Love it! Arrived so quickly and all perfect, even came with a few extras which was really great to get me started!
Love this machine , it's excellent. Only slight criticism is the access to the bobbin, It's a bit fiddly to fit and retrieve.
Super machine! A huge step up from my first Janome and a considered purchase, but worth it. The knee lift is a real game changer for applique and there are so many stitches to choose from. Although I'm still learning about the machine and what it is capable of, I have no hesitation in recommending it.
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/ bobbin treading are easy to follow and a brilliant, reliable needle threader helps greatly. The bobbin winder is really quiet and a joy to use. Stitch settings will take practice to get used to and become second nature, but that is because of the impressive quantity and variety that this machine offers. It's a monumental step up from the 8050XL and any new machine requires some get-to know-you time! The available Accuspark App will help greatly with this with use and is pretty intuitive and really well put together for a free app. The QR code in the bottom RHS of the machine screen has worked every time. We've only had the machine a couple of weeks, but in use so far, the quality of the stitching is truly first class. The brushless DC motor has lots of controlled power and, so far, is smooth and effortless on some free motion quilting with 5 layers of fabric. The 7 piece "box" feed dogs work really well. The separate Accufeed Flex plus motor can be engaged if required and is truly excellent. Adjustments to upper and lower feed ratios can be made if the fabrics require it. The HP "High Performance" needle plate and HP foot allow exceptional straight stitch speed up to 1300 spm and quality easily as good as her PROSEW industrial straight stitch machine. The ability to change between the three included needle plates is truly innovative and easy to do. The machine screen will "grey" out the stitches and functions not compatible with the needle plate fitted. We're really pleased with the M7 and the excellent service from GUR. It comes with a standard 2 year warranty, which we have extended to 5 years through Janome UK for an additional £60 fee. The Janome design team and engineers have really done well to pack so many features into a "domestic" machine. I'd say that the only negative points would be the price and it's size if space was an important consideration. It's still 5*'s from me though and thank you again GUR for your excellent customer service. Much appreciated.
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.
Having a little trouble with the tension and needles threader but hopefully will get there
Excellent service from GUR machine arrived next day and is exactly as described. Highly recommended many thanks.
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 also like the option which allows me to sew without a foot pedal. I would say this is a machine I can grow into as I sew and learn The next day delivery was very good. I give this machine 5 stars.
Having had the machine a few weeks and taken time to get used to its various functions (but not all of them yet!) I have to say I am extremely happy with it. Apart from it looking sleek and ergonomic I love the full colour screen, and video tutorials, the simple, clear way each stitch is described and the modifications you apply (length, width) are displayed on screen as you alter them so no guessing! Using it for quilting a lot of the time the long throat length is perfect, and it has an impressive array of feet and attachments. A nice touch is being able to drop the feed dogs for FMQ from a button on the LCD display screen - no removing the extension table and reaching round to the back of the machine for an up/down lever. The amount and variety of decorative stitches are amazing, and the monogramming function is great. I've had auto-needle threading before but never as infallible as this, works every time. Threading top thread is super easy, the machine even tells you if you've done it wrong, and the bobbin threading is a doddle. The manual is very comprehensive and a brilliant resource. Stitches are even and the machine runs smoothly and quietly. I have had no trouble with nesting. I could go on, singing it's praises but best of all was the customer service from GUR, and Palma in particular who took so much trouble to make sure I had the right machine for me. Highly recommend GUR.
I love this machine, it is a bit pricey but well worth the money. I do quite a lot of quilting and the size of the machine makes this so much easier. It also has plenty of embroidery functions as well. I spent quite sometime looking for the right machine to meet my needs and this machine definitely ticks all the boxes for me.
Great Sewing machine and yet again great service from Gur, would highly recommend this Company
I feel so lucky, I am returning to sewing after many years, and have received this machine as a gift. It is perfect, excellent instruction manual, a comprehensive range of extras and so easy to use
Great service from GUR ordered Thursday delivery Friday morning, sewing is a dream to use, very easy to work out love at threaded needle and the top bobbin loading would recommend
Saved up for a long time for this machine then had to wait untill it became available. I had it in November 2020. I have been using a 350e for about 8 years. I thought the 550 would be quieter, it isn't. It is noisier than my 350, which I can see now is a quality machine. There is a lot to love about the 550, the size of the hoops, the colour screen and all the lovely things you can do with it but I feel very disappointed overall. A design today would not stitch out but did on my 350. The machine is noisy and sounds 'clunky'. The cover is just a sheet of plastic. I really regret buying this machine.
