Smile Serger

I am wondering what kind of serger most quilt boarders are using? I have a Kenmore overlock 3/4 that belonged to my mother. Have been having trouble rethreading it and was looking for a tutorial on how that work's also? Any help will be appreciated. Thank's, Fay.

I have a White, an Elna, a Singer, and a Toyota. They each have different threading. You just about have to have a book or someone to actually show you how to thread it. If you have a book, you will find probably a long handlge pair of tweezers helpful as well as a threading loop, makes it much easier to thread some of the harder machines. Not much help, sorry.

I have the Brother 1034. Haven't had a chance to do much with it yet but I've used it for a few things and like it.

I have a Bernina 1300. If I had it to do over again I would probably by just a plain 4 thread Bernina and a separate cover stitch only machine. Did have a Pfaff serger but too hard to thread for me.

I have a Husqvarna Viking 936...it's a 5 spool and I love it. Had a small Singer for my first one and it was ok...this one is much better and more versatile.

I too am in the market for a serger - so thanks for the advice. I'm hoping to come across one one day in a garage sale. I did see one a few years ago but I didn't think I wanted one then. Isn't that the way it goes?

I have a 1000L Huskylock by Viking. It was a used one I bought many years ago. Never had a problem with it. Still works like a charm. pat
