JANOME MACHINE MODEL OF THE MONTH

We announce another new blog series on janomelife: JANOME MACHINE MODEL OF THE MONTH. Each month we will focus on a different Janome machine model in this monthly blog slot offering information, possibly hints and tips for this machine as well as possibly offering project ideas for some models. If you would like us to spotlight a current Janome model, do drop us a note in the comment box. We will try our best to accommodate you though please note that as we are a Canadian based blog, we may not be able to offer a spotlight on models not currently available in Canada.

This month we focus on the new Janome Horizon MC9450.  Watch this video.This machine has all of the great features which are found on the Janome Horizon MC9400 PLUS some wonderful new features. Check out this link

  1. The MC9450 has brighter LED lighting – 1.5 times brighter
  2. It has the Acufeed Flex HP2 foot  – scroll down on this link for a video of this incredible foot in action. 
  3. The Tapering function has been added.

  4. There is a lock stitch on/off icon
  5. Auto power off has been added: a first for Janome: set your Janome MC9450  to switch off automatically at a selection of pre-set times…….just like your iron in case you forget to switch off?!
  6. New Thread guide #7 for improved threading. 
  7. Janome Mc9450 includes the QR Ruler work foot and more.

Watch this video with Kimberly Einmo on the accessories which come with the new Janome Horizon MC9450.

      Hi Katherine,

      The MC9450 now come standard with all the feet and features that the Upgrade to the MC9400 offered. The lighting is 1,5 times brighter. The tapering function has been added. It in luges the new HP2 Acufeed Flex foot and has dual voltage.

    Would like better explanation of how the tapering works when using an applique stitch and stitching down a applique. How do you know when to taper it for measurements. Find it confusing do video would be great..

    Good chilly morning from Deep River, Ontario
    As a new sewer, I am besotted with my Skyline S3. All the models you feature look great but are much more than I need, so I am hoping you might consider featuring the S3 for those of us who are still learning or have limited uses. Also, one question, please: would attaching a ViviLux 3-in-1 Laser System (3 Laser guidelines) be harmful to my S3? I am concerned about the effect of the laser on my S3 computer mechanism. Thank you.

      Hi Nora,

      We can certainly look at featuring the S3 at some point this year in this new monthly slot. I am sorry but I don’t know what the Vivilux equipment is. I think the best would be to email our Tech support dept and ask them this: tech_support@janome-america.com.

      Do Keep warm. I just spent 2 weeks in Ontario and I can assure you that it was a shock to my West Coast body! It is a balmy 7 degrees here in Vancouver this morning….raining as it often is this time of the year…..although it is predicted to be a lot colder for the next few days.

    I have the 9400 and have been considering the upgrade kit which gives you some of the new features on the 9450. However I understand that this eliminates the auto presser foot up function, which I love on my 9400. Is that correct? If so, is this a setting which you have the ability to change the default back to the original after you upgrade? Thank! Love my 9400!

      Hi Suzie,

      You are incorrect. The MC9450 definitely has auto presser foot lift. You simply switch it on & off with the icon at the top of the screen. On both MC9400 and MC9450.

    I would love a review of the Skyline S7. I am in the market for a new machine to take when I travel. I purchased the Memory Craft 9400 last September, 2018 as a result of a quilting cruise I took & was provided the MC9400 to sew on during the cruise. I immediately fell in love with it & do not regret my purchase for one second. It is a fabulous sewing machine. I’ve done a lot of research relative to a good travel machine & feel the S7 would be a perfect fit for me. There are so many features of my MC9400 that I want on my travel machine and, thus, the reason I feel the S7 would be a great machine. Please consider this as a machine to review if this is a machine offered and sold in Canada. Thank you!

      Hi Betsy,

      We can possibly do something on the S7 although we have offered lots previously on this blog on the S7. Just do a search in the search box for Skyline S7 and all applicable posts will come up. Or website also offers lots of information on all our current models http://www.janome.ca > Products tab > machines. You might also wish to consider the brand new Skyline S6 which is pretty cool. And yes, the entire Skyline range S3, S5, S6, S7 and S9 are all available in Canada.

      Hi Kate

      The MC6600P is no longer a current model in Canada but might I suggest you do a search in the search box on our janomelife home page as there are bound to be posts about this model? We have been publishing informative posts since 2010! Alternatively, do a google search or watch you tube video’s. Search specifically for 6600P. I am quite sure there is lots of information available on this model.

    I thank you for this! I have a 8200QCP and would love to have one of these focused on this machine. Perhaps if you don’t want to post send to me directly. The store I used closed down and this would help me on a daily basis to refer to. Thank you very much I LOVE MY MACHINE & not in the market for new one!
