I purchased the Juki HZL-27Z as a gold box deal for $159.99 and am totally pleased with my purchase. I had been thinking about getting a compact machine that would be a nice backup machine as well as function as a portable while RVing. I currently use a Brother Quattro and Brother SE270D and primarily do crafts, machine embroidery, and quilting with them. When this deal came up, I couldn't pass it up!

Although I have never tried using other portable machines like a Singer featherweight or a Janome Jem, I thought I would give the Juki a try. Juki has a good reputation for its commercial and higher end machines. I also wanted something that was not computerized as my backup since I would be moving it quite a bit.

Lightweight - weighs 12 pounds reportedly; I weighed it at 12.8

Easy to use out of the box - it has similar bobbin winding, top loading bobbin, and threading as my other Brother machines; you do have to thread through the top hole of the bobbin prior to winding, however. I think that anyone who has any sewing experience would find it very easy to use. For beginners, it would also be easy to understand with its manual or perhaps even without, since it has nice diagrams right on the machine. The manual is easy to understand.

Manual automatic needle threader is easy to use

Adjustable length and width of stitches

Nice even straight stitching with ability to adjust tension

I think the thing that I am most impressed with is the feed dogs. It sewed through 3 layers of denim, no problem. With 5 layers, it needed help feeding it through. It also has a jig-type button on the presser foot for thicker fabrics. It seemed to work well.

The vertical spool pin is short.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A few years ago my daughter asked me to make her a dress. I bought the cheapest sewing machine I could find and it took me several days just to figure out how to make it work, and even longer to get the dress put together. In the end, my promise was fulfilled and I gave the sewing machine away.

Well, my daughter is bigger now and we were looking at things to do together. And she remember that dress I made her. "Mommy, it would be great if we could make clothes together!" Umm...yeah...right. Luckily, I got the JUKI HZL-27Z Sewing Machine this time around, or our "together time" could have been a disaster!

First off: This machine scared me right out of the box. It has all these pictures of stitches, and drawings on it that I thought I was supposed to understand right away. Luckily, I calmed down and realized that mostly it was step-by-step instructions on how to set the machine up and get it ready to sew.

Secondly: I really couldn't remember much from the previous project. I mean, I kind of fell off (and stayed off) the horse after my last machine. But my daughter is one of those "rules followers" and pulled out the instruction booklet. Once again, JUKI provided me with directions and instructions that got us going in no time flat!

Lastly: I want to say that this machine has so many options. For our first project, it seems (seams? haha) like too many, but I am sure further down the road we'll use more and more of what the machine can do.

In conclussion: This seems like a great basic sewing machine. I read a review that said it was "loud", but I think my sobbing was much louder with my last machine! Thank you JUKI for making a sewing machine that even a modern mom and daughter could figure out how to use, and have fun doing it!

I love, love, love, this machine. I see that the price has risen from the $114 that I paid weeks ago, but it is still a bargain. Its performance rivals machines at 4 or 5 times the price.

I've been sewing for more years than I care to remember on everything from a treadle, to mechanical, and top-of-the line electronic and computerized machines. Yet, lately, I've been wanting a relatively inexpensive, reliable, lightweight, portable, 3/4 mechanical machine to take with me places. I've been looking at this Juki model as well as others for months. I couldn't make up my mind until a huge price drop convinced me to give it a try.

I am not disappointed. This is a solid machine. The first thing that I noticed was the power of the motor. It is fast, goes through multiple layers of fabric and yet is soooo quiet. The footprint is small yet it feels solid and stays put even at the fastest speeds, which is amazing considering it weighs only 13 pounds.

It has box feed on seven feed dogs which makes for very comfortable sewing. There are more than enough speciality and decorative stitches and while their quality is acceptable, they are not outstanding. This machine is for utility not beauty. Straight stitches are fine. The built-in needle threader is one of the simplest I've ever used.

There is a 4-step buttonhole which leaves a lot to be desired. There's a way to fiddle with it to get an excellent buttonhole but beginners would not be able to suss this as easily as I was. Neither the manual or the accompanying video would show you either.

I have this thing about "perfect" stitches. It bothers me when they don't form perfectly in the center of the fabric.
