    Help needed!

    I am looking at buying a serger machine. I have never had one. My question is which one do you recommend? I am excited to get one now that I have been looking at them.

    I recently got the Brother 1034D for a basic model. So far it works fine and I have had no problems with it.

    A serger will last you a long time! So buy the best one that you can afford! I am still using the same one that I purchased 32 years ago.It's on it's 3rd. motor and going strong! It's been through 5 kids, 16 grandkids, and 5 greatgrands so far! Which ever machine you choose, just remember to keep it well serviced and maintained. Mawluv

    Baby Lock with the burst of air threader.What a nice machine.Won't sit there like allot of sergers because of threading problems. Like Mawluv said get the best you can afford.

    Toni C is right that if you can afford one that threads easily, you will be happier.

    I have Babylock Proline my husband bought 15 or 15 years ago. To this date, it is still going. I love having a serger, made a lot of napkins, doll clothes etc.

    Whatever you get, make sure it's a self-threader!

    I recommend one of the Baby Lock self threaders. They are wonderful! I bought the Evolution earlier this year and I love it.

    I agree with everyone, I have a Baby Lock with the self-threading feature and it is so nice. However, if you can only afford a basic serger, the most important feature to me would be self-adjusting tension. My first serger didn't have that and I was forever breaking thread and having to rethread (and no self-threading). Rarely do I break a thread with the self-adjusting tension.
