Quilt & embroidery 15000
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I really love this machine. I am so spoiled.. stitching is so nice... no matter what the project I'm working on it has the right Stitch or accessory to make it with ease.
Had Janome’s since 1991!
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I love Janome’s. I’ve always had a top of the line machine and also have a small Janome Jem Platinum 760 for class. I occasionally have issues with the needle threader but my husband has mastered fixing that. Sometimes the thread comes out of the takeup lever as well but even with these nuisances, I wouldn’t trade my Janome in for any other machine and I’ve tried all of the top brands. It’s just easy to use and logical to figure out. I love the advanced features as well. Thanks Janome for a wonderful machine.
Love my 15000
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

So thankful I bought my 15000 last May! Still learning various functions. Fun to use and so easy!
Exceptional Machine
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Started with the 11000, and now have the 15000 as well. I am extremely happy with this machine. I have yet to find anything it cannot do! I continue to take classes and made my first quilt. I enjoy the fact that it is so versatile and can be used in so many different ways, sewing, embroidery, applique, and on and on. I enjoy making gifts for family and friends and enjoy creating my own designs as well as purchased patterns, etc. Wonderful machine.
GREAT machine!
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I LOVE my 15000. It is a real workhouse as well as having so many fun features. I only with that the needle threader was more reliable - but I understand there's an upgrade for that - so after the upgrade it will be PERFECT!

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I love love my 15000. Wish we had better support when calling Janome and wish they would communicate with us on updates as well. The machine is AWESOME!!! Janome needs to step the customer service piece! I never get a live person and some times takes days to get answers.

I love my Horizon MC15000. It is a very sturdy machine — a real work horse — and Very quiet. The stitching is beautiful and the embroidery stitch-outs are amazing.
Memory Craft 15000
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I love my Memory Craft 15000, especially with update to Quilt Maker. This is my fourth JANOME machine and it is now my favorite. I must agree with previous review, the thread does drop out of the uptake lever rather frequently.
Dream come true!
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

This machine is the ultimate! Best investment I have ever made! The embroidery is perfection and sewing is a breeze. It's easy to use, fun to learn, and best of all: A Janome!! Janome gives you so much more with their products. I will always be a Janome girl!
Love my 15000!
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I have been a Janome owner for MANY years. Each machine just gets better, and the HMC 15000 is no exception! Limitless fun and possibilities.
Wonderful Machine
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Love my 15000. Thank you for the upgrade to Quiltmaker. I love being able to do ruler work. The only problem I have is sometimes hitting the screen in error when reaching to the right of my machine. Wish there was some sort of cover over the screen to keep me from trying to change the stitch when I am sewing. Even with that I love my machine and would not trade it for any other!!
Best EVER!
Thursday, February 1, 2018

There is no sewing machine like my HMC15000! It is smooth, quiet, accurate, easy, and sews the most beautiful embroidery and quilting patterns! Fabulous support and great technique from the website. This machine makes me look like a professional no matter what project I try. I am in LOVE with this machine (just don’t tell my hubby!)! PLUS it has software for my iPad! I can cook dinner and watch my machine on the iPad, so I know when to change threads. I can pull up a design, make changes anywhere, and stitch the design out when I get home! The HMC 15000 cannot be out performed by ANY machine on the market today.
I love my 15000 V2
Thursday, February 1, 2018

My 15000 was just updated with a new needle threader and other software updates. The needle threader works extremely well, you just have to learn the “quirks” of the machine. I am excited to try ruler work and thread work on my 15000 V2... thank you Janome....

