Ohhhhhhhh....so glad i finally bought this! I LOVE the speed - its definitely not 'too much to handle' - the foot pedal is very responsive. I make dresses - for sale, and often have to do 10 of the same dress the speed allows me to get this done so quickly! I havent even FMQ with it yet! just remember to thread the needle from the left to the right!
its a solid, sturdy, smooth running machine...i find myself saying 'i didnt know it could be like this!"
I absolutely love this quilting machine. First time I've ever bought a Juki machine but it's a great machine. Easy to operate, very good quility. I would definitely recommend this quilting machine to anyone who likes to quilt.
After having researched many, many machines, I decided on JUKI. I had no idea how fantastic this machine would be. No bells and whistles but does exactly what I bought it to do machine quilt and it handles the quilting with no problem at all. Whisper quiet, smooth operating, simple to use, easy to maintain. I think I'm in love!!!
