PROS: It sews like butter, so smooth, and the stitches are the most even I've seen. It's very solid and comes with an enormous extension table (almost twice as big as what came on my Singer). I've had an opportunity to use all its features, and the free-motion quilting allows me to do the best work I've ever done, with so much control, and with the additional help of the very large throat to allow me to stuff a bulky quilt in there. The threading of the machine is not super simple like it is on my Singer; but once I got the hang of it, no problem. It winds the most even bobbins I've ever seen - they are perfect. And is this machine fast - because of that, the speed control's a real help. Needle up/down is great, so is the ability to cut the thread in 3 different places, the foot pedal, the button on the front of the machine, and the thread cutter in back of the needle. The threading and side-load bobbin are no problem, especially if you have experience with older machines like I do. The Juki doesn't come with a huge amount of attachments, but I really think what comes with it is sufficient; and it's especially nice to get a real quality walking foot.
CONS: The user manual is terrible, very little explanation with awful pictures. But there are enough videos on youtube for it not to matter much. As with most sewing machines, the lighting is dim, but I bought an led light strip which I attached underneath the throat area, and it is lit up beautifully now. That was an extra expense that was well worth it. My only real complaint is the needle threader. It took me a long time to figure out how to use it, and only after watching countless youtube videos over and over. The one on my Singer works like a breeze, so this one was very frustrating. I find that I still have a problem with it, as it sticks in the down position. I think I may have found videos on how to fix that problem, as others have encountered it, but I won't bother myself with that right now - I just thread the needle by hand.
I know this was a long review, but when I was doing my research, I wanted to know specifics about the machines I was interested in. I hope I've helped someone else to make an informed decision. All in all, this is a dream machine. I bought it for a specific purpose, and it serves that purpose like a champ.
1. The best straight stitch a machine can make
2. As few computerized parts as possible. I do NOT need 400 different stitches of which I will use a straight stitch 98% of the time, a zig-zag 1.9% of the time and the other 0.1% will be the once or twice I play with the other stitches. Why the lack of computerized parts? I want the machine to last a lifetime, be able to maintain it myself and when I can't fix it, be able to find someone that can without expensive replacement costs
3. It has to be able to handle a King sized quilt without an Olympic-grade wrestling match
This machine is incredible. I love it, adore it and it does everything I need it to do. I read about a bobbin winding problem that some had where it didn't wind bobbins fully and sure enough that's what my machine did when I got it, however, with a screwdriver and less than five minutes of easy to follow instructions I adjusted the stopping mechanism myself and it winds fantastic smooth bobbins as full as you can get them without over-filling.
In some of the reviews I read people complained about the cost. If you use this machine and within a minute can't see, feel, and hear the difference between it and a $500 machine... please stop quilting now, you don't appreciate the hobby and you probably don't understand why you would spend $15 and three days knitting a hat that you can buy at a discount store for $1.50. The quality of this machine makes me want to hug it daily. It stitches through five layers of fabric and batting like there's nothing there. I can quilt with my quilting pins in place and it doesn't upset the length or smoothness of my stitches. I have even had the presser foot lift over the edge of a safety pin so that it was lopsided and it STILL fed the fabric through smoothly and effortlessly. My old machine sounded worse than me trying to run up a hill whenever it encountered more than two or three layers of fabric this machine just says "Bring it on!"
I should also note that it is portable, it isn't the lightest machine and if you're buying a machine because it says "Lightweight" put it back! This machine is heavy enough that it doesn't vibrate all over the place when you hit the pedal to the metal yet it can still be lifted and moved to the kitchen table, carried to a class, or moved out on the back deck in the summertime just because the weather is nice. It does weigh almost 40 pounds but the handle is well positioned to distribute the weight so it doesn't feel so heavy.
I love the thread cutter. While you can use the presser foot to snip the thread it just makes me smile to push that little button with the scissors on it. I haven't learned to use the knee lever yet but hope to someday if I can find a properly adjusted table/chair combination. This is no fault of the machine, I am just to short for the table I have available to use for quilting on and the combination of reaching for the foot pedal and trying to be up high enough to not injure my back while quilting is difficult. I am also so used to not having one that lifting the presser foot by hand is not considered an inconvenience for me but more of an automatic motion when I hit the end of a seam.
I love this machine. It has a beautiful straight-stitch no matter what the fabric. It feeds like a dream come true. It is quiet, effortless, easy to thread, easy to wind bobbins, easy to load bobbins and does everything I wanted it to do. It is worth EVERY penny.
To make a short story long. BUY THIS MACHINE. If you quilt, you won't regret it.
P.S. I bought my machine brand new on e-bay for about $100 cheaper (including shipping) but it did not come with the extra thread or bobbins.
Happy with my purchase. I am a quilter and as soon as the machine came I plugged it in and started sewing!! I had a couple of tension issues at first due to the fact that I use a finer thread but the machine was adjusted and off I went back to sewing! I'm a happy lady..
