JUKI Haruka - TL-18QVP

Known as a workhorse, the Haruka TL-18QVP lives up to this standard as a single needle, lock-stitch, portable sewing machine, constructed of aluminum die-casting that ensures industrial-quality sewing.

Equipped with the same mechanism as JUKI's industrial machines, the TL-18QVP features a float foot function, great for a multitude of layers and thick seams perfect for fashion, handbag making, and piecing. If you're looking for precise seams, the TL-18QVP comes with a mounting base to attach gauges and binders. Want to try free-motion quilting? Drop the feed dogs and sew away! The sewing possibilities are endless.

Made to last, the TL-18QVP comes with additional features like presser foot up and down, thread trimming, and speed control. Additional accessories like the knee lift lever and extension table make the TL-18QVP is a perfect addition to any sewing space, offering easy control and a smooth ride.

As a reflection of JUKI’s Japanese heritage, the TL-18QVP was named Haruka meaning “beyond.” Go beyond expectation with Haruka!
