    Getting a new serger! Any suggestions?

    My old serger has bit the dust and DH said I should buy a new one. Any suggestions?

    Babylock or Juki. Stay away from Walmart.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    I have the Bernina 1300MDC (got a great deal used), it is made by Juki and has the same stitches as the Juki 735 and uses the same threading diagrams. Think about what you did with your recently demised model and what features you wish you had. Coverstitch/not? ect. Then go sit down and try some models out at a dealer before you buy. Have them show you threading and ask about lessons/support too. A lot of people like the Babylock sergers for the ease of threading, but I don't find mine difficult at all once I learned how. But then, I took classes at the Bernina dealer and had help to learn.

    I just got a Juki MO 644D from allbrands.com last month. I am officially over my fear of sergers with the purchase of this machine. It was easy to learn how to thread, the instructions were wonderful and it actually works.

    I love my Brother 1034D serger - I use it all the time and it just keeps on tickin'. (I think it's made by the same factories that make the Babylock) Mine's about 3 years old, now.

    It's the easiest thing in the world to thread - and only 2-3 seconds to switch back and forth between rolled hems and regular overlock stitching.

    Less than $200 at walmart.com - http://www.walmart.com/ip/Brother-Se...-1034D/1723621

    I also have the brother 1034d and love it. (it's definitely not made by Babylock though, each company makes their own sergers.) it's under $190 on amazon now.

    Baby Lock for sure. The theading system is amazing and is a no brainer!
