The Memory Craft 9900 lets you take your creative expression in any direction you can imagine. All the best features are here for embroidery, garment sewing, dome décor, fabric crafting, and more.
All in a machine that's just the right size for any sewing space
Janome Quality Embroidery
The MC9900 has embroidery stitch quality that few top-of-the line machines can match. With a newly designed stitch mechanism and powerful onscreen editing, it's easy to get beautiful results.
All 65,356 Colors of the Rainbow
The high resolution touch screen can display more than 65 thousand colors. You get a true sense of the richness of your designs. And behind it all is a new high speed processor, making everything go faster.
Really Customize your Machine
You can now have your sewing machine match your creative frame of mind. Your MC9900 comes with three interchangeable face panels. And more colors are on the way. Plus you have other ways to customize.
Superior Plus Feed System
The seven point feed dogs stay parallel as they pull the fabric under the presser foot. This system is so precise, your straight stitches will go in the same holes forwards and backwards.
200,000 Stitch Capacity
The MC99000 can store and stitch out designs with up to 200,000 stitches. No competing model comes close. And you can embroider those complex designs at up to 800 stitches per minute.
Sewing Applications And Other Time Savers
Get onscreen help and the right setting for your project. The Sewing Applications section has 12 categories for the techniques you use most. It's just one of dozens of features on the MC9900 that make sewing easier.
One Step Needle Plate Conversion
For sewing light fabric or doing embroidery, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference. Now you can switch your needle plate in just seconds. Simply push one lever to release the plate, then snap the new plate in place.
9mm Wide Stitches
The extra width makes all your decorative stitches bolder and more distinct. Most of the 200 built-in stitches take full advantage of the 9mm width. Your machine comes with eleven presser feet designed for a 9mm stitch width.
175 Built-In Embroidery Designs
Most of these 175 designs are brand new, and the new menu includes a special selection of designs created by Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry. You also get lots of design parts, like corners and borders, for building larger layouts.
Cloth Guide Automatically Measures Your Seam Allowance
Put away the ruler. Your machine will measure your seam allowance up to 5.5" wide. It even measures 1/16" to the left of the needle. Simply attach it to the embroidery carriage and enter your measurement.
When used with straight or zigzag stitches, it locks off stitching immediately then automatically stops. For other stitches, the machine will complete the current pattern, lock off, then automatically stop.

The machine always stops with the needle in the Down position except when sewing buttonholes, specialty stitches, monograms, etc. However you can change the needle stop position to Up by pressing the needle up key.
Discover Embroidery That's Fun And Easy on the Memory Craft 9900
The Memory Craft 9900 has a sleek, detachable embroidery unit that slides onto the back of the machine--the same configuration as on our top-of-the-line Horizon Memory Craft 12000. The X axis carriage (for side-to-side movement) has a sturdier design for greater strength and improved stability. While the Y axis carriage has a Double Linear Motion Guide, which also improves stability and allows more precise movement.
Embroidery Features Include:
Even though the embroidery unit is easy to attach or detach, you can leave it on when doing regular sewing
MC9900 comes with two embroidery hoop sizes with magnetic clips
6.7" x 7.9" (170mm x 200mm)
5.5" x 5.5" (170mm x 170mm)
Also compatible with the optional Free Arm Embroidery Hoop FA10a 1.6" x 4" (40mm x 100mm)
Embroidery Quality and Speed
This machine really performs where it counts: gorgeous embroidery. When you stitch out a design on the MC9900, you're going to be impressed. It has such accurate movement, you can actually embroider lace designs on thicker organza with no stabilizer. This is for cases where you don't want the thread to stiffen up when you use water to wash away stabilizer.
And you get this excellent quality each and every time, from stitch-by-stitch to up to 800 stitches per minute.
Other Embroidery Features:
With more than 65 thousand colors, your touch screen becomes a vivid palette for creating design layouts. To help you get exactly what you want, the MC9900 comes with the same powerful onscreen editing package as the top-of-the-line Horizon Memory Craft 12000.
Embroidery Edit Functions:

Larger Stitch Capacity
Create designs with up to 200,000 stitches
One-Step Needle Plate Conversion

