Default Juki 2010Q vs. Babylock Jane

I would appreciate any input on these 2 machines. I am torn between the 2. Any significant differences/preferences? The dealer gave me a price for each - and there is only $50 difference, so price isn't a big factor.

I have a Bernina 630 and am looking for a straight stitch only machine with a larger harp to quilt larger quilts.

Thanks.

My Jane is set up on a long arm frame and I hate it.
It is a primitive machine with a complicated threading and a under the machine bobbin.
It is just not good on a long arm table.
My go to machine is a Viking Sapphire with a 10 in harp space but even it is not great for fmq. For piecing it cant be beat.
What I am saving up for is an 18 in machine that will work on my table.

I don't have any knowledge about the Babylock Jane, but have the Juki TL2010 and love it! I don't use it on a frame, I have an Arrow Gidget II table. I use it for piecing and quilting. I also have a Viking Sapphire 830, but I don't use it very often now that I have the Juki. I think the harp is a little wider on the Viking, but the opening is more spacious on the Juki at the top and needle end, so the visibility is better.

The Juki was perfect right from the box. I haven't had to mess with tension at all. It has a needle threader, but I haven't taken the time to learn it yet. I know there's a you tube video, but I have not gone back to it. For now, I just thread the needle the old fashioned way.

I have seen lots of posts praising the Juki TL2010; no posts that even mention the Babylock Jane. I would go for the Juki!

I love my Juki but I don't have it on a frame. I have it in cabinet and have had no trouble quilting King Sized quilts on it. It's fast, powerful and I love the even stitch, longer stitch length and thread cutters. I just wish that I had purchased this machine before I wasted so much money on my Janome 6500 which should have been painted yellow.

Thank you everyone.

I had done some research and had settled on the Juki. I located the closest dealer and when I stopped in, he threw me a curve with the Babylock.

So glad I posted this. You all have confirmed my original decision to go with the Juki. Thanks much. I love this board!

I have a Jane _ I was going to get a Juki but my husband said to me (as I couldn't find any significant difference between the two of the machines) " Love, why would you not get a machine from Ian (my sewing machine dealer) if anything goes wrong he will be right there for you" I have sewn exclusively on Jane for over a month now and am happy to report that she sews like a dream.

I have a Babylock Jane and I love it. Sews like a dream, love the up/down feature, very easy to thread and fill bobbins. Putting the bobbin in was awkward at first until did it the right way, no longer a problem. I have other machines if I want different stitches but use this a lot for doing bindings, stitch in the ditch etc.

If you would be interested in going back through past posts, there are several posts that show members are very happy with their Babylock Jane, and also a few threads asking about the Babylock Jane since Babylock released the Jane machine. I myself love mine, and have mentioned it in posts in the past.
