I can’t believe I’m actually typing out these words: I BOUGHT A NEW SEWING MACHINE!!!!!!

Here it is – the Janome Memory Craft 7700 QCP.

Janome 7700 qcp sewing machine wide onAs many sewers and quilters had recommended to me, I purchased my new machine from a Janome dealership in the Atlanta area. It seems to be retailing in the neighborhood of $2,500 online and in physical stores. My deal included three years of free labor and three free tune-ups.

I did have a few hiccups with the machine. Out of the box, it was missing two parts – the “A” Zigzag foot and the Large Spool Cap. I have called the dealership and explained the situation, and hopefully they will provide replacement parts the next time I’m there.

Once I get acclimated with the machine, I will do a follow-up review post to share my experiences.

See you next time!
