Sewing Machines / Which one
« on: September 12, 2021, 22:09:02 PM »
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.

I'm trying to make small easy things that I can sell. I bought myself straws so I can leave them in the car to use when we get kfc or McDonald's I really hate the paper straws. I wanted to make little pouches to store them in.
So I tried one off YouTube but didn't like it and it ended up too small, I should have waited for the straws to come.  :facepalm:
