had obviously never asked a quilter!!
I have been lusting after a Janome Horizon, with it's 11 whole inches worth of space on the right, for a few years. I just couldn't quite justify spending that amount on a sewing machine, when there was nothing wrong with the one I owned.
Then I saw that they had bought out a 'budget' model, with pretty much all the same features and a few upgrades. The more reasonable price and it being my birthday tomorrow, was all the incentive I needed to get myself over to my local sewing machine shop. I managed to get a really good deal trading in my Juki and came home with this beauty today.
|Janome Horizon 8200 QC|
This machine is an absolute monster! I can't get over how quiet it is even at full pelt, which was the first thing hubby commented on. It has a million and one feet, including 3 options for the FMQ foot and brilliant walking foot.
The only gutting think is that my old sewing machine cover doesn't fit it, guess I will just have to make another ;-)
I will do a proper review once I have had a chance to play around with it.
