I am looking at purchasing the new Janome 7700, has anyone sewn on it, and how might it compare to the 9700. I am a quilter, but also want a machine for general sewing as well as a small amount of embroidery. I have sewn on a Singer Touch and Sew for about twenty years so this is a big leap.

Also I am looking for a dealer in Burlington who would sell this machine. Thank you

I love my 7700...I bought it so that I could do my own FMQ'ing. I did not like having to pay someone to do it for me and I really am not a big fan of tie quits. Once you get use to it...and use the right feet, needles and just get the feel of it...You will love it...using the right size needles is important as I recently learned.

love my 7700

I got mine in Feb and I love it. My FMQ is coming quite along. I also got the table it sits in, and that is wonderful as well. It IS a big leap...but IMO it's been SO worth it.

I have been looking for a sewing cabinet. I found a few I like but the hubby wants real wood...I hate to spend that much on a Kaola. I also want it to look like a nice pieace of furniture I can keep in my livingroom in the corner and one on wheels. I will look for the one I saw...love it but needs to be real wood.

This is the sewing cabinet/table I like...trying to figure out if the Jamone will fit.

If you are going to free motion quilt you will want the blue bobbin case.(30.00) also the quilting needles. they are only 5.99 - Alos I love the accufeed 1/4 foot you have to buy that separate too...its 24.99

Why the blue bobbin case? I got the 1/4 foot with mine and I didn't know there was a quilting needle,where did you get it from?

I also don't understand the "blue" bobbin case, and I also received the 1/4 foot through the mail as they've changed it, but it was free. I did get the table that Janome has made to fit the Horizon and I love it, I'm short so putting it on top of table was just too high .. the table sits down and also has a place for the knee lift. I love it.
