When using lightweight fabrics or piecing quilts, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference.

Advanced embroidery unit Janome Memory Craft embroidery machines have always set the standard for professional-quality embroidery. And the unit on the MC15000 takes this legacy even further. The unit utilises three Linear Motion Guides with five ball bearing blocks to give an extremely stable and accurate embroidery motion. It’s the same technology used in our high tech industrial robots and the result is embroidery stitch quality you simply can’t find anywhere else. And you can do regular sewing while the unit is attached.
