Months ago, I bought this combo serger +coverstitch from and i have to say i really really love it! It was a headache in the decision making because i wish to get both serger and coverstitch but i only have enough space for one more machine. Then come the reviews of people owning a combo saying they are too lazy to switch over due to the troublesome threading and advised to not waste money and get a good serger instead since coverstitch is only a good to have (mainly for knits). Very thankful for the lady at ghimsoon who patiently taught me how to thread and let me practise switching over and over until I could do it all by myself! Now my sewing is really a breeze with my b48 esp sewing the knits! Just within a hour completed a pair of pants for the little one!

Trustworthy and knowledgable. I was sending through enquiries into midnight and the kind Carousell person replied me still. I received my machine within a day and had free training in my home. Would love to deal with them again!

Received superb service from Alex and his father! They let me try a couple of overlocker to have a feel of what i really need out from the machine. Uncle also patiently teach me and allow me to try hands on how to thread the overlocker. Prior to me going, I was kind of determined at getting an auto overlocker (Juki MO1000) but after trying out how to thread the machine manually, it is not so difficult after all. In the end, i bought the Bernette Funlock B48 which is a 2 in 1 overlocker and coverstich machine. Happy with the purchase and am glad that i made the trip there to try out :) They are also not pushy and Alex kept stressing that i should choose something that i need. I also bought a sewing table from them which is superb for keeping both my machines in one place. It also allows me to stow away the table when not in use. Overall, happy and satisfied!
