Wow that means business. I've had a go with one of these and was most surprised that it didn't run away with me.  I suppose now you will be sewing 24/7 for the next 5 years :laughing:

Yeah I love the spec of the du-1181n but I don't know if I would get much use out of it.

Hey all,
I have been saving to buy an industrial sewing machine.
I have narrowed it down to two, I was wondering does anyone here a have either of them and can help me choose.
They are the juki ddl 8700 heavy duty  and the juki – du-1181n.
Now I wanted one that would sew through leatherette and would be good for light fabric also,and I'm hoping it will be good for quilting too.

You crochet the first one then add chains on and continue once you have 4 long strands, then join the for tabs together. You then braid it and join them together.

the peach one was the first i made i didn't like it until i made the second one and realised i didn't read the pattern right about putting little stitches in to hold the braids together. The first one i done to tight.
