Review for: Janome HD2200 Sewing and Quilting Machine

This sturdy sewing machine is my 2nd one. It sews through thick layers of fabric, but handles the sheer fabrics with ease. I like it has a great array of stitches and a one step buttonhole facility.Would recommend this machine if you are a heavy user, I use mine 6 days a week

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Was perusing machines for a friend getting back into sewing & came across the Jaguar DQS 405 & it was on offer (ex demo) at an excellent price. Husband bought it for me as when I bought my last machine, it was buy what's left due to the pandemic. It started me on my sewing journey, but, after using a computerised machine at a sewing class I was hankering after one. I am not disappointed. What a super machine. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get my head around the instructions, but, after playing around with the machine over a couple of sessions I've now sussed it. I don't know why I was worried. I just love everything about the machine, but, I especially love how you can control the speed compared to my mechanical machine.....I can be a bit heavy footed …

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

I've had this machine for over six months now and I'm very pleased with it. It's easy to use and threading isn't difficult, especially with the way the machine opens up. I would recommend using the thread tension settings as a starting point and experimenting with your fabric/thread combination. I usually always find that my looper tension needs to be higher. I haven't made much use of the differential feed yet but am confident enough now to use it to make a t-shirt without sewing first, and the results have been impressive. Highly recommended.

Review for: Jaguar DQS 377 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Nice easy machine to use, smooth action. Tried the button hole function and it did miss a couple of stitches, also the automatic threading is a little fiddly which kind of defeats the object. However, on the whole a good machine for the money.

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

just started to use my sewing machine Jaguar DQS405 it is so quiet just purrs forgive the pun ,also the needle threader is a life saver for me, my failing eye sight and shaking hands were making sewing very difficult but not anymore. A great machine and great company, would recommend.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

I am a very experienced seamstress and finally made the decision to purchase an overlocker. I bought the Jaguar overlocker because a friend had previously bought one and was extremely pleased. I ordered it one day and it arrived for breakfast the next day so it was super fast. The DVD was useful as a guide to rethreading. The doors on this machine open right out so it isn't at all fiddly to thread up. You can see exactly what you are doing. I had rethreaded and was using it by the afternoon it was delivered. I would consider it an entry level machine and the extra feet that are supplied will be very useful.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

The overlocker is brilliant, stitches are very even, threading the overlocker is the best I’ve done very easy, no flimsy sections to worry about, great value for money. The cottons are very good. The bag is great it fits my sewing machine and overlocker.

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

I baught this machine because my other overlocker had broken and was beyond repair. I have to say, I was a bit weary at first but I needn't have worried. This is a lovely very well built and very quiet machine. I also love the fact that there is storage for needles, converter and cleaning brush to name a few, in the front cover. I can honestly say that up to now I love this machine.

Review for: Janome HD9 Professional Sewing and Quilting Machine

I am so pleased with the quality of the Janome HD9, it is so sturdy, solid, fast, easy to use and goes through thick seams like you'd expect from a HD machine. I like the separate bobin motor and it means that you don't have to unthread your machine to wind the bobin, it's set up with it's own thread holder. This machine only does straight stitch, no zig-zag, button holes etc etc but it is built to just sew, sew, sew! It is a heavy machine but I'm getting used to that, I think it would be best though, set up on a table or similar and left with it's cover over rather than having to lift and carry every time you want to sew but of course the weight of the machine is also a plus as it won't move about when you drag heavy fabric, leather or other materials …

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

I am totally new to owning an over locker, and was worried whether I would get on with one but I can honestly say my new Jaguar 488 is my new best sewing friend. It comes already threaded so you can have a play straight from in boxing, but it's so easy to thread I managed to change threads first time. The machine is a pleasure to use, easy to control, stable and does not make a huge amount of noise. I initially was undecided between the 488 and 489, but decided the additions of 2 thread, a waste tray and a thread cutter were not necessary for me. I am delighted with my machine. Was also grateful for the phone advice I received pre purchase. All round would highly recommend this machine and GUR.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

