Enjoying the new machine

It was a breeze quilting on a small piece that will be made into a bag. Love that AccuFeed on the Janome 6600p. No more clunky noise as with a walking foot. In combination with the knee lift, the AccuFeed made quilting on the small piece easy. The small piece wasn’t big enough to test out the capabilities of the wide arm area.

1167The arm area is soooo wide, I can keep my small pincushion nearby as I sew.

1168This machine has a presser foot lifter that lifts the foot to a normal height and then you can lift it higher than normal – an “extra lift” position. That came in mighty handy when I was sewing on a zipper. When I came to the zipper tab, I did not have to finagle around the zipper tab to slide it into a different position. I was very happy with that.

So glad you are happy with your new machine. It looks real nice. We all need more room to push that quilt through.

Your new machine has it all!
Glad to hear the special feed works so more add-on boxy even-feed thing!
The extra high lift is good, and who can't use more room....even for a small project???
I would be totally envious, but I cannot think of anyone who deserves this great machine more than you!

Wow! this looks like my dream machine! I have a Janome which I love dearly, & will never be able to afford one like yours, but what a joy for quiltmakers!!
