When it comes to sewing quilts, having the right machine to work with is paramount to get beautiful, professional results. One of the best specialized quilting machines is the Juki TL2000Qi, which is consistently touted as one of the best quilting machines out on the market today.
The TL-2000Qi creates beautiful results with even stitches and no stitches are ever missed. One of the best things about this machine is that is works like a top range machine yet is priced in the middle of similarly-functioning machines.
So there is no confusion, this is not typically regard as a beginner's machine. The good news is that it makes up for its learning curve with the features it packs in and the results it brings.
The Juki TL2000Qi has auto needle controls to put the needle up or down, making it easier to turn corners or end stitching seams; you can also control the needle manually.
The needle can be threaded automatically and there is also an automatic way to cut your thread that is a step above others that are offered. Thread trimming can be done on the foot pedal by pressing your heal. It can also be done with a thread trimming button. The Juki TL2000Qi is a lockstitch machine so there is only one needle and one stitch. Stitch length can be controlled, making it possible to work with layered materials and different fabric weights.
Powerful LED lighting makes it possible for you to see your project clearly to the finest detail, which is great since the wide throat space of the machine gives you a big working area. There is also an extension table if you need a larger space.
"The Juki TL2000Qi has a knee-lift lever to let you raise and lower the presser foot hands free for ease of use. It also has a drop feed, making it possible for you to work with curves and delicate fabrics.

Presser foot pressure can be adjusted according to the fabric being sewn by turning a regulator located on the top of the machine.

I bought this machine along with a different brand last May which is when I started quilting; this one is in my second home where we spend about one or two long weekends a month. When I compare the other machine I bought, this one is a dream. I have to agree that I cannot use the automatic needle threader either, but I can't use it on the first machine I bought either. However, this one runs a nice straight seam, has plenty of room for the quilt in the throat area and has been easy to use. I do oil it each time I use it since it is usually once or twice a month that we are there, but I have not had issues with breaking needles or missed stitches, nesting, tension or other issues that I have had with the first machine.
I had a straight stitch machine by another brand and loved it, but heard so many good things about Juki that I decided to get this machine too. At the time I bought it, I didn't realize there were other nearly identical Juki's. This Juki is the Qi, and is less money than the "Q" because it comes with fewer feet and one less threading tension disk, which I guess I didn't realize when I decided to buy this one. But my other brand machine only had the one tension disk anyhow, so I was used to that. I didn't really need the extra feet the more expensive one came with either, so I think I made the right choice and saved $350 over the same machine with those extras.
The Juki sews through thick layers and fast! Great to bag making and piecing quilts and quilting too. I have no problem quilting with the walking foot, but for some reason whenever I try to free motion quilt and use a matching thread on the back and a different color on the front, the bobbin thread always shows through. I have adjusted it and tried everything and the same problem. So I am sticking to quilting with a walking foot on this machine only. Maybe after I take it in for servicing, the tech might fix that?
I did buy the 1/4" foot with the guide that is made for this Juki and love that foot! That is all I needed to buy extra (besides some bobbins). This is a high shank machine, so I already had high shank presser feet from my other machine that work on this one too.
I love how the thread cuts by pressing down on your heel on the foot petal or pushing the button. The needle threader is a bit tricky to get the hang of, so find how to thread this machine on a YouTube video, because the instructions are not clear in the manual for it. Other than that, this is a simple to use and maintain machine and I will enjoy sewing on it for years to come.
It is a great machine! The quality is immediately obvious the first stitch you make. I purchased it for my wife and she couldn't be happier, after years of using lower priced sewing machines. It is well worth the price. Just watch all the videos you can find about it so you can properly thread it and use the features.
The auto-cut feature is a huge plus. And I'm amaze how it picks up the bobbin thread again once you resume sewing after cutting.
I finally received my Juki and I am in love!
