Does this machine exist?

Recommended Posts

I had and older Janome 6600P with a knee lift. When I got my new machine, the dealer only offered $500 as a trade-inso I gave it to my granddaughter. You may have to go a little higher than $400.

This from my local Janome retailer who takes in pre-owned machines.   This is in Central Iowa.

"The least expensive Janome with a knee lift is over $1000."

Check your smaller flea market sewing machine repair/dealers.  You may find a older and smaller machine with a knee lift.  

Depending on the type of sewing/quilting you are doing, you may wish to also get a machine that stops with the needle in either the up or down position.  


May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….

I just checked, and there are a couple of Bernina 830 Records with knee lifts for sale on e-Bay in your price range.  Old machines ('80's manufacture dates).  I have one, and it's been a good machine, made in Switzerland.  You might take a look.  Jim
