SewingMachinePlus.com Customer Personal Review
Purchased this machine when it first came on the market. I have been sewing everything on this machine including quilts with absolutely no issues at all. I started teaching my granddaughters how to sew this summer and contemplated bringing out my older machine for the sake of ease and simplicity but decided that the JUKI wouldn't overwhelm them. I was right! My ten year granddaughter even threads the machine and fills the bobbins. She loves this machine. I promised to purchase her first sewing machine and now I have to figure out how to "sell her" on a machine that's not too expensive. I might have to purchase anther one just for her.

Automatic Thread Trimmer
The machine is equipped with an automatic thread trimmer. It simulaneously trims the needle and bobbin threads at the sewing end. A light press of the push-button is all it takes. It uses the thread trimming mechanism.
Even Feed Foot
The even feed foot has a reliable feed. It ensures beautiful seams when sewing difficult-to-feed fabrics such as georgette and velvets. It also works well with heavy weight materials such as leather.
Sew Heavy Weight Materials With Ease
The speed control mechanism is operated by microcomputer for precise results. It allows the machine to sew materials at low speeds. This provides accurate feed and perfect stitching when sewing heavy weight fabric, quilting and multiple layers of materials.
Predetermined Needle Stop Position
When you stop sewing, the machine comes to an accurate stop with the needle down. To move the needle up or down, simply press the needle up / down button.
Two Types of Quilting Foot / Drop Feed
The quilting feet are designed for free motion quilting and free-hand embroidery. The feed dog can be raised and lowered simply by pressing a switch. When quilting, the drop feed allows you to sew curved stitches with ease.
Knee Lifter Lever
The knee lifter lever lifts / lowers the presser foot without using your hands. The presser foot can be raised as high as 12mm.
Foot Pedal Switch for Thread Trimming
Like an industrial sewing machine, the thread trimmer can be activated with the foot pedal switch. It greatly increases sewing efficiency.
Automatic Needle Threader
The push lever automatic needle threader threads the needle with ease and without eyestrain. This means you can start sewing quicker!
Thread Tension Scale
The TL-98Q is provided with the thread tension scale. You can adjust the tension to match the needs of the thread and material used
Easy Bobbin Replacement
A new bobbin case latch and an enlarged bobbin case area make it easier to remove and replace the bobbin.
