I bought one of the Singer Overlockers at Lidl last year. Excellent deal.

Any sewing experts on here please. Just looking at this for a possible give for the wife as she has been mentioning sewing machines for a while. With the price difference been so marginal which is the best one to go for and do they have different uses, had a look online but couldn't really make head nor tale of it. Great deal OP thanks.

Overlocker is for doing edges, sewing machine is for joining pieces together, she would need sewing machine first.

Yes you need the sewing machine. Overlockers are for binding raw edges and sewing knitwear for a more professional finish. If you get the overlocker, you'll need the the sewing machine too. overlockers are tricky to thread for a novice.

Yes, a sewing machine is what you need. For me an overlocker is a luxury, I've sewed all my life and decided at this price I could get one. Unless you do a lot of sewing with fabrics that need a professional edge, you don't need one as most sewing machines have various stitches to neaten edges.

My wife is into sewing, Bernina are the good ones. Showed her this and she says Singer are now Chinese rubbish.

Excellent machine. Bought one a few years ago for over £300 and sold on EBay for £180. Replaced with a Bernina but jumped to buy this at £119 when it was on offer last year. Never looked back.

Bought one last year and be prepared to queue or miss out! The sewing machines on offer are good too. Don't forget your threads as only a small amount will be on the machine, as it comes pre-threaded. Buy new spindles or use your own supply of cotton but you will need to tie any new cotton onto the existing and then pull the threads through the machine ( a lot easier than starting from scratch as very fiddly, really it is.... there's a reason why they give you pointed tweezers in the box). There is a video online for threading just in case.

Thanks for your advice much appreciated.

Singer is now just another brand name of a company that used to sell quality machines but now sells cheap inferior machines made in the far east and the quality has long disappeared.
If you want a value for money and also a quality sewing machine take a look at the John Lewis JL110 it's actually made by Janome and only costs £99.

I completely agree about the threading. I also took loads of photos of the threading before I pulled the new threads through. Overlockers are really tricky to thread. Lidl will have large spools of thread for sale too. They are okay for the overlockers but buy good quality thread and needles for the sewing machine otherwise you'll find the bobbin jams and you end up with a birds nest of thread under the needle plate all the time. New machines may need the tension adjusting, but make a note or take a photo of the original settings in case you need to go back to them.

Totall agree YippeeYiYo.

Another thing is that I purchased one of the clear sewing machine covers, with the blue piping, which are quite cheap from Ebay/Amazon (about £3.50 ish). Quite roomy so fits over the overlocker and keeps everything dust free. You can buy overlocker ones but very hard to come by and this is ok and matches my sewing machine.
#17
Hi , do you have to just queue for when the shop opens? Or is the deal valid all week? Many thanks
#18
My hubby went just before the shop opened and was first in queue in a line of women outside, and they all went straight for the over lockers and not the sewing machines apparently.
#19
So, this vs the JL110 for £99?

Just went and picked up the overlocker for mother's Christmas present.. Great price.. Believe Amazon is around 240..and singer site nearer 300. Fantastic deal.:D
Went to Abbey Wood store and they had around 30 of each on show.

The Jl110 Is definitely the best quality buy if you need a sewing machine and had to choose between the two.
But if you need an overlocker the Lidl Singer overlocker is a bargain.

Does anyone know if Lidls in either Frome, Street or Wells currently have overlockers in store?
#32
I brought the Singer sewing machine in October 2016 and when it went wrong called Singer to have a Very Rude man put the phone down on me twice. I called Customer Service and they were very helpful but told me they DO NOT REPAIR machines from Lidl and said that they do not use top quality parts & advised me to contact Lidl.
I am now returning machine for full refund.
