I’ve had so many emails about this machine since I last mentioned it on my blog…so I thought I’d let you know how we were getting along! The full review/mashup of the Juki TL-2010Q and my Bernina Aurora 440 can be found here.
I’ve actually been using my Bernina more than the Juki, but it all depends on what I’m sewing. I was sewing strip sets together this week and the Bernina was just too slow for me. So I pulled out the Juki and whipped the strip sets out in no time. Love the speed of this machine and it’s still very quiet! Except the walking foot…it’s very loud and clanky!
My only problem so far has been with the Compensating Presser Foot (basically a regular foot with a guide on the side that only allows you to sew a 1/4″ seam…pretty handy for piecing). It sits too far to the right when in place, so the needle rubs the foot edge and it’s not a 1/4″ seam. Juki is sending me a new foot…but I’m not convinced the foot is the problem. Crossing fingers!
I broke out the WIP’s today…forcing myself to work on a block every few days until they are done!
This snowman fabric by Dear Stella is my favorite Christmas of the year. It pairs so nicely with the reds and greens of Hazel too!
Wilson was a bit under the weather this weekend…but luckily he seems to be feeling better and no one is more happy about it than Sophie. They have the exact same hair color after all. ;)
Even though things look pretty much the same on the blog, I made the switch to WordPress this summer. Most blog subscriptions should have moved over automatically, but if you aren’t receiving new posts, you may need to re-add the blog to get the newest version.
I’ve had lots of people let me know they weren’t receiving the newest posts…and this is probably the reason why! Take a sec and re-add to the blog to whatever Reader you use…and it should update and show you new posts. At least when I write them. ;)
