    Name our Janome 6300

    The Janome Memory Craft 6300 is a sewing machine with a wide throat that makes it very helpful for the quilter. It is also useful for free-motion quilting, a modern solution to the quilting question. Quilters lust after these machines. Think how many people you will be making happy when you help us out at this level. We could call this lady anything you like: Junior? Sweetie Pie? Bob? You get to choose. Guess what, we'll thank you on the donors page!

    Name our Janome Horizon 7700

    A great machine for free motion quilting, as it has an eleven inch wide throat that allows quilting up to Queen size quilts. Not quite a Long Arm quilter, but a great learning tool for long armers. We'd love two, but even one would be a great help. Give them good names for us, will ya? We'll thank you on our donors page extra special like...
