Star of the Show

Ikuko tries the new Juki QVP long arm while Emily smiles
I'd have to say that for us, the star of this year's Festival of Quilts show was the new JUKI QVP long arm.

Thursday was the opening day as JUKI QVP long arm machine
was demonstrated in Europe for the first time.
People trying it just couldn't help smiling.

This JUKI Long Arm is so very popular in America that Laurence Franklin, our JUKI distributor here in the UK, decided to bring it to the Festival of Quilts this summer.

JUKI business leaders from central Europe flew over to have a look and give it a try.

 We all did! It was hard to resist and even people who weren't quilters wanted to see what the JUKI QVP long arm would do.

We've been waiting a long time for JUKI to bring out a long arm sewing machine. This new JUKI QVP was worth the wait!
