This is to pull things together and review the MC12000 AcuFil™ Quilting Kit  which was launched in July last year: I get asked so many questions and I know I have featured this incredible Acufil Quilting system quite a few times – the post last Friday shows a list of all the posts I have done on this topic so far + where to find them.

I also found this great summary on the Janome America website and thought I would share it in case you have not already seen it. You might like to bookmark this post so that you can refer back to it………It is loaded with information and links to video’s and more.  Thank you to Janome America for this good information.


The AcuFil™ Quilting Kit is an optional accessory that adds a whole new way to finish quilt tops on your Horizon Memory Craft 12000.

You create your stippling layout on your computer, print a template, and send the design to your MC12000 for stitching. The stippling across your whole quilt is so accurately placed, it looks like it was done on a longarm machine.                   (NO kidding….I second that for sure!!   Liz)

The kit comes with a collection of 70 designs, including Stippling Designs, Feathers, Free Motion Style Motifs, Stipple Fills and selected MC12000 Quilting Designs. Choose from both free standing designs and combinable design elements. All ready to be stitched out with unmatched Janome quality.  ( I printed the PDF showing all these Quilting designs out right away, popped it into a page protector & voila…… It is at my – Liz’s – fingertips!)

See the complete AcuFil™ Quilting Kit design collection as a PDF file.

Along with the Design Collection, the kit includes two other major components: –AcuFil™ Quilting Tool software, which makes it easy to create stippling layouts to cover your entire quilt as well as other embroidery layouts for quilt sqares. –AcuFil™ Square Quilting Hoop (8.7″ x 8.7″), which uses our exclusive magnetic clamps.

It’s everything you need for beautiful stippling in the hoop.
