Hi Liz, I have the Janome 10000 machine purchased earlier this year after SUFFERING many years with brother machines, I had a top of the range super galaxie that was nothing but trouble and in at the dealers more than it was out, as a sewing machine it was superb but it never stitched out a perfect embroidery design in its life, they blamed everything from backings, threads and user error and the problems never did get sorted out. In contrast I got the bottom of the range 180D bought it second hand and that stitched everything the other machine had never managed to stitch with the same backing and threads. you are so right about lacking back up. There is quite simply no comparision with the brother and Janome. I find Its so much more conveniant to have the embroidery facility built in no more pulling out bulky embroidery beds from whatever storage place you have for them. switching over to embroidery is simply pressing a button and changing the foot. you can get the designs to the machine by ata card by means of compact flash /card adaptor and a card writer if you have a desktop pc ( you wouldnt need it if you have a laptop) in the UK costs less than 20 quid, no special software is needed to do this.
My dealer may still be able to locate an ex demo model if you are in the UK ( £1000 off the price) hes a great dealer and gives excellent backup which is important

Thanks I have been trying to locate first choice and I wonder if it is 1st choice as I am interested in one of his machines if there are any left. There were some advertised in Sewing World but there is no guarantee and £2,600 is a lot to spend without any software. Liz

is MOST DEFINATLY too much for the machine, you have seen onoffer the offer of the £1000 reduction was actually a janome offerwhich should have been passed onto the customer by the dealer!Also the machine should carry the usual guarantee.

If you are only looking for an embroidery machine and still have your other machine to do normal sewing why not look at the new Janome 300E. I have just bought that at a fraction of the price of the 10000 and still use my other machine for normal sewing. MG

I had considered that, but I only have a little PE300S which I take away with me in the caravan and I love it. I am due to replace all my curtains this year and also make clothes for myself and my family so a bigger machines is very useful. I must say I like the look of the 300E, do you like it. Liz

Thanks for your help. I have been in touch with lst choice and they responded very quickly with price and offered a 2 year guarantee. The salesman is not there until tomorrow and I am going to ring him up. I do wish I could make my mind up and I am trying to get a demo somewhere locally. I may persuade hubby to take over to Suffolk for the day!!! Liz

Hi Liz, I dont think you will ever look back if you go to the Janome,
The ex dem machine price through the dealer is actually less than I have seen second hand machines advertised for..... not that you ever see as many of them as the brother machines. If you are considering the embroidery only machine then the Janome 300E is a fantastic buy as it has the large stitch area, you get designs to the machine by the ata card the same as the 10000 machine. I bought my 10000 before the 300E was launched, I think if I was doing it all again I would have still gone for the 10000 machine.
I had a top of the range(at the time years ago) Super Galixie that found it impossible to do a perfect stitch out, I got terrible support from our other dealer in town ! in contrast last year I bought a second hand pe180D and that didnt stitch too bad, I then got my Janome machine and my only regret is that I didnt buy the memory craft all those years ago when I bought the super galaxie, the brother machine won then because there was a lot more dresign cards available at the time for the brother machines!
would you have far to go to come to Suffolk for the day? Ipswich isnt bad for shopping. the car parks in town are very expensive and packed if you did come over, just a tip especially at this time of year, it would be advisable to park in a park and ride, especially as you would be some time in the shop having a demonstration on the machine.
