I am thinking of upgrading from my present sewing machine to a Janome Memory Craft 6300.  Does anyone have experience with this machine?  I would like a few opinions before I spend that much money!  Thanks.

I have a memory craft 6500 and totally recommend it - I love it - great for the price - only thing I wish it had was to tell me the bobbin was out... I miss that feature...lol...

I do not know about the 6300 but the 6500 is great for the price - absolutely no complaints.

Thanks for the info.  I know what you mean about the bobbin - drives me crazy when I'm on a roll and all of a sudden realize I'm out of thread!

I had the 6600, good machine but didn't have a free arm, so not real good for general sewing. I have the 7700 now  and I love it

I bought the Janome 6600 a year ago and have been very happy with it.

I had the 6500, now have the 7700 and would recommend the Janome's in general, great machine!  Shop around online to see what the 6300 is going for so you'll have a place to start with your dealer, if that's the case.  EBay is a good place to start.

Thanks Marie.  I think I will probably end up getting the 6500 in the next couple of months.  Checking EBay is a great idea.

Barb - I paid just less then $1000 for my 6500 from my dealer and got free cleanings along with it for 5 years.  The price was awesome to me as it was way less then when they first came out - plus I love all the features - it has a nice size throat space which was one of the things I was looking for and is really awesome to free motion quilt on - when I can do that... I don't like the stitch as much as I do my Pfaff but my Pfaff has a really sweet stitch - but the Janome has a nice stitch... and throat... and separate bobbin winder so you can sew and wind a bobbin at the same time... nice selection of stitches - although I only use 3...lol...and it also came with one of those separate tables so that was a plus when I take it for classes... it just fits in my sewing table so any bigger and I would have been in the market for a new sewing table and not ready for that...

Two more places to price check are:  sewvacdirect.com and sewingmachinesplus.com.  My dealer will price match so if yours will, too, those are two good places to check.  Some dealers also sell on EBay so as Marie said, it's a good place to start.
