    Brother RL417 Janome Memory Craft 9850 QCP Sewing & Embroidery Machine

    This MC9850 sewing and embroidery machine is quite simply fantastic. I have been blown away by the quality and ease of the embroidery function. My previous sewing machine was a Janome MC4800, so this is quite an update. I have no previous experience of machine embroidery but was able to set up and run some built-in embroidery designs straight away. I used Madeira embroidery threads and Madeira Bobbinfil, which are listed as thread choices for this machine. These threads produced a beautiful result. The instructions recommend using a straight stitch needle plate for embroidery, but this is an optional item that is not included. However, using the standard plate supplied did not appear to cause any issues, at least not on quilting cotton with cut away stabiliser. The machine is larger than my old one and feels substantial, yet it fits on a small desk. I can even leave the embroidery unit attached for normal sewing. I am looking forward to starting the Janome Artistic Digitizer software free trial shortly. Ordering online was straight forward and delivery was very speedy.

    Brother RL417 Novum Craft 590 Computerised Sewing Machine

    Perfect machine! Had to replace mine in a hurry and was torn between a few. This machine has all the stitches I required and the price was reasonable. I was not disappointed! Easy to use, professional stitching and the delivery was super fast. Very pleased overall.

    Brother RL417 Novum Craft 590 Computerised Sewing Machine

    Still trying to get to grips with all of the different things this machine can do. I was used to an industrial machine being a curtain maker. Up to now very pleased and can’t wait to try everything it can do. Should have ordered cottons at the same time because during lockdown I’m struggling to get hold of cottons. Can’t fault the delivery timescale as well.

    Brother RL417 Novum Craft 590 Computerised Sewing Machine

    I am thrilled with my new sewing machine. I was a bit hesitant at first buying a machine online, without being able to try it out first, but I did my research and this machine fitted the bill and at a fantastic price too. It does everything I need it to and I am having a great time exploring the new features that my old machine (over 30 years old) didn't have. Free and speedy delivery were an added bonus. Many thanks, great service.

    Brother RL417 Novum Craft 590 Computerised Sewing Machine

    I bought this for my wife who has damaged her foot and can’t use the foot pedal at the moment. I was looking for a cheep machine that she could use without the foot control and came across this machine. It turned out to be a great buy my wife is very pleased with it she is a very experienced machinist making clothes for herself and others. Her verdict is this little machine would be ideal for new and experienced users a little slow for her but she can still do her normal sewing. A great price and excellent delivery.

    Brother RL417 Novum Craft 590 Computerised Sewing Machine

    Amazing value for this wonderful machine. I bought this as an early Christmas gift for my daughter in law who is an avid seamstress. The Black Friday price was too good to miss. She loves it and can't stop raving about it's features. Years ago, my very first machine was a Novum. It seemed to go on for years with no problems. The only reason I sold it on was because I wanted more stitch choices. If this one performs as well as my original old one, I as the buyer, and my daughter in law as the owner, will be more than happy with our choice

    Brother RL417 Jaguar 492 Computerised Sewing Machine

    The machine was really good value as bought in Black Friday sale and came with really good free items. The bag is of really good quality. The machine is a good weight and should be quite stable in use. The machine has not been used as yet, it is a Christmas present for my 10 year old granddaughter. To be able to get a computerised machine for this price for her to use on her own is fantastic. She loves using my computerised machine but cannot be left with it alone as it was very expensive. Although not as many stitches as my machine the Jaguar has a really good looking selection. A good starter machine for any beginner. Well impressed as yet.

    Brother RL417 Novum Craft 590 Computerised Sewing Machine

    Bought as a gift for my step daughter. Arrived within a few days of ordering. Great deal on machine included quilting extension table. Instruction manual is straight forward and comprehensive. Also included in the kit was a walking foot and a plate to cover the feed dog for free motion embroidery My step daughter is thrilled with her machine, and has already made hats and practiced embroidery using the embroidery foot that came with the gift kit. Can't comment on durability yet but I have told my step daughter if she decides sewing is not her thing I would more than happily adopt her new machine.

    Brother RL417 Janome 2030DC Computerised Sewing Machine

    I love it, it’s so simple to use and it sews exquisitely. For the price, I’m surprised it has plenty of fancy features like the more expensive models such as the speed control, start/stop button and needle up/down. Also worth noting, the delivery was exceptionally quick and the advice I received from GUR was top notch.

    Brother RL417 Novum Life 157 Sewing Machine

    This was such a bargain and is amazingly useful and has been used more than I expected in just a few weeks of owning it. As a first time machine owner this is very easy to use with a simple dial to choose the stitch type you want which is shown making it easy. Winding the bobbins is easy.

    Brother RL417 Janome QXL605 Computerised Sewing Machine

    I actually rate this machine quite highly after having had other makes. However it was interesting to read of someone having problems with the bobbin case. I have since my purchase many years ago had to replace this part at least 6 times!!... I have never experienced a continuous problem such as this before.... so... am not a happy bunny!!... coukd this be a manufacturing fault??

