I had been thinking about getting a compact machine that would be a nice backup machine as well as function as a portable while RVing. I currently use a Brother Quattro and Brother SE270D and primarily do crafts, machine embroidery, and quilting with them. When this deal came up, I couldn’t pass it up!Although I have never tried using other portable machines like a Singer featherweight or a Janome Jem, I thought I would give the Juki a try. Juki has a good reputation for its commercial and higher end machines. I also wanted something that was not computerized as my backup since I would be moving it quite a bit.Pros:Lightweight – weighs 12 pounds reportedly; I weighed it at 12.8Easy to use out of the box – it has similar bobbin winding, top loading bobbin, and threading as my other Brother machines; you do have to thread through the top…ReplyCandy Beauchamp “CandysRaves”says:Great machine for crafty types. A few years ago my daughter asked me to make her a dress. I bought the cheapest sewing machine I could find and it took me several days just to figure out how to make it work, and even longer to get the dress put together.
In the end, my promise was fulfilled and I gave the sewing machine away.Well, my daughter is bigger now and we were looking at things to do together. And she remember that dress I made her. “Mommy, it would be great if we could make clothes together!” Umm…yeah…right. Luckily, I got the JUKI HZL-27Z Sewing Machine this time around, or our “together time” could have been a disaster!First off: This machine scared me right out of the box. It has all these pictures of stitches, and drawings on it that I thought I was supposed to understand right away. Luckily, I calmed down and realized that mostly it was step-by-step instructions on how to set the machine up and get it ready to sew.Secondly: I really couldn’t remember much from…ReplyPam Jsays:Frustrated by this machine I must have gotten a dud or something. I spent a whole week struggling with this machine and ended up returning it. For the life of me, no matter what, I could not adjust the tension on a simple straight stitch as the top stitch seems to be pulling tight. On top of it, it keeps randomly skipping stitches. I like to sew, have owned several and heard great things about Juki but this is not for me. Back to my Janome. I bought this machine based on reviews, supposed ease of use for different types of fabric, and went ahead with the purchase because of the promotions price
