Serger: Bernina, BabyLock OR ???
Hello all! So happy you are here for me to ask questions!!!
I don’t know how I did it but it seems I have sewn for 54 years without a Serger … oh my! In any case, I am now looking and can see it is no easy task to pick one. I have read what I could find for recent posts but I am still in a quandary.
After sewing on several machines I found my Bernina 1230 and have been faithfully in love for years. I would not part with this machine for all the money in the world! Therefore, yesterday I went to a local shop and looked at a Bernina 1300MDC. Though the machine was not totally given a demo it was impressive. I then went over to another dealer and looked at a BabyLock Evolve.
I was amazed by the Jet-Air threading and the fact that it seemed to do a fair amount without changing feet. In fact, I was totally bowled over at the rolled hem and gathering … oh but I have lived in the dark ages for tooooo long :O
I know that any machine choice is so very personal but I would love to hear what your comments might be. I truly can’t get a handle on any one machine out there that is the end all machine.
