Our Super-Precise Embroidery Unit Gives You Fantastic Stitch Quality

Janome Memory Craft embroidery machines have always set the standard for professional-quality embroidery. And the unit on the MC15000 takes this legacy even further. The unit utilizes three Linear Motion Guides with five ball bearing blocks to give an extremely stable and accurate embroidery motion. The result is embroidery stitch quality you simply can't find on any other brand.

Created using technology developed for high precision industrial robots, the embroidery mechanism movement is accurate to within hundredths of an inch. Yet it is so stable and reliable, it comes with a 25 year warranty against mechanical failure. And you can leave it on when you're doing your regular sewing.

The Bigger Screen Makes The Onscreen Embroidery Tools Even Easier

One of the reasons for the bigger, higher resolution screen is to make your onscreen editing as effortless as possible. Using your finger or the provided stylus, you can quickly create embroidery layouts. All your standard editing tools are included--like Cut, Copy, Paste, Duplicate, Rotate, etc. Plus advanced tools like Cornering, Centering, Letter Arcing & Spacing, and Color Sorting to group your thread colors for fewer thread changes.