I am very pleased so far with my new machine.Havent used many of the features yet but have found it easy to thread & use.Sews an accurate quarter inch seam.Price was excellent for the quilting package.Delivery &tracking info was very good
I finally took the decision to buy the Excellence 680 and I am so glad I did! It is everything I was looking for, wide throat for quilting/patchwork, ease of use, amazing extension table, more variations of stitches than I will ever need with a clear alphabet to add to my delight! My experience with GUR was delightful. They were helpful and informative and I received my machine within 24 hours of purchase! Can not praise the company enough!
I bought this machine for my husband, he was always using mine. I am so jealous.
It is amazing and he is doing so well considering he has only ever sewn skin before. (He was a surgeon) now he has made a quilt which is the envy of al of our children and has a lot of orders from them.
I have not had a look in so far but i am biding my time for when he has a day off. It runs like a dream, so quiet and very easy to manage. The extras are really good. Wish i had one too.
I am loving my new machine; I have struggled with free motion quilting for years using a small Janome domestic machine and a larger husqvarna domestic machine. Skipped stitches eyelashes and broken thread, straight from the box I had no problem and am now quilting with rulers and becoming pleased with the results. So, thankyou it was worth the wait, and the service you provided was excellent. Should I have problems in the future I will be in touch for some help.
I received my Janome 5060 QDC Computerised Sewing Machine Plus Wide Table Included early January but only started using it yesterday. It’s light to carry and the wide table is great as I was sewing curtains. Nice and quiet and easy to use. So far I’ve only used straight stitching and looking forward to use all the embroidery stitches and the quilting accessories. Great machine
Staff very helpful and delivery was next day as promised. Instructions with machine clear and it is quite in use. Had a problem with tension and was disappointed with fancy stitches, I unthreaded machine and rethreaded both upper thread and spool. I had not threaded spool properly and tension is better. I did some dressmaking and find the thread trimmer button and speed adjustment useful. I am still getting used to machine and have not tried all the stitches yet. I am sure I will be able to get support if I need it in future
I am completely happy with this fantastic machine. I love all the functions, it makes sewing garments so much quicker and gives professional results even for a beginner like myself. I look forward to a growing relationship with this machine and producing quality items. Many thanks
I’m making a handmade wardrobe and wanted to upgrade a basic machine with one that does buttonholes, bar tacks and utility stitches. After quite a bit of research I decided on the Brother A16 as it seems to be a well built machine with functions that I’ll find useful for sewing jeans, jackets, shirts etc. I particularly like that it copes well with heavy fabrics like denim due to the 7 piece feed dog, and that it has a 1 step auto sizing buttonhole function with 3 buttonhole styles. I also like the ease of the automatic needle threader, the start/stop button, the speed slide control, and the jog dial stitch selector. This machine has an overcasting function which is really useful when making clothes, although I do have a separate overlocker for finishing seams. So far, I’m really happy with this machine and would highly recommend it, and the service from GUR which was excellent. Great 3 year warranty too!
I have just bought the machine, and I am very pleased with it so far. There is quite a lot to learn, but I am working through the book. I liked the way the machine dealt with quite heavy fabric, easily.
I got this after a friend had done all the research whilst looking for a more sophisticated machine for her daughter’s university course. This model was perfect for me. It’s basic but not too basic and the automatic threader is brilliant. The website was easy to use and my new machine was delivered within a couple if days of being ordered on Boxing Day. As I had been to John Lewis and they had absolutely no sewing machines in stock I was thrilled to get this.
I ordered this machine on 22nd December, with no real hope of receiving it until after the Xmas period. It arrived the next day!!!!!! It’s a fabulous machine, very user friendly and supplied with all the accessories you could possibly need. The great selection of stitches for dressmaking, quilting and embroidery, are very easy to access and the very clever machine won’t allow the user to do anything to harm it! I love it. Thank you GUR for such excellent service and for such a good price. Highly recommended.
Brilliant machine so far, excellent service ordered on a Friday received it on the Saturday. Customer service was excellent when i ordered it and the guy was very helpful. Very easy to use machine and thread. The speed is fantastic, love the cutting button and the threading of the bobbin can be done without re threading the machine. Good instruction book. My only regret is not buying it sooner !!
Love it! This is an upgrade from another Janome machine. So easy to get to grips with, I've already finished a pair of trousers with it. Powerfull enough for thicker fabrics, plenty of decorative stitch options and lots of handy features. Combined with my overlocker this produces beautifully finished garments. I would definitely recommend this machine.
