After much consultation with my husband, he agreed that I needed a new sewing machine. I searched at my local sewing machine store...not to be critical but I walked in and stood there for at least 30 minutes and not one person came up to me to ask me if I needed help or anything. I walked up and down the aisles looking at all of the machines and writing down prices. Eventually, the gentleman who services the machines came up and asked if I needed help. Needless to say, he tried to sell me a used machine. It was tempting but I did look at it and liked it. It was a Janome Horizon 7700. I just want to add that this store is known for its bad service. You can ask most sewers here in Sacramento and most of them will agree with me.
I searched the internet to see if I could find a new one to purchase. I started calling different merchants and decided to purchase the Janome New Home MC 7700 QCP.
