I am trying to decide whether or not to purchase a serger. I have recently retired and am spending my time sewing and taking classes. School is out for the summer and it will be a good time to learn about sergers and how to use one. I have done some research and see that the tension adjustments are the hardest thing to deal with after threading. I don’t want to spend all day fiddling with tension but not sure if I want to spend over $1000 for a machine with auto tension adjustment. My local dealer sells Janome and I looked at the 1110DX model. Does anyone have any suggestions? I also have a Bernina and Viking dealer where I live.
