    I just looked at a Janome machine last week. The salesman offered to sell it for $400. with my old Singer as a trade. (I don't recall the Janome ###) I'm going to go look at it again today, and tell him the reason I haven't been in to seal the deal is that my husband has to take my old machine out of the built-in cabinet. He's been too busy, and I was away to Wash.DC to the march for LIFE on a church bus. I ..want to know if this price is a good deal. I'll return to this site later today when I get the number on the model. ....later ladies....Jeanne

    I just luuuuvvvve my Horizon. I have the 11000SE and when I got the Horizon, the 11000SE sits in the corner. It's basically my embroidery machine only now. I do everything on the Horizon. I adore it. I had the 6600 and traded it in for the Horizon, didn't like the 6600 as much as I thought I would, it didn't have a freearm.

    I do not have a quilting frame (yet) so I do not know how it would work. It should be a little better as the throat size is larger.

    I just bought the 7700 before Christmas. Love many of the features except the little plate that closes (or is supposed to) every time you go to straight stitch. That came off. That feature is kind of annoying. Wish it was easier to go to selected stitches. LOVE the thread cutter!! Haven't done much quilting with it yet but like the idea of the larger harp. That is one of the reasons I traded in my 4900. Any suggestions?

    Janome acknowledged several months ago that there was a problem with the needle plate. Anyone that had registered their machine received a new needle plate automatically directly from Janome. If yours is giving you problems and you have registered your machine, you need to contact your dealer or Janome so you can get your replacement. I had registered my machine and it was one of the first ones that came out and was sent one automatically although I have never had a problem with the original one. Hope this information helps you.

    The end of April is a long time to wait. Maybe you should take a few yards of fabric over to your dealer in the meantime and get a head start on that quilt? lol

    Well, good for you! I keep looking and toying with the idea of a new machine. I am not familiar with a Janome so will have to research it. I am happy for you and now that you have done it, know you will be happy too.

    Hi again!
    I just got back from town and chekcing the price of the Janome machine I was looking at. DC2010 for $400. including trade. Or the DC4030 $599.00 The second model has a button for sewing ;No pedal which was nicer but for the difference in price, does a pedal bother anyone????

    I am envious. I have the 6600, a wonderful machine. But I have test-driven the 7700, too and I am in love.
    Congratulations.

    We paid 3,000 for the machine so take care to what she wants for it . You can also check the price on line at Janome.com. Y ou will also love the 5 lights. Ask her to throw in the extra FMQ bobbin holder. It Really makes a difference. The machine is great congrats.
