Serger shopping

By December 14, 2011 ,

I’m looking at getting a serger for my birthday in January and was wondering if you had any suggestions.

Here’s some info and expectations

  • Needs to be able to serge 2 layers of jeans (I don’t think I’m gonna get taller any time soon, and the save the bottom seam hem method is my favorite).
  • I have never serged before, my mom had a Babylock for a long time from my Figure Skating days but it recently bit the dust.
  • Something easy to use would be nice, all those threads look pretty scary!
  • Looking for something mid-grade that will hold up with sewing jeans.

So if anyone has any suggestions for a mid-grade serger or any serging experiences I’m all ears. (Serge nightmares with happy endings only please!)

And if you’re ‘serge-curious’ look for the beginning of my Serge-ventures in January!

At the moment I’m starting to look at the one step up Brother

  1. I don't own one myself but everyone says don't buy it from Walmart. It's cheap in price and quality. Beyond that, I am no help at all though. Keep us posted...