I’ve never used an overlocker before and it has transformed my sewing experience! I wasn’t sure what to buy but the guys at GUR were superb and steered me to the best machine for me. It’s so easy to use - threading is a doddle and the machine runs like a dream. I won’t bother shopping around anymore when it comes to sewing equipment and accessories as the service from GUR is fantastic so much so I treated myself to new sewing machine from them too 😊

By Mrs Tracie Sperrin on 11th July 2021
Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

After researching overlocker I was so confused. I contacted GUR and they were able to offer advice and made recommendations. I placed an order for the Jaguar Novum 488 overlocker. The transaction was easy and straight forward. The order was placed around 2.30pm and by 10.00 am the next day it had been delivered. Now that's service. I haven't used it yet but am looking forward to it. It came pre threaded which is a big help. I would highly recommend GUR.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

I bought the Jaguar Novum Supa for my wife who started sewing during the lockdown. As she had never used an overlock machine I was looking for a model that was easy to use. After contacting GUR for some recommendations we chose the 488 model. The overlock arrived the next day to my wife's delight. She has been using it ever since and found it easy to set up and use. It comes already threaded which makes the spool change much easier when following the instruction manual. Great overlocker and excellent customer service from GUR.

By Louise Hughes on 29th June 2021
Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

Ordered on Sunday afternoon, it was here when I got home from work today (Tuesday).

Incredibly easy to set up. I played around with the tensions, stitch width and differential feeds to see how they would affect the stitch.

Really useful having it ready threaded with different colours so I could see the effect of each change I made.

I decided to bite the bullet and try re-threading it with the thread I had ordered from GUR. I could not believe how easy it was to thread. The machine is much quieter than I expected it to be and I love the fact that you can completely open up the front to see where all the threads go.

Thank you GUR for your excellent, efficient service. I can't wait to start sewing in earnest.

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Ordering process was very straight forward, invoicing and information prior to delivery was spot on. Product despatched and arrived in timely fashion. Well packaged arrived promptly safe and sound. The machine itself is so far, a delight. Easy to follow instructions read, plugged in and away. Working through this and that, some new things to learn, can't yet find anything criticise. If you read the specifications and it fits your needs on paper, I think you'll enjoy this machine.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

Purchased this as a second machine, whilst trying to find a repairer for my Janome. What a fantastic machine- basic but does everything beautifully. Easy to thread, it does come with threads already threaded, but wanted to try it myself. This machine does not disappoint and the customer service has been brilliant in answering my queries prior to purchase. Highly recommend and it came with extra sewing feet-which I am looking forward to trying out soon.

By Mrs Christine Bradbury on 23rd May 2021
Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Bought this machine after a lot of research having previously owned 2 other well known brands. I hadn't heard of Jaguar before but I wanted a machine that did letters and numbers as well as automatic buttonholes . This machine gave me everything I wanted at a really good price and a longer guarantee than other machines. It's a brilliant machine ! Easy threading, automatic tension, clear instruction manual. So easy to change stitches. Embroidery stitches are very well done and just a touch of the screen changes length and width. Basic sewing is smooth and even and I love the feature of automatically backstitching begining and end of seams at the touch of a button. Last but not least , the customer service from GUR was outstanding. I would certainly buy Jaguar again and use …

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Although I bought my Jaguar DQS 405 from GUR in February I didn't get the chance to sew with it until this weekend. Fantastic. I love the speed control, the vast selection of stiches, the needle up/down button, the needle threader etc. This machine is so quiet. I choose Jaguar because I'd previously bought the Jaguar Overlocker and found that easy to use and very quiet compared to the Lidl Model I had. The service was good and the staff very helpful. Thank you.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

I really like this machine. This is my first experience with an overlocker so still learning to use it. However it is surprisingly easy to thread. I am doing a short overlocker course to help learn how to make adjustments to the machine. So far I have had really good results with overlocking my sewing projects.

Review for: Jaguar Supa Lock 488 3 & 4 Thread Overlocker Plus Feet Set

This machine is easy to thread up. I like both doors opening for ease of threading up. As with most overlockers it takes time to get the right tensions. It is a heavy stable machine and sews very nicely over all fabrics especially knits. I had not heard of this brand and am very impressed with the quality of this machine.

