I flew home yesterday, returning from Orlando where I attended Janome Institute. I’m very tired today, but am back to work at Temecula Valley Sewing Center, and as exhausting as the trip was, the new Janome “top of the line” Horizon Memory Craft 12000 has kept me enthusiastic about sewing. The new machine has features I never thought possible in a sewing/embroidery machine. To try to impart all of the information I learned about the Janome 12000 in this brief blog post would be impossible. Instead, I will compose a number of blog posts over the next few weeks, featuring one or two amazing benefits in each post.
You have probably been to the Janome 12000 website, or seen the front view of the the machine on our home page, so I won’t go into how beautiful it is… you have seen that for yourself. What I would like this blog post to convey is what you cannot see.
You cannot see all of the twenty (yes, that’s 20) feet that come with the Janome 12000, many of them new versions of existing feet to accommodate the new 9mm stitch width, others developed exclusively for the Janome 12000. With 20 feet, there are only a handful of specialty feet that are not included. I’ve never seen a sewing machine come with that many feet, and I think it’s simply amazing.
You also cannot see the new stitch plate and how easily it is removed with the push of a button. All other Janome machines have stitch plates that attach with screws. You cannot see the straight stitch plate that comes standard with the 12000, or that a sensor on the machine knows which stitch plate is installed on the machine.
You do not see the magnifying lens that also comes standard with the 12000, or how easily it snaps into place, and how easily it it swings out of the way or snaps off when you don’t need it.
You cannot see the newly designed knee lifter that has been re-formed to make using it much easier and more manageable.
Not visible are the four (4) embroidery hoops that come standard with the new Janome 12000, and how sturdy each hoop is, and that the two largest hoops come with extra clips for stability of your projects.
Not visible are the many sensors that make the 12000 the smartest machine on the market, or that in a room with fifty (50) of the machines running at their full 1000 stitches per minute speed we were able to use our regular indoor voices because the machines are that quiet. We almost could not hear them.
I have briefly mentioned a few of the many features and benefits of the new Janome 12000. Look for separate “in-depth” blog posts in the coming days and weeks.
I haven’t been this excited about a new top of the line machine in a very long time. If you are looking to replace your old top of the line machine, interested in upgrading your machine, or plan to take the plunge for the first time, check out the new Janome 12000 before you make your final decision…I think you will make the the Janome 12000 your final decision.
