JUKI TL-2000Qi Review

As a company, JUKI doesn’t loiter around: they know their target audience and they know them well.

While you won’t find any budget models at cheap prices, you’ll stumble upon high-gear technology and efficacy you have never seen before.

The JUKI is specifically tailored with the intermediate and professional sewer in mind, anyone trying to sell you a different version of the story is lying through their teeth.

You won’t find a newbie fiddling around with the Juki TL-2000Qi as he would most likely get lost in the heaps of sophisticated add-ons that accompany a common JUKI machine.

With that being said, let’s see what it is that separates the common Joe of sewing machines to the professional’s choice!

Juki TL-2000Qi Key Features

  • 1,500 Stitches Per Minute

We had to feature this one on the top of our charts, as compared to other sewing machines, the JUKI operate at a 100% faster rate on average.

Imagine operating a sewing shop and being able to put out twice as many products then before.

That puts the steep price to a whole different perspective: one that is strongly considered!

  • The Sturdy Build

You’ll never find a JUKI machine that uses common materials in the build-up process. We are here talking about aluminum alloy free-arms and stainless steel, not some cheap China plastic!

This means that you’ll be able to perform heavy-duty work with this machine, making it perfect for shops that are all about peddling apparel!

  • Free Motion Quilting

The best thing about the JUKI, besides being effortlessly able to switch between a sewing and a quilting machine, is the offhand way you can go about it!

The tapered head and the extended visibility, the culprit for the latter being the large extended table, enable you to truly feel free while in the process of quilting.

  • Adjustable Foot Pressure

The worst thing about sewing machines that don’t let you adjust the foot pressure is the fact that they seriously dampen the ability of a sewer to play with different fabric.

You can’t really expect to knock out a heavyweight with a lightweight punch and the same applies vice-versa.

That is why the ability to simply turn a knob and set the pressure according to your needs is that much of any important trait.

  • Large Extension Table

We have mentioned the table quite a few times before, but it also deserves to have its own dedicated place in this article.

Judging by the look of things, one would think that you could sew or quilt almost any apparel on it.

Ding-ding!

You are more than right, coincidentally speaking, we are yet to find a task too tough for the TL-200Qi.

  • Automatic Thread Cutter

Not only does it cut and trim, with the drop-in feed it is easy to gauge just how much thread is left in the machine.

  • Only One Straight Stitch

While newbies might see this as a disadvantage, parring with the logic that more is always better, the experienced sewer knows that the straight stitch is used in 99% of the jobs.

While having hundreds of stitches readily available does sound alluring, it is quite irresponsible to think in such a way as you won’t be using the other stitches at all!

PROS

  • Dedicated To Intermediate And Professional Users
  • Adjustable Foot Pressure
  • Gauge The Amount Of Thread Available In The Machine
  • Switch Between Sewing And Quilting With Ease
  • Large Work Area Enables You To Sew/Quilt Anything
  • Fastest Sewing Speed Recorded Till Date
  • Supports Heavy-Duty Usage
  • Doesn’t Wear Out Easily

CONS

  • Steep Learning Curve
  • Beginners Will Feel Lost

Conclusion

With all this being said, we think that it’s important to note once more that this is definitely not a beginner machine.

The first thing a newbie would do is complain about the lack of stitches, claiming to be robbed out of his creativity.

Little does he know that most of the stitches will never see the light of day, even after years of sewing.

We digress and on the other hand, this is one of the rarer models that simply shoots to the sky and aims to collect the star sewers among us.

Professionals and shops alike will love working with the TL-2000Qi as it accompanies everything a sewer needs to create huge amounts of altered apparel, in no time!

The best purchase we’ve ever made, by far.
