Default Juki HZL F600

When a multi national prize winning quilter decides to buy a new machine, which one does she decide to buy? Sharon Schamber picked this one http://www.raichert.com/HZL/JukiHZLf600.html Any one have this machine?

I got mine last week and haven't done too much on it but what I've done, I'm loving! It has tons of decorative and quilting stitches which sew out beautifully. I got mine from Raichert -- they are great to work with.

on this page http://www.raichert.com/HZL/hzlfeet.html it shows lots of interesting feet available. it seems odd that the foot that i would call stitch in the ditch foot, they call it an edge sewing presser foot. i have a straight stitch juki and just love the sturdiness of it. i'd love to have one of these zig zags . i got mine from raichert, too.

on the original posted page, down to the bottom left, there is a picture of a foot that looks like a giant buttonholer foot, but it has a plug into the sewing head. anyone know what that is? why would it need a plug? it is different/bigger than the buttonhole foot on the second page i posted in the previous post.

I got mine in February, ordered it on-line, sight unseen and untested and it has been fabulous! I had my choice between Bernina, Janome or Juki and I am very happy I chose the Juki.
Nancy - the machine has an electronic buttonholer as well as a couple of other ways to make buttonholes...I haven't had a need to use mine yet.

The SITD foot was always the edge joining foot until quilters figured out it was great for stitch in the ditch sewing. Thus the new label so quilters would know it was the right foot to use.

I've had this machine for 2 weeks and I'm totally loving it. It is very quiet and I think it's a great buy.
