sergers

NinaCa | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I would like to buy a new serger that is easy to thread. I am considering only baby lock at this time due to the air threading. I am considering an Evolution or an Ovation (both 8 thread) or an Enlighten (4 thread) & a separate cover stitch  machine. does anyone have these? any feedback about why you chose the one you chose & how you like it? Thanks 🙂

    Sergers

    Babylock certainly has many choices.  I went from a early model serger (Funlock) to the Babylock Imagine a few years ago.

    The older models could be cantankerous and the air jet threading such a blessing.

    I have only used 4-thread sergers and a double needle on the sewing machine for my faux coverstitch hemming.

    To find what is best for you, determine how much you are going to use these machines as well as the details you want to be able to achieve.  Then find dealers where you can see demonstrations as well as take test drives. It might be a good idea to also to consider the type of needle these machines use as well as availability if it is not a sewing machine needle.

    There are sewing expos all over the country and one or more may be coming near you where all the dealers should be in attendance to show their products and sometimes offer deals.   Type 2014 sewing expos your preferred search engine for places, dates and times.

    If you find what you want at an expo, make sure the dealer is near where you live for convenient service .
