Janome has recently released it’s latest Horizon 8900 Q C P. When it’s release was announced apparently many quilters began to form a line.
They have gotten the bugs out from the Horizon 8200 Q C, which some quilters had noticed, and apparently the corporation did as well. While making the changes they, beefed it up as well.
I had the 8200 QC, when I brought home the 8900 QCP I was quick to make comparisons between the two machines. My initial reaction?
I Love it!!! From the moment I took my first stitch, I felt a noticeable difference. For one thing, it purred, it hummed The motor seemed so smooth.
I liked the stitch quality. It now has 2 easy to change needle plates, one for regular stitching, the other for free motion quilting. No more silly screws to unscrew and re screw, and drop several times in the clumsy process, if you’re a butterfingers, like myself. Just pull a latch and up pops that needle plate, bim bam boom. Easy!
The previous model’s slider thingy[ a very technical term ] in the one needle plate, which changed from regular sewing to free-motion was problematic to say the least. As I mentioned it’s been replaced with a very convenient solution.
I like the way the free motion quilting went, it seemed that the fabric movement was smoother, don’t ask me how this could be accomplished, but it was my impression.
I like the idea of the jog dial, it would be a nice little convenience, although I have not used it as yet. So my initial impressions are very favorable thus far.” I like it a lot”.
How about you? If you have any thoughts, share your impressions with us.
