    I am thinking about getting a serger. I like to piece tops but prefer to sleep under down (usually give away my quilts or save them for who knows what!), so have made two duvet covers and borrowed a friend's serger to finish the seams AFTER sewing them on my old Elna SU.
    I understand some sergers seam and serge at the same time. Sounds like that would be a great time saver!!!
    So what do you think and what serger do you recommend?
    Thanks for your input.

    BABYLOCK It is the easiest one to use. The loopers are threaded by a puff of air. Love mine.

    I was in a serger class several years ago where there were many different kind of sergers being used. Everyone who didn't have a Babylock was wishing that they did...hope this helps with your decision.

    I have an antique Baby Lok (1982), it's not as fancy as the modern ones, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I have an industrial that didn't cost all that much more than a home serger, although I know that everyone does not have room for an industrial machine. That said, it is the best serger I have ever used. It can sew anything. I have a Viking that I despise. Anything but a Viking.

    I wouldn't want it if it wasn't a BABYLOCK. Just can't beat it!
