Very pleased for my new overlocker. New to overlocker's and pleased with the ease of use. I can recommend to new users for ease of use, threading and does all that a beginner to immediate sewer would need. Price point good and the extra's pressers foots a good deal. Loved the surprise gift of the fab carrying case. Will be great for storage. Service from Our great. Ordered on Wednesday arrived ready to use on Thursday. Shipping included in the pricing which I like. Will visit your web site again. Thanks
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!
I've never used an overlocker before but after a lot of deliberation I bought the Jaguar 489... I love it! I've even re-threaded it! I would definitely recommend it!
Fabulous. Works like a dream and so easy to thread
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.
Very pleased with this one..cannot praise GUR highly enough for their customer service, will definitely recommend them
Great machine, just what I wanted, very easy to use which was very important. Works well with excellent finish to the fabric. GUR were very helpful and the service was first class. Machine arrived the next day. Will definately use them again.
Really pleased with my overlocker. It is easy to thread, very responsive to the pedal and quiet. The customer service team at GUR are superb
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.
Good value and a very well made and engineered machine. Very easy to thread. Stitches very good
Bought it for my daughter who is thrilled to bits with it. No problem threading it which she tells me can be a problem. She's finished a pair of trousers for my grandson in record time.
I am very impressed with the quality and promptness of service of your company. This is the quickest I have received an order from mainland UK especially in the light of the current pandemic. Themachine which I have now unpacked, read the manual, and watched the Dvd as well as having a trial run,comes well up to my expectations. I am 80 and my husband purchased this machine for me as I found my fingers no longer worked well in threading my original overlocker. I am absolutely delighted with this purchase.
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. Good value for money and it's a great help for all sewers .
Extremely fast delivery, machine is fab. It's quite noisy and shakes my sewing table! Very good value. Can't believe how long I waited before buying one!
I bought the Janome overlocker after a recommendation. It’s a fantastic machine, easy to use and thread. Ive rethreaded it already and it’s easy with the manual. I’m still getting to work with the machine. It’s quieter than a practice machine I tried and after many months of deliberation I opted for this one as my first overlocker. The GUR sewing company have been flawless and very helpful throughout
Arrived next day, everything perfect, already threaded. Watched the video and was then able to see out a little purse. I managed to break a needle , so needed to rethread but much to my surprise was pretty straightforward.
Perfect little overlocker, came threaded which was a god send! Not used too much but does everything I want. Haven't had any faults with the company yet either
Love this Overlocker, and the service received from GUR was excellent, would recommend!
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!
As a first time overlocker, I found this machine to be ideal for my needs . Very pleased with the quality and how easy it is to use
I have just purchased this overlocker after looking around for some time. I chose this one in the end because it look strong and easy to use. I am learning to thread with the help of the on line videos. I am sure I will be able to master it given time. The price is excellent for this strong looking machine. The bundle of extras are all of excellent quality. I am so looking forward to using it. I recommend this machine to any beginner. The service was excellent. The machine was delivered the next day. Amazing.
I replaced my old overlocker with the Brother 4234D, I have found it very easy to use and adjust, I see many different types of fabric and it has been perfect for the ones I have used so far , I have not tried a rolled hem but hope to give that a go soon , the needle threader is very useful.
This overlocker is great for beginners and the more experienced. Easy to get the hang of, threading it was a piece of cake, it gives my projects a fast professional finish. So glad I purchased this item. Would recommend.
I upgraded to this from a basic singer overlocker and am finding it much easier to thread and much more reliable. It is much quieter and doesn’t feel like it’s going to shake itself apart! I haven’t had a chance to use the additional feet yet but will definitely be giving them a go when I find a new project. This is a great overlocker, although I am a relatively inexperienced sewer.
Very pleased with my machine it came when I was told and the machine is very easy to thread and use very pleased with it I would recommend this to any one who is looking for a easy overlocker and gur kept me informed on the delivery thank you
A sturdy little machine, bought as a second Overlocker to support a grandmother sewing for assorted grandchildren and reduce the time spent rethreading different colours. I can now have a dark and a light thread ready to use. A luxury indeed. I used her to make a child's fleece top. She managed two layers with ease, needed a little careful handling with neckband three layers, but overall worked well. She really is easy to thread, a lot easier than my Jannome. The only reason she gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because she is missing a built in thread cutter. Its been a while since I have had to use snips to snip thread after chaining off. As always GUR offer great service, they are a pleasure to buy from. Informative, helpful and always cheerful.
Nice machine for fine to heavyweight fabric easy to thread
Brilliant overlocker, easy to thread and very smooth, would recommend
I have had a brother Overlocker before which was why I went for this one. I was not disappointed it’s an excellent machine if a trifle noisy. The service from GUR was second to none, I was kept up to speed all the way through my transaction. Thank you GUR, this was the first time I have bought from you but it won’t be the last.
Very happy so far with my new overlocker. It works like a dream and is easy to rethread. I haven't tried all the additional feet yet but so far my experience has been great. Excellent customer service from GUR
My Jaguar 489 Overlocker was delivered the day after I ordered it. I love the overlocker. It is easy to thread and sew with. This is my first overlocker and I can honestly say I am very pleased with my purchase from GUR.
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.
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.
I couldn't believe this company! I ordered online on Fri and it arrived on Saturday! DURING LOCKDOWN! Fantastic service. The machine is excellent with good instructions. I was most surprised that I didn't need to change the needle between woven an stretch fabric. That's never happened before. I did need to alter the tension though. I am absolutely delighted with both GUR and my machine but avoid the offer of finance. That company is useless.
I am in love ❤️ This machine is easy to thread, easy to understand and a pleasure to sew with. This Jaguar has re-awakened an urge to create!!!
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.
