I did it. I bought the new Continental M7 Professional Sewing Machine. I don't think I have one any better than this machine It surpasses my MC15000, and I never thought that could ever happen unless they came out with the next model of the Embroidery/Sewing machine at the high price that they cost - the M7 is it. I took a class that was a 2 day spread over 2 Wednesdays. My dealer let me sew my Bras (great class) on this wonderful machine and I was a "goner". I lucked into the Black Friday sale - yes in Canada, even though we've had out Thanksgiving over a month and a half ago.
I even let 3 of my grandchildren be the FIRST to sew on the new machine. They were impressed and the older of the 3 at age 14 is quite a seamstress already. She is sewing up a fat quarter with decorative stitches and we'll think of something she make with the finished product. Her 8 year old sister will likely want to make something too and we'll work that out later. The 11 year old brother was impressed as well - pretty good for a boy of that age. Today I get to sew on it and I'll finish the borders on a little quilt sample that I had hanging on the wall for a couple months now.
Just letting this group know that if you can afford this machine, you won't be suffering any let down as it is an awesome machine. Powerful motor, good lighting and good eye sight access to the needle area. However, it is huge in comparison to the 6700 as it has that big harp area for quilting.
