      Why is Uki the best serger brand?

      1. Kiley | | #8

        Was the name Uki mispelled? Was it supposed to be Juki? Juki also makes industrial sergers. In a book called "Know Your Babylock" it explains some serger histroy. In 1967 Juki Co. of Japan developed the first household serger that was smaller and much like the the larger industrial overlocks used in their factories. They called this miniature overlock the baby overlock or baby lock. Mostly these sergers were sold to tailors and garment workers. Tacony corp. has exclusive distribution rights for the USA market and first introduced the machines to the American Home Economics Assoc convention. They trained economists to educate dealers and consumers on serger sewing techniques. Tacony has continued to upgrade their models and now almost every major sewing machine company has their own line of sergers. As to which one is the best can probably be highly debated. Their are many fine sergers on the market today that vary in features, performance and price.

        yuki is a very big professional brand for industrial sewing machines who made also for us homesewers this machine. if you ask any proffessional they think yuki is the Mercedes.

    I bought a BabyLock Imagine, the least expensive one they make. I've never had a moment's trouble with it. I shopped for my serger based on features. What I wanted was easy threading and no trouble with tension adjustments. The BabyLocks have the "puff of air" threading for the loopers. It is SO easy. And there are no tension adjustments. Thread it and go. Mine came with an instructional video, too. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the reply re:surgers.  My niece just bought a babylock quilting machine and loves it.  I think I will go with babylock

       

      Thanks,  Sue

        I just bought a babylock evolve and it will do everything I ever wanted in a serger - my old 4 thread is a real workhorse and I usually don't have too much trouble threading it but I like the ability to do the coverlock stitch for neck edges and hems and the 2-thread chain + overlock at the same time.  Look into this model.

          Thanks for the feedback.  I just bought a babylock serger today.  Very excited, it won't be in until wed.  I'm going to take the free classes that the store offers.
