With the Introduction of the Horizon Memory Craft 12000, Janome Begins a New Journey in Sewing, Quilting and Embroidery

MAHWAH, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2011) - With the release of the Horizon Memory Craft 12000, the Janome Sewing Machine Company charts a new direction for sewing, quilting and embroidery enthusiasts.

With its largest-ever bed space and 1,000 stitches-per-minute embroidery, the MC12000 offers many features never before available on a Janome machine.

The Memory Craft 12000 goes beyond the size limits of a traditional touchscreen through a real time connection to your PC. Now your screen can be as large as your computer monitor. Horizon Link™ allows you to create and edit embroidery designs on your computer with your mouse. If you have a Windows laptop, you can work on your embroidery layouts anywhere, anytime. Simply sync when you return to the MC12000.

This machine also lets you create original decorative stitches on your PC using the Stitch Composer™ software. You then import your new stitch into the sewing machine and use it like any other built-in stitch.

Janome's AcuFeed system has been a favorite among quilters. Now it's detachable. The AcuFeed Flex™ Layered Fabric Feeding System comes with two kinds of feet. The Dual Prong Foot gives you extra traction. The Single Prong Foot lets you get in close.

Another first for the Memory Craft 12000 is its embroidery unit. The new Linear Motion Embroidery System™ slips neatly onto the back of the machine, providing Janome's largest embroidery area ever, and even greater accuracy than ever. You can leave it attached for regular sewing, and it allows for Free Arm embroidery: a Janome exclusive.

Other "firsts" include the Variable Zigzag function controlled by the knee lifter; a one-step needle plate conversion (no screwdriver needed); 10 built-in LEDs in 5 locations; a Retractable High Light™, which acts like a mini spotlight; an Adjustable AcuView Magnifier™ that attaches right over the needle plate area; 425 built-in stitches; 91 needle positions; and many more.

The Horizon Memory Craft 12000 arrives at certified Janome dealerships in the USA on October 1, 2011.

Janome America is one of the largest sales subsidiaries of the Janome Sewing Machine Company of Japan. Janome is a category leader in innovation and Janome sewing machines are recognized throughout the industry for their ease-of-use and unsurpassed stitch quality.
