Quilt E Im on it. I’m actually in the process of finishing up a top, so it’ll be basted and ready to go when the machine comes back. I’m receiving a bunch of fabric for a Quilting board boomerang swap blocks so it works out perfect. I like to have two projects going at once. A piecing/applique project and a FMQ project. Keeps me motivated.

Rob . I bought this machine used because it has such a solid reputation. Mine has been a bit of a disappointment. Hopefully this fixes the problem. I tend to go with a tried and true older model rather than anything new fangled.

mkc i think I will hold off on the stitch regulator but it’s very good to know it’s available. I want to make sure my machine works for a year before I commit.

I have a 9-1/2" throat Juki TL98QE and I love it.

I use the same machine for machine quilting. I bought it on the trade in table at the local dealer for $199. It has a few quirks but sews great. I don't mind being a little rough with it. LOL I plan on using it until it dies and then I'll think about another. Probably what is traded in. I don't like spending a lot on machines. I'd rather use them to death and get another one. I bought my Brother embroidery machine with big hoop space for $299 off the trade in table. If after a couple of years they mess up, I don't fret over it. I bought my first Bernina on the trade in table, a 1260 for $450 with all accessories. It is such a good machine that I never felt iffy about buying from the trade in table. All have been serviced before being sold.
