I have the 14000 and the embroidery Couching is already installed on the machine. There are 10 patterns which are used with 1 of 2 Couching feet ( 1 is for fine Couching thread and the other is for thicker Couching thread). Also included are a yarn guide bar and a yarn guide attachment that fits onto the needle clamp screw.
There is also a foot for free motion Couching.

Re the couching feetF
rom my understanding there are now going to be 3 methods of couching.
1. In sewing mode with the cording or beading feet.
2. Free motion couching with a foot that has 2 attachments to take different widths of cords
3. A new embridery couching foot to be used with the embroidery function
The last was mentioned on Janome Life with the info about the machine update, and the post has since been taken down - I assume until the update is freely available.
