If you could get a choice of these machines which would you get???
Janome 6600P, Horizon,or 11000 Special Edition..
I am so undecided on which one cause they are so expensive I dont want to get one and then feel I have to upgrade in a year!
Everyone loves the 6600P...thats what I read about ti anyway !!but has the shorter arm space distance.
Horizon has the longer arm space which I like and is pretty much the same as the 6600.
11000 has it all plus the embroidery that I would really like to have to.
So what's a Gal to do :?: :?:

I love my embroidery machine. It has been great to add it to special projects.

I would also consider the 6500, it has the 9 inch throat space.

PS that is what I want.

You should go for the one that has all the options that you will want.

You first have to decide if embroidery capability is a must. If so, you've made your choice.

I agree. I own the 6600. The Horizon is nice but pricey to me. My BFF has it. 11000 is nice but I dont think it has the accufeed.

I would get a separate embroidery machine. That way the embroidery machine can be sewing away while you are working on the other machine.

For quilting, the bigger throat is a huge advantage.

I have the 6600 and I love the accufeed feature. I would certainly go for the largest throat you can get, but accufeed would be a deal breaker for me.

I love to quilt. But, I really love to do Embroidery projects. There are so many gifts that are sewn out in embroidery. Depends on how much you want to spend. When I first started to do the embroidery machines. I upgraded 4 times in the same year as I always wanted just a little bit more capabability..

Decide first what you want to do the most with the machine. I agree with getting a different machine for embroidery only. Have had both and prefer to have one machine for sewing and one for embroidery and a different one for quilting. There is always room for one more machine in the sewing room!
Seriously, decide which options are most important to you. Make a list and be realistic. Prioritize.......
