Juki TL-2010Q is one of the most popular sewing/quilting machines. It is one of those classics that stay loved and well-used even with all the latest technology and computerized sewing machines that come up year after year.
The TL-2010Q is a well-built, powerful, workhorse of a sewing machine. It is a single needle, household sewing machine, with a lot of features and accessories for quilting, tailoring, apparel, and home décor. It is often described as a “quilter’s dream”. It has a large throat space, 9″ from the needle to the right and 6 3/4″ top to bottom, which is helpful for quilting and larger projects, as well as two types of quilting feet also supplied with the machine – a 1/5 quilting foot and a 1/4 quilting foot.
What all Juki sewing machines are known for, and this one also brings it, is the quality of the stitches. The TL-2010Q can do the impeccable straight stitch, and it can sew through multiple layers of fabric with ease. It has a maximum sewing speed of 1,500 stitches per minute, so it can definitely keep up with your quilting projects. It is also very quiet, due to the special oils used in its construction.
The Juki TL-2010Q is made mostly of aluminum die-cast, which makes it very sturdy, plus it has an extra large table for quilting and other larger projects. It is not particularly lightweight and despite being called “portable” and having a carry handle, it is a real drag to move around. It weighs in at a hefty 25.4 lbs.
