One-needle, lockstitch portable sewing machine with automatic thread trimmer for tailoring, quilting, dressmaking and many other uses.
Juki® TL-98Q also includes the following exciting features:
Auto thread trimmer
The machine is equipped with an automatic thread trimming device which simultaneously cuts the needle and bobbin threads at the sewing end by lightly pressing the push button.
It uses the thread trimming mechanism which is similar to the industrial sewing machine type, cutting thin through thick threads without fail.
Foot pedal switch for thread trimming
As with an industrial sewing machine, the thread trimmer is actuated with the foot pedal switch. A series of basic sewing steps, "Sewing start -> Stop -> Thread trimming," can be easily controlled by operating the foot pedal switch. This helps increase sewing efficiency.
Easy bobbin replacement
The take out aperture in the bobbin case is widened to facilitate bobbin removal. The auxiliary table is also provided with a removable plate which allows you to easily remove/load bobbins even when the auxiliary table is installed on the machine.
The feed dog can be raised and lowered by a switch with ease. When you sew quilting, you can sew curve stitches easily. The machine has a wider handling area than a conventional sewing machine and allows you to easily handle large material like quilting fabric.
| ||This machine is provided as standard with a quilt attachment|
A quilt attachment is supplied together with the machine. This enables you to perform quilting and freehand embroidery whenever you want.
Heavy-weight materials are sewn with ease
The speed control mechanism, by means of microcomputer and high power, makes it possible to sew material at low speeds, promising consistent sewing ability even when using heavy weight materials. If using a knee lifter lever which allows you to raise/lower the presser foot without using your hands, the presser foot can be raised as high as 12mm. So, you can set heavy weight material on the machine with ease.
Predetermined stop position of the needle (immediate stop)
When you stop the sewing machine, it will come to an accurate stop with its needle down. In addition, a newly incorporated needle up/down switch allows the operator to move the needle up/down as desired.
With its reliable feed, the walking foot ensures the machine's ability to produce beautiful seams in garments made from georgette, leather, velvet, and other difficult to feed materials.
Adjustment of pressing pressure
Presser foot pressure can be adjusted according to light to heavy weight materials, or other types of materials being sewn.
Thread tension scale
The machine is provided with the thread tension scale, which allows you to adjust the tension to the thread and material to be used.
The machine automatically stops bobbin winding
To wind a bobbin, all you have to do is load the bobbin in the bobbin winder. When the bobbin is fully wound with thread, the bobbin winder automatically stops its rotation.
Threading the machine head
The thread tension take up lever has a slit for easier threading.
The machine is lightweight and portable.
This portable, lightweight machine is easy to transport and can be carried wherever you want to perform sewing operations.
The machine is equipped as standard with an HA-type needle the same type supplied with household sewing machines and small overlock machines. This type of needle can never be attached incorrectly.
