Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000
Computerized Sewing Machine
Compact and competent, the new Janome Memory Craft 15000 is by far our best sewing machine yet. Armed with the exceptional processor speeds and advanced software applications, this machine is designed to make your task more intuitive be it sewing, quilting or embroidery. A much larger HD screen, top-shelf embroidery arm unit, and expanded ability to connect to computers, laptops and iPads (both via USB and over wireless) gives you a richer experience. We also re-engineered the foot control and LED lights, bobbin winder and extra quilting hoops mean we deliver both on hardware and software fronts. Your one-stop multi-purpose sewing machine.
Design like a Pro
The sophisticated AcuEdit™ app, our latest offering, does all that you ever needed to do with a design. Think up the fanciest of those patterns, flip it along any axis, mirror it, repeat it, add monograms, center align, add borders or corners, rotate clockwise/ counter-clockwise or just add a custom pattern. You can edit with the software app, watch the progress and tweak it on the go. Our app can even suggest you the correct thread tension and setting for all. Available in app-store for downloading straight into your computer with brand new design selections from Leah Day
Monitor design progress
We have designed this custom AcuMonitor™ app to let you supervise the way final design is being rendered on fabric. Now you can literally oversee that your creativity isn’t compromised as you can see stitch by stitch update of the design. Whether you choose from the built-in bank of nearly five hundred designs, or use your own, this app helps you look into the details from your iPad (so you don’t even have to be near your machine while it works on your design!). Available in app-store and via iTunes.
Stand-alone design capabililty
The exclusive Horizon link software helps you design independently and import your work of art straight into the machine. The software suite has terrific array of built-in designs, stitch styles, combinational design options and remote functioning settings. Just install it to your computer and it is ready to communicate with your Janome 15000.
High Definition Touch Screen
HD touch screen designed to wow you, the new Memory Craft15000 is armed with a touchscreen which is rich and clear like no other. At over 1.6 m colors, resolution to rival the best (800px X 480px), backlit liquid crystal display and over nine inches of screen space it is the sort of rich visual experience which truly brings your colorful designs alive.
Automatic Needle Threading comfort
The enhanced needle threading feature is a step up on the previous Memory Craft models. Set the thread along the upper guides, press a button and the machine automatically grabs the thread tail and completes threading. You’ll welcome the truly ‘hands-off’ automatic feature.
Reliable stipple quilting
Gone are the days when embroidery and quilting were two separate tasks to be tackled. Now you can use the AcuFil™ which can automatically calculate the area to be covered in the hoop, and stitches out the entire quilt top with precision. No more hassles of changing plates or needles.
The MC15000 comes with the standard SQ23 and SQ14 hoops, a large GR hoop for bigger projects and even a quilting hoop for your bassinets and baby quilts. And yes, you can use hoops from your earlier MC12000 or 11000 machines.

Fantastic Review by Tanya
Value Quality Price
Works just great, the 15000 really is a breakthrough for me, after trying out a whole bunch of other machines. It sews evenly and beautifully and it was a Godsend for my furnishing and decoration needs. If you want an all purpose machine that gets the job done, this is it, without a doubt.
