I like my Juki 98Q but it only does a straight stitch and I've been so fascinated with raw-edge applique lately that I wanted to be able to do a zigzag or blanket stitch. So here's my new Juki HZL-K65, only $299 from SewVacDirect (no tax, no shipping charge). It's not loaded with fancy stitches, but it has more than I need.
I got it set up in a jiffy. The threading is a little different than my other machine, but the owner's manual is very easy to follow. And I had a project ready for zigzagging! Haha, actually I have a few more too!
Looks like my DH will be heating up cans of soup for a while! He's a good sport.
