Re: If you own a serger, is it worth it?

Worth every penny! I bought mine from a small local shop. Anytime I have questions or problems I can just give them a call. Remember you get what you pay for with them though.

Re: If you own a serger, is it worth it?

I got mine for my birthday. It was a basic one from Babylock, that you have to manually thread. I had the store thread it for me, rather than doing it myself.

I'm still learning how to use it. But from what I can tell, it makes sewing t-shirt faster than doing it on a sewing machine. So I'm slowly feeling the love for it. But I'm starting to feel guilty since I think I would be ignoring my sewing machine soon..hahahha

Re: If you own a serger, is it worth it?

Big, huge YES!!! I use it just as much as my sewing machine, maybe a little more. I got the Brother 1034D over 6 years ago so I didn't make a huge investment and it is still working great. I use it to finish edges on just about everything and for construction where I can.

Re: If you own a serger, is it worth it?

My serger is my most used machine, it's a Brother 1034D. It didn't cost a lot, I bought it on Ebay for under $200 and it works beautifully. I couldn't do without it. Something to consider is what you prefer to sew. I like sewing with knits, my preferred projects are clothing. My mom has a lovely Bernina computerized serger that's worth well over $3000 that just sits because she's a home goods/quilting type.

I am thinking about getting a serger too. To help offset the cost I may sell my Baby Lock Quest Plus Quilting sewing machine and keeping my Baby Lock Decorators Choice for when an actual sewing machine is good. I just do not want to regret doing it.

What do you ladies make with your sergers?

Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.

I make clothes so the serger has been a god send in finishing seams & just in general construction.
