Review by LoopyLou
An excellent machine, very easy to use. I would recommend getting the clear foot which is an optional accessory but apart from that, I love the machine. Creates beautiful various cover stitches. I am looking forward to creating many garments and making alterations easy too when shortening t-shirts and similar items.
Review by Katie D
I am so impressed by this overlocker. It came pre-threaded with some spools of thread to get started. I’ve never used an overlocker before but it’s simple to use and so far I love it.
Review by Sandy S
This is my first overlocker and I’m very pleased with it. I was worried I wouldn’t get on with one, but I’ve made two dresses already. Very quick delivery, couldn’t ask for more. Happy customer.

Review by Karen C
This is the 1st ever overlocker I have owned. Did a lot of on line research before picking this model. So delighted, it is a cracking machine, so easy to use, instructions are clear and concise. I haven’t re threaded it yet but doesn’t look too difficult !! Shopping experience was good - I phoned and spoke to a nice gentleman , who knew his product well. Very quick delivery, overall a very positive experience would highly recommend both the Janome overlocker and this company .
Review by LucyG
I am LOVING this machine! I was interested in getting an overlocker for better finishing of seams, working with stretchy fabrics etc. and finally decided on this Brother machine. It arrived the very next day and I was using it just a couple of hours later. It's my first ever overlocker, but I'd read and learned a lot before getting it. I've found re-threading a doddle, following the instructions printed on the machine. So far, absolutely delighted with it and the results.
Review by Daniela Munro
My too this is my second overlock. I would not buy an overlock that does not have air to help thread it.

Have to say this overlocker is so much easier to use than expected. It’s been a lifesaver for me, especially with stretch fabrics and fleece. Really happy with it!
Review by Flo C
Great entry level machine - easy to use and straightforward to thread. I chose Elna because it's a reputable brand. Wonderful fast delivery - my machine came the next day and I was sewing straight away!
Review by Helen Smith
I would like to recommend sewing machines direct for their extremely prompt service. I ordered day before receiving my Janome cover stitch Machine . I also ordered a couple of foot accessories for the machine and again very fast service. I am just about to order an overlocker machine. I have researched lots of companies but because of my experience with this supplier I shall place my order with this company. 100% recommend
