Treasure Hunt

JUKI/ New English Quilter Stand at the 2013 Festival of Quilts
Finding the JUKI/New English Quilter stand at the Festival of Quilts is like looking for buried treasure! The new online guide to the Festival of Quilts is going to make it easier to find us.  There are lots of fun links to Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube and Blogger.

Franklins have sewing machine shops throughout the UK
We're listed under FRANKLINS Group Limited. Franklins are the UK Distributors for JUKI sewing machines. We at Machine Quilter have been sharing a stand at the Festival of Quilts ever since 2005 when we fell in love with the JUKI TL98 P sewing machine.

Dream Come True

NEW JUKI QVP 18 X 10 inch long arm

Three years ago we asked a question. How long would the arm be on your ideal dream machine? Follow the link and read the post.

Just about everyone said 18 inches!

 Last year JUKI introduced their NEW 18 X 10 inch long arm across the pond.  American quilters were giving it rave reviews so we shipped an American model across the Atlantic just for the 2013 Festival of Quilts.
