Juki J350 Miyabi Sit Down Quilter
Quilting is a special type of crafting in that it creates something that is both useful today and can be passed down and enjoyed from generation to generation. It is also a craft that has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years. In addition to the abundance of delightful fabrics and patterns, there are so many tools and machines on the market today that make quilting much easier than in years past.
One such product is the Juki Miyabi J-350QVP S Sit Down Free Motion Quilting Machine and Table. Developed for the true quilting enthusiast, it is the only sit-down longarm quilter that has both automatic thread trimmers and built-in Juki SmartStitch stitch regulator system.
As its name “Miyabi,” which is Japanese for “elegance” implies, every single stitch will be elegant with the J-350QVP S.
Features of the Miyabi J-350QVP S
The Juki engineers developed this machine for the quilter who desires the utmost in convenience and comfort. Touting all the bells and whistles, the J-350QVP S delivers everything a modern quilter could ask for.
SmartStitch: Stitch Regulator System Visibility – No matter what speed you run the J-350QVP S at, accuracy and precision will not suffer. When the stitch mode is selected, the machine’s image sensors keep the stitch lengths flawless by reading every movement exactly.

Increased Visibility – With 10” high and 18” throat space, the visibility of the J-350QVP S is ideal for any sized quilting project.
Large Quilting Table – With an accommodating workspace of up to 50” (with optional leafs) and 30” overall depth sitting on an adjustable-height metal stand, quilters can sit or stand comfortably while creating works of art both small and large.
Programmable LCD Touchscreen – This allows for complete customization to fit a quilter’s individual style. The screen brightness, foot pedal control and preferred needle up or down positions can all be modified with a simple touch.
Speed Regulation – The J-350QVP S reaches a maximum sewing speed of 2200spm and allows for variable speed control. The speed can also be customized and preferred settings saved for free motion, micro stipples and ruler work.