By Mrs Kate Kane on 26th April 2021
Review for: Jaguar DQS 377 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Have finished a long-standing project to make removable covers for 2 outdoor sofas. The overlocker did the work in short time with beautiful finish inside and out. Needed to change thread and it was easy to follow instructions. My sister is a DT teacher and was very impressed when she saw how easy it is to access the interior for threading and cleaning. Delighted with my purchase. My daughter had the sewing machine for her birthday and has started some simple projects. She is also pleased with the results and loves being able to sew without a foot pedal. Both Jaguar machines have a good quality feel and we are very happy so far.

Review for: Jaguar DQS 377 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Purchased to replace my Singer that I’d had for over 40 years and I’m absolutely buzzing with it. It has so many features that my old machine didn’t, lots more stitches and is so quiet. I was a little apprehensive and I must admit the price persuaded me to give this Jaguar DQS 377 a chance and I’m so glad I did. I’ve not used it to it’s full potential just yet but I’m impressed with the 4/5 hours I played around with it when it was delivered yesterday. I ordered Sunday morning and it was delivered Tuesday morning, how’s that for service, impressive, thankyou GUR , one very happy customer. Love the free sewing bag too, thankyou.

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

Absolutely delighted with the Jaguar overlocker. Rang GUR for advice as was considering two or three models. The advice (on several occasions!!) was so useful and I was advised that this model would suit my needs rather than the more expensive one I was considering. Machine came pre-threaded and although I felt intimidated the machine has proved itself to be a perfect companion to my Janome sewing machine. Excellent machine and excellent service.

By William Tobias James Chandler on 7th April 2021
Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

I found this machine to be incredibly easy to use, as a first time user of an overlocker. The 180° opening really does help with threading the machine, which again, is very easy following the guides. So far I've only used it in 4 and 2 thread modes, but I'm really, really happy with the professional finish that it provides. GUR were really quick to dispatch the machine, I ordered it on a Sunday evening and the following morning I received confirmation that it has shipped and it was received before 11am on the Tuesday. Such a fantastic service.

I was looking for a new overlocker and needed an easier threading system. This machine is so clear to see how it’s threaded...the machine is sturdy and although I haven’t tried all of the different attachment feet I can’t see it being a problem. Great price too...this is my second new machine from GUR....I would recommend the service and friendly advice and delivery, not to be sneezed at these days!

Review for: Janome Continental M7 Sewing & Quilting Machine

I had been looking for an M7 as a surprise present for my wife. I had done lots of research prior to deciding on this model as it had so many innovative and intuitive features that would allow her to expand on what she has done so far. She is very creative and is an active member of a couple of local sewing groups. It is a large machine but this was for her sewing room. Adjustable LED lighting illuminates the workspace really well. The large throat space and included extension table mean that room to work is truly exceptional for a "domestic" sewing machine. The 7 inch touch screen is bright and clear, offering a degree background colour preference, screen saver timing, sleep and auto shut down settings. The dual spool holders easily accept various sized spools and needle/ …

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

I’ve been sewing for about 10 years, using a mechanical Janone. It is a decent machine, although temperamental when it comes to buttonholes. In a fit of lockdown madness, I bought a Jaguar over locker- having never used one before- and I was smitten. It is a dream. So in a second fit of lockdown madness ( there’s no vaccine for this) I replaced my Janone with a computerised Jaguar. Oh my goodness, it’s another dream of a machine. Buttonholes? Just whisper the word and the machine swings into action. Embroidery and alphabets? I never knew I wanted these. Ordinary stitching? I can vary the lengths and widths precisely. It even threads itself properly. I love this machine, and I’m so glad I bought. It was promptly dispatched by GUR. No complaints.

Extremely happy with my Jaguar DQS405 sewing machine which I purchased as an ex demo. It is so easy to thread and sew with, especially with the easy to thread needle funtion. .

I bought this after looking at reviews of many overlockers, it came out well. I had never used an overlocker but I wanted to neaten fraying edges and was intrigued to what else you can do ... My first morning opening the box, the machine is pre threaded, I started to work my way through the different types of use... then got stuck with replacing a needle... the lovely man on GUR Helpdesk couldn’t have been kinder or more patient. Thank you +++++. It threads easy and the needle issue was me 🤣 .. I love it.

