My 6500 is 17 years old and I still use it almost everyday. It has only needed service once 15 years ago.
It is a true workhorse and I love it for piecing, dress making, and home décor.

I had a 6500 and ran it into the ground! It took a while! Any 6500s out there now are used and the 6600 and 6700 have replaced that model. The older 6600s are a lot better than the 6500s.

Good to hear and thank you for responding. Do you use it for machine quilting? That's the main reason I wanted another machine - because the Kenmore was just being strained to its max. I'm hoping this 6500 is a bit sturdier. Anyway, I'm a slow quilter - producing a quilt or two every year or two. I'm also elderly so I'm more methodocial and careful. I've just installed the even feed foot yesterday and it worked great on a sampler quilt I'm using for testing. I'm about to install the darning/quilting foot and see how it performs on free motion quilting. Any tips you may give me would be most appreciated.
