The Founding Of New Home

In 1860, William Barker and Andrew J. Clark began producing the "New England Single Thread Hand Sewing Machine" in Orange, Massachusetts. Over the next 20 years, the New England machine and the "Home Shuttle" were their two most significant products. In 1882, the company reformed under the name New Home (a combination of the labels New England and Home Shuttle), and it continued to operate under that name for the better part of a century. In 1960, ninety-three years after Barker and Clark first collaborated, New Home and the "New Home" brand were purchased by the Janome Sewing Machine Company of Tokyo, Japan.

Janome Begins

At SAVE Stores, JANOME means "Japanese New Home"

In Japanese, the word Janome (pronounced Ja-NO-me) means "eye of the snake." The company earned the name in the 1920s when founder Yosaku Ose, a pioneer in Japanese sewing manufacturing, began to use a round metal bobbin system instead of the traditional long shuttle. The Japanese thought the new round bobbin looked like a snake's eye, and from the innovative design, a name was born.

Janome has been leading the industry with such innovation ever since. The company now has sewing divisions in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia and New Zealand as well as agents in Africa, Central and South America and throughout the Pacific Rim of Asia. The company's manufacturing prowess has also made it a world-leader in the production of high precision robots.  Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!

Computers meet Sewing

In 1979, Janome technology introduced the world's first programmable, computer sewing machine - the MEMORY 7. In the mid 80's came the worlds first home embroidery machine. Janome has always been an Industry leader in Technology and Today, our Memory Craft computer models consistently stand out in the industry for their ease of use and precise stitch results.

About Janome

A Letter From Toshi Takayasu, President and CEO of Janome America, Inc.
Janome products have been at the cutting edge of sewing technology since the earliest days of our founding. We were the first to develop a computerized machine for home use (the Memory 7, in 1979), the first to offer professional style embroidery to the home market (the Memory Craft 8000, in 1990) and the first to offer a long-arm quilting machine for home use (the Memory Craft 6500P, in 2003). The long-arm quilting machine has also evolved to the third generation with the introduction of the Horizon Memory Craft 7700QCP, which features 11 inches of arm space, AcuFeed dual feed, and a high resolution LCD touch screen with jog dial control.
Today, our flagship model, the Horizon Memory Craft 12000, is redefining the way sewists enjoy their hobby. This state of the art machine is equipped with Real-Time PC Connection with Horizon Link™ software. This connects the machine to a PC or laptop, allowing users to create and edit embroidery designs and stitch combinations on a PC or laptop with a mouse, anywhere, anytime. This, in addition to a true 9mm stitch width, Variable Zigzag, the Linear Motion Embroidery System, and many more features make this the most powerful, yet effortless sewing, quilting and embroidery machine available.
Our mission is to produce machines which inspire creativity and innovation, yet are simple to use. We know the most important thing about our products is not the machines themselves, but what you create with them. The better your tools, the more inventive, artistic and pleasurable your sewing experience. That’s why we design our machines for performance, but also for comfort, quality, and intuitive ease of operation.
At Janome America, we want our products to inspire, not intimidate—because the most important function our machines perform is to set free your creativity.
Thank you for being a Janome sewist.
Mr. Toshiya Takayasu
President and CEO, Janome America, Inc.
