Hi,
I have a Janome 300e, and it is a good machine but I have found that I am doing more and more machine embroidery (both for myself and to sell) and the 300e sees very slow. I want a multi needle machine, but alas, my budget and space won't stretch to that so I want to add and extra machine and then be able to run them both at the same time.
I have found a Janome 10000 for sale second hand- it comes with 4 hoops and a pile of extras, so it looks like a good deal.... But is it a decent machine to buy? I am a bit cautious about buying such an old machine, so what do you all say, to buy or not to buy?

That Janome with the exception of the color screen doesn't add any more embroidery capability. It uses the same hoops and the biggest hoop is 5 x 7 it has the giga hoop but that's for placement it still won't do any design larger then 5 x 7. Not sure what they are asking for it but anything over $1,000 is much. I have a 10001 that replaced the 10000 and that's ten years old. The only thing you are gaining is a sewing machine. That's not to say it's not a good machine it's is but it's dated and the technology is behind although still very usable imho. I don't plan on parting with my 10001 anytime soon. The main issue is which the customize software. Since the machine is discontinued the software wasn't updated. However you might be able to use your 300 software in you indeed purchased it. Otherwise you can use Embird it will read and write to a flash card. These and the adapters or them are readily available on ebay.

Just to clarify- I am not looking to increase the size of embroidery, rather to speed up the process buy using two machines at once. I sew kids clothes and use a lot of different little embroideries and it is very time consuming does that make sense???

Yes this would certainly suit your purposes. Since you already have the stuff needed for it since you have a 300. The 10001 is an awesome sewing machine. That's why I haven't updated I really don't do anything bigger then 5 x 7 so it suits my needs just fine. It's currently getting it's spa treatment and I'm missing it.

If you have a chance to see the machine in person to determine how well it runs and how used it actually is. Your 300E was based on the technology of the 10000: it has a color screen, more editing features, uses the same compact flash cards/design format/hoops. The customizer software is very basic but allows you to print templates, see designs and send multiple designs to CF card. Learning curve would also be minimal due to similarity to the machine you have. Janome makes their machines and you can still gets parts for the machine.

I have the 10001 that I purchased used apr 3 years ago. It's a very nice sewing machine and does nice embroidery. When I looked at them new they were over $6000 in Canada. I did a review of all the features/ technology, sewing ability.

Test the machine and compare the cost of it verses a new 9700 (sewing/embroidery) or another new 350E.

Hi,

thanks so much for the replies, I decided not to buy the Janome 10000, the more I looked into it the less satisfied I was with the age of the machine, I just didn't feel right about it KWIM?

I have actually ended up with a very slightly used Bernina Deco 340 and at a super bargain price! so I am very happy.

now to do some serious embroidery

Congratulations. The nice thing about the Bernina Deco 340 will be a very small learning curve. The interface/hoops is the same as your Janome 300. Did you get any software with it?

sew2006- The only learning curve I have found so far with the Deco 340 is the difference in file formats it uses. It is so much faster than my 300e and I am in love with the auto thread cutting feature. I already have software so I didn't need it.

tkdnrun- I got the deal through a local dealer, the previous owner bought the machine to have a got at machine embroidery and found that she loved it and so she traded it in for a big TOL combo machine. I ended up paying $895AU for an almost new machine that retails for about $1500AU here.

I have been busy embroidering things for the clothes I am making for DD this week and It is so good to have both machines running at the same time. I sew a lot of Farbenmix patterns and love to include a lot of embroidery so this set up works for me (I will just ignore the fact that this means that I now have 7 sewing machines of one type or another)
