    Thanks for the thread suggestions. I have just rethreaded with some Aurifil and it isn't sewing very pretty but I will do some more practice. My husband had no trouble at all with the bobbin winder. Sometimes I am a total klutz. HA

    Hope this helps!
    Hi,
    I work on mechanical machines. 2-3 drops per 8 hours for an average sewist’s machine is alot/too much. Over-oiling a machine can happen.
    Stick w 1 drop per oil hole. Oil when your machine starts sounding clanky (dry) as opposed to usage hours since everyone’s machine usage varies.
    For me, it's about the process; the final outcome is incidental

    How are you liking your Juki? I'm thinking of buying one, but wonder about the prior model TL-2200QVP. Any thoughts? Thanks, Barbara, Portland

    I’m liking it! I need to figure out the tension on it, but I have faith I will be able to.

    Thanks. I will be sure to examine the tension before I purchase. It seems like a great machine. Barb

    Question about the Juki TL 18 ruler foot

    I just bought the Juki TL18QVP. I would like to purchase the ruler foot. I been looking online and see one that says for the TL series, but is this the right one? Could you tell me the parts number of the one you bought.... Thanks






    QUOTE=TheMerkleFamily;8160773]New machines sure are fun! I hope you'll love your Juki TL18qvp as much as I do my TL2200qvp It's really a fantastic machine that sews a fabulous straight stitch through layers and layers of just about anything! And FMQ is terrific on the Juki because of the great visibility under the harp.

    It was my 1st machine, and my favorite still, that I found super easy to operate (except that pesky auto needle threader can be finicky depending on what needles you're using!) I don't typically run it at full speed because it's f.a.s.t.! And mine likes to be oiled regularly.

    Not sure what feet came with yours - mine came with tons. The few add'l I've bought are the Echo and Ruler feet for FMQ. I use the seam gauge (screws down onto the bed of your machine) often when piecing to keep consistent seam allowances - can't recall if that came with the machine or if I purchased afterwards but I use it often.

    I just purchased the Juki TL-18QVP yesterday. Only after 5 minutes sitting down test driving the machine at the dealer, discovering all the great features, I had to buy it. I don't usually buy things on a whim - I usually research for weeks, test drive at least twice, ask owners their opinions and then finally pull out the checkbook. Not this time. It was a quick decision. Early today I took it out of the box and set it up, read the manual, watched YouTube videos and became very attached to this machine. Juki once again did a fantastic job listening to the voice of quilters and sewists.

    From the Juki website..
    " As a reflection of JUKI’s Japanese heritage, the TL-18QVP was named Haruka meaning “beyond.” Go beyond expectation with Haruka!"

    Does Juki name all of their machines? I find that so interesting, since many of us name our own machines!

    Congrats, Pamela! You will love that machine. You can quilt your quilts on it! And it sews fast which is great for long straight seams like borders and seaming backings. Juki's are usually great right out of the box. There is no dealer near us, but I bought mine from Les Reichert in AZ and have only needed to talk to their tech maybe once over the phone.

    To oil the bobbin area, put one drop of oil on the hook.

    There are videos online that show you how to set your bobbin tension so you can make good stitches. If you don't keep the bobbin area clean, the machine tension may be affected. Keep the lint out with a good brush or big pipe cleaners between projects, or after several hours of sewing.

    Enjoy!

    I don't have to tell you to have a load of fun because I know you are already doing just that. Congratulations on you new machine.
