Fast, fun and so easy to love! The HZL-K65 weighs in at just 15.6 lbs. Sews at speeds faster than many full size sewing machines. And - because it's a Juki, the K-65 sews smoothly, quietly with superior stitch quality!

I used to own a Juki Industrial sewing machine and liked it a lot except for the fact that it only had one stitch (straight stitch). I bought the HZL-K65 because I was in the market for a good basic home use sewing machine with features like zig zag stitch and buttonholes. There is a dearth of online reviews for the Juki HZL-K65 so I took a took a chance because I knew the brand name and at just over three hundred dollars, the price was good. I've had the machine for about a week now and have set it up and tested it pretty extensively. I will update my review in a few months if anything changes. Hopefully this review will help someone else make a decision.
The HZL-K65 is a "household"/home-use model, so you don't get the speed of a pricier industrial machine. I have it set on the highest speed but it still feels a bit slow to me as compared to the industrial machine. Speed is relative and this is probably a non-issue for home sewers. On the plus side, because the HZL-K65 is...
If you're looking for a basic sewing machine that is 1) well constructed, 2) a workhorse and 3) quiet operation, this is the sewing machine. I purchased mine locally instead of Amazon to include a maintenance and instruction contract. Juki has been a well known brand of sewing machine found in factories and now have brought that performance quality to their home sewing machine line. The first thing that amazed me was how quiet this machine ran. You can also operate it without a floor pedal...the needle threader is brilliant and the thread cutter is on the left side of the machine (for the reviewer who said there was none). I saw this machine demonstrated to me at the local sewing shop, and it can tackle thick fabric such as 2-3 layers of denim...now I'm not sure about leather or upholstery fabric (I wouldn't recommend this machine for that, it would only make sense to buy a heavier duty factory grade machine for upholstery work). This sewing shop even recommended this machine over the...
This is my first sewing machine so I don't know much since I am a beginner but this is what I think and feel. This machine is a good basic machine. It does the basic stitches, blind hem, overcast and a couple decorative/satin/buttonholes/etc... I like the quick select buttons. Lighting is adequate. I was able to use a twin needle effectively. The extra spool hooks onto the bobbin winder for the second thread. After using this machine for a while and learning new things along the way I feel I will buy another machine with more features. I noticed my fabric slips a lot when I'm sewing along a seam causing uneven seams and edges. This may be the norm for sewing machines but it does this all the time when I'm sewing my seams and I go on the slowest speed to try and reduce that but it still happens everytime. The machine vibrates a lot when it's on its highest speed. I don't know if the table matters. I sit it on one of those large folding tables made of durable, thick plastic and metal...
