I am so pleased and amazed by my new sewing machine ... a Juki TL-2000Qi. The speed is incredible. The wavy line quilting on this Pink Star quilt (shown below) took a lot less time than it ordinarily would have on another domestic home machine. I marked the lines and used a walking foot to stitch the quilting. The 2000 (and 2010) only does straight stiches but it does them very very well. Speed is the name of the game (same as for computers and smartphones). I'm getting ready to finish the binding on this quilt and then it will be listed on my Etsy shop at SimplyHandmadeinNC. Thanks!
I highly recommend the Juki TL-2000Qi or TL-2010Qi. The extension table is huge, it has a thread cutter, a needle up/down button, almost 9" of throat space, and you can regulate the pressure of the presser foot. Did I mention it's very fast?
Finished!!! This vibrant art quilt or wall hanging in dark blues, chartreuse green and dusky purples has been added to the Etsy shop at SimplyHandmadeinNC. The finished size is 22x22.
