What customers say about "Key Specs"
Janome 1600P-QC Straight-Stitch Machine
  • I bought Janome with all kinds of fancy stitches (which I didn't ever use). This is sturdy and a workhorse. I use it for making quilts and have never had any trouble at all.
  • Such a neat machine for strictly quilting. Main reason I purchased is that I will get the Graces Frame and accompanying regulator for larger quilting. This to me is a lot more economical for a home quilter than a larger industrial type machine quilter.
  • This machine will do from sewing jeans, leather, etc, to garment sewing, to QUILTING, I do highly recommend this machine unless you want to get an industrial one.
  • It feeds beautifully and forms a nice stitch with all weights of fabric, chiffon to denim and faux leather. The extra room in the bed makes it ideal for machine quilting.
  • We just got this machine where I work. I LOVE it!! We sew some very thick items. Our previous machine just couldn't hack it. We kept taking it in for service. This one is very different. It sews through thick layers of canvas seams & strapping like butter.
JUKI TL-2010Q Portable Sewing Machine
  • It sews like butter, so smooth, and the stitches are the most even I've seen. It's very solid and comes with an enormous extension table (almost twice as big as what came on my Singer).
  • The best straight stitch a machine can make
  • I wish I knew about straight stitch only machines before I wasted money on those others. This is so much easier to to use for quiltiing than any machine that is not straight stitch only.
  • What a dream machine. I needed a straight stitch for piecing and the ability to quilt including free motion quilting.
  • I have a Bernina with all the bells and whistles but doesn't FMQ very well. I wasn't improving. I wanted a good machine just for FMQ, nothing else. This is the machine! It's straight stitch only, makes a wonderful stitch. It's mechanical, no computers, no fancy stitches.

What customers say about "Features"
Janome 1600P-QC Straight-Stitch Machine
  • The needle threader works but it a tad more awkward than others I've had but it has a thread cutter, press a button and both threads cut. It's worth the trade off to spend an extra second or two threading the needle
  • Perfect industrial home machine. The feet included work great and I plan real soon to start quilting the baby quilts. Well worth the time to do all the research prior to purchasing. This machine won't disappoint any sewer.
  • It has a knee lift and you can change the needle-up/ needle-down feature. It has an automatic thread cutter.
  • The presser feet are not snap-on but are easy enough to change.
  • One special feature i had not considered is the automatic thread cutter ..........fantastic!
  • The only thing it doesn't have is a free-arm but I have been able to work around that very well.
JUKI TL-2010Q Portable Sewing Machine
  • I've had an opportunity to use all its features, and the free-motion quilting allows me to do the best work I've ever done, with so much control, and with the additional help of the very large throat to allow me to stuff a bulky quilt in there.
  • This my first machine with a knee bar and that's been a game changer. Usually I sew standing up on a higher desk but I started sitting again so I could use this feature more easily.
  • This machine is fast, and the features it has (knee lift and automatic cutter) are great for what I'm doing.
  • Automatic needle threader which took a little practice to master. I had to look at the threader extremely closely to see where the thread had to be placed to get it to work. Good feature and time saver if you have trouble threading the needle manually.
  • That needle thread really is finicky. I'm not using it but to be honest I've never had one before so I am not really missing anything. It takes too much time for me to fuss with it. The other features make the machine just what I want. I still love it.
