We continue our Machine of the Week series with the Janome Horizon 7700QCP. The Horizon as it is affectionately known, is the latest machine from Janome with the renowned AcuFeed system, which allows you feed your top layer of fabric in perfect sync with the bottom layer of fabric, this works well with thick sandwich quilts to the finest heirloom fabrics.
Combine the AcuFeed system with the Janome Superior Plus Feed System and you will be able to say goodbye to puckering, shifting and slipping forever. The Superior Plus Feed System is a specially designed 7-piece feed dog that stay parrallel as they move up and down, ensuring constant contact with your fabric. This makes the Horizon one of the best feeding machines around.
The Horizon also has an Automatic Plate Converter, as shown in the picture on the right, this allows you to create a single round needle hole, which makes straight stitching more precise than ever, this can also be used with the straight stitch foot to give you a better stitch on silky or sheer fabrics.
The Horizon needle plate also has Innovative markings to help you with everything from angles, cornering and seaming. When combined with the Automatic Plate converter, Superior Feed System Plus and AcuFeed you have a complete Quilt Piecing System .
The Horizon still has a lot more to offer though. There are 250 stitches and 3 monogram alphabets. Each of these stitches is arranged into 11 groups for easy reference and selection, via the Tactile Jog Dial. All you have to do is spin the dial forwards or backwards to select your stitches, you can even navigate through the 11 easy reference groups of stitches to get to the stitch you want quickly.
You will also find the Horizon has all of your favorite Janome features, such as an Automatic Thread Cutter, Lockstitch key for perfect finishing of stitches and a memorised Needle Up/Down button.
