This is a good solid machine, easy handle and clear threading guide. I
haven't used all the facilities yet but am well pleased with the ones I have.
The high lift on the foot is a bonus for quilting. It is quiet running with many little extras.
I like this very much and would recommend. It was delivered in a timely manner after help from GUR.
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! We repacked it and presented it on the day so as yet it is too early to review the performance however, it has many features that my machine does not including the facility to make name tags for our 6 year old grand-daughters school clothing. I am sure it will give great satisfaction! If not - I will swap it for my sturdy old Elna also supplied by GUR about 10 years ago.
A lovely machine: solid, quiet and a great range of stitches. Have made two children's aprons so far and the stitching is super. A very easy machine to use. I haven't sewn for a few years and loved my old, solid machine, this one is a great replacement and upgrade. Highly recommend.
It was a long hard decision on which machine to get, every review suggested a different one. I went for this because it seemed to be the one I saw most often at craft shows, it had £100 off - so in my price range and it seemed to offer a whole host of stitches and other features. I opened the box and spent a long time reading the instruction book and watching the DVD which comes with the machine. In all honesty I think I was afraid to turn it on. But curiosity got the better of me and off we went on our journey of discovery together !! I have used it for a few things now, blind sticking, Appliqué work, straight stitching. Everything stitches beautifully - it is a dream to use. It is solid, well built, easy to use, intuitive even in the mode settings. I have now got used to features like the stop start function, cutting the thread is the button from heaven !! I love it. The last thing I heard my husband mutter as he left the room two days ago was she might as well marry that thing - never a truer word said, its well built, reliable, does what i would like it to do and has many wonderful features - if only husbands came the same !!
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.
great machine easy to use .very pleased with my purchase.
Great offer on a lovely mid range machine, perfect for what I need.
A great improvement over my old machine. Much quieter and sews smoothly and evenly keeping the tension correct. I have successfully tried the buttonhole function but not tried everything yet.
Many thanks to Gur telephone help they really help trying to find what you're after and what they know about their products would recommend anybody to deal with them first class service and delivery 10 out of 10 would recommend anybody to deal with them first class service and delivery 10 out of 10
Delighted with this machine ,it has everything I wanted for an excellent price. We were surprised just how quiet it was too.
This sewing machine is everything I expected and more. Would highly recommend it to new and experienced sewists. Quick delivery thank you GUR
Nice machine to use. Easy to understand. Very quick delivery
A great machine and good value in the sale.
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
excellent service and an amazing machine thank you
I wasn't sure about buying a Janome as I hated one I had before. However the Janome 5060 qdc has all the requirements I need for an extra machine so thought I'd take the risk. I love it! It feels sturdy, and very easy to navigate. The free extention table & quilting foot + bag were a real bonus and customer service excellent as usual. I think I'd even recommend this machine for a serious beginner as there is so much you can do on it. Free motion embroidery is a breeze. The auto needle threader just needs a little practise, and in my experience, gets better and smoother to use over time. Very pleased customer. .thank you GUR sewing machines for a fab buy and service!
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.
Great machine seed through multiple layers easily - great service from GUR - ordered Saturday received on Tuesday! I bought lots of extras with this machine - highly recommended!!
I LOVE this machine. I wanted something without too many fancy stitches but something that could cope with heavy materials and this is exactly what I wanted. Arrived within three days, so I am seriously impressed thank you GUR
Arrived in super quick time and I absolutely LOVE this machine, took it to sewing class and took it out of the box and finished a bag I had been struggling with on my previous machine through six layers including faux leather !! Perfect
Love my machine, roman blind was my first make, still need to get used to no peddle, not noisy either
Super fast next day delivery . Great machine, wish i had bought this make sooner. Never owned a janome before. Does everything i need and more. Simple to operate. No problems at all.
I have bought a great deal from Gur sewing machines from accessories to top of line sewing/embroidery machines. I live in France yet the delivery has been prompt and supplied tracking good. The prices have mostly been unbeatable. I recently purchased the Small Jaguar DQS 405 machine as a gift for my granddaughter and whereas the machine is good for a young beginner I have been very spoilt with my more top end machines and apart from patchwork this particular Machine would never be good for me and the work that I do. Neither would I have paid the full -original price but at special offer it is an excellent purchase. I am now saving up for a Janome M7 machine which for quilting, art quilts, and all general sewing would be my ultimate for a very good sewing machine. At the moment it is beyond my reach but when I can purchase it will be to Gur sewing machines I will purchase from with confidence in their service. Thank you Gur Sewing machines for your international service.
Really like this machine. Just right for an inexperienced sexist like myself. Haven’t used a computerised machine before but already am gaining confidence because it’s easy to understand and use. Delighted with the number of stitches it provides too.
I highly recommend this machine. So far so good working well. This machine is only slightly different from my old Janome TXL607 , which is old but still working. I can't wait to try some of the new decorative stitches on this machine. You always get good helpful friendly service from GUR whether buying a small item or bigger.
I spoke to Palma yesterday about a new item and today I took delivery of my Janome Antelier 6. My old item which is about 20yrs old has no whistles or bells so i was a little worried about being able to use all the different stitches and setting up this new one. I got it straight out of the box and firstly filled a bobbin and put it i, then i threaded the item and used the automatic needle threader. It was a breeze. I sat and tried out some of the lovely applique' stitches and it was all so very easy, the item told me which feet to use for the different tasks, making it ver easy to use. The item sits still and just purrs along. I cant wait to get started on my first quilt. Thank you so much Palma for your help and patience, not once did you pressure me, you answered all my questions politely and patiently. I will recommend GUR and you Palma to anyone that asks and I got the best deal currently available. First class all the way. Well done GUR.

I am very pleased with my sewing machine which as replaced my old Pfaff creative machine.
