Stacie, yes the Juki TL98Q would be the best machine for piecing because it has the best 1/4" seam foot included, trims the top and bobbin thread automatically at the end of each seam, so you don't have to chain off and use scissors to cut between the pieces, stops with the needle down if you need to pivot or turn corners, raises the needle automatically when you trim threads at the beginning or ending of a seam, and has the knee lifter for presser foot lift when inserting or removing fabric under the foot. So, you never really have to turn the handwheel and never have to raise the presser foot with your hand unless you just want to. That saves a lot of time and makes it more fun to do piecing.

What are the differences between the new Juki TL98Q and the old TL98E?
The new Juki TL98Q "quilting" machine
has many improvements over the old TL98E "tailoring" but keeps all the features of the TL98E.
-2 heavy duty quilting feet 1/4" (for straight-line channel quilting) and 1/5" (for free motion quilting and embroidery). Measurements are from needle to outside of metal ring and have greater visibility.
-Built-in Automatic needle threader: push lever threads the needle eye for you.
-Heavy duty, metal arm Even Feed Walking Foot attachment is less apt to break than the earlier plastic arm model.
-Telescopic Thread Stand antenna allows height adjustment for threads and quilting frames (especially the Grace whose foot control table on top ran into the fixed height thread stand antenna on the TL98E).
-Thread cutting Knife Safety to prevent the thread trimmer arm from coming in contact with the needle which could cause breakage.
-Reduced thead trimmer noise (the clicks you hear when pressing the button on the machine or depressing the secondary thread trimming red foot control)
-Improved feed dog up/down control mechanism. Less apt to stick in the upper or lower position. More control in the knob.
-Parts availability increased for interchangeability without complete sub-assemblies.
All this for the same price that the TL98E sold for. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Will the Juki TL 98Q sew several thicknesses of leather as in a coat or purse-leather, not belt-leather? And, will it use heavy-thread suitable for the leather? Will the pressure foot lift high enough to place the already joined seams under it?
The Juki TL98Q will sew GARMENT leather with Organ 15x2 leather point needles up to size 18, located at Organ leather point needles.
Thread size should not take up more than 1/2 the size of the needle eye, so you can use thread up to that size depending on the needle size (larger needles have bigger eyes and allow thicker apparel thread, but not upholstery thread).
Since the presser foot lever lifts 9mm and the knee lever lifts 12mm, it will generally sew whatever apparel fabric is under the foot regardless of the number of plys, but not hard leather, vinyl or upholstery fabrics.
To reduce ply slippage or uneven feeding on garment leather use an optional high shank screw-on Superior roller foot R2 or Teflon coated foot MT1. The heavy duty walking foot included with the TL98Q is primarily for softer fabrics than garment leather. Hope this helps. John Douthat, Owner & Tech
I would like to know the difference between the Juki Q and the Juki QE. I need a machine to use on a Pennywinkle quilting frame and a Juki was recommended because it has a larger throat area for the quilt. I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thank You
Kathy, the Juki TL98Q at http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp08115.html has automatic underbed thread trimmers for top and bobbin threads, whenever you jump from one pattern or position on the frame t another.. It eliminates having to use scissors over the quilt to trim threads before moving the machine or after finishing a line of stitching. It also eliminates having to bring up the bobbin thread. The Q also has automatic needle threader, and a large extension table to use wheneve the machine is off the frame. The QE does not have these features. John Douthat, owner and tech.
P.S. Grace Speed Control 3-way Control Box at http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp14731.html allows you to control start/stop, speed and thread trimming from the box which can be mounted on either end of the machine. Grace Sure Stitch at http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp10526.html or Quilters Cruise Control at http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp09265.html allows you to maintain consistent stitch length regulation regardless of how fast you move the machine head over the quilt.
Juki 98Q My Juki worked great for piecing two quilts. I have the smaller one mounted on a Flynn multi-frame. The needle thread continually breaks as I free-motion quilt. I have tried several needles, adjusted the tension, re-threaded and even tried different threads. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Free motion quilting and piecing were the reasons I bought this machine. You have no idea how frustrating this is! Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Catherine, have you tried all the suggestions we have on the FAQ section of our Juki TL98Q page http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp08115.html
If you have any burr on the rotary hook and/or hook point, foot, needle plate hole, or bobbin case that is hanging up the thread, it must be polished off first with fine Crocus cloth from the hardware store. We use Schmetz Jeans needles size 16, A&E Signature cotton quilting thread. uniformly wound bobbins, fabric flat against bed, pressure at 1/2, tension at balance sew test, and higher speed to make sure the needle does not bend going into our out of the fabric, which can cause skipping or breaking needles. After servicing TL98Qs, putting in the new needle and running fast over tautly held fabric, we never have a problem with skipping, shreading or breaking thread. If the Juki is working fine for piecing, it should work just as well on the frame if all the other free motion variables are under control.
This is the best machine I have ever owned. I purchased it when it first came out and I now need a new light for it. It still sews like a dream and I have never had to take it in for repairs or adjustments. I keep it cleaned and oiled and adjusted and it sews like a dream. I purchased mine in Slidell, Louisiana from Allbrands.com
My order came in good time. This is a good package to get me started at a very competitive price. Everything came as ordered. No damage.
I’m glad to do business with you and support the Louisiana economy in these difficult times.
I have had nothing but great products and service from ALLBRANDS. When I am looking for anything to do with sewing I always check ALLBRANDS first. Della
Truly a great company to do business with. Highly recommend to everyone wanting great customer service and service as advertized.
This is the 2nd Juki purchase I have made through your company. Both machines arrived in good time and excellent condition and I love sewing on my Juki! Thank you
My wife actually ordered this machine. She was very pleased with your prompt service. So far very happy with the machine.

It was the easiest and by far the simplest experience to be had to this point!

This was a pleasant experience getting my wife a Quilting set-up. I am sure that once I get it all set up, she will enjoy it a lot more. Right now she is using the Juki machine sewing the quilt pieces together. So far she has stated that she really enjoys her Juki machine.

It would have been nice to have note somewhere on the product information that it would take 2-3 weeds for the delivery of the Little Gracie II. I didn't mind the wait but I didn't know about it until I contacted your customer support. I love the Juki sewing machint. I haven't had a chance yet to really try the quilting frame.
I love my new Juki. I bought the Juki because I wanted to be able to do machine quilting. I am a novice quilter and have made about 4 quilts that I had to tie because I didn't have a walking foot for my 52-yr. old machine, and didn't have space to fit a large quilt under the arm. I needed good straight stitching, didn't need or care about embroidery, and I wanted a long arm machine so that I could machine quilt a large bedspread. The Juki has several features that I really like. First of all, it sews straight almost by itself. It's fast, but the foot control is very responsive, so it's easy to control the speed. I love the button for moving the needle up and down, and the thread cutter is amazingly useful, keeping my hands free as I move from one bit of stitching to another. It is wonderful at winding bobbins. <br><br> There is no store in my area that carries Jukis, and I had been anxious about buying a machine from the web. However, I took a chance because it was a good price and had the features I wanted, including a lever for dropping the feed. When it arrived I had a little trouble with the needle threader, but sent an e-mail to the vendor, AllBrands, and they were very helpful. They told me what to try and, even though it wasn't clear that the threader was damaged, sent me a new part for it. It now works fine. The person at AllBrands always answers my e-mails promptly. I am delighted with this machine!

I talked to Alex and he helped me through the repair - a cable was not connected to the mother board. It's great, don't need to return, please cancel my request and thanks, Alex was an awesome help!
