LOVE my 15000,by far this is the best machine I have sewn on!! I finally made the decision to own it& have not regretted it at all...the apps are the best!! The accu feed is the best....

This is my first embroidery machine and I love it. I visited my local dealer looking for a serger and Helen said that if I really wanted to have fun, I should get the MC 15000. I walked out with it and have never looked back!

The best thing about the Horizon 15000 is that it is a Janome! It is quiet, but don't let its soft sound fool you...this machine is a sewing beast! There is NOTHING it can't handle, and I've put it through the ringer...from leather appliqué to mending tents. The embroidery is flawless, the quilting is superb, and normal sewing is a breeze. I try something new every day and it continues to surprise and delight me. Best machine EVER!

I have used the Janome 10001 for many years and recently upgraded to the 15000. I haven't used a lot of the features yet, but look forward to using all of them. It is such an easy machine to sew/quilt on. I have already gotten spoiled to many of the features the 10001 didn't have on it. I am so glad that I made this investment in the 15000.

I love the performance, features and options of this machine. I am learning new things that I can do with the machine all the time. Generally speaking it is a well made machine; but one irritating flaw. The needle threader just can't seem to work. I've had it in the shop and am getting ready to take it back in. After the last service (replaced that unit), it worked once. Speaking with another (she had her's in 3 times). The MC 15000 minus the needle threader is a great machine!

I have had three Janomes and love them... the one thing I notice with the MC15000 is that the thread comes out of the take-up lever often

I love my 15000. It does more than I can imagine and I'm learning new things all the time. It sews beautiful stitches and everything I do looks so professional. I had an 11000 prior, and the updates and features on this new machine are amazing. It's well thought out, planned, and designed. I'm a very happy customer.

The 15000 is simply a wonderful machine - easy to use, tons of features and beautiful stitches. I am so glad I own one.

Let me begin by saying I have been a Janome user since the 8000. The progression to the 15000 included the 9000, 10000, 11000 and 11000SE. I also went from Scan N Sew to Customizer, Digitizer and presently have the MBX5. To me the 15000 with wifi capabilities was a no brainier. My sewing skills vary from clothing, quilting, crafting, home deco and embroidery. The 15000 meets all those needs. It is a workhorse and a joy to sew with. It’s great working with the AccuMonitor, AccuSetter and AccuEdit Apps.

This machine is by far the Best Machine I have ever owned. I cannot think of any Quilting or Ebroidery task I would not be able to perform with this Super Machine. The Best Investment of my Quilting Life! People always comment at all the Wonderful functions the machine has and I smile proudly knowing I Have The Best Machine available. Thank You Janome

I LOVE the way the machine sews - quiet, uniform, good tension control, etc. I LOVE the decorative stitches and the programming capabilities. I LOVE the HorizonLink software and the ease of use to get the design to the machine. HOWEVER - The needle threader is useless. I have had it in for adjustment twice, and it does not work consistently. This is extremely frustrating to me, as when I spend this kind of money for a tool, I expect it to work. I should have listened to the gentleman that sold me the machine. He actually told me that if a needle threader is high on your list of must-haves, buy a different machine.

I absolutely love this machine! It sews like a dream and the embroidery is just beautiful. I only wish I was able to get hold of Janome by email or phone so that I could ask some questions about things that I can't find in the book or online. But the machine is just fabulous!

I really love my 15000, I'm a tech junkie so this really works for me. The biggest problem I am having is the needle threader. It does not work. I have had it taken in several times and had the threader unit replaced twice. We get it to work at the shop, I get it home it doesn't work. It's sort of on again off again, mostly off. With this machine being top of the line, and the investment involved all parts should work.