I am 80 and this machine was purchased for me by my husband as my fingers not as supple as they used to be. I am loving this new machine. The very fact that it opens up at the front to facilitate ease of threading the dreaded lower looper. The machine is well made, as yet I have not used all the attachments, but have no reason to think these will notgo well I t is an excellent machine all round with good value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

This is a nice sturdy machine and has the great benefit of being able to see inside the front of the machine whether for threading or cleaning - very helpful. An easy to use machine with good speed when seeing. However I find the light very poor and only lights up the area over the left of the needles.

Despite having easy access to the loopers to ease threading I have still found this overlocker a bit temperamental which is why I got rid of my old one and bought new. I accept it has to threaded in a very specific way but sometimes it still plays up despite changing threads and needles. which is dissapointing. It was good value that you got the interchangeable feet with it but you do need good dexterity which I havent got. With regard to the seller they dealt with my order efficiently and the item arrived promptly just I begin to despair of overlockers and their foibles!

Review for: Janome HD2200 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Used for about a week now and it is performing very well. Only very minor issue I have found is that the thread cutter cuts threads too short which results in the thread pulling out of the needle.

It’s a great machine and very easy to thread and use. The only thing which is a minor nuisance is that the waste catcher is easily knocked off. Otherwise it is fantastic.

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

Love, love, love this machine. Bought primarily to cope with sewing scrubs for FTLOS North Lincs. Was scared to use (look back and shake head at myself). Once I overcame my silly self, got into it . Easy to use, lovely finish on seams, easy to thread as long as you take your time and follow instructions on DVD. One small issue was that the little connector for the lint tray snapped soon after purchase, but not a big problem. Still worthy of 5 stars.

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker
Beautiful study machine, I wished I had bought one years ago. I was a little apprehensive at first when I had to thread it but took my time and it wasn't difficult, particularly as the front of the machine fully opens. Instructions are easy to read and I'm working my way through an array of fabrics and trying it out. It has made life so much easier to finish seams on soft furnishings and clothes. I bought this on a recommendation and my only niggle is the flimsy catch which holds the thread catcher tray to the machine, which has broken, but not a problem. However, I LOVE IT and use it at every opportunity, a good buy for the price.

I have been using this machine for about a month now. I have been extremely happy with it so far! I have sewn all different types of fabric and had absolutely no issues! It’s super easy to thread. The access to remove lint & loose cuttings is superb. I would absolutely recommend this machine.

I purchased my overlocker from GUR following a recommendation from a friend and I couldn't be happier. I had an issue paying through the website so rang them and they sorted it really quickly. The man was so helpful and friendly. It was delivered the very next day. The machine is awesome. And the icing was when I googled how to rethread the machine I got a YouTube video from GUR that was perfect. Definitely recommend this company.

I love this Jaguar overlocker it’s very easy to operate and simple to re-thread with both fronts of the machine opening it makes it an easy job. It has a solid casing and has a relatively quiet motor. In the short time that I have owned it, it has been in constant use having made 300 masks and 100 cushion covers in lockdown and it has taken it all in its stride. I also have a Brother overlocker but much prefer the Jaguar. It was well worth the extra cost.

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

This seems as if it is going to be great . Like most first time owners it’s going to take a while to get the results I long for. So far I’ve threaded it incorrectly (3 times) and then learnt the correct method. Tried and failed to overlook and trim - too wide , too loose then a number of successful seams. I’m now beginning to get consistent results and it looks like we’re going to be very happy together .!!

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

I have always been put off (scared) of overlocking machines because of the threading process plus not being skilled at sewing either. But after researching them recently I decided to take the plunge watching a GUR video on Youtube showing how to thread this machine and it was very simple, nothing like I'd been imagining! The price was the best and GUR also had a 12 months interest free option which is always a welcome plus even if you only take advantage until payday. This machine has helped to keep me sane during lockdown by making lots of small projects to amuse myself.

