With any new tool, there is a lot to learn. When you have a new sewing machine, there are millions of things to learn! Okay, maybe not millions, but there are at least hundreds of stitches, buttons and settings that you need to investigate.
It's essential to go through your sewing machine manual to learn what the capabilities are of a new machine. I've been working with the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 9400 QCP, courtesy of Janome Canada and I've found that the sewing machine manual is an essential reference document in this process: and it is a process! You can't learn everything about a new sewing machine in one sitting and it's probably a good idea to block out some chunks of time to dedicate to becoming familiar with a new sewing machine.
I've found it is easiest to start with the obvious. There are several buttons on the front of the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 9400QCP and in this video I'll tell you about their functions.
You can watch the video below or on my YouTube channel.
You can see how important these particular buttons are on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 9400 QCP and I think that they are well placed as these are features that you would frequently use.
As I mentioned earlier in this blogpost, there are many different options and features on this Janome sewing machine and I'll be taking a look at them in upcoming videos and blogposts. If there are any specific questions you have about this amazing machine, please post them in the Comments below.
