    I am so glad this is happening. Do you have plan for any other classes around the country? I am in the Denver area. While the dealer I bought this from are very nice, they aren’t very knowledgeable about this machine. What little I’ve learned has been trial and error on my part and very lacking online videos. Please come here or near by.
    As you can tell by earlier posts there is a great need for this.

    I couldn’t make this class due to not enough time to request off from work, can’t wait to see when the next one is scheduled, because I will be there! Any idea of when you will be putting together the schedule?


  3. Tiffany says:

    Agreed… Need more time/notice to schedule travel/time for classes….. How about the Houston area…bought my sit down machine 2 years ago…and still don’t really know how to use it… No instruction/classes here in the Houston Texas area…really???? Soooo sad


    1. Tiffany, We had a class last fall in San Antonio. Will be setting up more classes for the year. Stay Tuned.

      I’m here in the Philly area with my sit-down long-arm that has tension issues. No repair person to come to house. Too heavy to move. Really need a class to help me learn more about this machine that I was so excited about !!


      1. Are you using a TOWA guage to set your bobbin case tension? What threads are you running?


      2. Mary says:

        You asked about the TOWA gauge and my threads. I am not home this week so can’t check thread. I don’t know what that gauge is. Thanks for trying. I bought machine from you at QuiltCon Savannah and really haven’t mastered it yet. Big sigh. (I’m near Philly)


      3. Mary,
        email me at and I will get you in contact with the dealer. He has TOWA gauges and a great staff. We will get you going.

      I agree. I bought my sit down Juki 2200 QVP from a local dealer and no support.
      I really would like to see training classes in areas that I can afford to go.
      I joined a facebook group for this machine and all I see are problems that people have.
      especially the long arm. My local dealer doesn’t sell this machine anymore and doesn’t have any one trained to service it. Boy and I disappointed.


      1. Where do you live, I can check to see where you next closest dealer would be.
        I understand the facebook group talks about a lot of problems but they themselves will say they do a lot of trouble shooting so you see more problems than praise.


  4. Linda Deen says:

    I was so excited to see this. I have had my sit down for about 3 years now. My local dealer did not support me with service or training. I can’t make the Arlington Il class but hope to see more scheduled in my area. I live in Arkansas. Little Rock would be good to plan a class.


    1. Hi Linda, we will schedule more. We do try to work in cities that are larger and central to customers so people can attend from around the country.

    I had The opportunity to meet Dena at the Mancuso Quilt Show in Orlando. She knows the Juki machines and is amazing. She saw that I was watching her checking something and she explained what she was doing while she did it. You can tell she enjoys teaching but it feels more like sharing her knowledge. Super sweet lady and I felt so relaxed around her and I learned so much. I definitely recommend taking any classes/lessons with her. You won’t be disappointed.

    1. We will do our best to book a couple more of these this year but currently no plans for Denver area


  7. Do you have any plans to offer this training in Philadelphia?


    1. We will schedule a couple more of these for this year but currently no plans for the Philadelphia area
