Easy to order, delivery was very quick. The overlocker came pre threaded which was very useful. The machine is compact but does the job very well. The accessory pack contained tweezers for threading the machine, spare needles and additional feet to carry out other tasks such as gathering etc plus other tools. The waste try is very handy and keeps the work area tidy. The foot pedal is lighter than I expected it to be but does the job. Overall I'm very pleased with the overlocker.
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.
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 😊
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.
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.
I asked questions via the online web chat which helped me make my mind up to purchase this machine, I haven’t used it much but it is easy to thread and it works brilliantly. Very fast delivery as well. I also went on to purchase the extension table for this machine from GUR as well, again - very fast delivery. Keep up the good work GUR.
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.
I wanted to buy a Brother as I have a Brother embroidery machine and have never had any problems with it and find it very easy to use. I haven't used an overlocker for about 20 years and remember how difficult it was to thread, but technology has moved on and I'm so pleased with this machine. It is extremely easy to operate and threading is a doddle compared to the old machines as long as you take your time and do it methodically. The only down side is that it is noisy. I have put it on a padded mat which does help, but I'll have to try something thicker. Overall a joy to use and I wish I'd bought one earlier.
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.
I have never used an overlocker before but find the Jaguar 489 very easy to use and thread. The instructions are very easy to follow and the machine is everything I wanted for my first machine.
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.
I can’t wait to start using my new Jaguar overlocker , read so much about it , it’s the perfect match for me😊
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.
Great product, easy to use, good user manual. Great service from GUR. Ordered and received the next day. Threaded and ready to use. Good machine for a new overlocker like me. Does all that I need it too. Picked up some good tips as well from you tube. Will shop with GUR again. Thank you
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.
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.
