Janome Horizon Review: Update, Quilting-Get Started (123)

Welcome back to Val’s Quilting where I fill you in on all the exciting stuff that’s happening…

First off, update for those of you who’ve left comments, advice, feedback on my challenges with Janome Canada (thank you so much!). I’ve had several email conversations with the CEO of Janome Canada as well as heard back from Jim Findlay (while he is on holidays)…I still haven’t heard back from the CEO or anyone from the warranty department about where I take my machine with this amazing 2 years full coverage warranty for warranty work? And they will not return my machine….

here’s a picture of the fix we came up with for the wiggly feet, we’ve put a piece of tape on the edge of the shaft to provide some cushioning when the foot snaps in to make it nice and secure – it works!!

I’ve been sewing on it quite a bit over the last week and getting more used to the differences and the new options. Still have some quirks that I need to get used to…Any suggestions about the Janome that you can give me I’d appreciate it very much:) Looks like I’m stuck with it so I might as well start liking it 😉

So, I’ll keep you posted on whatever else I hear.

I finished my Quilting – Get Started Quilt and I’m so happy with the way it turned out!! 

I quilted each block slightly different

the Oak Leaf’s: raw edge applique, block 4,  I tied

The Dresden Plate, needle turn applique, block 3, I ecco quilted

  1. Valerie, if you’re not already a member of the Janome 7700 group on Yahoo, please consider joining. I’ve been a member of the Janome 6500/6600 group there for several years and the 7700 group is a new companion group. There are lots of knowledgeable and helpful people. The 6500/6600 group was a lifesaver at times as I got used to my new 6600. It’s helpful to be able to "hang out" with people who are familiar with all the little quirks of particular machines.

    (I don’t have a 7700, but I’m considering getting one. I don’t NEED one and I’m not doing much sewing right now, but I love my 6600 and the extra throat space and lighting on the 7700 and the built-in storage for feet, etc., are among the appealing features. I’m just not sure they’re $3000 appealing <wry grin>.)

  2. Never mind. I had a chance today to read through more of your blog and see that you’ve been a member of both groups.
