Juki TL-2010Q review

Sewing Machine Reviews Recommendation Level : HIGH

You can say that Juki TL-2010Q is a monster. The performance of this sewing machine is high class. First of all, let me tell you one thing, this is a straight stitch only machine and it doesn’t do zig-zag. It is a machine designed for quilters.

The automatic thread cutter is something that you really don’t see on many machines. With the automatic thread cutter, you don’t have to pull out the fabric and cut it with the manual cutter, just push the thread cutter button and you can pull the fabric out.

Juki TL-2010Q is a great machine for quilters. With the needle up/down feature, if you are quilting and you want to make some adjustments to your quilt, the machine will memorize the position of the needle so that you can easily make the adjustments. If you have set the needle in down position, the machine will stop sewing with needle down. It is a seamless machine for quilting. It has an automatic needle threader as well.

You can control the sewing speed using the speed control slider. Turtle and rabbit icons on the speed control slider denote high and low speeds. You can also sew with foot pedal. The large extension table of Juki TL-2010Q is something that quilters will love. The best thing about this sewing machine is that it is all metal. Plastic parts are very limited which justifies the price of the machine. The arm and bed of this machine is constructed of aluminum die-casting.

You can drop the feed dogs using a switch. The reverse stitch lever is slightly bigger than you normally see on other sewing machines. The stitch length can be adjusted using a dial. It has LED work lights that do a reasonable job in the dark.Juki TL-2010Q comes with a knee lever to control the presser foot with your knee. It is a handy feature. The bobbins are metal and there is a cute little entry way to access the bobbins without removing the extension table.There is a presser foot pressure adjuster, which comes really handy when dealing with multiple layers of fabric.

One thing you have to keep in mind before buying this machine is that, it needs to be oiled often. The oil comes included in the box. Juki says you need to oil this machine every 8 hours of sewing. You will have to read the user manual completely to know all the features of this sewing machine. There are instructions on how to maintain this machine. So don’t start without reading the manual. One thing I forgot to mention was that it comes with a soft cover.

Usability

One of the best quilting machines ever reviewed by Sewing Machine Reviews. It has a solid metal body. It sews really fast, you will be surprised for sure. The foot pedal is multi-purpose, you can do normal sewing and thread cutting on this. I did some blankets on this machine, it has impressed me quite a bit. The machine is easy to thread. The ease of use is one big thing about this machine. You can easily move the fabric around without getting tangled.

Juki TL-2010Q is a machine made to last. Most users have been really impressed with the sewing speed of this machine. It can sew any kind of fabric you throw at it. It comes with a lot of feet as accessories.

Limitations

It doesn’t have an LCD screen to view the controls.  Yes, it is just a mechanical straight stitch only sewing machine. It doesn’t have a storage compartment to store your accessories. The oiling thing can also be considered as a limitation.

Verdict

The build quality and performance is really impressive. I would suggest you to go through the features of this sewing machine once more and if you still feel, that is all you want, just buy it. Juki hasn’t compromised on quality, at least on this machine.