I love this sewing machine It’s very simple and easy to use and you have the choice of a foot pedal or the automatic button
I have not had a new machine since I was 18 - then spent the last 25 years wearing out machines family cast-offs so when my last second hand machine bit the dust I decided the time had come to treat myself. However lockdown put paid to the in store experience so a neighbour lent me her Brother LX17 - a basic machine but impressive and my first experience of a Brother. After many many hours reviewing different models and now looking to incorporate one that was easy enough for my daughter to learn to machine sew with and to meet my current needs I chose the Innov-is NV15. Still getting to grips with the auto needle threading - there is definitely a knack to it - but as to the rest, just love it. Machine feels solid but easy enough to move. Love the threading & bobbin guides printed on it. Good lighting, well lit stitch selection screen, simple stitch selection and adjustment (worth sewing a sample sheet displaying the different stitches in different widths and lengths). Easy to change speed and needle position. And the stitch quality is fabulous. I had been expecting to spend around £500+ but this meets my needs for now or until my daughter lays claim to it!! Highly recommend.
Excellent sewing machine — easy to use , light to carry Great value for money
I am very pleased with my new Janome sewing machine and the purchasing experience was a smooth one. Thank you, GUR Sewing Machines!
I purchased the Janome 780dc sewing machine on Monday, excellent service received from Palma in customer service. The item arrived at 8.15 am the following morning. The machine is for a Christmas present so not sure on the workings yet, but a great company to deal with.
Easy to use, clear instructions. Great machine.
The Brother Innovis A50 is a great machine and the service from GUR was also great. From my first call to Palma who answered the phone to me, I have nothing but praise for this company. My friend told me about it, and it was a great choice. I haven't used/tried the machine much yet, but what I have has been great. The self threading device has come on wonderfully in recent years, and for anyone who knew this self threading device years ago and knew how difficult it was, this is totally different. Just fantastic and soooo easy.
I chose this as it seemed to have all the features I needed and was similar to my previous 14 year old Brother machine which was tired out. I'm pleased with the replacement as the LED screen is easy to use, the number of stitches are sufficient for my needs and the bonus of the wide table will be useful for a quilting project which is a new project for me.
Really enjoyed the volume of information that the site had for all machines. Helped make a decision much easier. Found the user reviews helpful too. Ordering was a breeze and delivery was as promised. Haven't unpacked and used the machine yet though but do trust the Brother brand so am looking forward to trying the machine out in the near future.
I ordered the 5060 QDC but it was lost in transit. Being the last one I was offered another machine M100 QDC which I accepted. The team at Gur were so helpful and friendly and made sure my new machine arrived the next day. There was a bobbin missing and they replaced this with some spares within a few days. The customer service is excellent, special thanks to Palma for his help. The machine is lovely and quiet to use, the instructions are clear in the manual plus there's a CD included for visual assistance. My last machine was a manual and 18 years old. My new M100 makes it a pleasure to sew again, with so many time saving features. I can't recommend Gur and the M100 enough, they both do an outstanding job!
This was a fantastic upgrade from an old Brother 8015. I'm so happy with the machine: it's really easy to use, has all the stitches I need, and it's really quiet. GUR sent out the machine really quickly (and for free) and it only took a couple of days to arrive.
I got this as a replacement for my 30 year old brother machine, oh how I wish I had purchased this machine earlier, it is so smooth, quiet and easy to use, and the scissor function well it is wonderful. The service I received from GUR in Birmingham was second to none I highly recommend the machine and the shop.
I was recommended to try this Brother basic computerised machine by Palmer & I'm so glad I took the advice. Its a great, easy to use machine
This is an absolutely amazing machine, I did a lot of research before I bought this particular one and I looked at all the range. This one for me ticked all the boxes and more. It is lightweight at 6.4kg excellent for moving around. The best feature for me is the auto needle threader I am blown away with it. It is even better than my other branded machine! When you are looking for a new sewing machine it is important to research them even the other models and it is also important to know what features you want. And for me this was it. It is also good to have a budget.
This is a wonderful machine does everything i want including sewing buttons on and lock stitch which my last machine didn't have
Well packaged, delivered on time. I am really enjoying using my new machine and trying out new stitches. It is nice and quiet and I am smitten.
Perfect machine. In stock and dispatched the same day for next day delivery. Spot on, Thank you
A very good product and happy with performance Very satisfied with the technical advice and also not least. the communications regarding delivery together with clear billing notice. A good experience
