Product Reviews

So far so good.

I received my machine 4days ago and have only been able to spend a bit of time with it so far, but it seems pretty intuitive and easy to use. Delivery information and time was excellent, ordered on Wednesday afternoon and it arrived on Friday afternoon. The only reason I have given it four stars instead of five is that some of the instructions are badly translated and a bit tricky to follow.

Sew far so good. Haven't done much yet but feels an OK machine.

great machine

Having not used a machine for a number of years and this one being so much more sophisticated than I have used previously, it took a bit of getting use to! It didn't seem to like me using the satin foot on silky material, but once I put the zigzag or straight metal foot on it was fine. Still to use all the features, but so far I am impressed. Great service from The Ironing Press Company and all the "extras" where great, plenty of thread to test the pattern stitches!

Best sewing machine ever

Sewing machine 404

Thrilled to bits with this sewing machine, tried most of the stitches and it works a dream. Been sewing for years and fancied a machine that could embroider and this one is perfect, it's not too advanced but enough for what I wanted. The automatic sew function is brilliant, and I mastered the needle threader straight away. All in all I am delighted with it and so glad I bought it, for the price it's a bargain. Ironing press was excellent, next day delivery, cannot praise them enough.

Verry good

By Eva Maria Fischer on 14-Jul-2017

Sewing just got more interesting

As a relative newbie to machine sewing, the 404 has opened the door and my eyes to the possibilities for an inexperienced sewer. The speed control is at the moment my fovourite feature, it just makes practicing so much easier. The plethora of available stitches is also fun. I can certainly see this machine taking me forward for years to come.

Fantastic sewing machine

My mum bought me this sewing machine 4 years ago as a Christmas present, I use this machine regularly because of my craft. It's very strong machine, and I'm very pleased with this one. It's a strong machine and it's capable of sewing heavy duty because have a strong motor and iron parts, and it's not light.I use this machine to sew handbags, purses, cosmetic bags, and sew beautifully!I definitely can recommend this machine for all kind of users, not just beginners.Easy to clean, easy to sew, beautiful stitches, strong and quiet!

Love all the designs

Absolutely thrilled with this machine. Purchased as a treat and it does everything it says. Had some difficulty with self threading needle, had to drop the needle down in the holder so it works properly. Love all the designs, has three speeds and can go peddle free. Easy to load bobbin. Bleeps so you can't do things wrong. Wouldn't recommend it for its alphabet/numbers, they are a bit harsh. Fancy stitching is nice. Excellent value for money. Came with a load of threads which have been a great bonus. Have used it on free quilting (something I haven't done before) and once I get a bit more confident it is certainly capable of what I would need. Would recommend if you want a first quilting machine.

Sewing Machine 404 put the joy back into my sewing

This is my first menu driven sewing machine. My old FristerRosssman is 41 years old. I have been sewing for 56 years or so and have had my own sewing bussiness for 40 of those. I have recently retired and this machine was my treat! My machine was delivered 3 weeks ago and since then I have been having fun. I never had time for experimenting with embroidery stitches before.I have successfully made broidere engIaise edging. The choices of designs opens up endless possibilities.This machine makes a wide variety buttonholes at the press of a button.It's the easiest machine to thread.You only have to use the foot control if you want to, I haven't used it yet, the speed control on the machine is excellent, especially if you have arthritis (as I have).The snap on feet are great (never had this feature before).The goodie bag which came with the machine has been handy and of good quality. I particularly like the serging foot and the walking foot.The only down sides are niggles really. The bobbin winder can sometimes over fill. You have to but an empty biro or tube over the bobbin window to make a secondspool holder for turn needle sewing.And finally the bobbin tension needed some adjustment at the beginning.

I love this machine. The embroidery is basic but for the money the machine is excellent. I thought some of the listed accessories were missing when the machine was delivered, so I contacted the seller who got back to me straight away and told me that they were packed inside. I did feel a little silly for not looking first. Excellent service and machine.

