"I am completely new to embroidery, but I was able to figure out how to operate the machine on my own!" Elizabeth Ellis, North Carolina. TEXMAC's trainer for new machines, Rene Rosales, has witnessed this at the classroom level. "I've taught machine class almost 10 years now, and with the touch screen machines, and it's nice to watch people catch on so much faster with the new Happy machines. It helps new owners get more out of their machines when everyday tasks on the machines flow so easily for them."

Manufactured in Japan by Happy Industrial Corp, Journey brings the convenience of high speed, multi-needle embroidery to more audiences with its unbeatable combination of entry-level pricing, compact size, quiet operation, and big-machine features.
