I have a Janome 900 CS Machine which has given me fits! I had one short lesson on it and that was my fault for not pursuing more assistance. I went and got a personal lesson--thanks to the great dealer whom I have previously maligned without really giving them a chance.
Jerry taught me a few tricks and helped me to get the binder to work. I made DGD a long sleeved t shirt with a bound neckline--I am quite pleased with the outcome, but have wrapped the shirt for Christmas. I'll get a photo after she unwraps the goodies.
