The Janome Sewing Machine Company has given quilters a great way to escape into the world of pure creativity. The new
Horizon 8900 QCP
combines the wide-open sewing space and speed of the top-of-the-line Horizon Memory Craft 12000 with the quilting features of the popular Horizon Memory Craft 7700 QCP. The MC8900 features 11″ of work space to the right of the needle, sewing speeds of up to 1,000 stitches per minute, 9 mm stitch width, and the innovative AcuFeed Flex™ fabric feeding system.
The Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP comes with 270 built-in stitches, hundreds up to 9 mm wide. These include more of the popular Play stitches, 11 buttonholes, 3 alphabets, and 6 Direct Select stitches. Navigation through all the choices is sped along through a combination of jog-dial and button selection.
Janome’s AcuFeed™ system has been a favorite among quilters. Now it’s detachable. The AcuFeed Flex™ Layered Fabric Feeding System on the Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP uses the Dual Prong Foot to keep even the thickest stack of quilt layers moving through in perfect sync.
The needle plate can be switched from Standard to Straight Stitch in seconds — no screwdriver necessary. Just press a button to pop out the existing plate and snap in the new one.
Quilters will also love the patented needle placement accuracy. Special plate markings indicate needle drop position, provide angle marks, and act as front-of-the-foot guides.
