The key differences between this model and the HZL-DX7 are:
- The DX5 has 185 stitches, the DX7 has 287;
- The DX5 has 3 font stitches, the DX7 has 4;
- The DX5 includes 1 LED light above the needle, the DX7 has this one and an extra under the arm of the machine;
- The DX7 includes 2 additional feet (the open toe presser foot (O) + the edge sewing presser foot (R); and
- The DX7 includes the quilting extension table as standard, but with the DX5, it needs to be purchased separately.
If you quilt or create anything that requires the additional decorative stitches, the HZL-DX7 may be the perfect machine for you!

Questions: Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions at all.
I know investing in a new machine is a big decision and you'll want to gather as much information as possible before being able to make a choice on the right machine.
I own the HZL-DX5 as my personal machine which I purchased before becoming a dealer. If you'd like a fellow sewists opinion on this machine and why it was my choice when upgrading at the end of 2020, please know you're welcome to ask me anything.
Everyone has different needs with their sewing machinery, let's see if a JUKI is the right fit for you!
