Automatic Thread Trimmer
The machine is equipped with an automatic thread button that simultaneously trims the needle and bobbin threads at the sewing end by lightly pressing the push-button. Both the trim button and the foot controller engage the advanced Juki industrial style thread trimming mechanism.
Thread Tension Scale
The machine also has the thread tension scale, which allows you to adjust the tension according to the thread and material to be used.
Maximum Speed Control
The new speed control lever gives you complete control over sewing speed. Set the speed from 200 to 1500 stitches per minute, or any speed in between for free motion, and precision sewing.
Materials are sewn with Ease
The microcomputer controlled, speed control mechanism, allows the machine to sew materials at low speeds. This provides for accurate feed and perfect stitching when sewing heavyweight fabric, quilting, and multiple layers of materials.
Presser Foot Pressure Adjustment
Presser foot pressure can be adjusted according to the fabric being sewn by turning a regulator located on the top of the machine.
Needle Up/Down Control
When you stop sewing, the machine will stop with the needle in the down position to allow for pivoting or more accurate free motion work. To move the needle up or down as desired, simply press the needle up/down button.
The bright-white LED lighting, provides an illuminated view of the sewing area and allows for more precise sewing.

Juki's rich tradition in quilting continues with the TL-2020 PE. The feed dog can be raised and lowered simply by depressing a switch. When quilting, the drop feed allows you to sew curved stitches with precision and ease.
Juki 1/4 Inch and 1/5 Inch Quilting Feet
The quilting feet are designed for free motion quilting and free-hand embroidery. Just lower the feed dogs and stitch away.

I bought this after seeing a blogger review it - she sews clothing and home decor, and noted that this machine was great for apparel, not just quilting. I have really enjoyed it so far. The stitches are even and accurate, speed is easy to control (and can go fast if desired), and it sews through many different types of fabric well. Very simple to set up, thread, maintain. It's next test will be a silk dress! It's a great addition to my array of machines (an old but reliable Singer serger, Juki coverstitch, and Pfaff sewing machine.)
