This machine is great, easy to use and comes with excellent instructions. It makes perfect button holes. It does everything that I want from a machine. I am an intermediate sewer and make clothes for myself and husband as well as household items such as curtains. I would recommend it.
This is a good machine works well only thing is the self trending is a bit fiddly Would recommend this to any one who wants a good machine
The Janome GD8100 Computerised sewing machine is fantastic. After my old one died I was hesitant about getting a computerised model, but it is so easy to use and very good value.
An easy to use machine suitable for both beginner and advanced.
Very pleased with the Janome GD8100 computerised sewing machine. Light weight , easy to use lots of lovely different stiches . A very useful machine that suits my needs.
Excellent piece of kit. Well worth the wait. Great purchase. Excellent company to deal with. Will use GUR again for sure
At this point in time with the sun shining outside I've been spending all my time on the garden but I had a bit of a play with it when it came and I'm very pleased so far. It has lots of features that I'm sure I'll be able to use on future projects. It certainly beats my rather basic 50+ year old ALFA which I inherited from my Mum. If the site permits it, I'll update the review when I've used it properly.
I am really happy with Jaguar DQS 401. A bit afraid how to use because my previous experience was with ordinary mechanical sewing machine but now I do not want to change. It is easy to use with an instruction.
I bought this machine based on it being a best seller. She is a good strong study build and loves to work on woven material. Her stitch selection is nice and is the stitches themselves. This machines in any to noisy either. Although the start up noise is odd! But that said, She does not like twin needle even with a organ needle (for the machine) really dislikes it actually and skips stitches non stop and kills itself. I’ve used it 10 times since getting it on my kids tops to hem or leggings to hem. I avoid using it as I wanted twin needle and a machine happy with stretch fabric and even after a blast of steam it isn’t great. I go for my 1975 sewing machine and she finishes it off for me (twin needle too) after things have been overlocked. Personally I dislike this machine I did when my husband said he picked this one my heart sank. Some machines we mesh with others we don’t. This is my personal opinions of this machine. I have come across one other person with this machine and for a best seller I’m amazed so few have it. If I could fix the twin needle issue I may begin to like it possibly but we’ve even had to trouble shoot with janome and they had no idea and couldn’t help.
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.
I am so impressed with this machine, its runs really smoothly, the display is much clearer than you see in the photos or videos, it surprised me. Its so easy to use and the instructions are very easy to understand. It came with everything you need to start sewing. Its good value for money and I don't think I will need a new one for a long time. If you are thinking of buying this machine then I would say go for it. I wish I had made this my first sewing machine. I love all the features on it, the start stop button, the speed control means you get lovely neat straight sticking (something I struggled with before this machine). The scissor feature is great too. Its all really good and I love it. So pleased I purchased this machine and from GUR as it was delivered when they said it would the following day so I didn't have to wait (I'm not great at waiting, lol). Brilliant machine all round, from a good company. I will do business with them again. Thank you. :)
Really great machine does exactly what the description says and more. Easy to use and easy to follow instruction booklet. I haven’t done much sewing for some time and this machine is great to get me started again. Excellent customer service from GUR as well
Really pleased with my new machine. A huge upgrade on my 20yr old basic Janome but still simple enough to use without too much difficulty. Instruction book really helpful and easy to follow. Stitching is great and I don’t know how I ever managed without a needle threader! Have only used it to make a few small items so far - will be testing it out on curtain making in the next few weeks.
Very impressed by the excellent delivery service from GUR Sewing Superstore! We ordered the machine during lockdown when every sewing machine got sold immediately in front of your eyes. GUR had a great collection to choose from, clear descriptions and quick delivery. The Janome 5060QDC is easy to use and has a clear guidance. Love the hard top cover as it protects the machine better when tidying away when needed.
Very good machine, great for thick fabrics
I am a seamstress who does almost anything sewing wise. I found this machine to be able to cope with fine and heavy fabrics. I find it easy to use and smooth sewing action. I have found I use a decent amount of the stitches. All the accessories are useful especially the walking foot. I would recommend this machine to both new sewers and experienced.
