Hi. I’m a new member, and am hoping to glean lots of helpful information from this group. At the moment, I’m planning on buying a new serger and have narrowed my choice down to Pfaff. I’m wanting any input from those of you who have the 4852, or 4862. I’d really like the 4874, but doubt I’d use all the lovely features of that model. I sew most fabrics, from knits to denim – clothing, quilts and home dec. Thanks for any feedback.
