I really love this machine. I got it about three weeks ago and I was so pleasantly surprised by it's performance. Yes, it only does a straight stitch but it does a perfect, powerful, clean straight stitch unlike any machine I have used--- aside from an industrial Juki, which is just not practical in my apartment. I thought my old Singer was great (and it is, i must say) but this machine has not jammed once, it performs perfectly and I could not be happier with it!! I highly recommend this to anyone who sews a lot or who works in the fashion industry but just doesn't have room for an industrial at home!!!

I bought this machine a few years ago because I couldn't resist the idea of a faster home machine. I still have my Bernina, (25 years old) that sews beautifully, But I have to admit that I LOVE sewing on this machine. It is fast and the stitches are solid. It also has the same features that I love on my Bernina, which is the leg lift, and easy set up. The threading is smooth, and downright flawless. Honestly, the price is fantastic if you consider what you have to pay for an industrial machine, or even a brand new Bernina. I find that I can do 80% of my sewing using a single stitch. I have to switch back to my Bernina for button holes and maybe special darning projects (which I rarely use). I've worked on vinyl, polyester chiffon, denim and lots of cotton. Stitches are so clean, I would trust this machine for decorative top stitching. I didn't really "need" this additional machine, but now that I have it, I would never give it up.

Machine is very straight forward in its use. Simple to operate and very sturdy. Has a very large table add on which makes it great for quilting. Machine operates extremely well with the Grace stitch regulator when used in a frame. It is very fast and has a nice stitch. Has a built in cone thread holder which makes it nice for machine quilting.

I love this machine. I own a Janome, a Viking and 2 Berninas that are computerized machines. I just thought they were the best until I got my Juki TL98Q. I love the automatic thread cutter on the foot control and the knee lift. They make for a very fast piecing session when doing repetitive chain piecing. I don't have to stop and snip everything apart or trim thread ends. I also like that I don't have to hold onto the thread tails to start the next piece as you do with a regular machine. No thread "nests" on the back to deal with. It does take an "L" style bobbin so don't get them mixed up with Class 15 or 66 bobbins but you can buy large boxes of these bobbins pre-wound fairly reasonably as they are used by the larger long-arm quilting machines as well.
I will be taking this machine to any sewing retreats I attend. It is not that heavy. The only negative thing I found was the cover. Flimsy plastic useful only as a dust cover. I am going to make a quilted cover (and a matching bag to hold the accessories) since it has a built in handle. It does not fit into a standard replacement case.
The extension table is well made and is not plastic as so many are. It has a place on the bottom to store the knee lift.
I do recommend some sort of stick-on spacer to prevent the fabric from wandering under the presser foot as it can be hard to control the seam allowance at this speed. I use a Post-It pad. Placed next to the foot itself, it gives a scant 1/4" seam allowance.
The larger throat area is great for machine quilting larger projects as well as manipulating foundation pieced blocks on paper.
If you can only get a single machine for quilt making, this is it. I'm just sorry that I didn't get one when they first came out.
