Finally I’ve had enough, having spent hours and hours trying to work out what’s wrong with the Lumina overlocker, threading and re-threading it more times than I cared to count.

At the end of 2015, I’ve decided to buy another sewing machine after owning the Brother BM-3600 for 10 years. I’ve been thinking about getting another machine for the past 3 years or so.
