Doing larger and more thread-intensive embroidery in a single design layout. Importing and combining designs for a total stitch count of up to 200,000. Stitching out at up to 1000 stitches per minute. Connecting with my iPad® or PC wirelessly. All this with the quality Janome is famous for. I want to go bold and beautiful.

Connects Wirelessly to Your iPad®, Laptop & PC Via Your Home's Wireless Connection
Your machine is designed to work with your favorite tech devices without having to hook up a bunch of cables. The MC15000 has built-in wireless connectivity to your laptop, your PC, and now, via the AcuMonitor™ and AcuEdit™ apps included with purchase, to your iPad®.
Create Design Layouts with The AcuEdit™ App
It's like opening up the touch screen on your iPad®. This app utilizes the complete MC15000 embroidery editing suite. AcuEdit™ functions include: Move, Rotate, Enlarge/Reduce, Mirror image, Vertical flip, Centering, Cornering, Copy and Paste, monogramming tools, and more. Users can import designs from the machine to the app and then send back the finished layout when it's ready to be stitched out.
AcuEdit™ is easy to use and yet powerful enough to create complex design layouts.
Check Embroidery Progress With The AcuMonitor™ App
While your MC15000 is embroidering away in your sewing room, take your iPad® to the kitchen and still keep tabs on the stitch out. AcuMonitor™ is the app designed to monitor your machine using your home's wireless network. You can use it to check embroidery progress, check your machine's status, and view a list of all thread colors for the design which is being embroidered.
Our Super-Precise Embroidery Unit Gives You Fantastic Stitch Quality
Janome Memory Craft embroidery machines have always set the standard for professional-quality embroidery. And the unit on the MC15000 takes this legacy even further. The unit utilizes three Linear Motion Guides with five ball bearing blocks to give an extremely stable and accurate embroidery motion. The result is embroidery stitch quality you simply can't find on any other brand.
Created using technology developed for high precision industrial robots, the embroidery mechanism movement is accurate to within hundredths of an inch. Yet it is so stable and reliable, it comes with a 25 year warranty against mechanical failure. And you can leave it on when you're doing your regular sewing.
The Bigger Screen Makes The On-Screen Embroidery Tools Even Easier
One of the reasons for the bigger, higher resolution screen is to make your onscreen editing as effortless as possible. Using your finger or the provided stylus, you can quickly create embroidery layouts. All your standard editing tools are included--like Cut, Copy, Paste, Duplicate, Rotate, etc. Plus advanced tools like Cornering, Centering, Letter Arcing & Spacing, and Color Sorting to group your thread colors for fewer thread changes.
New Faster Processor Speeds Your Embroidery Tasks
The MC15000 has a new internal processor that's twice as fast as its predecessor. You'll notice onscreen changes happen more quickly, especially in processor-intensive tasks like embroidery design transfers. This means you can open designs from your USB drive to your Ready to Sew screen 30% faster. Save designs to your USB drive 50% faster. And import designs from your USB drive to your Edit screen 370% faster.
Create with 480 Built-In Designs, Including Hundreds of New Ones
It's easy to import designs to the MC15000, but it comes with so many built-in designs, you won't have to go searching elsewhere for the perfect one. Divided into 15 categories, the designs have been optimized for the five embroidery hoops or to be used as elements in building a larger design. Choose from Redwork, Sashiko, Home Décor, Holiday, Tulle Lace, Border Designs, Cross Stitch Designs & Alphabet, Quilting Designs, and many more.
Monogram with 10 Different Fonts
It's easy to embroider 2 or 3 letter monograms. Choose your lettering from 10 different alphabets and your borders from 46 different motifs.
Choose From Exclusive Designs By Well-Known Designers
The built-in library includes embroidery created by well-known designers. Leah Day, Lonni Rossi, Jenny Hart, and Noriko Nozawa have each contributed five designs. Not only are these exclusive to the MC15000, but they've each been optimized for stitch-out on this machine.
Create Designs with Up To 200,000 Stitches
You can now create much larger, more thread-intensive embroidery in a single design layout. Import and combine designs with a total stitch count of up to 200,000. And then stitch them out at up to 1000 stitches per minute.
Get Into Tight Spaces with Free Arm Embroidery
At just 3.9" x 1.6" the tiny Free Arm Hoop lets you put embroidery on pockets, cuffs, and collars without having to take the item apart.
