I am seeing it labeled as a long-arm machine...You do Machine quilting on it?

I have the Pfaff Tiptronic 2030 and have been very happy with it. In 10 years, I have only had to have a little piece on the bobbin fixed. He said it was kind a fluke deal. I don't know anything about the Juki. Sounds like a great deal for either one. If I lived closer, I would take the one you didn't pick!

I have the Pfaff Triptonic 2030 also, and I love it. I have never had a Juki.

I have had both a Juki TL98Q and a Pfaff 2030. I sold the Juki and I still have the Pfaff. I bought a Janome 6600 to go along with the Pfaff.

I have a Bernina as my main machine, but have the Juki TL98-Q on a frame and absolutely love it! It could be used for FMQ or SITD or other type of quilting off the frame also. It only does the straight stitch, but has a larger throat than my Bernina. Almost took it off the frame to do the straight quilting on my BIL's quilt. (I don't have the rulers and such to do straight quilting on the Juki yet.)

Why did you sell it?
