Hi, I am Cathy also from the UK.
I have been an owner of Janome machines for nearly 30 years and I absolutely love them. I also decided to up-grade from my MC11000SE to the new Horizon 12000 at the launch show this month.
I have asked for my new machine to be delivered next Friday so I am really looking forward to trying out this new model.
I have been using the Horizon 7700 as well but have now sold that to help finance the 12000.
I live in the South East of the UK and hope some of the other UK owners may live reasonably near.
Many thanks for starting this group,
