  • Ouuuuups ...............

    Went to Lidl to get two tubs of yoghurt and came out with a Singer Overlocker

    My overlocker has been discontinued for about 10 years and it's a pig to thread. Last time I used it the bottom thread broke so had to try and rethread it, do you think I could do it ?!. Tried every which way and it just wouldn't pull the last bottom thread up. Had a word with the service people when they did my sewing machine and a full service would be getting on for £60 plus parts so have been debating whether it was worth it and looking at a replacement. Seemed so extravagant to get a new one but one reason I stopped sewing was not having the overlocker.

    Saw the Singer one advertised the last time Lidl had it, but they were all sold in the first hour of trading. So bless him Pete bought it for me this morning

    Better the mending done now LOL

    Of course, you have no excuse to put off the sewing now.

      Ye gods do people really pay £496.22 plus £5.88 for a padded bag for your overlocker !!!! ah, but it is on wheels.

      Think I will go for the one at £22 inc delivery, it's only to keep the dust out.

              It has a great write up and reviews all over the net and definitely the cheapest offer for this model. I'm an occasional sewer compared to most crafters in here but I really missed using one when I did sew.
