thrilled to have an embroidery module)

    Congrats and enjoy

    What an amazing price, I have been throwing around the idea of getting the 7700. I too would have jumped at that price. CONGRATS!!

    Thanks everyone. I keep going in the dining room to make sure it's there and not a dream. LOL

    My husband came home from work and I told him the whole LONG story. The only thing he said besides that's nice is...can it sew on a button. I said of course it can but that's not the reason I bought it.

    Tomorrow morning I'm going shopping with a friend; but tomorrow afternoon I plan to plug it in downstairs and play with it a little bit.

    Wow, what a great price! I'm sure you'll enjoy your Horizon, I love mine and I've had her for a year now. When I use my "to class" machine now, I miss the Horizon's special features - especially the thread cutter.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    Sounds like you got a great deal ... I'm making a trip to a LQS close to my house to see if they have any special deals! Have fun with your new machine.

    Congratulations. I am sew happy for you. I too had an Elna{ still do}when I went to the Janome dealer looking for
    a sewing table. This was several years ago, and I came home with a Janome 10001.
    They are both set up back to back, so all I have to do is plug them in.
    You are correct, they are heavy. LOL
    Send pictures when you get your room cleaned up. I need inspiration.
