Here she is. My Darling Husband suggested a trip to Sewing World so we could do some research on machines. They have many machines all set up with scrap fabrics so I tried out a couple of Janome. This beauty was 1/2 price (though I think the original price was inflated) and was $150 less than what it seemed to be selling on eBay and other online retailers so we purchased on the spot. Obviously, buying locally also means I’ll have local assistance and I feel good supporting those wonderful women. They actually give a hug with machine purchases. Isn’t that cute?
In case you can’t see in the photo she is a Janome 4120 QDC. She has a built-in thread cutter, a stupid amount of stitches, including the alphabet (?), and came with a table attachment. Great for quilting but should also be nice to hold some projects.
