Janome Horizon Memory Craft 12000
- Product Review (submitted on September 10, 2013):
- I recently traded my old Janome 9700 for a new 12000 and I’m happy I did. It is very nice and has a lot of built in stitches that the 9700 didn’t. One of my favourite things about this machine, is the screen is much bigger and the entire design is displayed at once making it easier to follow. It lights up for every colour so you know in every moment what your machine is doing. I like that it has two motors so I don’t have to stop sewing if I want to wind the bobbin. The first time I used a USB on this machine it didn’t recognize my designs but then I figured out that they weren't in the right folder. After figuring it out, I could see all my projects It is nice that you can personalize your screen saver with your own photos and that the patterns appear instantly, in opposition with the 9700 which needed a lot of time to synchronize. I find the embroidery made with the 12000 a little better than the one done with the old 9700. I signed for free classes with my dealer so I’ll learn more about the features that this machine has and I can’t wait to try the quilting stitches also. I am happy with my purchase, even if it is expensive, this machine is worth the money and if you have a trade in it will bring the cost down a bit.