Review for: Jaguar 489 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

I wouldnt recommend this machine. It may be easy to thread but the tension is shocking. I tested the scrap that came with machine.. fine. Then changed material tension on stitches was awful..finally get tension sorted machine starts to shudder.. thread breaks.. tension goes wonky again.. i fix it..anytime you stop using machine then go back to it a different day it starts all over again.. All while intermittently shuddering every so often like it gonna blow. Worst decision i ever made was buying this. And ive made some bad decisions in life!

Coming from a budget machine I was reasonably expecting a change in experience. I certainly had that but most importantly my garments are now looking rather more professional - I love the quality of the straight stitch and top-stitch. The MC6700 is a joy to use - multiple layers of fabrics are not a problem thanks to the excellent feeding mechanism. After two months of use I have no negatives. Having purchased before from GUR I am familiar with their top customer service - again faultless, quick and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you guys again. Will speak again for next purchase

This is the first time I have used a Jaguar sewing machine , having used Singer for the last 30 years. I can say that the machine looks very well made. I have used it to make a summer dress and have found that each setting I have used has worked very well. It is taking me some practice to get used to the start stop button instead of using the foot pedal, but the fantastic thing is that I have a choice of either. I am finding that the information booklet is good at explaining how to use the embroidery section. I love my new machine, It is going to get better with practice for me, but I cannot fault the machine at all.

After completing university 2 years ago ive been on the search for a “proffesional” or “propper” sewing machine to manage my bridal wear projects! Whilst i own a janome domestic machine and have done for over 10 years i can honestly say nothing compares to the Janome HD9. I would highly reccomend, everything about is so glorious! Having used Juki’s at University (machines built into tables) i was a bit apprehensive about how this machine was going to behave! Its solid, high qaulity and able to complete the tasks at hand with ease! If you want a professional sewing machine which you can transport around (its very heavy though) this is the one for you! Very well suited to my dressmaking needs! And thank you to Gursew for a swift delivery, you guys are Ace!…

I’m absolutely delighted with this machine. It is my first expensive machine (my previous one was a Janome DC3050) - the difference is amazing. Buttonholes are a dream - I used to get so frustrated with my last machine as automatic buttonholes were ‘hit and miss’ I love all the extras like the knee lift and automatic thread cutter. I’ve yet to start a quilt, which was my reason for scaling up, as I’m sewing scrubs for the NHS but I’m confident that the machine will help me produce professional results. So glad I splashed out. GUR were brilliant and I will definitely use them in the future.

I bought this machine from GUR as I have been a client for many years and this is not the first machine I have bought from the Company. This one was a birthday gift for my daughter and will be her first. We were worried that it would not arrive in time since the order was placed just after Christmas but as soon as I had confirmed the order by phone it was prepared and dispatched. I was not sure what model to buy and so I asked and was given very sound advice. I live in Italy and was delighted when the machine arrived in good time for the 11 January birthday. We opened the packaging and examined the machine and changed the power cord connection to Italian standard. We ran the machine for a few minutes and it sounded so sweet!

I requested delivery on a specific day, and was given a time frame. The machine arrived on time.

It was well packaged. It appears very well made.

I made myself unthread the machine straight way so that it didn't become daunting. The threading instructions are clear, and I found it easy to thread; the 180 degree opening front and DVD certainly helped. So far I've only practiced with one stitch in 4 thread overlocking, haven't made any alterations to width or density or tried any of the extra feet included in the package. The stitches are very neat, and look good.

I'm very pleased with both the machine and the service, which have been excellent. Thankyou.

This is a quality built machine that is very sturdy and light to carry which would be fantastic for anybody taking sewing classes for example.

This Jaguar 489 is a fantastic overlocker. I got a real deal and haven't stopped using it since it arrived. It's really straightforward and easy to use. My only slight issue is that trying to thread can be complicated at times, but that's more due to being left handed. Some of the mechanisms get in the way when I'm trying to thread it. Have recommended it to plenty of mates though and would suggest it to anyone reading this review.

