Whoopee!  I am now the proud owner of a Juki TL-98P!  I have been looking for one of these second hand for ages, and only saw one, ludicrously priced!  This one I purchased from good old 'Sewing machine Steve'  from King's Lynn.  Its everything I hoped it would be and more.  I had a good try of a (newer) version at the Quilting Show at Duxford and decided that it was the type for me.........I love the quality of it, its seriously heavy feet and ability to sew at lightning speed!

I loved the attachments that came with my seriously old Singer, hated the ones that came with the Pfaff, but these are in a class of their own...

One happy bunny tonight!!
Vintage machine lover, Singer 201K, 99K, 401G, Singer 780 Touch and Sew, Juki TL-98p... another bargain which I am delighted with.  Have recently been gifted a really sweet Singer 27K in a 'Coffin box' from 1886 which sews beautifully.  Now the proud owner of a Bernina 1260.

Being a bit nosy I went looking and found a video showing insertion of an invisible zip, the foot used was so different and made it look so easy.  These Juki's are getting quite a reputation for perfection.  Enjoy, I bet the stitch is perfect.
