The Janome MC500E is literally flying out our doors as quick as it is coming in by the container load from Janome……seriously! Actually it is not really a surprise as this brand new embroidery-only machine is a smoking hot deal with FOUR hoops included with the machine as well as many other top-of-the-line features.
The largest hoop is almost as large as the biggest hoop with our Janome MC15000 top-of-the-line machine so neither wonder so many people are banging down their dealer’s doors to get their hands on one of these machines (well not literally of course!)
Not only are there BIG hoops included, but you also get a huge big extension table for this embroidery machine included too! It has fold-out legs and fits beautifully around the machine to give an extra-large surface to support the embroidery hoops. Hoop sizes are: 5.5×5.5 inches up to 7.9×11 inches. You asked for bigger hoops and you got them! The screen is large and in lovely bright color. The machine stitches up to 860spm and has 160 built-in embroidery designs. Of course, it is a easy as saying USB to import more designs into the machine so there are no limits to how many wonderful embroideries you can stitch out.
One VERY cool feature is the ability to directly input a stitch number. Let’s say the design has 23,475 stitches and you want to get to stitch #16,239……No problem: touch the applicable icon on the touch screen and type in your magic #. The needle is now set to start stitching at that exact stitch. Very slick and impressive.
I am also extremely pleased to see we have trace and basting function on this machine so I can continue to hoop my stabilizer only and then baste my fabric on top of the hooped stabilizer. Basting is a wonderful feature……couldn’t manage without it like heated car seats in winter?!
