Hello, I have a different model Juki but it sounds to me that your safety clutch has been tripped. The safety clutch functions when an excessive load is applied to the hook or the other components during sewing. At this time, the hook will not rotate even if turning the handwheel. When the safety clutch has functioned, remove the cause and reset the safety clutch by pressing and holding the push button on the top surface of the machine bed, while strongly turning the handwheel in the reverse direction of rotation. The resetting procedure is completed when the handwheel clicks.
Things to think about are whether or not you want a walking foot machine. Then if you do, decide if you want a needle feed walking foot. (the needle moves in an ovoid fashion, to help pull the material through the feed area.
Juki is a wonderful manufacturer but there are quality machines out there that are just as nice. Check out leathermachineco.com and look at their cobra 18 or cobra 17. Call Steve and talk to him about what you are looking for. (great service)
Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.
