    I have the TL98E, which is that machine's predecessor. It's a workhorse, awesome for piecing as it has a thread cutter which I love. I mostly use mine on a frame but sometimes take it off the frame and use it for piecing. It's great for freemotion quilting too. One thing to remember is that it's a straight stitch machine only so if you can't use it for applique or anything fancy.

    I LOVE mine. If you ever come to Tulsa, you can play with her. SHe is my main machine, both for piecing and on the frame. I want a long arm, but Juki is staying with me forever.

    the 98 line is an awesome machine but i would tell them to come down on that price since all of the 98 models have been discontinued.

    you can buy the 2010 models, what the 98s were replaced with, for that price.

    i got the 98Q, the model up from the one you're looking at, from sew vac direct for $450 when the models got discontinued along with free shipping and i didn't pay sales tax because i don't live in TX.

    I have it on the Original Superquilter frame. When I bought it I thought it would be all I'd ever need for quilting larger quilts but I find it limiting. Once the quilt gets rolled up there's not a lot of space for quilting.
