The Juki TL2010 is an awesome sewing machine. Since that original hiccup there's been not a single other problem. I've done a bunch of straight line and free motion quilting too, so it's been put through the wringer. I know that having so much throat space directly relates to my growth in free motion quilting. I'm still glad I went with a non-computerized machine because I really feel this Juki is built to last. I get out my old Kenmore to zigzag stitch my binding, and that's it! It seems to need less cleaning than my Kenmore and Pfaff's did, but maybe it just feels that way because it's easier to clean (the openings are bigger). My favorite feature might be the foot pedal activated thread cutter. Mmm.... love that! If you're looking for a quality quilting machine I absolutely recommend the Juki TL2010 from Sew Vac Direct.

I still use 505 Adhesive basting spray. Actually, I stock up on it and make sure to never, ever, ever run out. Someone was shocked I was able to quilt that minky backing so successfully, but I couldn't even tell the difference when quilting that vs. quilting cotton as far as shifting, etc. As long as I give a good, even coating, this basting spray holds tight. The best price I've found is at Sew for Less. They have the HUGE 17 oz can for just $13.50! I always get at least 2 to save on shipping. If you're interested, see how basting spray works. Once I tried it, I've never wanted to go back.
Ok, so that's the big review update. Possibly you got bored after a few sentences and ran off to do some sewing. I'm OK with that. Enjoy the weekend!
