Memory Craft 9700 was designed to bring together all the best features in one sewing machine. You get the precision stitching Janome is known for, easy navigation and design layout on a color touchscreen, and the built-in, two-step conversion from sewing to embroidery you can't get from any other brand. One minute it's a sewing and quilting machine, the next it's an embroidery machine.
The MC9700 has the power and precision of a superior stitch mechanism combined with the sophistication of computerized control. From embellishment with decorative stitches and delicate heirloom work, to creative quilting and clothing construction, your sewing projects will go smoother and look better.
Professional-Style Embroidery Without The Clumsy Attachment
Other brands of embroidery machines require separate embroidery attachments that can take up to a half dozen steps to attach. Not Janome. Just two steps take you from sewing to embroidery:
1) Push the Embroidery Mode Key
2) Attach the embroidery foot.
Thanks to our patented telescopic carriage arm, not only is switching easier, the embroidery hoop moves with amazing accuracy. Complete projects in the order you want. Do an embroidery design in the middle of a home dec project, then go right back to sewing buttons.
Compatible With Easy-To-Use Janome Embroidery
The MC9700 works with Customizer 10000 Plus embroidery layout software, Digitizer 10000 embroidery design creation software, and all of our designs available on CD-ROM. Simply transfer your desings via an ATA PC Card (also called a Type II flash memory card).
Super-Size Your Embroidery With The Optional Giga Hoop Kit
This package includes our biggest hoop (9.1" x 7.9"), Customizer 10000 Plus layout software, and a collection of 50 designs created especially for the Giga Hoop.
If You Can Point, You Can Use Even Our Most Advanced On-Screen Editing Functions
Creating unique embroidery designs is so simple. Just touch, drag and drop. If you can point, you can use even our most advanced on-screen editing functions. Bring in your designs from a variety of sources: PC Design Cards, ATA PC Cards, or select from 90 built-in designs.
Edit, combine and add lettering right on screen. The large, bright Touch Screen has the same user-friendly navigation as our top-of-the-line Memory Craft with easy menus and instructions. You can even select which brand of embroidery thread you use; the MC9700 can specify color numbers for Janome, Robison-Anton, Madeira or Mettler threads.
The Only Janome Machine With An Easy-Access Upper Door
The MC9700 has an upper access door on the left side of the case. This new feature provides easy access to the top end of the machine and makes it easy to change the bulb.