The machine is wonderful and sews like a Rolls Royce but only cost a mini! Since I received it I have made several tops, dresses and even a bag.
I have called it Erik after the delivery man who arrived exactly when he should have. Many thanks to you all at GUR for encouraging me to buy this model, so far I have not regretted it.
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.
Fantastic Machine wish I’d bought it earlier. Absolutely great service from GUR highly recommend this company ordered Monday arrived Tuesday
Brilliant machine ideal for beginners
As my 1st computerised machine this is so easy to use.
I absolutely love it. Would definitely recommend.
Great customer service also, as arrived earlier than expected. .
Great service from GUR, fast secure delivery.
I would definitely recommend this company.
Absolutely love my Jaguar Novum Craft sewing machine.
This computerised machine is so easy to use.
Really good speed control with a very responsive foot pedal and also a start/stop button. The stitch selection is pretty impressive for the price.
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.
Prompt and Speedy delivery, with fantastic service. The Janome 219-S Machine sews great. It’s Smooth, quiet, & easy to use. I’d highly recommend this machine to anybody, especially if you are a beginner.
Can't recommend both GUR and this particular machine enough. Steve went above and beyond to make sure I got the best machine for my needs, and this Jaguar is phenomenal. So easy to set up and use, and the quality is amazing! Looking forward to many years of happy sewing.
Hi, this is the first sewing machine I have purchased and I love it. It is so easy to use (so far lol) I am starting a new project soon and feel this machine will cope with it with no problems Evelyn
Wow what a fantastic machine and superb service! GUR suggested this machine as a suitable sewing and embroidery machine.
I haven’t looked back, since I can do basic sewing, embroidery and quilting all in one place. The stitches are beautiful and a lovely wide range of embroidery designs, I found the threading of the machine quite easy.
Considering I’ve never done embroidery before, the instructions make it incredibly simple to get started and to learn new skills.
The delivery was extremely fast (next day) and a well-rounded machine.
I will be shopping with GUR in the near future for any accessories for the machine
Received my Jaguar DQS 405 very promptly a couple of weeks ago. Was pleased with the quality of the build, and the solidness of the case. Having had a couple of weeks now to try it out - the needle threader is fab - my eyesight not what it was. I have done some straight sewing on it and now learning how to use the embroidery stitches. My old machine is at least 30 years old so using a computerised machine rather different but so far so good. Overall very pleased with my purchase and service from GUR.
Completely love this Brother Innovis M280D ! I decided to treat myself to a new machine, but was unsure, so I visited GUR store. Although my sewing talents are quite limited, I do enjoy sewing and making bits and pieces for the family. I wanted to upgrade to a machine that could quilt and with an embroidery function, but was put off by the price and difficulty of some machines. However, the Brother Innovis M280D does it all and more, sewing and embroidery, featuring Disney characters. Despite its wide range of functions and patterns, it is surprisingly straightforward to operate. Within a day or so, I felt completely at ease with it. A great all-in-one model! Topped off with a fantastic service and a great price!
I rang GUR to advise me on the best machine for my other half. Eventually after some advice from the sales team, I decided to buy the Janome Atelier 5. She’s very delighted, as it has a wide range of features allowing her to sew everything when needed. A very good machine, much improved from her older machine. Many thanks for the fantastic service and quick delivery.
Bought this on previous offer. Good machine. Gift at this price
I've only just bought this machine and can't believe how good it is.
I've got a top of the range Pfaff but this out does that hands down.
Not keen on the backwards button as I'm used to my other one just tying off at the start and end of a row but other than that all's good.
For the money it seems to be a well built good quality machine.
I bought this machine when my old one broke down soon after starting the massive task of making new loose covers for my lounge suite. The new machine is excellent, very smooth and easily able to deal with many layers of fabric effortlessly. The bobbin just drops in and threads easily and the whole operation is very quick. This machine would be ideal for a beginner. The price is amazing and mine was delivered in 48 hours. Excellent service, highly recommended.
I bought this as a temporary and cheap solution to use when I'm away from home. To be honest I didn't expect much at all from the performance of this machine because it's so basic but on my first time using it I was so Impressed! The first thing i noticed was how quiet it was! I know of many other machines on the market in this price range and also some higher end sewing machines that are not as quiet as this one. 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. The first thing i did was stitch out all the stitches available so I could assess the quality of each stitch pattern, not only were they reasonably good quality but the machine sewed so smoothly which I love! The reverse stitch button functioned very well, I'm mentioning this because that function on other brands of manual sewing machines I have owned in the past have been quite stiff to press. Also you can get great control of the foot pedal on this machine which is fantastic if your doing top stitching and you need to sew slowly for a perfectly accurate result which gives a very professional look to your project. Overall it's a wonderful sewing machine! I would love to know what the higher end Brother manual or computerised sewing machines are like now that I have had the pleasure of trying this one! I'm so thankful that I have tried a Brother sewing machine because I think when I can upgrade I shall upgrade to another Brother machine! "Brother by your side"
I haven't used a sewing machine for years but having just moved, I wanted curtains, cushions etc that were exactly what I wanted rather than making do with ready-made 'good enough'. I have made all the soft furnishings for my home, reupholstered my son's caravan, made personalised bedding for the kids, repaired zips and lots of other jobs - I don't know how I managed for so many years without a machine! This particular machine has been so simple to use and far less complicated than older machines. Threading and bobbin instructions are printed on the actual machine making it almost fool proof. The only issue I had was when I used different thread for the top stitch and bobbin which really didn't work (serves me right for trying to take a shortcut!). Overall, highly recommended for beginners or straighforward sewing.
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.
This Brother Innovis NV1100 is a fabulous machine. I quilted my first project, without any tears and tantrums. I would highly recommend this machine for both sewers and quilters.
