Filled with sought-out features that beginners and advanced sewists will appreciate, like our JUKI Box Feed that moves your fabric for you, the floating button to prevent uneven seams, and comes with an assortment of presser feet that will help them bring their projects to life.

The Creative Set offers sewists a set of presser feet perfect for embellishing and adding decorative touches to their designs. This set includes pieces like the Applique Presser Foot, Cording and Embroidery Presser Foot, Pearl Attaching Presser Foot, Cording Presser Foot (for 3 Cords), Presser Foot with Guide, and Open Toe Presser Foot!
For Your Favorite Fashion Designer
Have a fashion designer in your life? Check out the Sayaka DX-3000QVP for their holiday gift! When creating fashion, designers are always ready to get creative and add personal touches to their work. With a machine like the DX-3000QVP, creators now have access to 351 stitch patterns, including beloved zigzags, 20 professional buttonholes, and four lettering fonts! They can bring their ideas to life with options like that while adding those personal touches they love.
The DX also offers a large workspace with a 12″ throat space for creating large projects like dresses, pants, and more. They’ll also enjoy a color touch panel where ease of use helps them change settings such as thread tension, presser foot pressure, pivot function, drop feed system, and automatic thread trimming with one touch. Add in free motion quilting, an Interchangeable Straight Stitch Feed System, and JUKI Smart Feed, and beginner and advanced sewists alike will love what they can create.
For sewists who have been dreaming of a serger, the MCS-1700QVP is the best of both worlds! Offering both coverstitch and chain stitch, this 3- and the the 4-thread machine is perfect for creating numerous projects like blouses, dresses, swimming suits, and athletic wear, thanks to how easy it is to work on stretch fabrics! In addition, strong chain stitch sections like waist seams and pants side seams become sturdier and cleaner.
If you’re looking to help them upgrade their sewing kit, we recommend our Invisible Zipper Foot and Double Fold Bias Binder! The Invisible Zipper Foot for the DX Series is perfect for adding that professional touch to their fashion pieces, where dresses, jackets, and even bags can now have a cleaner look. The Double Fold Bias Binder, created for the MCS machine series, can help fashion creators easily make straps for their camisole pieces or automatically fold the fabric to bind the garment edges for details like a neckline.
For the Quilters in Your Life
Quilters are always looking for more space to create! With the Miyabi J-350QVP, you can help them create a workspace that measures from 5 feet to 12 feet, where they can easily create quilts up to king size. In addition, this quilting machine offers features like our built-in JUKI SmartStitch titch regulator system, where quilters can produce accurate, precise stitching at any speed, helping them create beautiful designs and art. In addition, you can add Quilter’s Creative Touch 5 (QCT5) which allows you to easily design, lay out your quilt projects, and leave the machine to do the stitching for you!
If your loved one doesn’t have the space for a stand-up machine like the Miyabi J-350QVP, we recommend checking out the J-150QVP! The J-150QVP is the best of both worlds as it offers the space and free motion feature needed for quilting while also being a straight stitch machine that can help them complete their quilt in one space. Furthermore, with its digital screen, it is easy to change settings, the tension, speed, box feed system, lock/backstitch count, and more!
Finally, if your quilter already has their holy grail machine, check out JUKI’s newest quilting accessory! Our Free Motion Quilting Rings come in two sizes, 8″ and 11″, and offer creators the chance to add beautiful stitching with improved guidance by providing no-slip bottoms and using durable high-density polyurethane (HDPE) construction. Quilters tired of moving their quilt around as they add free motion quilting will love the ease of using this accessory the next time they’re creating!
For the Bag Creators
Finally, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the bag creators in your life, look no further than the Haruka TL-18QVP! This single-needle, lock-stitch, portable sewing machine is built with industrial-quality sewing, helping creators with large projects create peace. No more fighting with the sewing machine because of heavy or thick material! This machine is equipped with our industrial mechanisms and features a float foot function that is great for many layers and thick seams that handbag-making needs.
Other features sewist will love about this machine is the brightness adjustment of the light and the drop feed for adding embroidery or free-motion quilting. In addition, this sub-tension unit ensures stitches are sewn with balanced thread tension and an automatic needle threader and thread trimmer!
If your bag creator has already found their perfect machine, help them upgrade their sewing kit with the Professional Attachment Set for the TL Series! This set of 3 presser feet and gauge is ideal for bag creators because it allows them to use more sewing techniques like working with leather and vinyl, attaching decorative piping and zippers, and working with a fixed seam allowance. The Hinged Zipper Foot is perfect for those narrow zippers they want to attach to your bag. A smooth foot will help them create using fabrics like vinyl and leather. The piping foot will help them easily create and attach pipping to their bags. Lastly, the swing gauge is used as a guide for the edge of the fabric when sewing with a fixed seam allowance.
