Hi folks, in the Janome Memory Craft 200E review, we’d like to share with you how we find the product based on functionality and overall performance. We also added a basic set up video and information on what you’ll get out of the box.


Please keep in mind that the Janome Memory Craft 200E is not a sewing machine but an embroidery specialty machine. Embroidery can really be a tiresome work, but with this machine it gets easy.


Janome Memory Craft 200E review: Set Up

It is fully automatic, after the initial set up, you will just have to watch it sew on its own. It is operated with a start/ stop push button, no foot press. The speed isn’t adjustable manually but you will notice it going faster or slower on its own depending on the design it’s making. A built-in needle threader is added for easy threading.

The Memory Craft 200E features a pre-loaded 73 embroidery design but it doesn’t end there. You can add/ use your own customized design to embroider to its internal memory by saving a .jef format of the pattern to a USB that goes into the machine’s USB port. It has a backlit LCD touchscreen that allows you basic on-screen editing like enlarging/ reducing and/or rotating a design. For more complex edits, you can get a Janome Digitizer Software.

The only downside of this machine is it’s quite noisy, especially when going at a high speed. Using it takes a little getting used to. You’d have to definitely make use of the instructional video and the user manual that comes with it.
