I bought the Janome 11000 machine about 2 years ago I. I think it is a great machine, the embroidery is just fantastic and very easy to learn, I did have the Janome 10001 before and traded up to the Janome 11000 very pleased I did because it has quite a few extra features and it is wider in the sewing area. I have just finished making a embroidery quilt that has 32 different embrodiered and appliqued squares plus a border all around and another 6 squares plus a border both sides to bring down to cover the pillows. I made everthing on my machine including a lot of pieces of lace for it as well. Im sure that anyone that has one would also tell you how great they are. Good Luck Hope this helps Regards Dixie
Thanks Dixie. I now have the machine and have completed my first embroidery, and as you say it's a great machine. I'v also used the sewibg side of it and thats great too.
Many thanks for your input.
