Exactly why did the Jaguar DQS403SE sewing machine catch our eye?

Perfect for patchworking and quilting!

This time we’re spilling the beans on why we love the Jaguar DQS 403QSE sewing machine – and it’s giving us a problem.

There are so many features that we like, we couldn’t restrict the list to “our top 10 features”, because there are way more than that! Somehow “27 reasons we love it” just doesn’t sound as catchy. So we’ll go for the edited highlights kind of approach…

Thinking of patchworking and quilting? Then read on…

This wonderful machine contains all of the essential features that will allow you to use straight-line quilting or even free motion stippling to create incredible effects on your projects – producing excellent results with a high quality finish.

Who’s it suited for? After much deliberation, we came up with quite a fitting description:-

The easy access control buttons on the front of the Jaguar DQS 403QSE allow you to select your stitches and the arrows allow you to vary stitch length and stitch width – on the whole, a great sewing machine for crafts, dressmaking, soft furnishings and alterations around the home.

Edited highlights

  • Maximum sewing speed of 700 stitches-per-minute.
  • Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer.
  • The internal skeleton of the sewing machine has a rigid support that holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
  • Easily change presser feet without the use of a screwdriver.
  • Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
  • 60 built in stitches.
  • Fully automated 4 styles of one step buttonholes.
  • Start/stop button, machine can be used with or with out foot control.
  • Tie-off decorative stitches with just a push of a button; with 4 tiny tacking stitches the start and end of the pattern is reinforced, ensuring quality stitching and prevents unravelling.
  • The extra-high presser foot lifter offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.
  • This machine provides professional results and easy access to cuffs, collars, trouser bottoms and other difficult-to-reach areas.

There are many more features that you’ll want to have a go with.

New sewing machine focus – the 10 reasons we love the Jaguar DQS403SE

Perfect for patchworking and quilting!

In this review we’re having a look at the brand new Jaguar DQS 403QSE sewing machine, which is fast becoming a favourite of many here. 

Although it’s described as an “entry level machine” it is in fact rather more sophisticated than that, but is still remarkably easy to use – and thread of course!

Our 10 favourite DQS403SE sewing machine features

There are so many, it’s been really hard to pick out only ten – let alone get them in an order of preference. But after a couple of weeks of enjoyable playing around, these are some of our favourite capabilities (in no particular order).

  1. Direct stitch selection – no need to search for a stitch anymore, simple input your stitch number and start sewing.
  2. Start / stop function – to allow you to sew without the foot control, this makes the sewing of long seams, free motion and buttons easy.
  3. 13 variable needle positions – 4 top stitching perfect for sewing zips.
  4. External drop feed – ideal for freehand embroidery and stippling helping you to create your own patchwork and quilting projects.
  5. Easy to use speed slider control – giving you full control over the speed of your machine.
  6. Needle up / down – touch a button to set your needle to automatically stop up or down in the fabric for pivoting, appliqué and more.
  7. Extra presser foot lift – allows easy sewing of thick fabrics.
  8. Top loading jam proof bobbin – including a see through view slide plate allowing you to see when bobbin needs to be changed.
  9. Slim free arm – for working on tubular items such as cuffs, trouser legs and more.
  10. Accessory storage space – lots of space in the free arm extension platform. Keep things tidy…

Entry level? We don’t think so….
