New Machine


Well I did it. Today I went out and bought my new machine! Now I just have to wait until Wed. to pick it up...the dealer sold his last one on Saturday and needs to order it. Because today is a holiday, the overnight delivery won't come until Wednesday. Bahh...I want it yesterday! LOL.
After looking at a few things and visiting a couple of dealers, I decided to buy the Janome 6600. Of course Janome is one of the few brands that 'my' sewing machine dealer doesn't sell, but a bunch of my friends have bought their machines from Warren so I feel conident that he will be a good go-to guy for my new machine.
I got a good price, and he threw in a rolling tote case for the machine and five years of free service. I can bring the machine in for cleaning, adjustment and repair as many times as I want for five whole years (and we all know how much a regular cleaning and tune up costs!), for no charge, and I even get free parts. He also says I can get as many one-on-one lessons as I want or need.
Now I am on cloud nine, and I am looking forward to a lot of sewing later this week!!

I have this machine-I like it a lot, however my dealer had a teacher who knew next to nothing about it! major bummer! Sounds like you got a wonderful deal with 5 years of service etc. I am sure you are going to love it and it quilts great too.

I hope you enjoy your Janome 6600 as much as I'm enjoying mine. I didn't get quite the deal you did, though. I bought mine at Festival in Houston and do not have anyone nearby to service it. Will have to travel to get it done. Oh well..it's worth it!
