This three-in-one machine opened up new worlds of creative possibility.
Do you remember when you first saw the Memory Craft 8000? This embroidery pioneer turns 21 this year!
It caused quite a stir in the sewing world when Janome released it in 1990. It was the first home sewing machine that would allow you to do professional-style embroidery. For the first time you could just bring up a design on the screen, hoop up your fabric, and stitch it out.
And it didn't even need a bulky embroidery attachment.
You could do multi-color embroidery designs. You could build a design library of Memory Cards. And with the Scan 'n Sew, you could scan any line art and turn it into a design.
The MC8000 was also the first of the three-in-one machines, where you could do sewing and quilting along with the embroidery. Just choose your function on the ultra-modern touchscreen. Its monogramming function was also very popular.
The Memory Craft 8000 was a best-seller and there are still sewists using theirs today. Now, more than 20 years later, the 4th generation Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition is Janome's top-of-the-line model.
