Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
I am thinking of buying a used embroidery machine because I can't afford a new one. I am undecided on which one to buy, Bernina 180E or Janome MC10000. Other than the question of stitch quality, the maintenance fee is also a concern. The Bernina machines and accessories are very expensive here in Canada and so are the maintenance service charges, not many dealer in town as well. On the other hand the accessories of Janome seems to be more reasonable and have at least two major dealer in town. What I have heard is Bernina 180E is a better machine. Can you give me some insight on these two machines? I also want to know whether the Kenmore 19100 is the same as the Janome MC-10000? Thank you in advance for your help.
I have the Janome 10001 and I love it. I have thousands of designs and they are easily accessible on-line and I can download the designs onto my flash card quickly and the cards were relatively easy to find.
I have just purchased a 180E Bernina. I have heard it is a much better machine and Bernina does have a wonderful reputation and is supposed to be the best there is. I have found that the dealers near London Ontario are not customer service oriented. I attended a store and am still waiting for someone to phone me back with information. I did email Bernina on-line and they have been exceptionally helpful and willing to offer suggestions, and information and solutions. The dealer just north of London was not even interested in helping me at all and basically blew me off. I think once you find a reliable dealer you are ok. If you get either of these machines, email me and I can help you with whatever you need to get up and running. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am currently moving so have not got the Bernina set up right now. ONce I get it going and use it for a while I can give you a better idea of which one is better. I might just keep both but not sure.