    Brother RL417 Janome CXL301 Computerised Sewing Machine

    Just purchased this machine a week ago.

    Already made 2skirts. Really enjoy the solid feel to this machine, nice quiet action and very smooth running.

    Also just want to compliment the team at GUR. I called into the premises to get a first hand look. So very competent and friendly.

    The showroom is beautiful, and the sales team were very friendly and attentive, spending two hours demonstrating various machines. They were very knowledgeable and showed a real personal interest. As a side issue, I had to use the loo and the customer facilities were spotless. All in all a most positive experience.

    I will be looking for an overlooked soon and I know where I will be going to buy it!!!!

    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    The walking foot in the 3 Foot Quilting Set is not good – it leaves nasty tracks on the fabric, despite adjustments to the pressure dial on the sewing machine. I wanted to caution other customers about this. I won’t be able to use it – but I can use the other two feet in the set.

    14th April 2015 | Dorset | Jane Townson
    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    Brother RL417 Brother Innov-Is V7 Sewing & Embroidery Machine

    I bought an Innovis-is V7 a few months ago and so I think it is time to write a review. I bought it from GUR sewing machines because they had the most informative website and, when I telephoned, the salesman - Billy, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. This is a very expensive machine and I spent months trying to decide if I should buy it. Since I have had it, I use it every day. It is MUCH better than I expected. As a sewing machine, it is superb. I have the programable foot and so I can sew, reverse reinforce, cut the threads and lift the foot (with the knee lift) without taking my hands off the piece of work. It is like having another pair of hands. Whoever designed this machine understood sewing. The differential feed foot (like a turbo charged walking foot) is superb - i made a quilt which involved framing each sandwich with satin ribbon - sixty meters of satin ribbon to sew onto a quilt sandwich of batting and cotton. I was really worried about it but the machine made it easy. Being able to see the seam allowance with the laser guide is amazingly uselful. I am new to machine embroidery but was fed up with doing freehand embroidery which looked OK until I turned it over... The embroidery functions are very easy to use and the software is tremendous. I achieved excellent results the first time I used it. I learned some things the hard way - buy GOOD thread even if you feel a bit broke after buying the machine, measure twice and sew once, unpicking machine embroidery is an awful job, pay attention to hooping. This is a fantastic machine which seems to be able to do every task I set it. I am still learning but have had such delight from my results so far and GUR are only a phone call away

    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    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 sewing machine, GUR recommended the Janome 500, it’s literally the same machine 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.

    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    Bought this machine 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 machine. Thanks to GUR my life is also so much easier. ..no more stress from daughter who used to struggle with a machine which was less reliable and knotted threads.

    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    I was interested in buying a Janome 525s, but GUR advised me on the Janome 500 as it is basically the same machine, only exclusive to GUR and £50 cheaper. Why would anyone buy the 525s. Thanks GUR.

    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    The Janome 500 has been a delightful machine to use, I am not very good with sewing machines but this machine 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....

    Brother RL417 Janome GUR 500 Sewing Machine

    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.

    Brother RL417 Brother Innov-Is NV350SE

    Have generally bought my machines and accessories from another Sewing Machine retailer (mentioning no names). This is my first experience with GUR Sewing Machines and will be the first of many after receiving the best customer care I have ever experience from an online company. I wanted to purchase a machine to start quilting but did not want to over spend. After going through a few machines with me and taking the time to explain the differences I decided to opt for the Brother NV350SE Sewing Machine with Quilting Kit. The machine came the very next day with a load of free gifts. Could not be happier with my new Sewing Machine. I will be back soon to purchase an Embroidery Machine! Thank you GUR!!

    Brother RL417 Brother L14

    I was recommended this sewing machine by a seamstress for me to get back into sewing, but to be advanced enough not to outgrow too soon. I was useful on a sewing machine at school, its been a while but this machine is easy to set up and use, I was sewing again in no time. The DVD that came with it is really useful to get your started. The metal body of the machine means it is weighty enough not to be moving around whilst sewing. Very pleased.

    Brother RL417 Janome XL601 Computerised Sewing Machine

    I have just bought my machine from the store in Birmingham.The staff could not have been more helpful,as I am a total novice. They advised a good machine for me ,set it up in the shop ,gave me a demonstration and then got me to try it to see if I felt comfortable using it. They also supplied all the extra bits and pieces I should need to join my Quilting class,and I got a cup of tea. :-)

    Amazing! All I can say is to buy this machine, I can't stop using it, stitch quality is great and so much fun to use, I have tried other embroidery machines but they do not compare to this one. I love the fact this machine tells you how long each embroidery will take, how many stitches each pattern will take. Very cool machine and I recommend to everyone.
