    New and Improved Version!

    So, I've been having some issues with my Janome 7700, causing me to fall out of love with it. Generally, I love its features, the Accufeed, wide throat, great buttonholer ( when you have to make hundreds of buttonholes on dozens of costumes, you NEED that feature!). But, i was losing confidence in my machine, not the brand
    So, my machine dealer made me an offer I couldn't refuse, and here is my new 8900, ready to be put into action.

    image.jpgLooks so similar! Even the red faceplate, which I loved!

    Some new and improved features, too!

    Faceplate pops off, no screwdriver needed! Two faceplates, one for regular sewing, one for FMQing.

    Extra large foot pedal! Love this, I was going to order one for my old machine!

    New improved Dual Feed foot and SITD foot

    And a partridge in a pear tree! ( Jinny Beyer Batik Pixie Strips from RJR, which they just opened the box of while I was in the store! I couldn't resist!?)

    It's going to be a fun night!

    Insert for my table will be coming soon, the old one wouldn't fit this machine.

        I went to my sewing center to look at the 8900 and a Brother Dream Creator followed me home. I love mine, hope you love yours as much.

            Congratulations, Jean. I bought one at MQX in Portland last October. I have been sewing up a storm on it.

              yes, I can go with that! It is Candy Apple Red to me! Yummy!
              I was at that Expo. But the 8900 wouldn't qualify for carry on luggage, so I had to buy local!

                  That is one of the machines I have been lusting after. It is sooooo pretty! Has some sweet decorative stitches too!

                  Have fun!

                      I got my Memory Craft 8900 last Feb and really like this one. Mine don't have the red on it but it looks the same as yours.
                      Congrats on your new baby.

                          T - is it TRUE?
                          H - is it HELPFUL?
                          I - is it INSPIRING?
                          N - is it NECESSARY?
                          K - is it KIND?

                            Well done, Jean!! Sounds like this machine has all the right bells and whistles. Give us an update when you get going with it. I am interested to know what you think.

                              Having just taken off a faceplate, I envy the pop up feature.
