Quarter Inch Foot without Guide

Quilters know that a precise quarter-inch seam is the key to precision-pieced patterns. Personal preference often dictates the just-right pairing of sewist and accessory foot to achieve those results. The new flangeless Quarter Inch foot removes the guide from Janome's traditional O foot for improved visibility and exact seam placement.

Ruler Quilting

Expand your quilting options and take advantage of the wide array of precision templates on the market for ruler-guided quilting. Engage the Ruler Work mode in Sewing Applications and use the new Ruler Work foot (QR) to safely follow along the guiding edge of precision cut templates. Achieve beautiful and consistent quilting design results previously only available to longarm quilters.

Variable Zig Zag open toe foot

The new open toe Variable Zigzag (VZZ) foot (QZ) makes it easy to follow your stitch progress when using this unique Janome function. See precisely where you wish to widen or narrow your zig zag stitch with the hands-free adjustment of the knee lifter


Open-Toe Darning Foot (PD-H)

For quilters who prefer to free motion with a darning foot, an opening in the front is a must! This open-toe darning foot makes the needle very easy to see.

The High Light™

The adjustable High Light and nine Ultra Bright LED lamps are everything you need for a shadow-free workspace. The adjustable High Light pulls out to give direct light in the needle area and the nine LEDs illuminate the bed area. 

AcuFeed Flex™

The AcuFeed Flex Layered Fabric Feeding System is the best on the market. AcuFeed Flex perfectly guides your fabric from the top and bottom. Perfect for quilts, plaids and any sewing requiring precise control.

Numerous Needle Plates

Sewists are always striving for perfection in their sewing, even as they tackle various fabric types and sewing styles. 

NEW Needle Plate & Foot

Accurate stitches and perfect starts on any type of fabric has gotten easier. This narrow gauge industrial foot and straight stitch plate are great for curves and precise topstitching

Spacious Sewing Bed

The ample work area and ergonomic design allows for more quilt room. The MC9400 provides 11” to the right of the needle and 15 ½” of total work area. The needle area is sleek and trim so you can easily see as you work.

Superior Needle Threader

Threading could not be easier. Set your thread, push the lever, release and sew. The Superior Needle Threader’s advanced design feeds the thread through the eye of the needle with precise accuracy every time.

9mm Zig Zag

Stitch up to 9mm wide stitches - the extra width makes all of your decorative stitches bolder, brighter, and more distinct. 

Ergonomic Design

The sewing head and needle area are sleek and trim so you can easily see as you work. 

Advanced Touchscreen

The advanced LCD touchscreen shows all of the information you need to sew with ease. Select new stitches and memorize your favorites for quick access. 

Stitch Composer: Create Your Own Designs

Create your own stitch patterns from scratch! The program is easy to use, and transferring stitches to your machine is easy using the built-in USB port.

Stitches & Extras

Choose from 350 different stitches and 11 buttonholes. There is also an amazing array of 19 standard feet and accessories including Cloth Guide, Extra-Wide table, dust cover, and included Stitch Composer software. 

Auto Presser Foot Lift

The presser foot lift on the MC9400 automatically lifts the presser foot after a thread cut. This feature can be set to raise at the end of any seam, with the needle in the down position for easy pivoting. 

Precision Markings

The Patented Needle Plate Markings on the MC9400 provide comprehensive measurements right under the needle so that the pivots points and angle lines are right where you need them to be. 

One Step™ Needle Plate Conversion

The One Step Plate Converter allows for no screws or tools. Simply push the lever to release the plate and snap a new one in place. The MC9400 comes with three standard needle plates: The Standard Zig Zag, Straight Stitch and the Professional ¼” Needle Plate. 

Memorized Piecing

The Memorized Quilt Seaming feature on the MC9400 memorizes the length of your seams. When sewing, the machine will stop exactly where it should for each quilt seam.

Auto Pivot

When working on applique, the Auto-Pivot function allows for fast and accurate stitching, especially along corners and curves.
