    Quilted Pouch Tutorial by Jessee Maloney

    When Janome contacted Jessee Maloney of Art School Dropout to test drive the new Horizon Memory Craft 9400 and create a project with it, she expected a nice machine, but what she got instead was pure amazing!

    Jessee loved the features on the MC9400. The large space and extension table were very useful and she was also impressed with the amount of LED lights above the throat area and needle. Jessee also mentioned in her review that over the years, she has seen machines eat thin fabric because the feed dog area holes were just too big. She was excited to see that Janome offers more than one needle plate with great positioning of holes to feed fabric quickly and smoothly. Not a single piece of fabric was eaten up when using the MC9400.

    In addition, Jessee enjoyed the numerous amount of stitch options on the MC9400. She liked how the machine told her exactly what foot to use when she chose the stitch. She was able to complete her Quilted Pouch project with ease as the machine is super fast and the two thread cutter options made everything so much more convenient.
