As long as there's a new project on the horizon, the creative journey never ends. Especially when you have a machine with as many possibilities as the Horizon Memory Craft 12000. Each new function, each unique and well-engineered feature sparks another great idea, a new and better way to tackle a challenge.

Only Janome brings you this perfect blend of advanced technology and signature ease-of-use. The MC12000 has all the incredible functionality you've hoped for in a sewing and embroidery machine,

implemented in ways that are intuitive, smarter, and just plain more enjoyable.

With a 15" embossed stainless steel plate in the bed, 17" sewing platform, and 11" to the right of the needle, it has the most workspace of any Janome. It has the largest, most stable embroidery system we've ever developed. It will change the way you create, and make the creative journey more enjoyable than ever before.

Top Features:

Real-time PC connection with Horizon Link™
The touchscreen is certainly large enough to do on-screen editing. But if you want a view that's much larger than any sewing screen can offer, connect the machine to your PC via our exclusive Horizon Link™. Now you can create and edit embroidery designs and stitch combinations on your computer with your mouse - anywhere, anytime.

Detachable AcuFeed Flex™ Layered Fabric Feeding System
The Memory Craft 12000 comes standard with two AcuFeed Flex™ feet. The Dual Prong Foot gives you extra traction. The Single Prong Foot lets you get in close. Both are easily detachable.

The Amazing Stitch Composer™
Use your PC to create original stitches from scratch. Or take existing stitches and alter them needle-drop by needle-drop. Your machine treats your custom creations just like built-in stitches; so you can edit, combine and save them to your machine or PC.

Sleek Linear Motion Embroidery System™
It slips neatly, discretely onto the back of your machine to give you a bigger embroidery area than ever before, with even greater accuracy. So discreet and sleek, you can leave it attached for regular sewing. So cleverly engineered, it's the only machine to allow Free Arm embroidery: a Janome exclusive.