By Rachel Welsh on 21-Sep-2016

Great machine and very good value for money

So far I am very impressed with this machine. It is very easy to operate and I was switching between various stiches in no time at all. It is excellent value and I am very impressed with it. I would advise reading through the instructions to familiarise yourself with all the buttons and the machines abilities before starting. I would definitely recommend this machine for those who are upgrading their basic machine for something that will provide various stitches for every requirement. I am looking forward to many happy hours of sewing endless combinations and possibilities.

Love my New Machine!

My Jaguar 097 is my first overlocker but I need not to have worried, it is a great buy and excellent value. I have had no problems with threading it or setting up, it is all clearly explained in the manual and I took a Craftsy class to help too. Easy to use, compact, well-equipped and well made machine. If you have any doubts just go for it, you won't be disappointed.

Quality Blind Hem finish, now takes us seconds to shorten trousers, with no stitches showing, I just wish I had purchased this model years ago as the cheaper Chinese models don’t work anywhere near as well...

By Cheshire Oaks Outlet on 02-Jun-2017

Really happy with this machine

I absolutely ADORE this machine!!! I now prefer it to my sewing machine which is really saying something! When it first arrived I felt very nervous however, it came pre-threaded first of all, which is a massive help. Then when I watched the dvd that comes with it, it takes you every tiny step through the process of threading it and I managed to thread it correctly the first time. There are also clear coloured guides for each thread which really helps! It feels a very robust easy to use machine. I have since used this for work literally every day and love it. It is very fast! Can’t wait to try extra feet. The Canvas bag and Coats thread was a bonus.

By E Fischer on 30-May-2017

I love it!

Really easy to use. Sturdy machine. I have made a king-size quilt with no problems. Lovely stitch selection which are easy to select and use. 1 step Button holes and buttons are really easy!! I love it!!

By K Tee on 05-May-2017

so happy

I was recommended to spend at least double this on a decent overlocker but after reading the reviews and specs i went for this one, and I love it. It came yesterday,2 days before expected which is amazing for north scotland. It has very clear instructions and is ready to use out of the box. I really wanted a machine that is easy to use, versatile, opens up to allow easy maintenance as this is the only issue i have with my new brother sewing machine. It is weighty and made with metal parts not plastic which was my worry and the accessories included are really good. this was definately the right choice for me with the feed differential as i work with fine silk as well as fur,tweed and leather. Time will tell how long it lasts but for now i am very impressed indeed for the price this is just amazing

Happy customer

Purchased 10 of these for our ladies sewing club, and would really recommend the Jaguar 596 to anyone, a real easy to use, beautiful machine, Button holing a breeze. Came with full, clear instructions. Even 80 years found it easy to use. Top quality product, everyone can sew really easily with these machines, so well worth the money. Very pleased with our purchases.

By Zayis Raanon Ladies Club on 22-Apr-2017

By vialli25 on 21-Apr-2017

Highly recommended

This is my first overlocker. I must say it's so easy to thread. It's very well made. It comes with additional feet so you can do a lot with this machine. The instructions are very clear to understand. I highly recommend this overlocker.

By J. Marshall on 13-Mar-2017

A work horse

I bought this machine as a beginner, not expecting a lot given its price, however this machine has pleasantly surprised me. This machine has no problem quilting, sewing jeans or general everyday sewing. The machine comes with a wide range of feet allowing you to be very creative. Very easy to use and just generally a great machine, I wouldn't change this for the world now! Plenty of extras which were really useful!

Super Mega Steam Ironing Press 80cm

Outstanding Pressing Machine

Wow - this is one fantastic product - perfect for the 3 teenage boys I have to iron for each week - pulverises the skinny jeans creases, immaculate crease in shirt sleeves and razor sharp on school trousers, sports kit done in about 5 minutes flat (no contest versus this iron) and the bottom steam function is superb to get pesky creases out of the school blazers and hoodies - give them good 20 seconds steam and sorted - can't speak highly enough of this if you have heavy ironing workload and like immaculate ironing standards.

I only wish I had purchased this before now, it's made light work and saved lots of time. I wash and iron all the the table cloths we use in our catering business at our local club, for once i didn't have to stand for a few hours pressing them all. I would recommend the mega press to anyone. Thank you.