Until now, I have never owned an overlocker until now. I was trying to sew some stretch fabric, but with a standard sewing machine, it was having none of it. So I spoke to a very helpful gentleman on the phone, I explained to him, the type of fabric I was using and what I was looking to achieve. Immediately he recommended this machine for me. So I went and purchased this Jaguar 489 Overlocker. It is very simple to thread and to clean, even for a total novice like myself, as the front opens up and swings out the way, very smart. You will not be unhappy in any way if you buy this Jaguar 489 Overlocker. I love it, only had it a few weeks, already made 3 shirts, a top from my stretch fabric, and will finish a shirt later.

I purchased my Jaguar from my local sewing centre. I felt I needed the peace of mind that, if I had no clue what I was doing with my item, some one on one assistance might be invaluable. Well, this item rocks. I was nervous about re threading it, especially after hearing the sewing centre lady say some customers go back several times for rethreading help before they 'get it'. I broke One of my threads, I managed to get it re threaded within minutes. I'm thrilled. It does a lovely, uniform stitch and I can knock together kids pyjama bottoms or tops in less than 30mins. All this, from someone who had never even switched an overlocker on 2 1/2 weeks ago. It's a fantastic unit.

Hi, The overlocker is going well. I just wanted to say that I bought the same overlocker (then labeled a a Frister & Rossman) about 25 years ago and it cost me £420 (a lot of money then). The new item I bought from you recently cost £220 - that is mad isn't it?! Best wishes, Bridgette Bruckshaw

Review for: Janome Memory Craft 6700P Sewing and Quilting Machine

As a professional dressmaker I love this item, it is such a joy to use and very versatile even with fine or very heavy duty sewing (helicopter covers !) I like it so much that I am getting rid of my Bernina 1800. The sewing area is much bigger at 10” and the tension superior (to the Bernina ). Plus with LED Lights, a higher resolution LCD screen, plus the built in 20 Memory Banks, allows me to save my stitches so I can go back to them later.

Review for: Janome HD2200 Sewing and Quilting Machine

This is a sturdy and robust sewing machine which is basic technology wise but works very well. I bought it to go alongside a more temperamental computerised machine and the two complement each other very well.

Review for: Janome HD2200 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Heavy Duty at it's best. Many layers of canvas is no problem. Very nice machine. I’ve not tried all the stitch options, but it’s so much easier and quieter to use than my previous Janome machine. Already made one patchwork cushion.

Review for: Janome HD2200 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Janome hd2200 arrived next day via DPD Next Day. The outer packaging was much too big and was in a poor state which seemed to have caused some damage to the inner Janome packaging which was loose inside the main outer. Fortunately the Janome inner styrene foam protected the sewing machine which operated very well without any apparent malfunction. Overall an excellent machine. I tried all the major functions; buttonholing, button sewing, over edging,etc.. and I was particularly impressed with the needle threading facility. Well pleased !!

Review for: Janome HD2200 Sewing and Quilting Machine

This is such a lovely machine. I am a professional dressmaker and have industrial machines as well and bought this machine mainly for buttonholes and zig zag stitch but I find myself using it for general making as well. It is a heavy base, does not jump around, has a purring sound, has easy function with threading and bobbin winding. The auto buttonhole is excellent and it's easy to change stitches. The stitching and tension has been perfect on all stitches. I really am delighted with this and it sits nicely next to my Janome overlocker. Great product.

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

I treated myself to the Jaguar DQS 405 sewing machine and its been an absolute dream to use for my patchwork classes and around the home. I had a Frister Rossmann machine which was bought for me as gift last year and had nothing but hassle, the machine kept on breaking down me and had it replied 4 times under warranty, it was useless. I would recommend GUR Sewing Machines as they took my machine in part exchange and gave me £100 trade in ( I was lucky as it was a scrap machine in my opinion).......GUR help me with lessons on my new Jaguar sewing machine and loads of advice, I will not be shopping anywhere else Thank You GUR Sewing

Great service great machine a breeze to use- so simple my teenager loves to use it! Good features practically sews by itself! Sturdy solid machine. I keep looking for new projects to do lol . Alphabet and numerals make it easy to personalise. 1 criticism though I find it has far fewer stitches than the 500 advertised !! But what is there are good for quilting etc..

