Bought this item for my daughter who had been at college doing an HNC In Fashion and now heading off to do a Degree in Fashion/ Textiles. She absolutely loves sewing with th easy to use yet versatile item. Thanks to GUR my life is also so much easier. ..no more stress from daughter who used to struggle with a item which was less reliable and knotted threads.
I have had the Janome CC500 for 3 weeks and love it, so far it has coped with every bit of sewing i needed to finish. The needle threader is a must and will be lost without it.
I was in need of a new item and GUR advised me on the CC500. The item arrived the next day and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Could not be more happy.
The Janome 500 has been a delightful item to use, I am not very good with products but this item is so easy to use. So far it has coped with fabrics like lycra, jeans and velvet all without messing around with tensions. My 12 year daughter has even taken to it....
I was interested in buying a Janome 525s, but GUR advised me on the Janome 500 as it is basically the same item, only exclusive to GUR and £50 cheaper. Why would anyone buy the 525s. Thanks GUR.
Originally I was only interested in purchasing the Janome 525S as it has been on the sewing bee and looks like it’s a really good item, GUR recommended the Janome 500, it’s literally the same item except it’s a different colour and is even cheaper. It arrived the day after I ordered it and I haven’t put it down since, many thanks GUR for your helpful service and speedy delivery.
Originally I was only interested in purchasing the Janome 525S as it has been on the sewing bee and looks like it’s a really good item, I was then recommended the Janome 500 by a friend, it’s literally the same item except it’s a different colour and is even cheaper. It arrived the day after I ordered it and I haven’t put it down since, many thanks GUR for your helpful service and speedy delivery.
This item is packed with really useful features, like auto threader, 50 stitches, can be used with foot or without foot. Lovely! It is very smooth on thick fabric as well. Only i don't like that its pressor foot is not of metal it looks cheap but you can buy metal presser foot. other then that it is lovely handy item.
I bought this item from GUR as a treat to myself. I'm quite surprised with how this item handles and the free gift is unbelievable.
First, I must state how EXCELLENT GUR Sewing have been over this purchase. Our needs were slightly unusual in that my wife is Canadian and we needed a dual voltage item. However, there are very few on the market, yet Steven was able to advise us which were the best items. And, having spoken to Steven on 4 separate occasions over the last month about which might be a good item to buy (noting that it is a considerable investment and this is the first item that my wife has ever owned as she is new to sewing), on every occasion Steven was polite, patient and extremely helpful. We ordered the Opal 690Q for my wife and Steven went out of his way to ensure it arrived for her birthday. And, as a surprise, he threw in a very generous amount of extras which really made her day. STERLING SERVICE - thank you!! The Opal 690Q is a brand new, very well designed and thought out item. My wife spent all weeking sewing with it to make a bag for Mother's Day and the quality of the stitching is first rate. The computer side is easy to use...but with lots of flexibiltiy for creation and the automatic thread cutter is a real advantage. And, the Sensor foot, a feature found on much more expensive Husqvarna products is really excellent. My wife could not be happier!! Overall, a very big thank you to Steven and his team - I could not fault the freindly, helpful and efficient service; it was the best I have received from any retailer including John Lewis in a very long while. Well done!!
