How are you liking your Juki F2010? I'm looking between that and the Janome 1600p.

Have you looked at the brother pq1500s - it is the same thing but comes with the walking foot, and a few others as standard.

I've got a Brother PQ1500S too and it's a fabulous machine. I had a Janome 1600 prior to the Brother but didn't like it nearly as much...sold it as a package with the quilting frame because incorrect measurements were given for the frame and it didn't fit in the room. Don't know what it was with the Janome, but it just wasn't me....and my sewing room is full of other Janome models.

Bought a different frame and the Brother (separately) but a lot of the time the Brother is sitting on a table in the sewing room. Not sure I will ever part with the Brother, just love sewing with it!

All my 4 other machines are janome - and I have always owned janome's. I was actually talked into the machine by the dealer - I wanted the janome - but with all the extra feet, fabric separator, table, that brother give you over the janome I was persuaded.

I love it - it took me a little to bond with PQ (probably because he wasn't a janome) but it is now the machine I use 90% of the time - he can sew through anything perfectly - they only do one thing but they do it perfectly.

I also can buy industrial feet for the PQ - probably can for the janome too, they are sew much cheaper and huge variety of binders etc too.

It is a great machine - you won't be disappointed.

I have the 1600P-DBX which takes industrial round shank needles versus the other models that take the regular sewing machine flat shank ones. It's my primary machine for garment sewing. I believe the Juki is lighter than the Janome, but otherwise they do the same thing - beautiful straight stitches.

The Janome does take high shank feet, I think all of the straight stitch models across the different lines (Babylock - Jane, Viking Mega Quilter, the Brother mentioned previously, etc.) all do. I have acquired all sorts of feet piecemeal over the years, lots of which when I was abroad in Asia. The Ebay store "Sharp Sewing" out of L.A. also has helped me expand my collection of binders.

The last time I checked the only big difference between the Juki and the Janome is the Juki having a thread cutting button on the foot pedal while the Janome's thread cutter button is across the head of the machine.

Isn't the Singer S16 essentially the same machine?

Yep, that Singer looks like the Janome. Didn't know about this machine, thanks for bringing it up. I think there are a handful of factories left rolling out machines and some of the brands are made in the same place with different stickers slapped on the face. Viking's Mega Quilter is also another machine that looks just like the Janome and Singer.

Both are great machines. Why did I pick a Janome 1600P with less accessories over the Juki 2010? Less moving parts which means to potentially less breakdowns. The feed dogs can't be lowered on the 1600P--it requires a special plate to raise the fabric so it doesn't come in contact with the feed dogs. My boss says both are great, but feels the 1600P has the edge as far as quality of construction.

I went with the machine he felt had the "edge" as well as input from my sewing friends. I didn't need all the extras that the Juki 2010 has and that was okay. I do recommend the Juki to quilters because of all the wonderful quilting type of accessories that are standard equipment and come with the machine.

I wouldn't worry about which one to buy so test drive both and go with your heart. Go with the one that feels right to you. The Janome just felt right to me, and I have other Janomes and the quality is superb.

Why wouldn't I buy a Singer "clone"? Because of warranty coverage. For warranty work, my dealer does sell Singers but is not an "authorized" Singer repair center so it doesn't get reimbursed by Singer for repairs under warranty. It has to get shipped out whether it's the dealer or the customer. As a Janome authorized repair center, it does get reimbursed by Janome for repairs done under warranty. So just double check on warranty coverage at your local dealer and how machines are serviced under warranty. This might be the deciding factor.
