Re: New owner janome 12000
When I purchased my 12000 in February at a deep discount, I asked the dealer if he was discounting it so much because Janome was planning to release a new model, and he flat out said no. Of course, I pretty much knew that he was either misleading me or was in the dark (not likely) but I got my machine at half off with the software and this machine has many more capabilities that I think I might ever be able to master, so I am happy with my purchase even if I am having to reconfigure the top of my sewing cabinet from using my 6600P. It is a small inconvenience to deal with.

I work for an LQS and the owner mentioned nothing about a new machine coming out at out any time soon. I remember when the 6500 was replaced by the 6600 and the owner was informed when ordering a 6500 and couldn’t and had to order a 6600. New machines are big business and the longer they can keep the new models under wraps, they can get rid of any existing stock at normal prices and not discounting them. It’s marketing pure and simple!
Sorry about your purchase. I got burned on the 6500/6600 deal!
I am very disappointed that my dealer did not advise me of the suspected new machine coming out. I just bought mine about 2 weeks ago. I am very upset as I went from a Viking Designer 1 to the 12000,. The only reason I did it was because of the USB issue but I paid close to the same amount of money and did not receive software. Big bummer.
