Yesterday, with the help of my husband and tax return, I pulled the trigger on the Juki Exceed F600.
WHAT??? What happened to the industrial machine???
I thought about it a lot. The industrial Juki 3500 I was considering does ONE thing very well, a straight stitch. In reality, I need more than just that. Yes, I have my Sapphire 850 but when it comes to button holes, although it creates beautiful results, is not reliable on all fabrics all the time. I need a strong machine which can sail over seams without struggling and creating tiny stitches, I need a machine that can edge stitch a collar without building a bird’s nest first. And after reading a plethora of information and positive reviews on PatternReview, I think this is the machine I need.
It’s coming early next week and until then, enjoy this goofy video:
