I’m about to burst with excitement to share with you that I am officially a Juki Junkie! I have been crushing on the Juki TL-2010Q Quilting and Sewing Machine for about six months now. You can watch my Unboxing video HERE.
What got my attention was the reputation the Juki TL-2010Q has for being an extremely reliable perfect straight stitch every single time.
I also love that it’s semi-industrial, constructed of aluminum die-casting making it a horse work machine that you are unlikely to have any problems with.
The most important thing to note about the Juki TL-2010Q is that it only does a straight stitch, yes you read that right, no zig-zag. It is this reason why it offers such a superior straight stitch because that is its sole purpose. This also means that the needle does not move, no jigging of the needle over to get a scant ¼”, instead you use the foot which comes with this machine which is at a perfect scant ¼”.
The Juki TL-2010Q is an excellent sewing machine for quilters that would like an extra large throat/harp space for piecing and free-motion quilting. It’s also, a fantastic choice for bag makers and home decor and it is capable of easily sewing through many layers of fabric.
There are currently four TL models offered by Juki. If you are unsure which one is right for you, you may find this Juki Junkies Comparison Chart useful.
FEATURES OF THE JUKI TL-2010Q:
When it comes to features of a sewing machine I consider speed control, needle down function, and a thread cutter a must for anyone looking to up their game with quilting and sewing. As for the rest of the features the Juki TL-2010Q offers, they are the cherry on top!
Sewing Speed Control
Speed Control is particularly useful for new sewers and also essential for free-motion quilting.
Needle Down Function
The Needle Down Function ensures that when you come to a stop your needle will always be in the down position. You will notice me saying in my tutorials all the time that “I have my needle down” because this is critical when turning or correcting the position of your fabric.
Oh yes, I love a thread cutter! Thread cutters save time and thread. This machine takes this to the next level by adding a foot controller with a thread-trimming function. If for any reason you don’t like this feature you can purchase the Foot Pedal Switch Stopper HERE.
Knee Lifter Lever
The Knee Lifter Lever allows you to lift and lower your presser foot without using your hands.
Industrial Sub-Tension System
To be honest, I don’t really understand that, but basically, it has awesome adjustable tension.
Large Throat/ Harp Area
A large throat/harp area of 8½” x 6″. This is a real advantage when quilting those big quilts.
It comes with a large extension table which is useful when quilting or working on large projects.
1,500 Stitches Per Minute
It’s fast. I always say to learn to sew confidently before speeding, but once you are confident, you may not be able to keep up with this puppy. This is also why I think the feature of Sewing Speed Control is essential with this machine.
Automatic Needle Threader
Definitely, a nice feature to have, although it is known to be a little tricky on this machine. I hope to get to the bottom of that and do a YouTube video showing you how to do it easily every time.
Presser Foot Pressure Adjustment
The Press Foot Pressure can be adjusted depending on what you are sewing, making sewing heavy-weight fabric or many layers such as quilts a breeze.
ACCESSORIES THAT COME WITH THE JUKI TL-2010Q:
- Standard Presser Foot (this is a scant ¼” quilting foot)

WHY JUKI JUNKIES?
So the simple answer is they blew me away with their customer service. I rang and asked all sorts of questions and they happily answered them all. These were my concerns and their response:
What if there’s a problem with my machine?
Before all TL models are sent to customers the machine is taken out of the box and checked. They thread the machine, the tension is tested and adjusted, and this means when the machine arrives to you it is all ready to go! By the way, you can request this service for any machine purchased with Juki Junkies.
What if the motor blows up in a month?
Contact Juki Junkies and they do all the warranty work for you. They contact Juki, they organize shipping and everything. Don’t worry you are going to be looked after!
But what if my motor blows up in a year’s time?
Juki Junkies will still do all the warranty work for you. You contact them and then they contact Juki, organize shipping, etc. You will be required to pay to have your machine shipped to be serviced, but this will be at the discounted rate that Juki Junkies has access to. If your machine is under warranty and the problem is NOT USER ERROR, Juki will often cover the costs to ship your machine back to you.
What if I have a question about how to do something?
Juki Junkies have so many ways to help you with any questions or help you may need with your Juki machine. Firstly, you can ring or email and they will troubleshoot with you. They also have a fantastic YouTube Channel which answers many questions you may have. They also have a very active Facebook Group which is basically a Juki support group.
I am so confident that Juki Junkies is the right company for me and you that I turned down the offer of a free (with conditions) machine from another business. Instead, I purchased my machine from Juki Junkies and we came up with the deal that anyone that uses the code LEE2022 will get some fun freebies, plus I make a small commission at no extra cost to you.