Smarter Design Import via USB Drive
Your machine can import designs directly off a USB flash drive. No need to connect your computer just to transfer designs. Use your PC or laptop to find a design or even a whole layout you want to use. Save it to a USB stick. Plug it into the MC15000. Open with the on-screen layout tools, and you’re good to go. It's that simple.
Design Embroidery & Stitches On Your PC With The Powerful New Horizon Link™ Suite Software
The improved Horizon Link™ Suite Software includes: the EmbLink Tool for design and remote operation of MC15000, PatternCombo Tool for combining stitches, AcuFil Tool for creating stippling in the hoop, StitchComposer for creating your own stitches, ScreenSaver Tool to create your own custom screen saver on the MC15000, and more.
Enjoy The New Easy Needle Threader
No matter how high tech your sewing machine, you want this basic task to be as easy as possible. The MC15000 has an improved needle threader that makes it truly hands free. Push a button, and the machine does the rest. You'll appreciate this new design with every thread change.
Creating my design, choosing my colors, changing my mind, trying something new... and ending up with a work of fabric art that’s uniquely mine. I might be a modern stylist one day and a traditionalist the next, but the stitching has to be smooth and even every time. I want to choose a creative direction and follow it wherever it leads me.
Big Quilt? No Problem
Smooth Free Motion Quilting
The stitching is incredibly precise, and this machine has the quiet power for hours of effortless free motion quilting. Set the speed for your comfort level. Choose your stitch and press the Start/Stop button. You have everything you need to lose yourself in smoothly drawn patterns and swirls.
Free motion quilting is an exciting creative form many quilters love. Because the MC15000 gives you a feeling of easy control, it's the ideal machine for this technique. You can select a sewing speed as slow as 60 spm all the way up to 1060 spm. No matter the speed you choose, the stitch mechanism on the MC15000 is so precise and smooth. And with the exclusive Variable Zigzag function, a quilter can begin with a straight stitch and gradually widen to a zigzag (and back again), all while the machine is sewing. The width of the zigzag is controlled by the knee lifter.
Design On A Bigger, More Vivid Touch Screen
When you sit down at the Horizon Memory Craft 15000, the first thing you notice is how big and bright the touchscreen is. With a full 800 x 480 pixel resolution and the capability of displaying more than 16,000,000 colors, it's like working with your favorite tablet computer. The screen is responsive to your lightest touch. Everything is where you expect it to be, making your creative process effortless and fun.
Use Embroidery Designs Created Just For Quilting
The MC15000 comes with dozens and dozens of designs that are especially formatted to fit in a quilt square (the shape of 3 of the embroidery hoops). From traditional favorites to modern motifs, you'll find just what you'll need for your project. And the hundreds of other designs include border designs, lettering, and other "parts" for putting together completely unique layouts.
Stipple Without A Long Arm Using AcuFil™ Quilting
Embroidery for quilting has its own requirements, and the MC15000 was designed with these in mind. Three of its five embroidery hoops are square to accommodate quilt designs. It also comes with the AcuFil™ software suite, which allows you to create precisely-matched stippling across an entire quilt top, one hooping at a time. The result is so perfectly aligned, it looks like the technique was done by an expert using a huge quilt frame.
The AcuFil™ Quilting system is built into the MC15000, with an accompanying software package you run on your PC.
You begin by entering your quilt dimensions into the AcuFil™ Calculator (up to 10' x 10'). The software calculates the exact stippling stitches to perfectly cover your entire quilt top. And you have many options at each step. Choose from dozens of embroidery quilting designs and stippling patterns to customize your quilt top.
Quilt Through The Thickest Layers with No Shifting, Using The AcuFeed Flex™ Feeding System
The AcuFeed Flex™ fabric feeding system lets you quilt through multiple, thick layers with perfect precision. It utilizes two widths of sewing feet. And you can easily detach it from your machine when you're not using it.
The Dual Feed Twin Type feet take full advantage of the MC15000's 9mm stitch width. Using both of the upper feed dogs in conjunction with the lower feed dogs, they give you extra feeding traction.
The Dual Feed Single Type feet give you precise feeding while allowing you to get in close for things like attaching piping or installing zippers.
