Janome Horizon 7700QCP
- Product Review (submitted on October 31, 2013):
I have considered other sewing machine brands but the Janome 7700 Horizon I felt was far more superior. The resumption setting for me is a wonderful feature because it enables the machine to re-start with the last settings I had been using. While it can be turned off, I prefer leaving it on. When I sew with the acufeed walking foot on, and having adjusted the needle position appropriately, I can always find the machine where I left it even after turning it off. Despite having read some reviews complaining about the acufeed, I find it hard to agree with them because it requires very little effort; similar to changing feet. The effort is worth it because you will get excellent results. The lighting features are wonderful too.
Some brands have an extension table available for purchase as an extra, but the Janome 7700 comes with the extension table. The accessories are priced competitively, and can be added to your collection as newer projects come along even if you do not need them in the beginning. In general, this machine is of superior quality, very practical but a little pricey. The competing brands in that price range do not even come close.
