By Dedicated Janome Artisan Samantha Walker
When making a project, Janome blogger Samantha Walker knows how to add that special touch through her beautiful embroidery skills. Samantha currently works on a Horizon Memory Craft 15000 sewing and embroidery machine, so we decided to give her the new Memory Craft 500E embroidery-only machine to test. She explains that while the MC15000 embroidery quality is hard to beat, the MC500E comes close to offering the same capabilities, but at a more reasonable price.
Samantha mentions in her review that the 500E comes with a simple embroidery program that made it easy to transfer her digitized design into the machine. The RE28b hoop that comes with the machine allowed Samantha to embroider the logo from her husband's veteran's organization across the back of his shirt. The display on the machine's full color touchscreen kept Samantha informed of all of the thread sequences that made her get through the 13 color design. Check out the shirt below.
