As a reflection of JUKI’ s Japanese heritage, the TL-18QVP was named Haruka meaning “beyond.” Go beyond expectation with Haruka!
Automatic Needle Threader
The automatic needle threader quickly and easily threads the needle without eyestrain, allowing you to change thread colors as often as you wish.
Sub Tension Unit
No matter the thread type, sub-tension ensures stitches are sewn with a balanced thread tension. Achieve Perfectly balanced threads with every stitch.
Presser Foot Pressure Adjustment
Turn the regulator on top of the machine to adjust the presser foot pressure according to the thickness of the fabric.
Sturdy Die-Cast Aluminum Frame
Machine body is made of a die-cast aluminum frame, minimizing vibration and noise. Professional performance is maintained by employing the same technology found in JUKI industrial sewing machines.
Vertical Full Rotary Hook
A vertical full rotary hook as in JUKI industrial sewing machines produces beautiful balanced and even stitching. Quiet smooth operation even at speeds up to 1,500 stitches per minute.
Attachment Mounting Plate
A separate attachment mounting plate for installing fabric guides and other attachments. This extends the life of the sewing machine, as it can now be replaced when the mounting holes become damaged.
LED Sewing Light Brightness Adjustment Switch
A switch in the needle area allows you to adjust the brightness of the light between high, medium, low and off. Adjust the brightness to make hard-to-see seams and stitching area easier to see.
Needle Up/Down and Slow Motion Switch
Each press of the needle up/down switch moves the needle halfway up or down. Hold the switch down to sew a slow single stitch ― useful when sewing corners and at the end of stitching.
The feed dog can be raised and lowered by moving the lever. Perform free-motion quilting and free-hand embroidery with ease.
Foot Controller with Thread Trimming Function
Automatically trim thread by pressing the controller with your heel.
Automatic thread trimming can be turned off by attaching a foot switch stopper.
Automatic Thread Trimmer
Perfectly trim the needle and bobbin threads with the simple push of a button. Industrial sewing machine technology provides exceptional durability, noise control and cutting. Sewing can continue after automatic cutting even if the bobbin thread is not visible above the throat plate.
Sewing Speed Control
The sewing speed can be set between 200 and 1,500 stitches per minute when using the foot controller.
Easy Bobbin Replacement
Bobbin replacement is a breeze even with the auxiliary table installed, thanks to a large bobbin case opening and a removable plate in the auxiliary table.
Open or close the bobbin case latch to allow the vertical bobbin case to be inserted into or removed from the machine with ease. This bobbin case also allows you to adjust the bobbin thread tension.
Knee Lifter Lever
The knee lifter lever allows you to lift/lower the presser foot without using your hands. The presser foot can be raised as high as 12 mm, making it easy to insert thick fabrics and large projects.
The slit in the thread take-up makes threading extremely easy.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this simple, little and STURDY machine. no muss or fuss- sews thru layers!!!!! of fabric! It's a gem!!!
I’m just in love with my new machine. It is just a power house, I’m so happy I made this purchase. I’m recommending my new Juki 18 to everyone.
Thank you, Doris Walsh
My Haruka is new and I have used it, but not a lot, so this review is based on limited knowledge. I had a seam to sew that was 4 layers of fabric and across 4 other layers (so 8 in total). One thing I liked was that I was able to use the MicroLift to raise the presser foot a little and the machine didn't hesitate at all going over that seam. On my older machine, I would have been tugging and pushing it through. That feature alone will be one I will use a lot in my quilting.
I have purchased several machines from this company. The sales and service folks have been very helpful. My machines have always been serviced quickly. Most recently my Juki needed repair. It was sent out and then could not be retrieved. I was given a new machine. You cannot get better than that.
I absolutely love this machine. The speed, the quietness of the motor. It is a dream to stitch on. Thank you so much for the quick shipping and for helping me correct my order. I am a happy camper!
