Rated 5 out of 5 by CSGFW Only wish I had bought years ago!
I have always wanted an overlocker since using an industrial one in my trade in the 1970-1980's. I ordered this on-line on saturday evening and it arrived the very first thing on monday morning, to my surprise as I expected it on thursday. Brilliant service, thank you JL. I have just got married and have bought this with vouchers and cash we were given for wedding gifts. I have tried the overlocker this evening on sample bits, so far looking very good. Am surprised how fast it is. I think I am going to love this machine and only wish I had bought one many years ago!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PippaMatt Machine broken on first outing
I bought this machine in November 2015 and was really looking forward to having the time to get to grips with it.
I bought the overlocker manual and a craftsy course on beginners overlocking. Today I finally started to play with the machine (having been too busy for nearly 3 months and made a drawstring bag and was just making a zipped bag, from my craftsy course - delighted with progress, when the machine stopped mid -sew and made a horrible grinding noise.
The machine is totally unusable and it sounds like the gears have slipped.mi am so disappointed. I only used it for a couple of hours and it looks completely ruined.
So frustrated and sad and a bit worried about the quality. Frustrated that I won't be able to do anything till I have a replacement.

I recently bought a new Janone sewing machine from JL - my old Singer having given up after about 40 years and when it came I decided to try some dressmaking. Booked myself some courses as I was feeling a little dissatsfied with my edging. I kept looking at the overlocker but was petrified of making an expensive mistake. I took the plunge and ordered it on Click and Collect, booked myself a course on Overlockers for the next afternoon. Picked it up literally just as I was about to start the class. It was so useful and I am glad I did - I have made a dress today and overlocked every seam. I even had to re-thread it all at one point as I caught one of the cottons. The tweezers that come with the machine are invaluable. I have used it alongside my new sewing machine. The big big bonus is that the foot pedal fits both machines so I can just move one over unplug and plug into the one I need to use. Fantastic purchase. I am new to dressmaking so if I can do it anyone can. I also purchased the Overlocker Manual and I can honestly say that if you can go on a class (2 hours I had) beforehand it would be worthwhile but not essential.

I am absolutely delighted with my new overlocker. It saves time and gives a professional finish. It is very good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dawnfoghorn Just what i wanted.
This is a good machine, Have used it now for a few weeks and have had no problems with it. Price was fair for the quality of the product and it matches the make of my sewing machine as well, Look good together out on my work station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Woollenwoman Professional finish for home sewers
Arrived the day after I ordered it, excellent service from JL as always. More straightforward to use than I expected, thanks to the accompanying DVD which gives clear instructions. I had previously held back from buying an overlocker, thinking It might be an unnecessary luxury, but now I'm wishing I had bought this ages ago. It can take home dressmaking to a whole different level.

It took me weeks of deciding to finally end up with this overlocker and i am so glad i chose to spend the extra £30 vs other models I saw. easy to thread & use. I am a freelance seamstress and use it everyday happily and easily. great purchase!

This is my first overlocker and I bought it not long after buying my first sewing machine - the Janome 7025. It is AMAZING! It came ready-threaded which means the daunting bit is done for you! I haven't yet read the instructions and I have used it a few times already. The front part opens up at both sides for "easy threading" although I am yet to thread the machine. The only gripe I would have is that I wish it came with a protective cover like the Janome 7025 because then it would be easier to transport and less delicate.
