Automatic Plate Converter: Select a straight stitch and the Automatic Plate Converter (APC) changes the size and shape of the needle hole. When the needle is going up and down in a single spot, the needle plate operates best with a single small, round hole. This is especially important when you're using light fabrics, stitching at high speeds or doing free-motion quilting. Your fabric won't be pulled into the needle plate; it stays flat and smooth. Plate Markings: Sewing, and especially quilting, is all about precise measurement. The comprehensive markings on the Janome Horizon's needle plate and bed give you extra precision when and where it counts - right on the plate as you're making your stitches. You'll find markings on both sides of the needle for seams of all sizes. There are also special angle marks, cornering guides and needle drop lines. Superior Plus Feed System: The 7-piece feed dogs of the Superior Plus Feed System (SFS+) move parallel to the needle plate and in unison as they pull your fabric past the needle. This exclusive Janome design, sometimes called a box feed, increases the surface area in contact with the fabric. Combine this with the professional-grade good pressure, and the thickest canvas to the thinnest silk is fed without slipping or shifting. AcuFeed: When it's time to move a lot of layers at once, our AcuFeed System literally pulls it all together. With a wider stance and a more even pull, the AcuFeed foot feeds your top layer(s) of fabric past the needle in precise, parallel coordination with the bottom layer(s). Matching plaids and working with difficult fabrics, like laminate and suede, is frustration-free with AcuFeed.
The JNH MC7700QCP is built on the most popular Janome Memory Craft model ever for quilting and sewing. Janome has taken everything that sewists love about the Janome 6600P, added the features they've always wished it had (and thrown in a few more for good measure), and created what will become the most coveted machine in the sewing world!
When looking at the Janome New Home Memory Craft 7700QCP, Janome excellence is obvious from the outside - Superior Engineering provides innovative technological advantages. But this exterior quality is reinforced with amazing integrity on the inside. A cast metal frame provides trustworthy support - ensuring your Janome will stand any test. This die cast metal frame is unique in the sewing industry, and sets Janome products above our competition. It is the basis for the superior stability and quality of Janome products.
