I love my Memory Craft 9900. I find it very user friendly. The sewing features are wonderful. Perfect stitching. The embroidery is flawless.

I love my 9900. It is an awesome little machine. I use it to take to class because it is small and not as heavy as my 12000. It can do everything the big machines can do only it is smaller. I love having it as my back up machine when the big one is in for cleaning too, because it can do sew much I don't miss the big machine. I keep right on sewing... Love my 9900!!! Deb Poe

This is the first Janome that I have own. I have had it for a little over a year now. I have mostly done embroidery for my grandkids and great-granddaughter. I have done their names on quilts and pillow cases I have even done the labels on the back of quilts. I have done a few other designs and always looking for more. It is a great machine to work with!

I have used my 9900 for several years now.I am very happy with it. I sew , quilt and embroider a lot. I have done a lot of embroidery for special projects The last was for the hero flight out of Dawson county Nebraska. I embroidered HERO FLIGHT 2016 plus the travelers name on back packs that a young girl made as a 4H project. The machine did a wonderful job. I am so happy that I chose the Janome brand and have recommended it to everyone I can.
Most versatile machine for the money
Thursday, September 7, 2017

I've had my 9900 about 2 years and have been absolutely delighted with it. And I'm familiar with many makes and models of machines. If you want a solid, excellent quality sewing machine that also does embroidery - without spending a fortune - take a close look at this model. I've done a variety of sewing projects on mine, including garments, home dec, quilting and embroidery and it has performed flawlessly. It's a beautiful looking machine too, and you can change its color! Janome accessories are great and won't break the bank either. I especially love the accuracy of its 1/4" piecing. The machine is simple to learn. There is a little t shirt icon that takes you into all the most common types of sewing and their setup. I like that the stylus has its own little groove to rest in at the top of the machine. The only thing I would change if I could is not having to unplug the foot control in order to use the stop/start button for sewing. However, it's still one of my all time faves.
Great Sewing and embroidery machine
Tuesday, July 2, 2019

I have had this machine for over 8 years now and love it. I used it for sewing and it was so easy to make anything from skirts to dress and for alterations. I just started using it exclusively for embroidery. It took time to learn how to transfer using the flash drive but now it is so easy and I love the results. (I ALSO LEARNED THAT THIS MACHINE IS VERY PICKY ABOUT USING EMBROIDERY BOBBIN THREAD THE PRE-WOUND JANOME WORKS BEST but they are expensive . You are better buying 60 weight thread and winding it your own bobbins. The bobbins thread is the key to creating a masterpiece or a wasteful disaster.) Hope that helps.
