Saw new foot I'd like to have, fits only low shank machines.

I think the MC11000 is a high shank, can't find anwer in manuel.

Anyone out there tell me for sure.

Closest dealer to me is 500 miles round trip, so I don't get there much


Anyone have opinion on the new Horizon, I'm thinking about it vs additional updates. So many features are the same as I've got.

If you mean the 12,000 Horizon. If you can afford it yes get it. I have had it since October and it is an awesome machine. I had the 11,000SE upgraded to the highest and this 12,000 is far superior to my 11,000. I also have the Horizon machine with the dual feed and the new 12,000 feeding system is even much better than my 7700Horizon.

Hope this helps.

I agree with MOM. I have had the 11000 SE, and still have my 7700 but the new 12000 is a dream come true. If you can afford it and decide to go for it, you will never regret the purchase. Upgrades usually give more for embroidery or extra quilting features. I get them as they keep me on my toes and learning new things. As I get older, I think I will be glad to have these new challenges. Keeps the mind active.

Oh, The embroidery machines are all "high shank" as the space is needed to have the lift to get the embroidery hoops into the machine. What foot is it that you are looking at. I purchased a "flower" foot that Janome re-introduced for the 90th anniversary - can't use it on my fancy machines but had to have it as it was so unique. I will be trading my gifted sewing machine for one a bit fancier through my dealer - then I will be able to use this neat little foot. It sews little circles to create decor on garments. It is an attachment that has the fabric feed around it in circles rather than in straight lines. You use the decorative stitches in the machine.

Although it's true that all embroidery machines are high shank so are the 6600 and 7700 due to their dual feed system

Thank you all. I am so tempted to get the new machine. Dealer said they would take my 11000 as a trade. I just keep trying to justify it. I started a list of questions to ask when we go that way in February. It's a 250 mile trip one way.

The foot was the little round flower one mentioned by another.

Thanks a bunch.
