Expand Your Sewing, Quilting And Embroidery To New Horizons
Experience the Horizon Memory Craft 12000
With a 15" embossed stainless steel plate in the bed and 11" to the right of the needle, it has the most workspace of any Janome. It has the largest, most stable embroidery system we’ve ever developed. It will change the way you create, and make the creative journey more enjoyable than ever before.
Real-Time PC Connection With Horizon Link™
It’s easy to create and edit designs on the touchscreen. But it’s even easier when you can do the same thing in real time on your computer. Use your mouse to drag, drop and edit. This means your editing screen can be as large as your computer monitor. Or take your laptop with you to edit on the go.
AcuFeed Flex™ Layered Fabric Feeding System
Our AcuFeed system has been a favorite among quilters for its amazing precision and power. Now it’s even better. AcuFeed Flex™ is easy to remove and comes in two widths with multiple feet to address different tasks.
Stitch Composer™: Create Your Own Stitches
Don’t just modify existing stitches. Design your own original decorative stitches from scratch. Using the Stitch Composer™, it’s easy. And your Memory Craft 12000 can use your new creation just like one of its own built-in stitches, altering length and width and adding it to combinations.
Introducing The Linear Motion Embroidery System™
It slips neatly onto the back of your machine to give you a bigger embroidery area than ever before, with even greater accuracy. So discreet and sleek, you can leave it attached for regular sewing. So cleverly engineered, it makes the MC12000 the only home-use sewing machine to allow Free Arm embroidery: a Janome exclusive.
Four New Embroidery Hoops
The extra large embroidery area lets you use four hoops with amazing new capabilities. The largest, the huge GR Hoop, gives you 9.1" x 11.8" of embroidery area. It includes special magnets to aid in fabric stability. The SQ Hoop has been extended to 9.1" x 9.1" and there's also a 5.5" x 5.5" square hoop. The Free Arm Hoop (FA10) allows you to embroider in hard-to-reach places.
Easy Pivoting With The Auto Presser Foot Lift
The Auto Presser Foot Lift automatically lifts the presser foot after a thread cut, when you’ve pressed the thread snip button, or after a programmed thread cut at the end of a row of decorative stitches. You keep your hands on your project for optimum control.
Stitch Up To 9mm Wide
The extra width makes all your decorative stitches bolder and more distinct. Most of the 425 built-in stitches take full advantage of the 9mm width. You get twenty feet, newly designed for a 9mm stitch width, included with your machine.
One-Step Needle Plate Conversion
For piecing quilts, sewing light fabric or doing embroidery, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference. Now you can switch your needle plate in just seconds. Instead of undoing screws, simply push one lever to release the plate, then snap the new plate in place.
Change The Width Of Your Zigzag While Sewing
Start your Free Motion Quilting or Surface Designing with a straight stitch. Then widen to a 9mm zigzag without stopping or ever taking your hands off your fabric. With Variable Zigzag, you use the knee lifter to broaden and taper stitches while sewing.
Embroider At Higher Speeds With Better Precision
Janome engineering allows the Memory Craft 12000 to embroider at up to 1,000 stitches per minute. And because the compact embroidery unit is so stable, you can stitch at this speed with hoops up to 9.1" x 11.8" without losing any Janome stitch quality.
A Sewing Bed With 15" Of Embossed Stainless Steel
Not only does the Memory Craft 12000 have more work space than any other Janome, the sewing bed features a 15" stainless steel plate embossed with useful measurements. 11" to the right of the needle gives you plenty of room for your biggest projects.
91 Needle Positions
You don’t have to settle for “close enough.” Thanks to a 9mm stitch width, the Memory Craft 12000 is capable of more precise detail than ever on every decorative stitch. Position the needle with unprecedented accuracy for smoother transitions and perfect curves.
Free Motion Quilting Is Freer Than Ever
Precision stitching, more decorative choices, and automatic features make expressing yourself through FMQ easier than ever. And now, you can also customize the foot height for your project and preference, then save the settings to memory. Or let Auto Pressure and Auto Height adjust for you.
See It All More Clearly With The HighLight
In addition to lighting your work area with 10 built-in LEDs in five locations, you can also add greater illumination in the area where you need it most: directly under the needle. Just extend the retractable HighLight and aim it up or down, depending where you need the light. When you're done, it slides back into its slot.
The New AcuView Magnifier
When you really need to get a closer view, attach the AcuView Magnifier. With 1.5x magnification it makes it easy to see the tiniest detail under the needle. And it can be used in conjunction with the HighLight.
