Juki TL-98, TL2000Qi and TL2010Q sewing machines are almost identical to the Brother PQ-1500S, except the Brother has exclusive pin feeding mechanism, a longer 7 mm versus 6 mm stitch length, and several extra feet (invisible zipper and fabric separating foot). Juki has an exclusive foot control switch for auto thread trim and raising needle all in one operation (saves time) Both machines do equally well straight seaming, but have varied in past freemotion quilting performance which has now been corrected. Brother also has a heavier duty walking foot attachment. The Juki TL98 was made in Japan and the Brother PQ1500S and Janome 1600P are made in Taiwan. Juki TL2000 and 2010 are now made near Shanghai.

Why does my needle thread break on freemotion when straight stitch sewing is fine.
For freemotion quilting on a frame, please try Schmetz Size 16 Denim needles, A&E Signature cotton quilting thread, fabric pressure gauge at 1/2 way (down or up on the window gauge),and make sure the quilt is down flat against the flatbed of the machine so fabric won't ride up and down on the needle (flagging). Also run the machine faster and move the fabric slower, so the needle won't bend in the fabric. Also feel for any needle burrs on the rotary hook, needle plate or bobbin case that might catch thread. Burrs can be polished off with Crocus cloth from the hardware stores. Please advise what works or doesn't work for you. John Douthat, Owner & Tech
