Brother, timeless classic
All Sewing Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Love doing embroidery and these patterns will help a novice like me.
Heat for the deal - thanks for sharing, but can someone explain the need for this pattern?
Fantastic starter machine. Buy without hesitation!
Thanks op, the missus was on the lookout for 1 for a while now, good price.
Thanks op. Just ordered. Been looking for a decent sewing machine at a decent price
Seems extraordinary value.
£4.99 https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/Non-Food-Offers.htm?articleId=9862 How does this compare?
30 piece set in home bargains 99p
Very similar kit in bargain buys for £1.
I've bought this in poundshops! No idea if they still sell them but I'm willing to bet places like home bargains will have it for less than a fiver. Also who calls a thread ripper a disconnect device?
Woah £27.40 RRP all the other clones are around this price £5.99 already and this has only been listed on Amazon today!
Looks like a nice box set, but £4.50 standard delivery under £20 put me off. My nearest store is 20 miles away, but you might be more lucky!
Bought this instore the other day. There new two lots of scissors included which are actually not bad. Well worth the £10
£10 you say? (annoyed) In Lidl coming up next Thursday something called Crelando Sewing Kit for £4.99 (highfive)
Loads more on the site. Half price sewing patterns, sewing accessories, Dylon plus many more. Hot from me.
If I did more sewing I'd get that kit, it does seem good value
I was about to say the same that advert is annoying and it keeps popping up.
I bought one, earlier. Had to return it. Useless
Waste of money.
Thank you for your input, its much appreciated.
I can highly recommend this brother embroidery machine and this company. Ask for Russell if you phone up, he’s the boss and incredibly helpful and knowledgable, and best of all he wants happy customers and won’t push the most expensive model on to you if you don’t need it. https://www.sewingmachines.co.uk/products/brother-innov-is-955-sewing-and-embroidery-machine/255 Although I’d be tempted to spend that little bit extra and get this one with the bigger embroidery space https://www.sewingmachines.co.uk/products/brother-innov-is-1250-a-grade-sewing-embroidery-machine/193 That one is a-grade but I’ve bought about 5 machines from them and never had a problem. Actually I did have a problem with one machine, which they collected the next day and it was fixed and back with me within a couple of days. Which reminds me - pro tip - if you buy a sewing machine online, always keep the box in case the machine needs to go back for any reason as then it stays safe in proper packaging.
bargainsmakemehappy im after a embroidery machine but its to expensive so i'm saving up yet. im looking at one for £900.
I bought one of these and it was broken after 2 days. Not sure it's worth it!
Couldn’t agree more. Don’t waste your money - you can do a better job and save yourself a lot of hassle with a needle and thread compared to this.
Honestly, don't bother. Wait for a deal on an actual sewing machine or get a secondhand one. This will put you off sewing for life and is so pants you probably couldn't make any pants with it!
Has bad reviews
Are these the type of sewing machines which use only one thread? Which can just be unraveled by pulling one end of the thread? And are basically useless
Yeah my mother and wife took time to look into these and both got a Janome as the opinions seemed they are now better than Singer.
I'd personally go for Janome over Singer . It's more reliable.
That's one of best brands. I bought my wife same model 5 years ago from JL. She's extremely happy!!!
I'm certainly not an expert, others will probably be more helpful than me, but I've done a bit of research. Top 2 brands to buy are Janome or Brother. Singer was apparently bought out a while back and now it's not the brand it used to be - cheap parts and lots of breaking down (is what I've been told). The knowledge in the John Lewis haberdashery section is amazing, they're so helpful and from their impartial recos I definitely decided on a Janome.
I am not familiar with this brand. How does it compare with the brand singer
thanks love the Christmas skyline
You must have made the nice list if father Christmas was so good to you... ;) and I'm delighted you found it a magical pressie.. That was easy to use :)
I asked Father Christmas for one of these, and just tried it. So easy to use :)
Glad you got it sorted :)
Yes, I emailed them and they said that my order was stuck in the system and I have just received it.Thanks
Maybe drop then a wee message for an update... i'm sure they rarely see the volume ordered this post must have produced. So either missing in post or that's the reason for the hold up.
Yeah, others may not find it, but my local still had a few. Going to read some reviews...thanks :)
The model is 6180. Looking online it is exactly the same as the Singer Starlett 6680. It comes with the extension table. Fantastic machine and brilliant price. Not sure if you will find one in a Lidl store now as the offer started 2 weeks ago.
Can't see this on the Lidl site now but saw it in store earlier - telling someone about it..does anyone know what model the Singer Sewing Machine is, please? There's not great information in this post, I'm afraid.
Thanks, updated the prices in the title.
I bought both the overlocker and sewing machine this morning - not opened them yet though. This old guy and his wife were in front of me when the doors opened. He wouldn't let me past him, kept dodging side to side as he walked so they got to the machines first then stood in front of the display in such a way that I couldn't take a machine until he had secured one for the wife. The funny part is there must have been about 40 of each machine. Made me chuckle. Can I just point out that the overlocker is £139 and the sewing machine is £129, the OP header makes it look like it is both machines for £139. Fantastic bargain anyway as the cheapest I have found the sewing machine alone is double the price. Not managed to find anything on the overlocker apart from Youtube videos all dated 31st August 2017 so as OP says, it may be a new model
i got a silvercrest on about 3-4 years ago out of lidl she has never missed a beat with me im not a heavy user made a few sets of curtains and general fixing clothing i think it was 89£ back then and im happy with it
Hi luckyf, yes I've made summer dresses with this machine and it was enjoyable as machine so much easier than old singer. This machine wasn't so happy on some super heavy duty work, ie sewing two layers gortex fabric with padding. If you're looking for heavy duty machine my sister swears by Toyota super jeans machine
I've had this model for a couple of years. I've had some issues with thread snapping and it takes a bit of time to get used to tension adjuster. The power cable is shorter than my older singer so if it's a gift maybe get an extension lead at the same time. Good range of stitches and attachments , eg changeable feet. Can't remember if it's got blanking disk enclosed for embroidery. All in all its a great machine with wide range of functions at a good price. Suggest you use gutterman thread rather than the spool of threads also often on offer at Lidl at same time as machines.
I got a singer sewing machine a few months back to take up sewing, and i really love the machine. So easy to use, seems very good quality and very good value. I don't know about this one, but the one i got is really lightweight, yet seem very stable and sturdy. I would definitely recommend singer sewing machines.
It was from a different seller which has sold out. Shame I wanted a heavy duty sewing machine to make sofa cushions :(
Seems to have jumped back up!
£189.99 in my basket?
Thanks. Ordered a beautiful sewing box for half price.
Awesome thank you Boynamedsue
