Our customers like the smooth running of the Juki UX8. It feels right, they say. With the mighty Juki company behind it, we know the build quality is sound. So, the Juki HZL-UX8 long arm sewing machine is one to trust and rely on. It offers twelve inches (305mm) of work space, from needle to neck. And there’s a seven inch colour touch screen, which is simple to use.
Other electronic features include speed control, bobbin thread alert and scissors, to name a few. And for anyone concerned that a sewing machine with electronic features is bound to break down – think again. The modern electronics built into the major sewing machine brands are very reliable.
Use the Juki HZL-UX8 for small delicate projects, for large quilt and patchwork projects. And buy it to treat yourself and impress your friends…
