    Love my Janome. Beware of the height of the machine hurting back and shoulders if you usually have your machine in a cabinet. The extra height killed my neck, back, shoulders, until I adjusted my table. Good luck! Can't spell height today, sorry.

    Congrats on your new Janome. I purchased one last August and 3 weeks ago a got an error when sewing and the machine froze up. I called my dealer and he thought it was the fuse so he ordered one because he didn't have one in stock. A week later I still had not heard from him so I found another dealer who had a fuse she told me to bring it in and she would have it the next day. After 4 more days I called and she said she had been busy and hadn't had a chance to fix it. She called me later in the day and told me it was not a fuse but the motherboard and she would order one and have it for me last Monday. On Tuesday I had not heard from her so I called and she said she was just getting to it. A couple of hours later she called to say that Janome sent the wrong motherboard and it will be at least another week. I love my Janome and everyone that has one is so happy with them. I guess I just got a lemon and living in a small community the service isn't that great. I hope when I get it back it works good and I don't have any more problems with it. I have been a pretty mean lady the last 3 weeks without my machine. I am sure that this is a rare occasion after reading all the threads on the board.

    I have noticed the height. I will probably have to change out chairs since I can't adust the table. But that is ok. Hubby fixed me a board to put over the hole where my Singer goes and I covered it with some left over layer cakes. So I am ready to get to sewing!

    I just bought my first Janome too. Mine is the lighter and cheaper version DC1050 to take to classes and to travel. Anyway, I have been very impressed with its good straight stitch, quietness, and variety of stitches. since I've only had it a couple of weeks, I can't vouch for how long it will last. But everyone else seems very pleased. Good luck with yours and I'm very happy for you.

    Congratulations on the Janome. I have 3. One was just a simple machine my other two are quilting 6260 and 5200. I love to use them and I just gave my grandson's wife the simple machine. I also have a Viking from the 70s but it's too heavy to keep lifting and think of selling.

    Thanks! I am keeping the Singer since it is a close friend of the family's grandmother's. Hubby fixed a board for me to cover the hole so I could fold out the table for my sewing space. I covered with fabric. I already have some ideas of projects and hope to start them this week while my mom is in town.

    I did have an issue today. I was trying the combo stitching and the fabric got jammed in the bobbin area. Then the needle broke. But I got the fabric out and changed the needle (not sure how long that was in there) so I hope I am ready to get sewing soon.

    I love the Janome I bought on ebay years ago. Inspired me to learn to sew. I couldn't just leave it sitting in the box -- although I did for years. I found a guy that sells most of the feet I don't have on ebay too. So now I just have to figure out how to sew and what I might need...

    I have that exact same sewing table and DH was able to fit my DC3050 right into the original cutout after making a little shelf for it to sit on.

    Congrats on your new machine she is lovely.

    I love both my little Janome I carry to guild and the bigger one . They are both so quiet and I love them . I think you will too . I have my work horse Bernina and it is a really good machine too. I have a universal sewing table to sell that fits the Janome. It is listed in the area of things to sell. Enjoy that machine .

    We talked about that but I did want it where I could use the free arm since I make lots of skirts and pants for my DD. And he had just the right size board and I had left over layer cakes that fit just right over it. I put a strip of velcro on the back to keep it from moving. It seems to work thus far.

    And thanks everyone. I hope to do some sewing on her today actually! So far it has been playing with the stitching and just sewing the layer cakes together to cover the wood.

    Try them first. If they don't work well in the new machine, just put them on the thread peg and rewind onto a new bobbin.

    I bought the same one back in Nov. Haven't had a lot of time to sew but so far I love it. My old Touch and Sew could not be repaired and this one was recommended by the dealer (he also sells the Singer). For every 2 Singer bobbbins I bring in he will give me one Janome bobbin. Just have to take my thread off so I can save it before I take any more in to him. I am glad to hear all the good things about this machine. Thanks, everybody.

    After I saw the machine at the dealers, I came home and read the reviews on it on several sites. I don't think I found one bad review at all. So that helped me make my decision. I went first thing the next morning to get it. I have just used it for playing around but so far I love it. I am just amazed at how quiet it is.

    Congrats on your new machine. You will love it. I love my 9700 it dose everything. There just seems to be so little time to play with it.

    I agree on this:
    Bobbins ... Some will look very close and you may be tempted to use them .... then you might wonder why your machine does not work right. Just buy them from your dealer so you are sure to have the right ones.

    Also a little tip on winding the bobbins, make sure you have it threaded right or you will wind up with very loose and tangled thread on the bobbin (I did).
    Yes you can save the thread by winding new bobbin off the old bobbin.
