Free motion with Janome

We apologize…..we had some technical difficulties earlier today when our Janome Canada artisan, Kim, was going to do an Instagram Live for you.  So to make up for that, we offer the following links so you can get good information on this topic. Thanks, Kim, for compiling this list of links.

    Exactly what makes the (Horizon)MCP 8900QCP a Special Edition? My machine is labeled on the lower right corner Memory Craft 8900QCP and I might add there has been very little to no support for this machine from the dealer or US souces. This ‘Special Edition’ label confuses me and denotes a more sophisticated machine.

      Hi Pat,

      The Special Edition has a different colour: blue – which was just cosmetic. The main difference between the 2 is the Easy set needle plate and bobbin winder. Easier to set the bobbin; different Straight stitch plate for 1/4 inch piecing and new way of winding bobbins – no need to thread the bobbin thread through the little,hole,on the bobbin and thread cutter at the base of the bobbin Winder.
