MC12000-horizon-linkAdvanced PC Connection – Horizon Link

Even though it’s as easy as ever to create and edit designs on the Horizon Memory Craft 12000’s touch screen, you can take your editing capabilities ever further! You can use your regular computer to edit designs on screen. Simply use your mouse to drag, drop and edit! That means your editing screen is only limited by the computer screen you hook it up to!




MC12000-stitch-composerStitch Composer

The unique Stitch Composer program allows you to create and edit stitches from you computer. 30 stitches from the machine are built into the program, or for a truly customised experience, create your own from scratch! The program is easy to use, and transferring stitches to your machine is a snap.




MC12000-compact-embroidery-unitCompact Embroidery Unit

Great design is in the details. Janome engineers have found a way to offer large, solid, professional style embroidery – and still keep the embroidery unit as compact as possible. No other brand can offer so much embroidery space, with such a small machine footprint. The attachable embroidery unit snaps right into the back of the machine – you don’t have to worry about giant sewing spaces to accommodate bulk to the right of the needle! Plus, this innovative embroidery unit placement means you can use the free arm, even when sewing embroidery. It’s the kind of smart engineering that Janome owners have long known to expect!


MC12000-9mm-stitch-widthStitch 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 20 feet, newly designed for a 9mm stitch width, included with your machine.





MC12000-plate-converterOne Step Plate Converter

Using the right tools at the right time is important in sewing. When using lightweight fabrics, or piecing quilts, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference. Our One Step Plate Converter allows you to easily switch and use the perfect plate for your project. Simply press a button to release one plate; then snap a new one in place – it takes only seconds, with no screwdrivers required! This system also includes a sensor that will only allow a straight stitch to be sewn when the straight stitch needle plate is in place, so you never have to worry about breaking a needle! Both needle plates are included as standard accessories.


MC12000-acufeed-flexAcuFeed Flex

Our AcuFeed Layered Fabric Feeding System has long been legendary in the sewing and quilting world for its amazing precision and power. With the Horizon Memory Craft 12000, we’ve found a way to improve on this amazing device. Now, the AcuFeed system is removable – when not in use, simply store it in one of the ample accessory trays. Adding and removing is easy! AcuFeed now comes in two useful options. The two-pronged AcuFeed feet advance fabric flawlessly from the top and bottom. Use this system for quilting, seaming, and traditional sewing. Our special one-pronged AcuFeed feet give precise control for more detailed work, like installing zippers and matching seams.


MC12000-variable-zig-zagVariable Zig Zag

Advanced tools give advanced abilities for creative expression. The Horizon Memory Craft 1200 includes an all new feature: Variable Zig Zag. This feature enables precision control over the stitch width via the knee lift! Thread painters will rejoice at the ease of control of the stitch width. Begin with a straight stitch, then while the machine is still running, press against the knee lifter to widen your stitch to a 9mm zigzag. Release pressure to gradually return to a straight stitch for a tapered finish. This advanced control opens up amazing new possibilities for creation expression with free motion quilting, thread painting, raw edge applique, free motion monogramming and more.
