What is New on the MC15000 Quilt Maker?

 

Tapered Stitch Mode

Add precise detail to your next project with the enhanced tapering stitch function. Top-stitching, applique or cornering can now benefit from the professional degree of finishing that a tapered stitch can provide. Choose from a broad selection of taper-ready stitches, set the desired stitch angle and number of pattern repeats or mirror image a design to suit your sewing needs.

.

Ruler Quilting

Expand your quilting options and take advantage of the wide array of precision templates on the market for ruler-guided quilting. Engage the Ruler Work mode in Sewing Applications and use the new Ruler Work foot (QR) to safely follow along the guiding edge of precision cut templates. Achieve beautiful and consistent quilting design results previously only available to longarm quilters.

.

Variable Zig Zag – Open Toe Foot

The new open toe Variable Zigzag (VZZ) foot (QZ) makes it easy to follow your stitch progress when using this unique Janome function. See precisely where you wish to widen or narrow your zig zag stitch with the hands-free adjustment of the knee lifter.

.

Quarter Inch Foot without Guide

Quilters know that a precise quarter inch seam is the key to precision-pieced patterns. Personal preference often dictates the just-right pairing of sewist and accessory foot to achieve those results. The new flangeless Quarter Inch foot removes the guide from Janome’s traditional O foot for improved visibility and exact seam placement.

.

Professional Grade Foot and Needle Plate

Experience industrial-style precision sewing of curves and top-stitching with the unique Professional Grade foot and needle plate combination. Inspired by the narrow gauge of industrial accessory feet and the ideal conditions of straight stitching from the left needle position, the HP foot offers superior visibility and control. The added benefit of being able to sew precise quarter-inch seams with this foot makes it a winning addition to the quilter’s tool box.

.

AcuSketch App

Craft original embroidery and quilting designs with the touch of a finger using the exclusive AcuStitch app. Work with a blank canvas or trace over your favourite photos or children’s drawings to create limitless straight-stitch designs for truly personal embroideries. Enjoy the power of quilting with embroidery by turning a doodle into a quilt design that you can repeat over multiple blocks. Send designs over Wi Fi to save on your 15000. Fun for all ages.

Light Bar Progress Indicator

The attractive detail of the 15000’s multi-color light bar takes on a new level of functionality as the light can now be used as a visual guide to design completion. Track the progress of a design by the movement of the light within the bar on the face of the machine.

.

AcuStitch Tool

Convert select ordinary stitches into embroidery stitches and arrange them along precisely sized lines and circles with perfection. Eliminate the guesswork of trying to calculate the necessary number of pattern repeats to beautifully outline and enhance circular motifs.
