Sheri A.:
I needed a travel machine

Oh Sheri I am soooo jealous.  I was going to buy this baby at the Lancaster AQS show from the dealer who sold me my Horizon but couldn't justify it. She is such a great machine.  Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!

Susan :
Mimi, How do you like your Horizon?

I love my Horizon.  I had the 6500 and the 6600 before and traded up each time Janome upgraded.  I was a little hesitant to switch from the 6600 to the Horizon as the 6600 is in a metal casing and the Horizon is plastic.  But to have the extra 2 inches in the harp space, the beautiful blanket stitch and stitch #93 that looks like hand quilting sold it for me.  But everyone has to decide for themselves what they want and need in a machine.  And cost wasn't an issue before. It would be now.  Enjoy dreaming about your new machine.  Let us know what you decide.

Sherri, have fun with your new toy, I have the Horizon and love it.  I've been part of the Janome family for 8 - 10 years now and never had a problem.

Thanks again, everyone!  Someone resurrected this post but I'll update and tell you that I've been using this as my travel machine for 2 months now and have been very happy with it.  

I bought the 6600 in August and liked it so much that I wanted a lighter machine that offered some of the same features.  I got spoiled with programmable needle up/down and the automatic cutter.  A bonus is that the feet fit both machines.

Hi Sheri, Ijust searched all over for the pic of your new machine Janome finally found it .  How is it working out for you?  I'm looking again at machines in the midst of everything thats been going on.

It's been great.  I take it to my Quilts for Kids group every week because it's so light.  It's the reason I bought it.  My other 2 machines are too heavy to travel with.  Another member of our group just bought the same machine after using the demo model at the store for a few weeks.  She seems happy with her's, too.
