Woo hoo....got the Juki today! Mr.Ruby bought me one for an early birthday present  and I sprung him trying to get it inside and hidden from me! So, it's sitting in its box, unopened under the sewing table for a few weeks....how good am I for self control!!!!!

Congratulations and happy sewing! 
A couple of years ago I splashed out on a very expensive Janome machine because the Juki dealer was too far away, and at that time you could not buy them online.  (You can now).  I instantly regretted buying the Janome.  (I still have it, but it has barely been used and I never bonded with it). 
About 9 months later I bought my longed for Juki machine, second hand from a TSF member, and it is my favourite machine, I absolutely love it!

Doesn't the 710 have the stitch regulator for free motion? I thought it would be ideal for quilting. Is one of your 99s in a cabinet? Some of the vintage machines are very underestimated, the 201 is still my favorite.

Either way, brand new is always exiting an let us know how it compares to your other machines.

Best of luck from me :- )

Juki's are fantastic machines, I had access to an industrial one in our sewing room at work and if I had to give up my Singer for any reason I'd go for a Juki to replace it any time.

Yes Arrow, the 710 does have a stitch regulator but I find I struggle even with the large harp space of the 710. I sometimes think that it is just too delicate a machine to munch a quilt through despite fiddling with presser foot pressure etc. Don't get me wrong...it's a nice machine, love it for piecing but can be temperamental. I want a workhorse and I don't need all the computerised stuff and stitches that the Bernina gives me.

No, the 99's aren't in cabinets and I don't think I would have the coordination to use the 127 in the treadle and "think" quilting at the same time! That would definately do my head in!

DOB.....sneaked a peak in the box last night after Mr.Ruby went to bed  :ninja: but won't open it until I've got this current quilt ready and sorted for quilting...am at a bit of a stale mate with it atm.

Thankyou everyone for your congrats. :)
