My sewing-related spending binge has continued unchecked (this is REALLY IT for a while ever) and later today I shall be taking delivery of a Janome 6600P - how exciting is that! I decided a little while ago that maybe it was time to upgrade from my sweet but very basic J3-20 - I think this will be a giant leap... it obviously has about a million more features than I need or will probably ever use, but I am so looking forward to playing with it when it arrives. I did a fair bit of research on the internet and joined a Janome6600p-specific Yahoo group (!), and also went in to Peter Jones on Oxford Street to have a test drive (though I have to admit I didn't buy it from there but from a great UK based site which had £200 off the RRP) - I was amazed at how smooth and quiet it was - and (this might not be the right word) sure-footed! Aside from all the wizzy stitches it can do, the quality of the straight stitch was great and am pretty excited about this whole Accu-feed thing it has going on (supposed to make sewing different stuff together easier). I read that Sew-cial Butterfly is also waiting for the exact same machine to be delivered!
No doubt I will be overwhelmed by the instruction manual - but SO looking forward to making stuff with this!
Anyone else have one of these machines and have any experiences (good or bad) to share??
