Janome Horizon Memory Craft 9400QCP Sewing Machine (youtube, 25:56)
This is the instructional DVD that comes on a CD with the machine.
I got mine from Cathey's Sewing & Vacuum in Tucson, Arizona,
on April 2, 2018.
I did about 1.5 weeks of research to decide on the best machine for me;
this one wasn't available on Amazononly through dealers.
I got a fantastic deal! I noticed a spring special at
Cathey's gave me an even better price on the machine,
and also included the Janome 9400 QCP upgrade kit and the free universal table.
- sewing machine: $3499.99 (30% off MSRP)
4-year complete protection plan: $599.99
This is pre-paid complete annual service for four years, plus service/maintenance if anything
Since this is my first computerized sewing machine, I decided to
buy four years of peace-of-mind.
It's really hard to remove the monogramming stitches,
so check-and-double-check before sewing!
