I bought this machine one day and it arrived the next day. Amazing service. I have made a jersey t shirt with it and it looks great even if I do say so myself! It was not as difficult to use as I imagined and comes pre-threaded which is a great boon. The DVD was not any help as I don’t have a DVD player - perhaps a pdf maybe better. I absolutely love it and have no regrets in buying it especially as it comes with most of the extras you’d ever need. Thanks.

I couldn't believe the speed of delivery. From making the decision to buy an automatic overlocker, to researching the best for my needs, to placing the order with Sewing Machine Sales, to unpacking and reading the instruction book - less than 24 hours. And I am delighted. This was the right decision. The Juki is everything I expected, with the strength and reliability of an industrial machine, and the neatness and portability of the domestic machine I previously owned. And, of course it threads itself! Hooray. Thank you so much for your great service.

Excellent service, really prompt delivery, ordered 5pm Friday afternoon and it arrived on Sunday morning, a day earlier than expected! Well packaged, have only done test with it so far but seems to work really well.

I've had two previous sergers (beginners' favourite Brother 1034D and a heavy metal Frister&Rossmann) but this Juki absolutely blows them out of the water! In the 4 months since it has arrived it has handled everything from tissueweight viscose jersey to upholstery tweed flawlessly with no need to even touch the tension adjustment dials. At first I was a bit worried the manual was a bit brief compared to my old ones, but now I realise it's because there's very little to troubleshoot with this machine! As the previous reviewer noted, once you've mastered threading it, you're basically set.

Easy ordering process, well packaged, arrived quickly. I did research which one I wanted to buy, the good with this is that it comes with Ext table, trim trap and spare feet. Most overlockers don't. I havnt tested it out fully yet, just tried a test piece but it looks good to me.
Review by Carolyn
I am delighted with my Brother overlocker. It is so easy to use. I am even more delighted with the service I received from sewingmachinesales. They accepted without question the return of the overlocker I originally bought but found too difficult to use. They replaced it with the Brother and even carried it to the car for me! Thank you for your excellent service.

This is my first overlocker and I could not be happier with it, I have been using it for 6 months now with no issues. It is easy to thread, needs very little adjustment, does a superb job every time.
Review by Lynne S
I love my new Brother 2104d. It’s so easy to use and thread compared to my old one. The service was second to none. It was delivered when they said it would be.
Review by Linda H
This is the second machine I’ve bought through Sewing Machine Sales and I’m very happy with the whole process except the postage which is free unless you live in Scotland. This needs to be sorted! The quality of the machines is exceptional so would be happy to rate them highly on that alone.
Review by Sandy W
This is my first overlocker and I am so surprised that it came pre-threaded with some spools of thread, and this helps me figure out how to get it on. The overlocker is quiet when in use compared with the one I used in sewing classes before. The delivery is also speedy. Thank you very much.
