Amazon sells the SideWinder new for about $23 with free Prime shipping...not sure what shipping cost would be without Prime, but they often have additional sellers with new and used products. Just scroll down a little bit in the ad and look for the link, if there is one.  If you don’t have Prime, maybe a family member would order it on your behalf and have it shipped to you as a gift item.  Depending on where you live, there might be tax as well.  

Not sure what your price range is, but I have seen people trying to sell them for anywhere between about $10 and I think the top price was over $300...maybe $324 or so on eBay...many with what seems to be exorbitant shipping costs, too. I hardly ever look at eBay any more because of stuff like that last. Lol. You really need to know the product and value to shop eBay anymore, it seems. 

You might even catch a sale / coupon at Joann’s and get a decent price...they have had 50% and 60% off coupons that I have used at Joann’s and at Michael’s. Sure whittled down the costs of some (overly?) pricey items for me. Just make sure what is excluded from the coupon, though. 

This is ‘Year End Sales’ time at online businesses, so you might want to check out coupons/coupon codes, discounts, and sale prices there as well. 

Could be you’ll need a ‘Sherlock Holmes adventure’ to find what you want at the price you think is right. Lol

I’ve enjoyed each morning seeing a post on this forum from someone/somewhere who were alway ready to help with our quilting and embroidery issues. A BIG thanks to Jim and Diane for bringing us together through the magic of technology. Wishing you all a happy new year.

My New Years resolution, it’s to make sure I sew as often as I can.  To make lots of lovely and useful things, both sewn and embroidered.  It’s gonna be a tough one to keep but I will try.

Re: Annual service on 15k

I have never paid extra for service on any embroidery unit. That is a part of the machine and not an extra unit on Janome. I would get a second opinion.

When I take my 11000 for service, the embroidery unit is not removable so they look at the embroidery function as well as the sewing functions.  So, it never occurred to me not to take the embroidery unit with my 15000...in its protective case, of course.  Although removable on my 15000, the embroidery unit is part of the machine 'as sold standard' and 'spec'd' by the manufacturer, and it seems to me that it should be included in the annual service.

If I took ONLY the embroidery unit...not the rest of the 15000, or if the embroidery unit was an 'option' purchased separately (I have seen at least one model from a different manufacurer where the embroidery unit was an optional accessory), I could easily understand making a separate service appointment and/or separate charge.

To be honest, I don't know if my dealer charges separately for the machine and the embroidery unit, but I understand the additional monetary issue, too, since your dealer charges additionally to service the embroidery unit. 

If your embroidery unit is working fine, but the service cost is inconvenient for you at this time, it would certainly be your option to have it serviced now or wait for a more convenient time for you and your budget.

I have my 15000 and the embroidery unit serviced together every year.  Worth the money.

I have my Horizon Memory Craft 15000 serviced annually.  This year I was asked if I wanted the embroidery unit serviced also.  Just wondering whether that is a good idea and if others have them serviced.  I have had no problems but I do a lot of embroidery and regular sewing so many hours are utilized.  Appreciate your opinion before spending and extra $50.00  unnecessarily?  Thanks


Re: Annual service on 15k

I would do it, I had thread wound around the gears of mine and it quit working. Now 8 need a whole new unit. Had I known it could have been serviced, it may have saved me a lot of money.

I have the Simplicity brand bobbin winder and don't recommend it. I never use it and it takes up storage space!
