Yes. I KNOW. There are already one million or so Juki threads.. mostly on the same Juki I have .. the 600..
But no way I was going to let those other members with other machine brands start threads without having a Juki thread too.. if for no other reason.. then to irritate those who are tired of hearing what fabulous machines those Jukis are..
So post your Juki Love here.. and link to the other threads when and if you can..

I have the f600. I have owned it for three months. I reviewed it on PR. I keep wondering...if Juki can make a machine that sews this well at this price point ($899)...what the heck could they do if they manufactured a machine that sells for two or three times as much? I am convinced that the engineers who designed this machine can either sew...or they tested it with real sewers.

So yes, I love my Juki!

I LOVE all my Juki machines. I started with the TL98Q with intentions of using it for quilting, but I now only use it for garment sewing. It is so amazing that I can use industrial presser feet made for industrial single needle locksttich machines on my TL 98Q. As to date, I have purchased and used zipper feet (there are several types), spring hemmers in different sizes (made sewing rolled hems so easy and super fast). I also purchased several binders but have not had a chance to use them yet. I bought an adjustable shirring/gathering foot today and trying try it out tomorrow. I am now looking forward to making lots and lots of ruffles.
I also have the F600 which I love to use for free motion quilitng. I never liked the hopping quilting feet on my other machines (Pfaff, Bernina, Janome). The F600 is my go to machine for FMQ.
I also have the MO735 and 644D sergers. The latter Is set up for 3 thread overlock and the 735 is set up for just coverstitching.
juki customer service is the best. However, the only Juki dealer in the island is now off the Juki USA list. So now, I don't have a dealer I can take my machines for service or repair any more. But, so far I have not had any big problems. I have mailed the F600 and 735 to a wonderful service center in GA for warranty service and repair. I have to pay for postage,but all work is free, even return shippipng. Postage is half the cost of getting them serviced here.

I am now considering buying a Juki zigzag industrial machine. If only they made a TL model that can also sew zigzag. and if they do I am definitely buying one.

I love Juki!

I love my Juki F600 she sews so well and she is also a very quiet girl when she is working. She doesn't get histerical when she finds herself having to go over those thick heavy jean seams, she just does it like a normal seam. She doesn't chew up thin fabrics like some of her "sisters" of other brands. When I am tired she helps me keep a straight sewing line. I'm not an expert sewer but she makes my work look good.
How could I not love her?

I just saw several nice Jukis listed on HSN, including 2 Exceeds and what appears to be the 2010. Prices were pretty decent and some were on flex pay, making them accessible to many. Interestingly, the F300 is listed at $100 over the F400.

That doesn't surprise me.. if I recall when they first came on the market.. you could even get the 600 for around the same price as the lower end models.. the 300 and 400.. it was a no brainer and the reason so many just paid the small amount more for the upgrade.
I hope someone links all the other previous juki threads to this one ..

Ahhhhh, a Juki Love thread!!! Count me in! I've had my F600 for several months., and I could not be happier.

I recently made DD's wedding gown on my F600...I can't believe how well it handled going back and forth between silk charmeuse and heavy corded lace without any adjustments . Then I did serious alterations to a dozen pair of stretch demin jeans without a whimper from from my Juki. Now I'm sewing myself a new all-knit wardrobe mostly on this machine (with some help from my Brother 1034d serger)....wow, even lightweight rayon knits just glide through my Juki without bunching, slipping, or sinking into the throat plate.

I love this machine so much that I'd like to look at the Juki sergers.

***** <3 Juki Love <3 *****

When I purchased my Juki.. sight unseen.. and not even a trial run.. I still had confidence in my decision. I already knew that Juki made some of the best machines for commercial work, and felt that as they had not just rushed out into the home sewing market long ago. they had taken their time to develop these new models just for us. So I would also have confidence in their sergers.
