Top Customer Reviews
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.
So far, I've used it to piece fabrics and go over bulky seams on several bags. It's done a fantastic job (see one user error note below). It winds bobbins smoothly and evenly and the table has a pop up door to help you access the bobbin area more easily. My machine tension has been great (using Mettler metrosene so far). This my first machine with a knee bar and that's been a game changer. Usually I sew standing up on a higher desk but I started sitting again so I could use this feature more easily.
1. I loved buying from Sew Vac Direct via Amazon. Great customer service. Stephen has been helpful before and after purchase. I also bought a 5 year extended warranty directly from Sew Vac Direct after the sale. I'm not sure I will need it but glad to have the assurance.
2. If you use the bundled walking foot, remember to decrease the presser foot pressure all the way (this note is in the manual but I overlooked it) and tighten the needle screw with the screwdriver. I broke 5 needles because I was tightening the needle screw by hand and when I went over bulky bag seams, it loosened itself ever so slightly. This hasn't happened since I used the enclosed screwdriver to tighten it. Also when I first used the walking foot, it sounded different than my Janome (more clanky) Stephen connected me to Elbert of Juki.com service. He sent me a needle screw that he has made specifically for the walking foot. (His customer service makes me glad I chose Juki!) The foot is still louder than my other machine but it seems to be working fine and I sent Elbert a video of it and he said it sounded normal.
3. The lighting is good around the needle but there are shadows to the right of the needle that made it harder for me to see. I bought this LED lighting kit from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KGKB02Q Wow, it's an incredible difference. (There's a Youtube video for installation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crUR5Y3lZSM) I don't work for them, I just found it to be a great accessory.
4. I had read that some people accidentally cut the threads with the foot pedal and someone recommended to turn the pedal sideways. This is what I'm doing and so it's an intentional move of my foot to the right to cut the threads. So far it's been fine.
5. The needle threader is tricky but mine works. There are a couple of videos out there but I found this one to be most helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6D5n8UZLHk I've been using the enclosed Organ size 14 needles. There's an art to using it and I've yet to get it on the first try but it does work.
If I've not answered your question, please leave a comment. I've not used the machine on a quilting frame. I intend to use it for bag making, quilting smaller pieces (for now), draperies, and some clothing so this review will be more useful to similar users.
