Well, You are a first for me. Janome 6300. I have never met anyone that really liked their Janome. They always seem to be well not to happy. I am glad you like it. I have never had but one other machine, besides Singer. I bought it reconditioned. I should never have purchased the brand reconditioned. All the others I know, swear by their Bernina's and Brother's and Babylocks. I have never even set down to try one of those. So, glad to know you like your machine.
