Sewing and quilting are two of the most relaxing and satisfying things a person can do. Naturally, it is important that one has the proper equipment to produce a beautiful product and avoid frustration. To assist in this endeavor the Juki Company has developed the J150 QVP Quilting Machine which offers high-speed free motion sewing and quilting digital technology.
When working on a project the most important thing is having a machine that is easy to operate, has easy settings and provides simple instructions. This was all taken into consideration when the Juki engineers were developing this machine which combines excellent sewing features and easy to follow directions.
Juki J150 QVP Features
Although listed as a quilting machine, the Juki J150 QVP is also excellent for straight sewing. This is important when putting together quilting pieces or doing other types of sewing.
One of the most important parts of this machine is its large workspace which makes it easy to control quilts, or other types of sewing, while stitching the material. It has a 12” wide throat space and extended table space making it an excellent area on which to work with bulky materials.
Its One-Touch Switching to Free Motion Mode, controlled by a button, makes it a simple operation to sew with a straight or free motion stitch. This is important when wishing to put your own design on a garment or quilt.
An adjustable LED light, which can be adjusted to five different levels, makes it easy to see when inserting and removing thick fabrics. In addition, a special pressure foot allows a height of up to 13.5mm providing plenty of room to insert or remove quilts.
All sewing and quilting machines require oil to be added from time to time. This machine provides a maximum fill oil tank, located with a filter, at the front of the machine.
A maximum sewing speed of 2,500spm makes it easy to sew at a convenient speed. Naturally, sewing seams can be done at a faster speed than with things such as triangles or curves.
