Juki TL-2000Qi from KathyQuilts.com


The Juki TL-2010Q is the best straight stitch sewing machines you can buy for under $1,000.

We have been selling Juki sewing machines for about 10 years. We have had really good luck with the Juki TL-98E and then liked the TL-98Q even better. It was a very reliable machine that we only had to repair a handful of them over the five years that we sold it. Juki is now offering the 2000Qi and 2010Q. Juki has made some really nice improvements with the 2000Qi and 2010Q models. The 2010 has a sub-tensioner for the thread and includes two freehand quilting feet. The 2000Qi only comes with one hopping foot. There is only about $50 difference between the two Juki models.

Previous models of the Juki TL-Series had two monsterously huge foot pedals. The new ones have a regular size foot pedal that lets you actuate the thread cutter by pressing down with the heel of your foot. These machines are great for piecing quilts, finishing the binding, or just about any general purpose sewing task. Whether you are quilting under the arm of your Juki or using it on a machine quilting frame you will find it helps you get a really nice stitch.

Juki is a Japanese company that is a world leader in making industrial sewing machines for over 70 years.They now have a line of machines for the consumer that has the speed and durability of a commercial sewing machine but is more user friendly. These machines are the best machines for quilting on the Grace frames that we have found. We now carry the Juki TL-2200QVP which is an 18 inch longarm machine quilter. It would really be considered a mid-arm machine head but the lines really blur on what a longarm is so we won't worry about it. For those purists that think it isn't a longarm, you are correct, but none the less, it is a great machine quilting head. Teamed up with the Virtuoso frame from the Grace Company it is the best machine quilting combo you can find anywhere.

The TL-2000Qi or TL-2010 are machines that are made for the home sewer. Here are some reasons why it works best on the Grace Frames:

  • The thread cutter can be a really handy way to cut the thread when you are sewing or quilting.
  • The Juki works better with the Grace Speed Control or Grace SureStitch - stitch length regulator than the other brands of machine
  • The Juki has the thumb screw that holds the needle on the left side. Some of the other machines have it on the right side. If you bump the take up rail that holds your quilt on it, the needle can loosen and fall out.
  • The Juki runs very smoothly. 1500 Stitches per minute is pretty fast. They are a few other machines out there that run a little faster, but for the money the Juki is the best value.
  • Very high reliability. We haven't had to repair more than a handful of the Juki TL-98Q's that we have sold over the past three or four years. The new Juki's will have the same quaility as the Juki's we have sold in the past. Since you have to oil your Juki, the bearings last longer than many of the other machines. If you keep your Juki clean it will last for several years without needing service.
  • The needle threader is very nice
  • The feed dog drop lever works very well. Janome 1600 doesn't even come with a feed dog drop feature. You have to use a plate that covers the feed dogs. The plate many times will keep coming off.
  • Better quilting feet than other manufacturers machine with similar throat length
  • Great machine for piecing and binding your quilts. Whether on or off a machine frame they ROCK!!!