Extra Large Foot Controller with Remote Thread Cutter
This new quick-response foot control gives you more room for your foot while also giving you a more sensitive response. The remote thread cutter pedal can be mounted on either side of the pedal and is perfect for free motion quilting.
See Your Work with New Clarity: High Light™ & AcuView™ System
The MC15000 has an extensive LED lighting system. Using 10 lights in 5 locations, it's designed to give you a shadow-free work space. But sometimes you need greater illumination around the needle area. And that's where the HighLight comes in (or pulls out). Just extend this retractable lamp and aim it up or down, depending where you need the light. When you're done, it slides back into its slot.
The AcuView™ magnifier now comes with three different lenses from which to choose. They each pivot on a special patent-pending mount located above the presser foot to give you a close-up view of the sewing area.
Change Your Needle Plate in One Quick Step
There are times when a straight stitch needle plate with its smaller needle hole really makes a difference: for piecing quilts, sewing light fabric, or doing embroidery. This machine comes with the needle plate system you can switch in just seconds. Instead of undoing screws, simply push one lever to release the installed plate, then snap the new plate in place.
The MC15000 includes both standard and straight stitch plates. Because of their innovative design and unique quilting guide lines, these needle plates have been awarded a patent.
Understanding that the easier the tools are to use, the more creative I can become. Giving me the speed, precision and built-in options to take off on my own. Guaranteeing the highest level of reliability and ease-of-use right out of the box. I want quality, variety and innovation. I want a machine that thinks like me.
Nothing Matters More Than Stitch Quality
When we ask Janome customers to name the one thing they love most about their Memory Craft machines, they always answer, "the quality of the stitches." The MC15000 furthers that legacy with industrial-quality stitches that give everything you make a professional finish.
Choose From 500 Stitches, Many 9mm Wide
This machine has the most sewing and decorative stitches ever on a Memory Craft. Choose from Heirloom, Appliqué, Satin, Quilting, Decorative, Play, Utility, and more. Many are 9 mm wide for a bigger, bolder effect. In addition the MC15000 has 13 buttonholes for every kind of application.
Easily Edit and Combine Stitches
Each stitch is easily modified for length and width. Dozens of them can be flipped horizontally or vetically. And you can combine various stitches to make custom sequences that can be immediately stitched out or saved to memory.
Create Your Own Custom Stitches On Your PC with Stitch Composer™ Software
Design your own original decorative stitches from scratch. Using the updated Stitch Composer™, it’s easier than ever. And your Memory Craft 15000 can use your new creation just like one of its own built-in stitches, altering length and width and adding it to combinations.
Vary The Width of Your ZigZag While You Sew
It's a unique decorative effect. With this feature enabled, you begin sewing with a straight stitch. Then widen to a 9mm zigzag without stopping or ever taking your hands off your fabric. With Variable Zigzag, you use the knee lifter to broaden and taper stitches as you go.
Sew and Embroider at Up To 1,060 Stitches Per Minute
Those long seams and large embroidery designs get done quickly at 1,060 spm. But almost as important, the MC15000 can be set to sew very slowly as well--down to 60 spm--when you need it. Either way you still get excellent stitch quality.
Enjoy The Quiet
Listen to soft music while you sew. The MC15000 runs so precisely, it doesn't make a lot of noise. Compare the sound of this machine running at full speed to any other brand and you'll hear the difference.
The Power to Handle Heavy Fabric And Thick Seams
With a powerful motor and precise Superior Plus Feeding System, the MC15000 sews easily through the thickest fabrics. An improved Automatic Presser Foot Pressure function detects the thickness of your fabric and adjusts the pressure accordingly. It can apply up to 4.5 lbs of pressure, if needed.
91 Needle Positions
You don’t have to settle for “close enough.” Thanks to a 9mm stitch width, the Memory Craft 15000 is capable of more precise detail than ever on every decorative stitch. Position the needle with unprecedented accuracy for smoother transitions and perfect curves.
Choose from 13 Styles of Buttonholes
With such a large selection you're sure to find just the right one for your project. The new Buttonhole Foot with its Stabilizer Plate makes it easy to create the perfect style and size of buttonhole, even across seams.
Lots of Work Space Without Dominating Your Work Space
There's a 17.25 bed with 11" to the right of the needle, so you have plenty of space for projects of virtually any size. But the machine itself, even with the embroidery unit in place, is just 24" wide.