Sewing Success Is Built In To The Memory Craft 9900
Quiet, Powerful & Precise - With Top-of-the-Line Features.
Sewing Applications Menu
Don't you wish your machine knew a thing or two about sewing? The MC9900 has a Sewing Applications Menu, where you can choose the kind of technique you'll be using and the machine automatically will give you the optimal settings for your stitch, even recommending which foot to use. (Of course, you're always welcome to make any adjustments you like.)
Superior Plus Feed System
The seven point feed dogs stay parallel as they pull the fabric under the presser foot, giving them more consistent contact. Your fabric is fed through with unparalleled precision and your stitches are simply beautiful. With this system, the straight stitches will go in the exact same holes forward and backward – talk about accuracy!
One-Step Needle Plate Conversion
Pop up the regular plate. Snap in the straight stitch plate. The screen automatically disables all but the straight stitch options. You're ready to stitch on super lightweight fabrics or to handle many quilting stitch functions in seconds.
Easy Set Bobbin
This new kind of bobbin and plate gives you foolproof threading and means you don't have to drag thread tails out the back.
This button locks off stitching immediately when using straight or zigzag stitches, then automatically stops. When you're sewing any other stitch, the machine will complete the end of the current pattern, lock off, and then automatically stop.
Why are the buttonholes on the MC9900 so great? The machine uses a base stitch that secures the buttonhole underneath the satin stitching. You will really notice the difference. There are five One-Step buttonholes and one Auto buttonhole.
Useful Needle Plate Markings
Both needle plates have guidelines for 45°, 60°, and 90° angles that position the fabric exactly ¼" from the cut edge. You'll use these when you want precise quilt piecing or inset seams.
Adjustable Knee Lifter
Ergonomically designed and adjustable to best fit your sitting position. It allows you to control the presser foot lift with your knee so you can keep both hands on your project. Great for free motion work and appliqué.
Take under-the-needle precision to the next level with Janome exclusive Cloth Guide. This fantastic tool gives you an adjustable edge against which you run the raw edges of your fabric. Simply enter your seam allowance on the touch screen and the guide automatically moves into position for a perfect seam. You can even move 1/16" to the left of the needle!
New Bobbin Winder Design With Cutter
The new Bobbin Winder has a plate and cutting blade. The plate keeps your bobbins winding smoothly without the thread accidentally winding under the bobbin. The cutter is handy for cutting the thread without hunting for scissors.
Other Sewing Features:
Easy Blind Hem Settings
You can customize and create your perfect Blind Hem by adjusting the bite and the base line of the blind hem, then save the new settings to the machine's memory so you can use your favorite adjusted hem time and time again.
Seam Length Memory
The machine will memorize the length of your last seam stitched so it's ready to do all over again, exactly the same way. This is perfect for repetitive projects, like quilt piecing.
Appliqué Begin-at-the-Corner Capability
You can set an appliqué stitch to start right on a corner, eliminating the problem of fly out stitching. It's so easy and a beautiful start/finish to any appliqué design./li>
Double Needle Setting
When you're using a double needle, let the machine know and it will automatically adjust the decorative stitches to the correct width. This minimizes the chance of a broken needle.
Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure
You can now adjust the downward pressure of the presser foot from 1 to 7, depending on your fabric and technique. This gives you more accurate adjustment and greater pressure at the top end.
Upper Thread Guide Maintenance
The MC9900 makes maintaining and cleaning your Upper Thread Guide a breeze. The Upper Thread Guide Cover snaps off to allow you to use the lint brush to clean out any debris from the pretension, then simply replace the cover and you’re ready to sew!
Embroidery Designs & Decorative Stitches For All Your Creative Projects
Choose from 175 built-in embroidery designs, many of them brand new. These include a collection of exclusive designs by Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry. Jane's designs were created specifically for the MC9900, and she made sure each could not only be used on its own, but could also be combined to create larger design layouts. The intricacy and color detail are stunning.
Choose from 200 built-in stitches, including 5 One-Step buttonholes and 1 Auto buttonhole plus bar tack and darning stitches. 25 of these beautiful stitches can be flipped horizontally and vertically.
Browse and Edit 200 Built-In Stitches
The touch screen buttons take you through the major stitch categories. From there, you can quickly select the exact stitch you want. Stitch adjustments, such as length, width and tension are easy to adjust and save. You can also combine and customize stitches, then save the combos to the machine's memory for future use.
Import Designs Via USB Memory Stick
You don't need software to import embroidery designs into your MC9900. You can use a standard USB memory stick sold in any electronics section. Plug the USB memory stick into the machine; the MC9900 formats it, creating an EMB folder. When you then plug the stick into your computer - PC or Mac - you can simply drag the designs you keep on your computer into the stick's folder. Next, simply plug the stick back into the MC9900, access the design(s) via the touch screen, and get ready to stitch!

Love the color screen. Embroidery features are great. I have used combine, rotate, increase/decrease design sizes without any problems. The bobbin winding and case are nice improvements. I use the thread cutter so much I have purchased the foot control accessory which is a nice feature to add on. Happy with the purchase and would recommend the machine, nice mid priced choice for both sewing and embroidery
