I just saw the HZL machines at a trade show. They are wonderful machines.

Also i only quilt as well. I usually make wholecloth. And do not under estimate the size. I quilted approximately 100 inch quilt on it. The F600.

That is when my neighbors complained as I was FMQ at 3 am.

I think if I had not recently gotten TOL Pfaff. I would have gotten a new Juki as they are massively quieter.

They are wonderful machines. The new QVP lines are nice. But the nicest i saw was the Smarter Solution line.

Thanks for your reply. I am looking at the Juki's. The new HLZ machine looks nice but I only do quilting now. Used to make clothing and have
had Bernina's and Pfaff's. Gave my Bernina to my Grandaughter and she loves it. I always seemed to have it in the shop.
Juki's look durable and may suit my needs better now. Looking at them now, thanks again.

Thanks for the reply, I have seen the F600 but couldn't decide if there was enough room from needle to edge. I only make quilts now and
want a machine with quality stitches. Love the sturdiness of Juki machines. Look like they will last a long time. Used to have a bernina and it was always being
serviced. My Pfaff board went out and it was so old they told me to get a new one.
Any info on the new HLZ machine?
Thanks again

I had a F600. Loved the machine. Got rid of it as my neighbors complained as they could hear it through the walls. I sew late at night

Made me realize it sounded like a small jackhammer. But the quality of the machine and Stitches was right there with my Bernina.

I was just at a trade show and saw the new Juki smarter solution line. They were nice and somewhat quiet but very pricey.

You can not go wrong with a Juki. I sold mine simply because of noise

My two go to machines:

Janome MC6500 - had it for since it first came out, nice harp size, works great, nice for FMQ, enough fancy stitches, etc. etc. very happy with this machine

Juki 98Q - this thing was a work horse, power, power, power, very nice stitches, straight stitch only, great for large quilts, FMQ, The only downside I had with the machine was it wanted to go way too fast, but still used it for years. It's not as elegant as a Bernina but more blue collar. Made a lot of queen size quilts with flannel backing.

Between these two machines I have made a lot of quilts, from preemie size to queen size. The whole extended family is covered by my quilts.

On Friday afternoon I bought a Juki TL-2200QVP Mini at the local Quality Vaccuum and Sewing. Feels the same as the Juki 98Q but with a couple little changes. Speed control, different feet, etc. I am definitely happy to be behind a Juki again. Don't have enough time on it to give a full review. I looked at other machines but decided to go with Juki. Go test drive them if possible.

I have other machines: Bernina (for buttonhole applique), Singer featherweight, etc. but the Janome and Juki get the job done. It just depends what you are looking for in a machine. I just make quilts.

I'm new to forum,and have been reading your sewing machine reviews. I am interested in Juki for quilting . I have a Janome 7700 for general sewing. Anyone have experience with these machines? Appreciate your comments.
