This stunning Janome MC8900 Special Edition is the ultimate for quilting but with fantastic stitch choices, extra space and powerful stitching, it would be suitable for any sewing task from quilting to dressmaking to home furnishings.


Great for large projects

The sheer length of the arm space is impressive at 11" (280mm),  ideal for large quilts, bridal dresses and those bigger home furnishing projects. And it's powerful, reaching speeds of up to 1,000 stitches per minute. Nevertheless even at those speeds stitch quality is a priority. With a built-in AcuFeed system for precise fabric handling and an easy change needle plate to enhance straight stitch performance,  rest assured this machine offers spectacular stitch quality, and they’ve increased the stitch width to 9mm.


Fantastic lighting & brilliant stitch selection

Shadow free lighting is provided by 5 bright white lights whilst quick and easy stitch selection can be made on the large touch screen or with the jog dial. Choose from nearly 1,000 stitches including alphabets and numbers, some great fun play stitches and 11 styles of automatic buttonholes. You can Memorise a combination of these stitches, the 8900QCP will calculate the length of the combined patterns just to make sure they fit into the available space on your fabric. Patterns can be elongated up to 5 times standard length and they can be flipped and saved as your favourite stitch. 


Other special features

Other special features include an automatic needle threader, a speed controller to set your maximum sewing speed and a stop/start button if you choose not to use the foot control. It also has a needle up/down button which programmes the needle to either finish in the up position or in the fabric, great for pivoting on corners ! It has a lock stitch button to ensure every stitch pattern is locked off at the end and even an automatic thread cutter to trim your threads.

For those serious quilters we've added a remote thread-cutter port and there is an optional thread-cutter unit available for this model.
