Wanna Buy a 6600?

So did you notice that machine and sewing table in my studio? Well they're both new too. At QuiltCon a local Texas sewing machine shop stocked all of the classrooms with brand new Janomes and the machines were available for sale at a tremendous discount. And when I say tremendous I mean way too good to pass up. Yep. I bought a Horizon. Eeek! And my 6600 is less than a year old. 


I justified the purchase because I got the machine and a sewing table for about the same price of my 6600. And I didn't have to pay for shipping or tax. It was a steal. I had been looking at the Horizon last year but I couldn't stomach the price tag. 


Now, I need to sell Hepburn. I love her so much. She's an amazing machine but it's the only way I can justify the upgrade to the Horizon. Anyone in the market for a gently used, one year old Janome 6600?


  1. I could be interested. How much are you looking to get for it?

  2. Nice steal! Look at that foot pedal! It's huge!

  3. I did exactly the same thing. I have a 6600 which I love..only a few years old and was tempted by the 8900 but not willing to pay up...then I found that the Quilt Con price was still available even though I could not go. Now I have both machines.!! Cannot bear to get rid of the 6600, but I did give my sister my Bernina....I am a Janome woman now.

  4. yay for your sweet 8900! looks like she has been getting good use! hope you have been able to sell your 6600 :)
