Juki DNU 1541 Review

​One of the most high quality (and expensive) sewing machines is the Juki DNU 1541. It is truly a magnificent piece of equipment that deserves the highest of remarks. Today, we will be going over the Juki DNU and all of its features. Afterwards, hopefully you will have a better understanding of why it is the choice sewing machine for anyone serious about sewing.

​It would be hard to find another machine as popular as the Juki DNU 1541S. Both bagmaking and upholstery would be different without this piece of equipment. 

​Key Components

​Large Bobbin

​The biggest part of making bags and upholstery is the type of material that you use. Having a large bobbin makes this process all that much easier. Working with heavier materials is one of the major features of the Juki DNU 1541.​​​​​

​Adjustable Feet Lift

​​​​​​​Many other high-end sewing machines lack the ability to adjust the feet lift. This can cause some discomfort and non-ideal results for most people. Luckily, the Juki DNU 1541S is capable of adjusting the feet lift.

The height of the lift is also much higher than other machines. This will allow for you to have more control when working with uneven materials.​​​

​Informative Instruction Manual

​Though instruction manuals are typically included with every type of sewing machine, the manual that comes included with the Juki DNU 1541 is exceptionally well documented. It has a full parts list so that you know exactly what you have and what it is in case something goes wrong. Many other manuals simply lack the proper terminology to help novice and even intermediate sewers understand.

Luckily, that is not the case with the Juki DNU 1541. ​​​​​

​High Speed Sewing

​If you have ever sewed before, you may be used to an average of 800 SPM (stitches per minute). Well, the Juki DNU 1541 is capable of hitting up to 3000 stitches per minute. That is over 3 times as fast as the average sewing machine. Professional sewers will find this immense sewing speed to be of great use.

​Reverse Feed System

​A professional sewing machine is incomplete if it does not have an automatic reverse feed system. Being able to go back over your seams and secure them is very important for upper-level sewing. With a suspended ruler attached, you can also shift the button upward so that you are not interrupted. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​So, can the Juki DNU 1541 actually perform? It can go far beyond that. The quality produced by this machine is truly exceptional. It is very reliaable and can easily get through heavy materials with its fast sewing speed. The needlebar stroke is larger and coupled with the high pressor foot light and double tension mechanism, you will be impressed by the responsiveness of the machine. There is very little that you cannot do with this machine.

​Even in the event of you changing your material thickness, the vertical  movement ratio on your presser foot does not need to be changed. This allows for you to stay consistent with your sewing and hone your skills. In addition, you never have to worry about your needles fraying again thanks to this.

Let's not forget the fully assembled table and motor that comes included with the package. You can get started as soon as your machine arrives. With the servo motor, you do not have to worry about it making that much noise. You can also opt to upgrade to the speed adjustable servo motor to improve your control over the machine and your sewing speed.


​High-end sewing machines are rare but they exist. For the average sewer, you may not have heard of the Juki DNU, but, it really does offer a lot in terms of functionality. For the price, you will not be disappointed at the productivity of this sewing machine.


​The value of this product is found in its stitching speed and overall design. Everything from the base to the outer material is well constructed and built to withstand. Not only that, but it can handle some of the thickest material you can think of. With plenty of features to help you with sewing many different things, the value is definitely there with this sewing machine.


​​​​​​​​​Of course with a price tag as high as this one, it can easily be seen as a con. However, you always get what you pay for and the quality of the machine is definitely reflective of the price.


​Many of the features you see in standard sewing machines are seen in this high end machine. Some of the differences come in its stitching speed and unique reverse ​feed system. Any professional will find great use in the Juki DNU 1541.