As a beginner sewer I did quite a bit of research into what type of machine to buy with the hope that I would become a better sewer! I absolutely love this machine and all the things it does. I have managed to sew a few small items and have found it very easy and stress free. The number of different stitches available is phenomenal and the built in button holes are fab. This machine is very easy to use and as a beginner it has made things very easy, I particularly like the fact that I can slow the machine using the button on the front, brilliant for going round corners! All in all I would thoroughly recommend this machine and the service I have received from GUR sewing machines.
I am so delighted with my Jaguar DQS401 which arrived yesterday. I upgraded from a basic electric machine and was at first a little daunted by the thought of a computerised machine but it couldn’t be easier to operate and the instruction booklet is so clear. Ordering was super easy and communication during transit was wonderful giving an hour time slot for arrival. I would not hesitate to recommend both the Jaguar DQS401 and GUR Sewing for excellent service. Many thanks
First new sewing machine for 25 years. How they have come on! Great range of stiches. Good range of accessories inc. feet. Needle threader a joy as is start stop button. Not an expert sewer but loving this machine. Brilliant price and service from GUR.
Excellent service fast delivery fab item and best price well done will shop again
Excellent service and speedy delivery. I am very pleased with my Jaguar DQS 401. It is a lovely machine, the automatic needle threader is wonderful and worked second try (I have never used one). I will have not problem recommending Gur Sewing and shall certainly buy from them again. Many thanks to all at Gur Sewing.
I love it . It's so easy to use and sewn lots of items since my purchase. Its lovely and compact and light. Great buy.
Love the machine which is helping me re- find my enthusiasm for sewing and delivery was super fast. Less than24 hours from order. Huge thanks!
Very pleased with purchase. Great service and communication from GUR. It was a shame that the pressing mat was not available and would also suggest it might be useful to add a packet of bobbins to your 'offers' when purchasing a new Sewing Machine. Would happily buy products again from this company.
Brought this as a replacement for a machine I had had for 14 years. Love it, easy to use and a joy to use.
Not sure what to expect but impressed so far . Last domestic machine i had wandered all over the place on the table this one stays put. Nice stitch and everything just so really impressed so far. Hopefully sooner rather than later I will be ordering a jaguar overlock machine to complement the 403.i would have liked the all sing and dancing one (money is a bit tight at the moment but not dissatisfied with the one I got. Delivery fast .no complaints whatsoever regarding gur.👍👍👍
I'm very happy with my new Jaguar sewing machine. I'm by no means an expert, but find the machine very easy to manage and control, very easy to learn, reasonably quiet and capable of handing many different types of fabric. The needle threader really works, and the machine is generally very easy to thread and set up. I also find that I don't need the foot controller which makes the machine easier to use physically.
Had this machine for a month now and have really enjoyed using it. Very easy to use and the manual is very useful. Love my new machine and the service provided by gursewing. Thank you
This machine is so easy to set up and use, but don't let that make you think it is just for beginners. This machine has a multitude of functions and options which provide the operator a huge amount of control over all aspects of use. It allows flexibility across the board and isn't complicated for the sake of it. In my opinion, this machine is great whether you just want to sew a straight line or if you are embarking on a complex design project. I ordered the machine after the store had closed on the Friday of the Bank Holiday weekend, but despite this the machine was delivered quickly, with tracking updates along the way. I would also like to add that the advice and help I was given by GUR was second to none. They rang me back after I left a message - despite it being outside their opening hours. They took their time answering my queries and it was obvious that they were really knowledgeable, which gave me a great amount of reassurance. But in addition they were also really friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending GUR, as well as the Janome 360DC.
Perfect machine! Had to replace mine in a hurry and was torn between a few. This machine has all the stitches I required and the price was reasonable. I was not disappointed! Easy to use, professional stitching and the delivery was super fast. Very pleased overall.
