Janome MC 9900 in Action

On Saturday I popped into Al's Vacuum & Sewing Centre in Sarnia, Ontario. I was hoping I'd get a chance to see the new machine, Angela and Mike were in the shop, both were extremely helpful and more than willing to show me what it could do. I excitedly explained that I had actually created a few of the built in designs and asked if it would be possible to see one of them stitched out. Before I knew it, Angela had fabric in a hoop and ready to go, with just a few touches on the screen, I was watching my design emerge in thread.

here you see the pincushion design in progress

stitched out, roughly 6" across
and here, the MC9900 is stitching the little vintage toy sewing machine design, you can see it displayed on the machine's screen.

Al's will host an event in early May with Janome Educator, Linda Pidzamecky, I plan to attend to learn more about this machine. So far it looks fabulous, VERY user friendly and in addition to the embroidery function, I already see many of the familiar features that I love about my MC6600.

I have decided to build a small scrappy "sewing" themed quilt around one of the embroideries, here is a peek at what I am designing.

Love your embroidery designs. I hope they are digitized for more machines than just Janome. If so, who sells them?
