I am a big time believer in Janome
sewing machines. Janome machines are work horses that just don't quit. I have 3 Janome machines - at least I did until now! I read about the new Horizon 7700 and just had to get one. I sold my Janome 6500P on Craig's List; traded in my Janome 6600P for the new Janome Horizon 7700. It is a beautiful machine with 11" x 4.7" of work space to the right of the needle - oh my!! The machine is too big to fit into my existing sewing cabinet, so I had a new one built and gave the old one away.
I ordered a set of k-legs from Westchester Sewing Machine Co.
The grey legs are perfect for my studio space - very industrial! (My dear husband, Richard, assembled the k-legs.) We called Jim Hall of Creative Cabinetry Corp. in Ft. Myers, FL to fashion a 20x60 formica piece for the table top. Jim then cut a 12x27 rectangle in the top and made a shelf (using the cutout) to hold the new sewing machine. (The new table setup cost approximately $225 - a good deal less than sewing tables I've seen on line which are much shorter in width.)
The metal drawer units are from Ikea. I store thread, machine accessories, etc. here.
One of the many features I like about the 7700 is the free arm. We placed the acrylic table top that came with the machine (sans legs) over the cutout. I simply remove the acrylic table top when I need to utilize the free arm - a real time saver. Before I had to haul out another sewing machine to do free arm sewing.
I just love my new set up and am looking forward to learning all the new features of the 7700. This is going to be sew much fun!