I love my new sewing machine. I am a beginner to sewing and I have completed 4 small projects already in 3 weeks. This machine is quiet and very easy to use. The quick threading system is a much appreciated nice to have. It everything that one would need in a modern computerised sewing machine. Thanks Palma for the excellent service and advice. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it.

I cannot rate this machine or Steven from GUR highly enough. Steven was very helpful and had a sense of humour!!! As he had to guide me through the online ordering process, that was a bonus! I got my lovely new machine a couple of days after ordering, and I loved it from the word go. It is so easy to use, and came with a very comprehensive manual. Free cottons, needles, extension table and lots more goodies AND I part exchanged my machine for £100 making this an even bigger bargain :) I highly recommend this machine and GUR.

My mum surprised me with my first new sewing machine for all my university projects. Love the jaguar machine, love the easy threading, love the easy bobbin loading and love the ease of use. The speed controller is fantastic for a starter like me to be able to control the machine to my pace. Overall I am extremely satisfied with the Jaguar DQS 405 it’s the perfect companion for me to develop my sewing skills!

Review for: Jaguar DQS 377 Sewing and Quilting Machine

I am a beginner to patchwork and quilting, this machine was recommended to me by one of my classroom quilters. WOW have I improved or what, thoroughly enjoyed using the Jaguar 377 compared to my Janome TXL607 which gave me grief and the machine was exchanged and same faults: 1. Foot control not working, machine kept messaging foot not connected 2. Tension problem on the lower side of sewing. 3. Machine was so intermittent one day the electrics okay and the following day the machine will not want to operate. Since I treated myself to the Jaguar 377 I have managed to make 2 quilts which one of them I am hoping to have on display at the Malvern Quilt Show. Thank you GUR for all the help and advice and thanking you for taking my old machine in part exchange.

Visited GUR Superstore and was pleasantly surprised at the range of haberdashery and sewing machine selection. This is my 3rd machine from GUR, after trying various brands...decided on the Jaguar as the stitch quality and finishing seemed far better for my quilting projects. I have had the machine for 3 months and have put it through some difficult to sew projects, glad to say - NO PROBLEM . Thank you GUR for the time and coffees at the store and for putting up with me for most of the morning before making my choice. 5 stars.

Review for: Jaguar DQS 405 Sewing and Quilting Machine

My name is Anna and this is the first time that I have ever written a review - they asked me to share my thoughts about their service and my machine for the benefit of other customers who might be thinking about the new model. Please forgive me if some of this bores you, but I write and speak a lot and feel that it is important to be clear at all times. I have been sewing in my spare time for several years now. I own a Jaguar 127 and have always found the machine very reliable and was of course glad to learn that they had made a new model. Lost of cash They put my mind at ease when I was told that GUR was able to offer me a Jaguar 30 day peace of mind guarantee for my purchase - I could not believe that I was able to purchase the machine and use it with no risk for 30 days and …

When I called gur sewing machines they were fantastic, answered all of my queries and were very friendly. The machine arrived safely and I'm very happy and will be buying again from this company.

Review for: Janome 6234XL 2,3 & 4 Thread Overlocker

Fantastic little machine that works straight from the box! 4, 3 and 2 Thread stitches are all very effective and the rolled hem is very nicely done. If you haven't used overlockers very much before, the instruction DVD that comes with it is very clear and very useful - especially for helping you understand the huge range of things that can be done with this machine. It is a well established design from Janome, who must have sold 1000's of these beauties. Tension setup on this machine is consistent and smooth - a real plus! Solidly built and very nice quality I would recommend this machine to anyone needing a good solid workhorse machine. Well worth the price difference compared with cheaper machines!

Good Points It is 2 3 or 4 thread (I mainly use 3) easy to thread as it is colour coded. a bit fiddly but you soon get the hang of it. Knife can be dropped easily. Assorted feet for piping, gathering etc. Bad Points I can not think of any thing. General Comments The Janome MyLock 634D has been my only overlocker. I have had mine twelve years with no problems. I worked in a machine shop when I bought it and I could have had any one. But I demonstrated this as a favourite. Just hope it keeps going for another 12 years
