I am so hopeful. I've had an old janome memory craft 9000 my hubby got for me many years ago. tried to use it, not much success yet. hopefully this will really help. Company doesn't support it anymore. Kinda ticked about that, as it was a substantial investment. Having a full time job really hindered my ability to give this unit the time and attention when the kids were small. Now I finally have the time - but no support, till now. Hope to hook up with others who have this unit.
