Janome launched its newest sewing/embroidery machine, the Memory Craft 9900, yesterday, March 1, 2013. Although the machine will not appear for sale in most Janome dealerships until mid-March, Temecula Valley Sewing Center wanted to introduce you to the sheer awesomeness of the new MC9900. No matter what type of sewing, quilting, or embroidery you do, we think you’re going to love it!
Last month we attended training in Las Vegas for the new MC9900. What was so amazing to witness was the sheer quietness of a room full of MC9900’s embroidering at the same time. There must have been 30 or 40 machines running all at once, and we had no trouble hearing the educator over the quiet hum of the machines. Oh, the bliss.
Learning the amazing features of the new MC9900 was so much fun. We are in awe of the features and capabilities of the new machine in relation to its cost. We would expect a machine of this caliber to carry a steep price.
Besides being a phenomenal sewing/embroidery machine, the new Janome Memory Craft 9900 has the most stable embroidery unit Janome has ever produced. It is incredibly precise. In fact, the stitch quality is so precise, it is possible to embroider fine lace designs on certain types of organza without stabilizer!
With a 8-1/2″ bed area, from inside the arm to the needle, the new MC9900 is super fast (1000 stitches per minute). And, as we stated before, it is remarkably quiet. If you are looking for value, the MC9900 has the kind of specifications found on machines costing twice as much and with three-times the learning curve. With the MC9900 everything is so easy to use because the technology has been designed to make it fun.
Embroidery Designs & Decorative Stitches For All Your Creative Projects
The Janome Memory Craft 9900 has 175 built-in embroidery designs, many of them brand new. The built-in designs include a collection of exclusive motifs by Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry. Jane’s designs were created specifically for the MC9900, and she made sure each design could not only be used on its own, but could also be combined to create larger design layouts. The intricacy and color detail are stunning.
Within the MC9900’s sewing library are 200 built-in stitches, including 5 One-Step buttonholes and 1 Auto buttonhole plus bar tacks and darning stitches. 25 of these beautiful stitches can be flipped horizontally and vertically.
Easy Navigation On The Memory Craft 9900
Quickly Find Exactly What You Want. The MC9900 has a brighter, more “colorful” new screen (over 65 thousand colors). The graphic interface is designed to help you find the stitches and settings you want quickly and easily. Use a stylus or your finger to navigate. And the brand new central processing unit (CPU) gets you there four times faster than previous models.
Browse And Edit 200 Built-In Stitches
The touch screen buttons on the MC9900 take you through the major stitch categories. From there, you can quickly select the exact stitch you want. Stitch adjustments, such as length, width and tension are easy to adjust and save. You can also combine and customize stitches, then save the combos to the machine’s memory for future use.
Import Designs Via USB Memory Stick
You don’t need software to import embroidery designs into your MC9900. You can use a standard USB memory stick sold through your local Janome dealer, or in any electronics section at stores selling computers. Although the preferred memory of a USB device is 64mb, the Janome MC9900 is able to read USB devices up to 2GB. To use a USB device with your computer, simply plug the USB memory stick into the machine. The MC9900 will automatically format it, creating an EMB folder on your USB device. When you then insert the device into your computer – PC or Mac – you can simply drag the designs you keep on your computer into the device’s EMB folder. Next, simply insert the USB device back into the MC9900, access the design(s) via the touch screen, and get ready to stitch!
