I was at Habermans Fabrics in Royal Oak, Michigan, and wandered over to the sewing repair shop inside the store. I saw several old machines for sale behind the counter, but one in particular entranced me, and the repairman kindly took it down and showed me all the features and demonstrated the use of the cams for decorative stitching. I was smitten, and despite the fact that I already have several machines, decided I couldn't live without this little beauty. It followed me home and hopped right up onto my sewing table.

I looked through the entire Janome review section without finding a single reference to this particular model. I would love to learn more about the age and history of this machine.

Hi! Did you manage to find out more about the machine? I just bought a Janome 672 from a local repair shop, too! Would you mind terribly if I shamelessly ask for pictures of your lovely 673?
