Prompt and efficient delivery. This fantastic Janome overlocker was given to me as a present from a family member (I chose & ordered it myself and they reimbursed me). As I had never used an overlocker before, I was a bit apprehensive about threading it with my new cones of coloured thread. However, with the clear instructions on the DVD plus the instruction manual, I was able to thread it after just two attempts. The lower looper is the most challenging to thread but the tweezers help with this. I also used a little torch to help me see the last stages of threading more clearly. The lower looper itself has two holes, back then front for the thread to pass through. The upper looper has only one hole at the front. I followed the colour coded thread guides on the machine (very handy) and also counted each step of the threading process: the lower looper has 11 steps; upper looper has 9; right needle 8 and left needle 7 steps, so I just count as I go along. I also used a different colour thread for each of the four stages of threading with black T-shirt fabric to practice on; this helped me to clearly see how each thread looked and what needed adjusting such as tensions. I now make a note of all the tension settings for each type of fabric used. I also learnt to adjust the cutting width as the stitching was beyond the fabric edge (p.12 of manual), - I get perfect stitches now. Having a good quality overlocker makes the whole experience an exciting adventure and I love using it.
Very prompt service. Arrived within timed slot. Very nice machine easy colour coded threading and very smooth operation. Very good value for money. Thank you
Lovely compact machine. Smooth operation. Overlocks efficiently. Am very pleased with purchase and quality of item. Easy to thread, except lower looper may require a little practice.
An excellent machine sews very smooth in its operation it has the Janome quality that I expected. Very easy to use and thread giving a high quality finish.
This a good quality machine from Janome. Having a Janome sewing machine for many years this overlocker has the same high quality
Arrived all threaded and ready to use. The additional DVD is excellent for those who have never used an overlocker before, lots of clear instructions. I have set mine up on my sewing table, it doesn't take up much space. An excellent machine for the price, easy to use. very pleased with my purchase thanks!
Really easy to set up and use - I was a little apprehensive with the threading but clear instructions made it fine! Very quiet and smooth to operate. Thank you for your advise.
This little gem is worth its price together with the FREE Accessory Kit. Being so compact its easy to move around, & storage is no problem if youre lacking of space. The threading parts are colour coded; to save time in re-threading, I simply joined the new spool to the ones that came with it, pulled it through the loop holes.
Good performance, good for everyday sewing & easy to follow DVD instructions, am happy with this purchase.Thank you!
