Now you all know that I am a Bernina girl…. and here I am writing a post about a Janome!! Yes, I have been under the weather, but no, I have not gone crazy and bought a Janome… but one of my beginners has, and I thought I’d share her joy with you!
It happens to me all the time – my beginners turn up with a cheap machine and we spend half our time trying to get the tension right and the machine working. I tell them they need a better machine.. and of course they ask me which one?
I of course say Bernina 🙂 But knowing that not everyone can afford a Bernina, my second suggestion is Janome. Those two are also the ones we can get parts and service for here… back in Australia there are way more machines to chose from…. which possibly makes the decision even harder.
So two of my beginners had been researching prices and asking around for second hand ones… and both of them scored last week! One of them got a second hand Bernina, and the other got a second hand Janome! Both got very good deals and I am so happy for them (and slightly jealous!)
I was there for the unboxing of the Janome…
The box said it was the 7700 QCP….
But when we got it out, we saw that it was a higher model – the 8900 QCP, even better!
Sooo many stitches to choose from!
It also came with the extension table…
And it didn’t take long for it to be set up on the table to test…
Now if I were to buy a Janome… this is the model I would buy. It sews beautifully, and her new owner is very happy with it!
So, I’d like to know… are you brand loyal? What is your favorite brand? Or favorite brands?
