As one of the leading modern machines manufactured for home use, this MB-4S makes for a highly competent sewing unit to apply in small business settings. The device comes with a wide range of embroidery formats intended for all types of creative work, including the templates used by industry professionals.

Supplied along with a set of Janome branded accessories, the four main embroidery hoops are manufactured specifically for the use with the MB-4S machine, creating the working area for multi-level application.

In addition to the four MB-4S hoops, the machine is provided with lettering hoops and large embroidery hoops for more creative flexibility. It is also compatible with six industry-standard Tajima hoops and four Janome hoops, making it suitable for a wide range of sewing projects.

Featuring a 5.7-inch Remote Computer Screen, or RCS, the machine offers the editing interface with over 65,536 colors and lets you customize your pre-sets and other settings.

The editing process is made more flexible by the array of functions the computer is supplied with, including the options to enlarge, reduce, rotate, drag and drop, re-edit, zoom, arc, and combine. A single RCS is compatible with other Janome machines, allowing you to switch remote control between various devices so you don’t have to purchase additional controllers.

As for the machine’s built-in options, it holds 50 embroidery designs, 10 fonts, and 2 & 3 letter monogramming option available for immediate use. Though your work is not limited by the offered built-in options, and the expanded 3 MB of built-in memory allows you to store up to 1,500,000 stitches or 100 designs alternatively, all of which can be selected from the on-board sub-control panel with backlit LCD screen.

All additional designs can be transferred via USB port that supports direct connection to your PC. The machine’s digital functions are supported by Janome Artistic Digitizer Software with its comprehensive feature package that makes sure all your projects produce professional quality results.

In terms of performance, the MB-4S boasts an especially powerful set of features. One of the standout components is the machine’s dedicated bobbin winding motor which you won’t normally see on professional embroidery appliances.

The motor can significantly raise the efficiency of your work as it neatly winds newly added bobbins while the machine is otherwise engaged in stitching.

The bobbin itself has been upgraded and is now 1.4 times larger than a regular bobbin. Its winding can also be done independently with a simple touch of a separate button.

The needle area is illuminated by 4 white LED lights for complete visibility, including 2 dedicated sewing lamps. Built-in automatic thread cutter works for both needle and bobbin threads, while the automatic cutting of jump threads can be engaged even between letters.

Such jump thread trimming is programmable, designed to help you complete your projects faster. Embroidery sizes may vary, though the maximum available size measures at 9.4 inches by 7.9 inches.The positioning of the machine’s hoops is also adjustable to suit the needs of various projects, while the dedicated sensor alerts you whenever a breakage of the upper thread occurs. The machine supports various thread brands, including Janome, Robison-Anton, Madeira, and Mettler.
