Features of HZL-G220 Sewing Machine
First of the many long-arm sewing machines from Juki, the HZL-G220 has a number of advanced features that make it a successful model. Continue reading to find out what they are.
The machine uses box feed industrial sewing technology. Typically, the feed moves in an oval shape. But by using a box-feed mechanism, this sewing machine can reduce the chances of your fabric shifting or shrinking. It gives you complete control over the movement of the cloth and also guarantees even stitch patterns.
No Fabric Shrinkage
It is not just about the box feed. The HZL-G200 also has a presser foot that is far more advanced than the previous models. This adds to the power of the feeding system allowing you to stitch all kinds of fabric comfortably.
Wide Sewing Space
The HZL-G220 has a wider underarm space when compared with other models. This makes it easier to maneuver larger projects or multiple layers of fabric.
With its fully automated mechanism, threading the machine has never been easier. Whether you are preparing the bobbin or threading the needle, the machine can do it for you with the press of a single button.
The bright LCD screen on the machine is one of its best features. It is a backlit display that keeps track of all the features you have selected for a project. You can adjust the thread cutter system, the stitch pattern you have selected, the length of the stitch and such by pressing the controls below the LCD. All your choices will be reflected on the screen for you to refer to easily.
