    I am leaning toward a Janome....now if I can just visit a dealer within 100 miles (tricky!) that will be open during these strange times...

        I have a Janome and I love it. It's about 10 years old and I had one prior to that which I gave to my daughter. I've not had any problems with it in that time although usage was low until I retired last year.

          Well, I thought I would post an update... Last weekend I was visiting my grandmother, and she really wanted to get out of the house. With all of this social distancing, she had only seen a couple of people. She lives in a VERY rural part of Montana, so you could say she already practices social distancing without trying, but I digress. We went to a town about 150 miles away, which, to my delight had a Janome dealer. I spent far more time in the sewing machine shop than I intended-with Grams patiently sitting by. (no one in my family sews but me)
          Well, after literally walking around the block, in an attempt to not make an impulse decision, I purchased a Janome Memory Craft 6700P. I had drooled over this machine on the internet, and with the special financing, I bit the bullet and exceeded my budget.
          I work long hours and haven't had a chance to actually use it yet, but I did get it set up and am eagerly anticipating several projects which I have lined up! Thanks again for all of your input!

            I'm curious where in Montana as well. I spent 5 winters in NE at Glasgow AFB. That was a long time ago. The base closed when they discharged me! LOL

            I had the 6600 for several years and then got the 7700. Main difference was the free arm. Absolutely no complaints or problems with either. Well, except that I wore out a foot pedal that I replaced.

          It was meant to be. Congratulations!
