I think I might be getting an overlocker for Christmas :) . I just want something simple, I do a lot of stuff with knits. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!

I have a Janome 9200D from John Lewis. It's £230 (gone up £30 since I bought mine) and I love it!! Most of my sewing is with knits.

Thanks TF, was hoping you would be along! Some of the reviews suggest it's complicated to thread - do you have any problems?

I think all overlockers are complicated to thread! It comes ready threaded, you can just tie your new thread to the old thread to change it. I did that at first, but now I've learnt to do it myself. It comes with a DVD, or there are videos on YouTube of how to do it. It only takes me a couple of minutes to rethread it now.
