A Letter From Shin Yamamoto, President and CEO of Janome America, Inc.
Janome products have been at the cutting edge of sewing technology since the earliest days of our founding. We were the first to develop a computerized machine for home use (the Memory 7, in 1979), the first to offer professional style embroidery to the home market (the Memory Craft 8000, in 1990) and the first to offer a long-arm quilting machine for home use (the Memory Craft 6500P, in 2003). The long-arm quilting machine has also evolved to the fourth generation with the introduction of the Horizon Memory Craft 9400QCP, which features 11 inches of arm space, removable AcuFeed Flex dual feed, and a high resolution LCD touch screen with jog dial control.
Today, our flagship model, the Horizon Memory Craft 15000, is redefining the way sewists enjoy their hobby. This revolutionary machine is the first-ever wireless-enabled sewing machine. Sewists can now send designs or monitor stitch outs on their sewing machine using their iPad or PC. Janome also offers four thoughtful and functional iPad apps for embroidery: AcuMonitor and AcuEdit. AcuMonitor allows users to monitor their embroidery stitch outs in real time, while AcuEdit offers the complete MC15000 embroidery editing suite for the ipad. The AcuSetter app allows you to adjust the position of designs using your iPad and Wi-Fi before embroidering. AcuDesign Embroidery App allows you to purchase, edit, import and export designs from your iOS mobile device. This, in addition to a true 9mm stitch width, Variable Zigzag, the Linear Motion Embroidery System, and many more features make this the most powerful, yet effortless sewing, quilting and embroidery machine available.
Our mission is to produce machines which inspire creativity and innovation, yet are simple to use. We know the most important thing about our products is not the machines themselves, but what you create with them. The better your tools, the more inventive, artistic and pleasurable your sewing experience. That’s why we design our machines for performance, but also for comfort, quality, and intuitive ease of operation.
As a leader in the sewing industry, we keep striving to provide best-in-class products and services which enable sewists' creativity and innovation. At Janome America, we create our products to inspire, not intimidate—because the most important function our machines perform is to set free your creativity.
Thank you for being a Janome sewist.
Mr. Shin Yamamoto
