I have been traveling around the Canadian Prairies for the last 10 days promoting our wonderful NEW Janome products this Fall. WOW! Are people loving the NEW Janome MC6700 or what? No mistake in the words in our ads: SIT. SEW. FALL IN LOVE. Everywhere I go, people sit down at the machine, sew a bit and tell me they love it and want it! I arrived at Haus of Stitches in Saskatchewan where Ron Collins ( one of our Janome Canada Artisans) was finishing off a 3 day Sewing Retreat. I was no sooner in the door, than both he and Wendy (owner of Haus of Stitches) were telling me that Ron had fallen in love! He already sews on several of our Janome machines but he told me that the Janome MC6700 is the machine for him. He totally loves the feel and sound of it, the extra space and the way it stitches. He stitched out all the buttonholes and eyelets on a piece of linen fabric and was super impressed with the stitch quality. He says it sews beautifully – and he is “in love”! I had many people at both the Creativ Festival shows in Edmonton and Calgary asking about the machine and wanting to see it.
I sat and sewed at the machine before I left home for this trip and think I’m in love too + 2 of our Janome Canada Educators are in love and want this machine!!
Remember our classic models the Janome MC6500P and MC6600P? These models sold over 100,000 units in North America!

I sat in on one of your demos of this machine. I fell in love. But I also like the 6600 and 8200. How to choose how to choose.
What a lovely problem to have?!
I sat, I sewed, I fell in Love. I am so impressed with the Acufeed Flex foot and the 10″ of space that I am excited to quilt my next quilt on one of these machines.
