Hasn’t missed a beat

published

I have owned this overlocker for a number of years and it still going strong. Much easier to thread the lower looper than the model below it due to being able to flick out a particular hook to get to it. Well worth the extra money from the model below just for that feature. I’ve sewn everything from swimwear to curtains on this machine and I’ll always happy with the results.

This really is a good serger

published

This is my "go-to-sewing-group" machine. It does a great job, it is easy to transport. It is easy to use. It is easy to thread. NO: it is not the best overlocker I own but it has never failed me. I would recommend this model to anyone. I am not the original owner of this machine but, when I had it serviced, the technician told me it was a very good machine.

Does the job

published

Upgraded to this overlocker on advice that it is much better than what I had. It is easier to thread (but still a pain) and for what I needed it for, I really can't say that it is that much better. I use it mainly for basic overlocking on light weight materials and it does do a great job. I could not do without it.

Wouldn't recommend it. Ok for beginner!

published

I have been disappointed when changing the stitching to rolled hem as the plate has now become loose and cannot be tightened, this has caused the needle to break. I had it repaired and still it's the same. I found my older 3 thread machine (20yrs old, to be designed better) I am currently looking to upgrade. I will be doing my research, when it comes to looking at the quality of the make

Great value for money, easy to use and scores brownie points with the ladies in the office when I can do things they don't have time for.
It is fairly idiot proof...I am a bloke and I can use it
Threading the thing , I had to read the manual

HI I live in Southport area, I bought a Janome 644D have had it a few years, and hardly used it. I need to use it now, but am unsure how, and also the adjustments of the stitches. I need help or a few lessons. Does anyone know as to where I can get some lessons?
Thanks Louisa

YouTube has quite a few videos. You could also get in touch with the dealer where you purchased it, they may have classes...can't be sure, but would be worth asking. Good luck ;-)

Outside of your dealer I would suggest YouTube videos on how to use an overlocker.

any comments on 644d overlocker compared to 744d. which one is better ?

1 answer
Woody
Woody

The 744D is a newer version of the 644D; the most significant difference is that the 744D has a free-arm. What the free arm does is allow you to remove a plate and serge around cylindrical areas like cuffs, trouser legs, bag tops, etc. more easily. Just my opinion but I hope it helps.

Is this machine relatively quiet?? I have heard some other brands are noisy!!

It's definitely much quieter than most overlockers, moreso if you use it on a non-slip mat. You can buy a Janome mat at the dealer but I've used foam-backed carpet and found it excellent. Another thing I use is the non-slip placemats or the non-slip sheeting that is used under floor rugs and use these under all of the machines. The 644D is a fantastic overlocker and never misses a beat with perfect stitching every time. ;-)
