I am currently traveling around Western Canada doing JANOME MC 15000 Launch parties at selected Janome Dealers stores. I am just LOVING the new JANOME HORIZON MC15000…I have actually been sewing a LOT on it since I was privileged to go to Japan in June to receive training in advance of the launch on October 1st. It would be an understatement to say that I was “blown away”! It is truly one heck of a machine. AND the response to the machine has been quite overwhelming……..we are selling out of shipments before the containers even reach our shores here in Canada!
It has all been SO exciting that I decided I would spent the next few weeks listing my FAV FEATURES on this incredible machine for you. Here goes with Part 1:
It would NOT be a lie to say that I have been wanting to have an iPad for a very long time……. Well, I am super pumped to tell you that I now have an iPad to demonstrate to you all just how incredibly fantastic the 2 APP’s are: This is a JANOME EXCLUSIVE feature. There are 2 FREE apps for you to download from iTunes: AcuEdit & AcuMonitor. WOW!!!!! this will revolutionaize the way you edit & embroider.
Ok, so not only can you edit designs on the HUGE 9 inch screen on the JANOME HORIZON MC 15000, BUT you can also edit on your iPad as well as on your computer with Horizon Link Suite software. So there are no less than THREE places to go to do your embroidery editing where all 480 built-in designs are ready waiting for you! And before you start asking……for a limited time we are offering a FREE iPad with the purchase of the JANOME MC15000. Is that not the coolest thing or what??? And The Horizon Link Suite software is INCLUDED with the machine……just install the CD containing the software onto your computer (laptop or desktop).
BY THE WAY: the screen on the JANOME MC15000 is the LARGEST screen on any embroidery machine currently on the domestic sewing machine market. It is the very latest technology with wonderful clarity and resolution …..it can read 16 MILLION COLOURS and is so clear you will hardly believe your eyes.
Another thing: you do NOT need to be connected to the JANOME MC 15000 when you do your editing in the AcuEdit App on the iPad. ALL 480 built-in embroidery designs are contained IN the App so you do not need to be concerned…it is all there ready for editing. You could be on a bus or plane or sitting on a beach having embroidery editing fun……miles away from your machine!
Have you looked at the blog posts during the month of October where I shared with you some of the wonderful samples we have created with this new JANOME MC 15000??? If not, you might like to scroll down the list OF Recent Posts on the blog home page and take a look.
NOW…..wait for it……………….The iPad connects WIRELESSLY to the MC15000 so that you do not need a USB stick, nor the cable, to transfer your designs to the JANOME MC15000. This is done effortlessly using the AcuEdit App. TOO COOL!
Of course you CAN also use a USB stick (up to 32 Gigs) and/or the cable provided with the machine to transfer your designs – you have many options!! AND you no longer have to create EMB folders on the USB stick for transferring designs either. Just drop them onto the stick & pop the stick into the machine! You may still use the EMB folders if you wish, but you no longer have to do so. This is a JANOME MC 15000 EXCLUSIVE FEATURE.
So, to recap: There are 2 USB ports + the cable port on the side of the machine PLUS you now have wireless iPad connection as well.
I like to watch TV in one room while my embroidery machine is in another room (much to my husband’s relief as he gets distracted by me sewing while he tries to watch TV!?) So I am wonderfully pleased by the fact that I can set the machine going with an embroidery & then go to the TV room with my iPad. The AcuMonitor APP monitors every stitch as my embroidery progresses in the other room. If I need to change a thread colour, or a thread breaks (these things do sometimes happen)….then I get a little signal on my iPad telling me of this. Man alive….am I loving this feature……..SO convenient!! No more annoying jumping up & down while watching TV just to go check the machine …….now I can monitor everything remotely with AcuMonitor app…….EXCLUSIVE TO THE JANOME MC15000.