Still trying to get to grips with all of the different things this machine can do. I was used to an industrial machine being a curtain maker. Up to now very pleased and can’t wait to try everything it can do. Should have ordered cottons at the same time because during lockdown I’m struggling to get hold of cottons. Can’t fault the delivery timescale as well.
Great service from GUR sewing machines. Good advice, quick response to queries and speedy delivery. I am very pleased with my new machine which replaces my 33 year old machine that was also from GUR! I recommend this company 100%.
I bought this new machine to replace an old 25 year old singer. Wow! Wishing I had upgraded sooner. It’s quiet and smooth and does much more than is really needed. I haven’t mastered all of the stitches yet and I’m not sure the lettering is as good as it seems but I would definitely pick this machine again.
Love it. Took a few goes to get the hang of all the features, but I would recommend it as a step up from the basic computerised model
Excellent replacement for my 30 year old previous machine. Will handle all I require of it and more. I was not looking to spend a fortune and this machine was well priced and has all the features that I was looking for. I did not need 100's of differing stitch choices or more than a basic number of ways to sew buttonholes. Wonderfully quiet to use and the extra wide table will be well used. I must emphasize that the needle up/needle down feature is a must! Very pleased with my purchase from GUR.
I am thrilled with my new sewing machine. I was a bit hesitant at first buying a machine online, without being able to try it out first, but I did my research and this machine fitted the bill and at a fantastic price too. It does everything I need it to and I am having a great time exploring the new features that my old machine (over 30 years old) didn't have. Free and speedy delivery were an added bonus. Many thanks, great service.
Great machine great price thanks
I have used this machine to make quilts, dolls clothes and fancy dress costumes. The machine has worked well using a variety of fabrics and thicknesses. I particularly like the variable speed especially when sewing difficult fabrics, ie. sequinned, netting, wadding, leather etc. My machine came with the quilt accessories and the feet are essential if intending to make quilts or do top stitching. You can do this with the machine feet included but the walking foot and open toe foot make this much easier. The machine is easy to use and the manual has clear instructions. The needle threader is a joy to use. The machine is quiet. The embroidery stitches provide endless opportunities to personalise garments and the instruction booklet gives clear guidance on how to combine patterns. Overall a machine that will suit beginners and experts.
Fabulous machine. My old machine had started playing up and I was looking for a change. After much research and comparison, I decided that the Janome was the machine for me. I'm thoroughly enjoying using it and have made several items since purchase.
This is a sophisticated and well-designed machine. It has many facilities which it does well. The machine is large but the construction is excellent.
This is an excellent machine with some great features. Have been using it for a few weeks now and love it. Easy to use and great value.
Still early days but I am delighted and now I’m using my new machine I wonder why it took me so long to upgrade. Quick and efficient delivery and a good price also appreciated
Janome 5060 QDC I made several phone calls and looked at lots of machines! I am happy to say I made the right choice. (With the help of a very patient salesman) I love this machine. I has everything I need & more. I also think the instruction manual is really good too. I am dyslexic and struggle with instructions. But I find this so easy to follow!
Great machine and easy to use
This arrived promptly and safely thanks to the wonderful staff at GUR I already have another sewing/embroidery machine, but wanted something a little more portable. I found this machine easy to use and it sews like a dream. The quality is very good. I would say that a new sewist would be able to use this machine easily and the more experienced would love it too.
Great Machine, easy to use. Made my sewing so much more enjoyable.
Ordereds this machine at 12.54 on Tuesday after studying the reviews decided this was the one for me to replace a 40+ old brother machine and a Lidl purchased singer could'nt believe it was delivered next morning at 9.15 brilliant service. The machine was easy to set up and is very similar to the brother machines but cheaper. It is has lovely even stitches can be used with or without the pedal which was a bonus for me as have problems with my foot. So far it is a lovely machine with plenty of stitches and buttonholes which is great can't fault it and the price is excellent.
