I would love to swap tips, facts, etc. with UK users of my newish machine. I am enjoying it very much despite it's few quirks i.e. the thread jumps out of the tension spring sometimes so I have to check it frequently. Also I think the foot changing is very fiddly. I find that if I use the walking feet on anything other than a 3 layer quilt sandwich it's very noisy - it bangs onto the footplate. Same goes for when I use the Big Foot free motion foot, the little iron bar at the top clatters on the metal foot holder.
This sounds bad, I don't really have a lot of problems and I love the way the tension just seems to work whatever type of thread I put in. Also it's brilliant at handling difficult silky threads which were impossible on my old Pfaff.
Hope to hear from other users.

Wonder if this is of any interest to you - I get a newsletter from Janome.com and a new free motion quilting foot for the 6600 is mentioned in the one I received today. This is the link to the page http://www.confirmserve.com/janome/emails/05-15-08-enewsletter.html

Looking at the enewsletter I think the Janome free motion foot has a very small round bit whereas my Bigfoot one is larger.
Thanks anyway. I have contacted Janome and asked to sign up for their newsletter.
