Janome is an innovative leader in sewing machine design technology. Janome's company history dates back to 1920s Japan. The word Janome, believe it or not, means "eye of the snake" in Japanese. Janome chose this name when they began using a round 15 class metal bobbin system instead of the traditional long shuttle type. The Japanese thought the round bobbin resembled a snake eye. In 1960, Janome Sewing Machine Company purchased the New Home Company of Massachusetts and entered the United States market. Today, Janome has sewing divisions in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Janome made sewing machine history in 1979 when it introduced the Memory 7 model, the first programmable, computer sewing machine ever. In addition to manufacturing sewing machines, Janome is also a world-leader in the production of high precision robots.
Janome's leading product today is its Memory Craft line of sewing machines. Janome machines are tailored to individual or multi-task usages in embroidery, quilting and sewing. The Memory Craft 300E, for example, is the first Memory Craft intended exclusively as an embroidery machine. Use it to make something spectacular out of everyday items. The Memory Craft 3000 is a computerized sewing and quilting unit. This model provides Janome quality at a good value. It features 31 pre-programmed stitches, including 3 automatic buttonhole stitches. An LCD display makes choosing the right stitch easy.
The Memory Craft 5700 does it all. This professional unit sews, embroiders and quilts. This unit has an LCD screen and it works together with the optional Customizer 2000 to help you create amazing embroidery design. This sewing machine has features normally found in only the best machines. A speed control lever let you pick the stitch speed that's right for you.
