Janome Horizon Memory Craft 12000
The Janome Horizon Memory Craft 12000 is a machine for the sewing and embroidery professional with a price point at the luxury end and for good reason.
What do you get for this? For a start a massive 9” x 11” design area, LCD backlit touch screen, a quick reference stitch chart in the lid of the machine, 300 built-in designs, needle threader, a sensor to stop the machine when the bobbin is low, auto thread cutting, auto-tension, auto-pilot, auto-speed, drop-in bobbin, cap-hoop capability, downloadable designs. The Memory Craft 12000 only reads .jef format software, however, there is an iPad app that allows you to import, export and edit existing files.
The marketing material tells us this machine will change the way you create and will make your sewing journey more enjoyable, and I must agree with this summation.
At a similar price point to the Janome MB-4S, the choice between the two comes down to your particular circumstances. Whilst the MB-4S offers everything you would want in an embroidery machine the Memory Craft 12000 is a multi-use machine ideally suited to quilting, embroidery plus use for normal sewing machine purposes.
