    Juki TL2010Q

    Hi everyone, I am interested in buying this machine for quilting only. I have a Bernina that has all the other features I like.
    Any feedback on this? I've done much research and it sounds like a good fit.
    Thanks!

    Welcome from outside St. Louis Mo.

    I have the Juki TL98QE and love it. The throat space is 9". It is a hard worker, just needs cleaning and clear sewing machine oil.

    Hi SusieQOH I have just done what you are thinking about. I own a Bernina 710 and have just purchased/unboxed a JukiTL2010Q to use specifically for the quilting. I like the 710 for piecing but haven't been super thrilled with it for quilting, even with the BSR so decided to buy the Juki on its report of being a real workhorse and excellent for quilting and fmq. I've had some trouble with the Juki walking foot which has stalled my first attempt at quilting but after going onto the facebook group for this machine yesterday, I have found other people with the same problem...it seems a different walking foot is suggested. In general though, people seem very pleased with the machine despite this hiccup. Whilst waiting to resolve the walking foot issue I am going to spend the next week doing some piecing with it as I have yet to do any real sewing on it. (Only unboxed it a few days ago) I'll keep you posted how it all pans out.

    I just bought the tl 2200 qvvp mini, which is essentially the same machine. I love it so far. Maybe they have resolved the walking foot issue with the mini because mine works fine. The only problem it had was the set screw that holds my needle in place came loose after using the walking foot, causing my needle to fall out which bent it (the needle). Possibly the screw wasn't screwed in tightly from the factory.

    I don't think you will be sorry.

    Thanks, Nan. I had to change my user id because I couldn't log in no matter how many times I tried. I finally gave up. The instructions for re-setting haven't been working.

    I had mine only briefly, but absolutely loved it! Heavy duty, even stitching, no tension issues.

    I did exactly what ruby2shoes did. About a year ago I moved and sold the juki thinking that I would only use the Bernina. After setting up my new sewing space, I missed the Juki 2010Q so much I bought another one. Can't live without it!

    I have one and love it. I have quilted many quilts on it, using the walking foot that came with it, with no problems. I love the speed control for fmq, and for zooming down long straight seams, and I love the thread cutter feature where you can just rock back on the foot control and cut the threads. So handy! This machine has allowed me to piece and sew FAST. It doesn't like a linty bobbin area, tho. If you don't keep it clean down there, it becomes impossible to keep the tension right and make nice stitches. I have a good little brush that cleans out the lint, and I use fat pipe cleaners to poke down into the feed dog area to remove lint there. Every few bobbins you need to unscrew the faceplace and remove the foot, and clean well between the feed dogs. It makes a huge difference in stitch quality.

    I have one and love it for piecing. I've never tried quilting on it as I have a HandiQuilter Fusion. The number one thing I consider it great for is machine binding. I can line up with the inner edge of the left toe and get a super nice, narrow topstitch for sewing the binding on to the front.

    I especially love the knee bar for the presser foot, but I don't think that would come into play with FMQ.

    I love mine. It is a workhorse that never fails.

    So it sounds like this is a viable choice for machine quilting. Would it be a good machine to learn on? I won't ever have room for a long arm but would like a good, sensible option for quilting.

    I think so. I'm really enjoying it and I'm a beginner FMQ- I've always quilted by hand. This is one great machine! I'm really glad I bought it.

    I've used the FMQ foot but not the walking foot yet. Yes, I also love my Bernina but this Juki is nicer for quilting. I'm having fun with it!!! Keep me posted.

    I'm going to a large Quilt Show next week so I'll have to see if there's a demo one to try out. Thanks.

    I have quilted at least 20 quilts on my TL2010q with the walking foot that came with it and have never had any problems. Love my Juki!!
    I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing.

    Glad to know this about the binding. I usually machine bind the front and hand bind the back because I never liked the way it came out. YAY!

    Well I have now finished a quilt with the Juki, (well....all except for a change of mind regarding the binding and the second border.....it's going to be a day-long date with the seam ripper tomorrow!!!) and I must say I am super impressed with the machine. In my opinion, to me, doing both walking foot quilting and fmq, the machine felt much more positive than the Bernina. I felt more confident and was really pleased with my first attempt at fmq without a BSR. Sure, my stitch lengths were, ahem, somewhat variable in places, but overrall I was tickled pink with my first "solo" effort. A big thumbs up for the Juki TL2010Q, I can see that this machine will be my "go to" for quilting. And it's nice for piecing too....I found the 1/4" mark on the needle plate to be true and by using an old magnetic seam guide I found it easy to keep my fabric feeding through at the mark. I'm glad I purchased this machine.....the only thing that would make it more perfect would be if it had a little voice that yelled at me when I was sewing wrong colours together....you know, a little voice that said "Don't do that dummy, it's going to look awful if you do and you will regret it!!!!" And yes I do. Oh well, I'm off to find the stitch ripper.
