Juki TL-18 QVP
This mechanical straight stitch machine is a sturdy and powerful option for basic sewing and quilting. The machine is small enough to be portable and is a versatile option for both piecing and quilting. The speed is adjustable so you can do everything from finicky curved seams to power strip piecing. The box feed in combination with adjustable presser foot pressure provides superior stitch quality for a variety of light to heavy weight fabrics.
Quilters love the built-in cone thread stand as we often have large cones of thread rather than just small spools. The needle down feature, combined with the hands-free option with the knee lever, are absolute requirements for becoming successful at free motion quilting with a sit-down machine.
Float Function (Micro-Lifter):
Now equipped with the same mechanism as JUKI industrial sewing machines for preventing uneven sewing on quilts and velvet, as well as stretched stitches on knit fabrics. The presser foot floats 0 to 2mm above the material making it useful for sewing over thick seams.
Attachment Mounting Plate:
A separate attachment mounting plate for installing fabric guides and other attachments. This extends the life of the sewing machine, as it can now be replaced when the mounting holes become damaged.
LED Sewing Light Brightness Adjustment:
A switch in the needle area allows you to adjust the brightness of the light between high, medium, low, and off.
Maximum Sewing Speed Control
Easily control your sewing speed from 200 to 1500 SPM with the adjustable slide.
The feed dog can be raised and lowered by moving the lever. Perform free-motion quilting and free-hand embroidery with ease.
Automatic Needle Threader
The automatic needle threader quickly and easily threads the needle without eyestrain, allowing you to change thread colors as often as you wish.
Automatic Thread Trimmer
Perfectly trim the needle and bobbin threads with the simple push of a button of foot pedal activation. Industrial sewing machine technology provides exceptional durability, noise control and cutting. Sewing can continue after automatic cutting even if the bobbin thread is not visible above the throat space.
No matter the thread type, sub-tension ensures stitches are sewn with a balanced thread tension. Achieve perfectly balanced threads with every stitch
Presser Foot Pressure Adjustment:
Turn the regulator on top of the machine to adjust the presser foot pressure according to the thickness of the fabric.
Needle Up/Down Control
Each press or push of the needle up/down switch moves the needle halfway up or down. Hold the switch down to sew a slow single stitch – useful when sewing corners and at the end of stitching.
Powerfully feeds multiple fabric layers from both top and bottom without shifting.
