    Juki Machine for Quilting

    Can anyone give any advice/opinions on the Juki 2000Qi? I was considering buying it, and was just wondering the difference in quilting on it verses a regular sewing machine. I love my kenmore sewing machine but there's just not much room for quilting anything larger than a baby quilt.

    I have a Juki TL 98QE, no extension table. It makes a beautiful stitch, I always use organ needles #14 in it.

    I have a Brother PQ-1500, which is similar to the Juki, I love it!! I just got a Grace frame, but have not had time to try out the combo together...as far as stitching, my Brother does an amazing job...I do have to agree with tatavw01, in that I wish it had a zig zag stitch...but I also have a Brother PC-420, which has way more stitches than I would ever use!!

    Thanks for the "hint" of using a jeans needle for quilting...I had heard where fmq seems to go better with a larger needle, but haven't tried it yet...plan to now.
