Janome Introduces the Memory Craft 9900 Sewing, Quilting and Embroidery Machine
Mahwah, NJ – Sewists have long treasured Janome’s precision stitch quality and innovative solutions for embroidery and sewing. Janome’s most recent addition, the Memory Craft 9900, delivers this, as well as a range of customizable options and unique features for sewing, quilting, and embroidery enthusiasts.
Since introducing the world’s first home embroidery machine, the Memory Craft 8000, in 1990, Janome has been at the forefront of innovation in home sewing. The Memory Craft 9900 continues in this tradition. The machine features many new and intuitive features, and places this machine at the very top of its price class.
The most impressive feature of the Memory Craft 9900 is its amazing embroidery stitch quality. The machine contains 175 built-in embroidery designs in a range of styles and sizes. Designs are stitched using a detachable embroidery unit that slides onto the back of the machine. The stitches are placed using an X-Y grid system and Janome’s Double Linear Motion Guide, which provides amazing stability and allows for precise movement. In fact, the movement is so accurate, you can actually embroidery lace designs on thicker organza with no stabilizer. The machine includes two standard hoops, and can create embroidery designs up to 6.7” x 7.9”.
But it’s not just embroidery that is impressive! For regular sewing, the machine contains 200 built-in stitches including 6 buttonholes, with widths up to 9mm. The machine contains Janome’s Superior Plus Feed System, which features automatic tension, a jam-proof rotary hook, and 7-point feed dogs which stay parallel as they pull the fabric under the presser foot, giving them more consistent contact with the fabric.
Sewists who love to express themselves will enjoy the customizable features of this machine! The MC9900 comes with three Quick Change Face Panels – they are easy to switch out and are available in Red, Teal, and White, with more colors coming soon! But the customization doesn’t stop there. The Preferences and General settings of the machine can be adjusted and memorized to suit the needs of individual sewists. The contrast of the touchscreen as well as its background color can be set to match a sewist’s mood or room décor. Other settings can also be adjusted, such as auto thread tension, low bobbin thread warning, maximum embroidery speed, auto thread cutting, consecutive color grouping, and thread trimming after auto lock during regular sewing.
The machine also features several advanced innovations. The most obvious is its high resolution touch screen with large dimensions and vivid colors. The majority of embroidery machines in this price range have monochromatic screens, many of which are not even touch activated. The Memory Craft 9900 features a screen with over 65,000 colors. And the brand new central processing unit (CPU) allows four times faster navigation than previous models.
Another unique feature is One-Step Needle Plate Conversion, which allows sewists to simply pop up the regular needle plate, then snap a straight stitch needle plate in place, without the use of a screwdriver. The machine comes standard with both plates, and allows for quick switching when sewing on varied fabric weights.
Sewists of all ranges and abilities will love the Memory Craft 9900 – it contains a wealth of unique features which set it apart, and allow creativity to flourish. Find more information on this amazing machine on Janome.com, or stop in at a Janome dealer.
