Wondering if anyone has/had one.  A friend is selling hers, trying to figure out if I want to get it.  She is seeling it fairly cheap, I think.  It has around 10 embroidery cards.  Also about 20 spools of thread.  It has a lot more stitches than mine . ..  which is cool, but not sure I would use them . . . but for the price, might be a nice back up machine . . . oh, she is selling it for $300.  Anyway, would love any input. 

Thanks!

Dawn,

 I have the 7500 and both machines are great machines... The 8000 has embroidery and my 7500 has just some decorative stitches..Both machines are great reliable machines. With cards I think thats a fair price.

One of my favorite sites for reading sewing machine reviews is http://sewing.patternreview.com/SewingMachine/Reviews/

When you click into the model you want to read about which brings up the first review, note that below the title there is a link called "# more reviews for this machine" so you can see more.

Thanks everyone!  I know the machine is in great condition, as I know my friend kept it wonderfully!  Also, it has sat about 15 years, not being used, but I know my DH could get it going it need be.  Thanks for the link Nancy.  Will check that out!

Love my 8000!   The price is about what I was asking when I up graded to a newer machine.  However, I sold another model and kept this one as the back up.  Did the price include the cloth setter and other accessories?

I have a 9000, it's a great machine. I've had mine about 10 years, and have never had a problem.
