And…ahhh…I was in the back of the shop trying to find the Janome 1600P machine so I could ask a question on how to thread it (it was a Christmas gift that my in-laws picked out for me…bless my BIL’s heart, he tried his best!) and, well…instead, I saw my dearly beloved MC6500P, RIP, while petting and tearing up over it…a very coooool looking Janome, called the Threadbanger TB30, a flashy piece of machinery with a big ole star slapped onto it was trying to get my attention.
I found out that Windy Moon Quilts did not carry the 1600P so I couldn’t ask to test drive it and figure out how it worked. While being comforted by two of the ladies about my MC6500P, the Threadbanger kept jumping up at me like Horseshack on Welcome Back, Kotter. I snuck a peek at the price tag….$629….and told it to “stop flagging me down, you’re too expensive for me right now.”
“Ooh-ooh-ooooh! Buuut wait! See my star?! I’m on SALE! 40% OFF!”
Goodness gracious! You should have seen my VISA card, the one that I have way back behind other cards so I don’t use it very often, fly out of it’s hiding place and swish itself through the quilt shop’s credit card swiping machine! I’ve never seen it fly so fast before! The next thing I saw was that flashy Threadbanger running out the door with my car keys and had itself inside and safely buckled in before I knew what was happening.
So…does anyone want to buy a brand new Janome 1600P for $500????
