WoW! WoW! WoW!
WoW! WoW! WoW WoW!
WoW! WoW!

My husband and I drove to to Concord after work to pick up the holy grail of sewing machines. All hail the Juki Exceed F600!

I cannot believe how quiet this machine is, how smooth, how easy to use!



The first thing I did after taking it out of the box is wind a bobbin and I didn't read anywhere about how quiet the second motor is, virtually silent! And it started winding when I moved the arm over to the bobbin. No, I didn't read the manual (thoroughly) so I was surprised when it started winding without pushing any other button.

You could easily sew in the same room as a sleeping baby, this machine is THAT quiet! I tried edge stitching and with this machine, it was easy peasy, there was no struggling to keep the fabric from veering off, it was just EASY! You can really relax and let the machine do the work.

With all the excitement today, I'm exhausted. I have a shirt to finish and I'm looking forward to doing that tomorrow after work.

Thanks everyone, for enabling me to buy this amazing machine without even trying it out first! This is a sewing machine that really lives up to the hype!

I DID read the manual on the way home in the car, but not carefully. I'm a very intuitive person, especially when it comes to sewing machines. The bobbin winding thing just took me by surprise, bobbin wound successfully.

DH is German raised and very technical, he was impressed with the specs right off the bat, without seeing the machine in person. He came with me to Canadian Steam Iron to pay for the machine and was really entertained by Larry, the son of the original owner.

He loves the LED lighting and if it makes me happy, it makes him happy. :D

Good for you! If I liked our Juki dealer here, I would be tempted to go and try this machine out that so many love dearly.

Okay, you're killing me here. I still have pictures of mine and I took some in the dark with the machine on and the lighting lit up the room. Congratulations. I'm glad you love it. Now come back after you've sewn on it some. I know your dealer had to order it, so chances are the kinks are all worked out. I thought it was not going to be in until tomorrow?
