What brand of serger do you own? If you own more than one, then which one do you use the most. Also, could you say how many threads it can use.

I have a 4 thread Babylock. It is my 2nd serger. My first serger was an industrial Juki which I wish I still had. The differential feed is nice (Babylock has that but the Juki didn't) but the Juki was just a workhorse. I would love to upgrade to the Babylock 8 thread serger which does several different coverstitches.

The serger is the same way as the embroidery machine here...lives here, but I wasn't the one who bought it. I know Anita bought them both from the same local sewing place that not only sells and services them...but also gave several lessons with each one as part of the purchase price.

The serger is four thread...we use it quite a bit for finishing seams and doing the edges.


So now the Lord says, "Stop right where you are! Look for the old, godly way; and walk in it. Travel its path and you will find rest for your souls. ~Jer 6:16

Everyone can purchase their freedom by having the courage to forgo the perks of dependency.

I would love to learn how to use a serger. It's on my list of things to do.

Sergers are INVALUABLE! I got my first serger (the Juki) 25 years ago. It was a simple 4 thread industrial machine. It didn't have any bells and whistles but it did a great job. I bought my Babylock (also a 4 thread) about 11 years ago. It has a differential feed which is good (it keeps knits from stretching out of shape and it can also gather). I would love to have a serger that does a true cover stitch (better known as a t-shirt hem). if you look at the bottom of a t-shirt, you will see a double row of stitching on the right side and an overlock looking stitch on the wrong side that encases the raw edge).

My serger is a 4-thread Pfaff Hobbylock, about 17 or 18 years old. DH bought it for me after I wore out my first 3-thread Babylock (back when sergers were new) which didn't do a strong-enough stitch to stand up to children's clothing!

My sewing machine man (may he outlive me) would tell you NOT to buy a Pfaff machine now...he only sells Janome machines at this point. Says the quality of so many other brands has gone down badly.

I hit other so that I could see the poll results.

I don't own a serger. I'm the one that posted about my dead Singer Prelude that we donated to our trash man. It's squished up in a landfill right now, exactly where it belongs.

For Christmas, my dh got me a Babylock BL9 sewing machine but we took it back because it was very stripped down and we're looking for a sale of a bit nicer machine (feature-wise). This BL9 doesn't even have a thread cutter on the side. The Babylock dealer used to sell a BL16 (aka Denim Pro aka Natalie) for $150 but now that machine has about doubled in price and the "new" $150 machine is a little too basic. So, we took it back and will add next year's Christmas money to it and get something with a few more features -- hoping it will outlast ME.
