Janome Memory Craft 4900QC Sewing Machine

Product information

The Memory Craft 4900QC (Quilter's Companion) is a machine made especially for quilting as well as sewing. It has an extra large, backlit LCD display with easy-to-follow icons. It’s easy to select the huge number of stitches: you can even customise stitch combinations then save them to a memory bank. And with Previous Setting Recall, the MC4900QC remembers the last stitch that was sewn, even after it’s been turned off.

For big projects the 4900QC is well equipped. There are 188 built-in stitches, 3 alphabet styles (including foreign letters) and a choice of 10 buttonhole styles. You’ll also appreciate the twin lamps that make detailed stitching well illuminated.

Having a full rotary, horizontal, magnetic hook system means this Janome provides a whisper-quiet and smooth operation. A stop/start button gets you going quickly; electronic foot speed control gives you excellent control, even at lower speeds; integrated drop feed gives you free movement when quilting or embroidering; and automatic thread tension assures excellent stitch quality.

Additional Features on the Janome 4900QC include: pressure adjustment dial; mode button for quick access to stitches, alphabets and numbers; full editing of stitches (width, length and elongation); 7- piece feed dog; 2 accessory storage areas, quilter guide and embroidery hoop.

This machine is supplied with 13 accessory feet, which include standard, zipper, blind hem, buttonhole, overedge, even feed, satin stitch, hemmer 1/4" seam, 3 way cording, button sewing, embroidery and an overcasting foot.

Mesmerising machine. Great machine for either regular sewing or for your decorative quilting needs! This machine has a wide range of decorative stitches and comes with a big selection of feet attachments to make your life easier when sewing. The large and clear LED screen allows you to create your own boarder patterns and save them in the machines memory. You can easily spend hours with this machine being creative. 02 November 2011
The ultimate dream machine! Possibilities are simply endless with the Janome 4900 Model! Not only it is fantastic for exploring and experimenting but also its ease of sewing quickly and professionally. One of the many things I love about this model is how well it has been thought out, its ideal for someone who is highly experienced but also a learner who wants to extend their creativity, because of the personal touches and embroidery stitches the machine has to offer (i.e several types of alphabet and decorative stitches!). Being computerised, stitch quality is superb, thanks to the superior feed of fabric, whilst clever features make sewing a doddle: The start/stop button allows you to control your stitching with the touch of a button, so the foot pedal is no longer needed (but is included!). Other features include a lock in stitch button, to save you time going backwards and forwards to finish a stitch, speed control bar, an extention table and knee lift to make sewing larger projects more comfortable, and an internal memory so you can go back to projects you didn't manage to finish last week! The LED screen conveniently details the correct foot for the programmed stitch, and other setting information to get the best possible results. Additionally storage is no longer a problem for machine parts, as everything fits nicely into its integrated compartments, and comes complete with a durable hard cover. The list of features is endless, but overall I guarentee you will not be disappointed by this superb model, its certainly my dream machine! 22 September 2011