I just love my Quilt Maker 15000, I am still learning new things that the machine can do. I have pieced, quilted Quilts, done embroidery and even worked on free motion quilting. The option are so numerous, giving me the options that let my creativity flow. Keep up the good work!
Great embroidery machine
Thursday, February 1, 2018

I like this machine, my only suggestion is: please please make it possible to use Acufil on my IPad. All the other programs are available on the IPad, except Acufil which is the one i really need without forcing me to buy a computer

I have had my machine for about a year and updated it to the Quilt Maker version at the end of last year. I love the machine and all its features! I admit I am not sure what all the upgrades were or how to use some of the feet, but I also really appreciate the help and information that is available on the Janome site! Thanks for a remarkable product!
MC15000 / Quilt Maker 15000
Thursday, February 1, 2018

I bought my machine 2 years ago - I couldn't be happier. Quilting, free motion quilting, embroidery - this machine is a dream! I've used the iPad apps to edit & change embroidery design easily. The threader was problematic initially, but once it was replaced I've had zero issues. The assessories that came with the machine are fantastic. What I like is I'm still learning new things with it. This was a purchase well worth it!
Thursday, February 1, 2018

I LOVE THIS MACHINE! It is my first embroidery machine and is so much fun! My husband got the Digitizer V5 and he is having fun too creating original designs! What a team we are!!
Thursday, February 1, 2018

I am still learning all of the features but so far I am thrilled! I love this machine!
Thursday, February 1, 2018

I purchased my MC15000 at the International Quilt Festival in Houston 10/30/2014 and have been totally addicted. I have become so spoiled with many of the features that it's difficult to use my traveling machines... keep looking for those buttons to push.
Thursday, February 1, 2018

I love my 15000! I own 2 other Janomes also & feel they are just the absolute best on the market for dependability,performance & the beautiful stitches.This machine has such a vast array of options open to quilters,seamstresses,& embroiderier's alike. It is just the best machine I have seen!!

I love my Janome HMC 15000. From the first project it has produced beautiful embroidered items. Transition to sewing is easy as the machine is so user friendly. It is a great machine for a beginner to the experienced sew and crafter. I recommend it highly. A 5 star machine!
Thursday, February 1, 2018

Love the 15000. Continually learning more and more of the machines capabilities. My issue is that the Janome website is not very user friendly. It can be very difficult to find information on the machine and/or projects.
Friday, February 2, 2018

Absolutely love my machine, wish I had more time to play with it. Retirement is only 10 months away
Good Investment
Friday, February 2, 2018

I'm so happy with this machine! From embroidery, to quilting, to garment making there seems to be nothing I can't do easily with the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000.
Love My Josephine - Janome 15000
Saturday, February 3, 2018

My machine sews well. It is not finiky nor is it delicate - it is a workhorse. It understands what automatic tension is - I use 12/30 wt threads with no problems. I have had her for over 4 years now and am still as happy as the first day I brought her home. A smile automatically comes to may face when I sit at my machine and marvel at what we are about to create.
Saturday, February 3, 2018

Love my 15000. Have had it for 2 years . Great for quilting and piecing. adjust for various types of threads and fabrics. Still have lots to learn and experiment with for embroidery work.
MC 15000
Saturday, February 3, 2018

My first Janome was the 12000 but when a delightful Janome Educator came to our local shop to introduce the 15000, I moved up. The 12000 was great but the 15000 is beyond words. I was thrilled that Janome let us upgrade to the Quiltmaker version 3. I quilt, sew garments, embroider and make gifts with ease on the 15000. I do own a Skyline 7 as a second machine which is pretty sweet. I sew clothes and toys for two young grandchildren. I have been making my own jeans this past fall, 4 pairs and planning for more. The new HP foot makes stitching the flat-felt seams a breeze. I love embroidering designs on my jeans and t-shirts. I embroider my quilt labels. The Accufeed system is wonderful for Walking Foot Quilting and piecing too! I have made several of the projects from this site which have turned out terrific. Most importantly the 15000 is a joy to use.
Very nice machine
Saturday, February 3, 2018

Have had my machine for a while, but due to life and such...haven't been able to sew as much as I would have liked. So far, very easy and and can't wait to use all the ipad apps and the embroidery, as all I have ever done is quilting or embroidery. Looks like it can handle it all...Nice to have and know it can do whatever I want.

