I'm in the market for a new Janome machine. I currently have a QE4800 that I love but want new features.    I like the 6600P and the 7700qcp.  Any ideas or help?  Is there a machine in between these two models?

Hi Barbara, I have the 7700 and love it.  There is none between the 6600 and it but there is two, I believe, after the 7700.  A few others also have the 7700 so I'll let them speak for themselves.

No quilterbarbara, Marie is right.  The 6500 didn't have the attached walking foot.  The 6600 had the attached foot and 9 inch harp.  The 7700 came next and had the automatic changeable needle plate and an 11 inch harp as well as the attached walking foot. The newest one ( I think 8800 or 8900) without embroidery no longer offers the automatic needle plate but does come with two needle plates. One for straight stitching and one for fancy and zig zag stitching.  You pop them out with a special button.  I love my 7700 and probably will keep her until I'm blind or can't sew anymore.
