Any idea of MSRP? I may have to make a call and see if my local dealer has a demo.

Looks like these are the Elna versions of the Janome Horizon 12000 and 9900.

Maia, I was wondering about the Janomes. I found that Elnas add a few extra things; of course their price tag is a bit more than the Janomes too. This looks like a nice machine!

Janome makes Elnas so basically it's the same machine.

And GM makes Chevys and Cadillacs.

What difference does it make?

Buy what you like.

I saw the short bed version of that machine (the 860) - at a janome dealer. I thought it was interesting they have a market for a short bed computerized machine.. Maybe its sorta like a match to the 580. It comes with embroidery and a 9 mm stitch.