Saturday, February 3, 2018

I love my machine. I would definitely consider myself a novice sewer but this machine is easy to learn. I thought that maybe it would just be too advanced but it’s not. It’s an amazing machine and I love learning. I’ve owned it for almost 2 years now and am fortunate to have a dealer that offers a variety of classes so that I can learn as much as possible. I love Janome and my MC15000!!!

Saturday, February 3, 2018

I cannot say enough good things about my Janome 15000, especially after the update to the Quilt Maker version. It is easy to use, accommodates any changes I want to make to a stitch or stitch pattern and the embroidery always comes out clean and professional. i love showing all that it can do to those in my sewing groups. 2 of them actually did buy one after seeing mine in action and some of the finished projects. Just love it!
Saturday, February 3, 2018

I love my Janomes. They run quietly and stitching is perfect with so many options. My HMC15000 has everything, and then some, a home embroidery machine owner could want.

This is such a great machine. Very sturdy and versatile. Has so many features that any seamstress would love. Does a beautiful job embroidering. A well spent purchase.
Inspired by my MC15000
Sunday, February 4, 2018

I have always loved embroidering and did it by hand for many years. With my MC15000 I have been able to take my embroidery to a new level and mix it with my love for sewing because with new techniques I'm learning I can create things in the hoop. But the beauty of the MC15000 is that it is also a sewing machine and with a few simple adjustments, I can go from embroidering to sewing for those projects that aren't completely in the hoop. I felt intimidated at first because it is such a high tech machine, but I got some free lessons at the dealer and the manual. Between those two sources, I have found the answers to any questions I've had since buying this great machine!
Monday, February 5, 2018

I love my 15000, have only had for 1 year so still learning, can't wait until spring and warm weather no snow then I can get some lessons from a new dealer.

Monday, February 5, 2018

I really love my 15000, especially since the needle threader is fixed. It's not perfect but a whole lot better I really appreciate Janome for free updates, I feel this make my investment more valuable. The Apps are awesome they are definitely a must have.
Monday, February 5, 2018

I love my 15000. It’s easy to use, beaytiful stitches, and a great footprint for my limited space.
Tuesday, February 6, 2018

I Love, Love, Love my 15000.This is my third Janome Embroidery machine. I don't know of anything you could do to make it better. This will be my last Embroidery Machine they can't get any better than the 15000.
Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Annabelle, my MC15000, is superb! She has several sisters in the sewing room who all have the last name of Janome. Annabelle embroiders beautifully, pieces and quilts my quilts, and flawlessly handles all the projects my mind can think up. Her needle threader was a problem, but that was solved when she was upgraded to the Quiltmaker. I love Annabelle. She comes from a long line of great ancestors.
Friday, February 9, 2018

I upgraded to the 15000 from the 9000. I loved the 9000 and this one is even better. The only thing I have had issues with is the needle threader. I upgraded the machine this week to Quilt Maker and can't wait to see what it can do now,

Friday, February 9, 2018

I have owned my 15000 for several years. I LOVE this machine. From piecing to quilting edge to edge this baby never fails! The stitching is beautiful every time! And it's so adventurous, it's always ready for whatever I come up with!
Sunday, February 18, 2018

I have had my 15000 for over a year now and am very happy with it. My only problem is there are not enough hours in the day for me to be sewing on it. :)
Got the upgrade - on my third needle threader after "upgrade"
Monday, March 19, 2018

I paid for the Quiltmaker upgrade. The needle threader had worked flawlessly for a year when I got the upgrade. The first upgraded threader did not work even once for me. I had it fixed again and it worked well for a few weeks. Now it does not thread the needle again.
Great Machine
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

I've had Janome machines since 2003. Love their stitching, embroidery, sturdy machines. The only problem, and it is a consistent one, that I have with the 15000 is the threader. Most of the time it doesn't work.
