Janome Horizon Memory Craft 12000

Sewing, Embroidery, Quilting


Real-Time PC Connection With Horizon Link™ -  It's easy to create and edit designs on the touch screen. But it's even easier when you can do the same thing in real time on your computer. Use your mouse to drag, drop and edit. This means your editing screen can be as large as your computer monitor. Or take your laptop with you to edit on the go.

AcuFeed Flex™ Layered Fabric Feeding System - Our AcuFeed™ system has been a favorite among quilters for its amazing precision and power. Now it's even better. AcuFeed Flex™ is easy to remove and comes in two widths with multiple feet to address different tasks.

Create Your Own Stitches - Don't just modify existing stitches. Design your own original decorative stitches from scratch. Using the Stitch Composer™, it's easy. And your Memory Craft 12000 can use your new creation just like one of its own built-in stitches, altering length and width and adding it to combinations.

Introducing The Linear Motion Embroidery System™ - It slips neatly 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 home-use sewing machine to allow Free Arm Embroidery; a Janome exclusive.

Four Standard Hoops Go From Super Large to Tiny Free Arm -

  • The huge GR Hoop gives you 9.1" x 11.8" of embroidery area. It includes special magnets to aid in fabric stability.
  • The square hoops have always been popular because most embroidery designs fit in a square, including quilt squares. The SQ Hoop has been expanded to 9.1" x 9.1".
  • There is also a 5.5" x 5.5" square hoop.
  • The Free Arm Hoop (FA10) allows you to do embroidery on cuffs, sleeves and other hard-to-reach places. Thanks to exclusive Janome engineering, you can use the free arm on the MC12000 even when embroidering. Perfect for tiny baby projects. This is a feature embroiderers love, and only Janome has it.

Easy Pivoting With The Auto Presser Foot Lift - The Auto Presser Foot Lift automatically lifts the presser foot after a thread cut, when you've pressed the thread snip button, or after a programmed thread cut at the end of a row of decorative stitches. You keep your hands on your project for optimum control.

Stitch Up To 9mm Wide - The extra width makes all your decorative stitches bolder and more distinct. Most of the 425 built-in stitches take full advantage of the 9mm width. You get twenty feet, newly designed for a 9mm stitch width included with your machine.

One-Step Needle Plate Conversion - For piecing quilts, sewing light fabric or ding embroidery, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference. Now you can switch your needle plate in just seconds, instead of undoing screws, simply push one lever to release the plate, then snap the new plate in place.


See It All More Clearly -  In addition to lighting your work area with 10 built-in LED's in five locations, you can also extend a retractable High Light™ for greater illumination in the area you need most; directly under the needle. And for an even closer view you can also attach the new AcuView Magnifier.™'

Change The Width Of Your ZigZag While Sewing - Start your Free Motion Quilting or Surface Designing with a straight stitch. Then widen to a 9mm zigzag without stopping or ever taking our hands off your fabric. With Variable Zigzag, you use the knee lifter to broaden and taper stitches while sewing.

Embroider At Higher Speeds With Better Precision - Janome engineering allows the Memory Craft 12000 to embroider at up to 1,000 stitches per minute. And because the compact embroidery unit is so stable, you can stitch at this speed with hoops up to 9.1" x 11.8" without losing any Janome stitch quality.

A Sewing Bed With 15" of Embossed Stainless Steel - Not only does the Memory Craft 12000 have more workspace than any other Janome, the sewing bed features a 15" stainless steel plate embossed with usefull measurements. 11" to the right of the needle gives you plenty of room for your biggest projects.

91 Needle Positions - You don't have to settle for "close enough." Thanks to a 9mm stitch width, the Memory Craft 12000 is capable of more precise detail than ever on every decorative stitch. Position the needle with unprecedented accuracy for smoother transitions and perfect curves.

Free Motion Quilting Is Freer Than Ever - Precision stitching, more decorative choices, and automatic features make expressing yourself through FMQ easier than ever. And now, you can also customize the foot height for your project and preference, then save the settings to memory. Or let Auto Pressure and Auto Height adjust for you.
