I’m Just Looking…

That’s all I was doing… just looking.

I wandered into the local Janome / Pfaff Sewing Machine Shop this weekend to poke around and check out the shop.

I have been considering getting another machine – something I can leave down at the quilt shop to use.

I usually use the owners Pfaff when I sew at the shop – but I end up changing out the thread and bobbins because we work on different projects and use different stuff. 

So I thought maybe I’d go in to the sewing machine shop and see what they had in a used machine…

Somebody should have told me that wasn’t a good idea.

They had a couple used Janome 6500’s that were in really, really good shape.  Those caught my eye because of the large work area for quilting.  And they had a 6600 that had just come in as a trade in… that model has the even feed foot built in.

So I talked, and tested, and thought, and, and, and…

Janome 6600

In the end I decided it wasn’t a good idea to go and look… because the 6600 is now a new (to me) machine.  I’ll keep it at the house and take my Viking down to the quilt shop to use.  Maybe now I’ll get busy on some of the quilting I need to do.

Just looking… yeah – they must hear that all the time!

GOOD JOB, Cheryl!!

Wonderful machine. I've been staring at Jenome's for a long time. The only thing I don't care for, about them, (and, I really mean the ONLY!) is the drop-in bobbin. Have a blast with it!
