    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.7 out of 5★by 727reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★by AWESOME, EASY, OUTSTANDING Im a new student tailor, but an older furniture upholstering technician. I have used industrialized machines, european, asian, american. For the projects that I have been doing with furniture upholstering and now tailor I am happy to recommed with flying colors the BROTHER Surger.This machine's overall quality deserves 5 stars across the board. I gave it 4 stars on the durability aspect due in part for only minor physical strengths. They are the thread tower - Very Flimsy, and the pullout free arm converter. Very plastic, very flimsy. Otherwise I can't say enought AWESOME points on the overall machine.Very stable, at high speeds, EASY, EASY, EASY threading. Worked out of the box and purposely took ot the treads from the guids to rethread, and you can't go wrong. First time rethreading and it worked as expected.Comes with CD's (2) of them. One is about the machine and the other about the versatility of stiching types. This machine can replace a reqular sewing machine for most home projects.Cord is long enough so that it does not need an extension cord. Cutting blades, are very sharp, stiching type such as rolled hems are easily done on the fly without having to switch out throat plates, or accessory foot. Uses regular home sewing machine needles. Comes with multiple extra feet, is able to stich about 22 different kind of variable stiches including flat lock.Again just because a machine is produced in another country and sold for more does not mean that it is any better. If you are into starting and completing your projects with minimal technical machine trouble purchase this machine.I have now had this machine for about 3 months, and have sewn on it without any troubles for about 350 hours total usage time. Not a click, not a misalignment, not any type of trouble.TIP: Purchase the best thread and it won't snap your line. Most of the time its not the machine it is the quality of the thread.Okay happy sewing I hope this review helped...! 09/12/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Excellent machine and a perfect price I wanted a serger mostly to sew stretch and thin fabrics like jersey blouses, lingerie and also to help me hem sheer lightweight fabrics for scarves. I have had this machine for 3 weeks.This serger is hassle free when it comes to tension. Very easy to adjust tension and basically all I had to do was play with the differential feed.These are the things I have made since I got it:1)A pair of denim pants - I used 4 thread overlock stitch to finish al the inside seams.2)A thin jersey nightgown – all sewn with 3 thread overlock stitch and hemmed with rolled hem making a lettuce edge.3)I hemmed a sheer lightweight scarf using the rolled hem. Perfect!!4)A serger scrap bag – I finished the inside seams with 3 thread overlock stitch and I used 2 variegated threads in the upper looper to sew the scrap bag pockets together.5)A sewing basket liner - I used the rolled hem on cotton to hem the ruffles of the liner and I also finished all the inside seams with a 3 thread.This Serger goes from denim to lightweight fabric with no problem at all. It comes with 2 Cds with videos to watch on the computer. One Cd is instructional, on how to use the serger. The other one has special techniques. Both are very helpful. It also has a booklet with all the settings for the special techniques. I do suggest getting a few books from your local library or buying a few. It can be of a great help if you can’t take classes.This Serger also comes with an extra pressure foot but I have used mostly the blindhem one with the guide. I did test the gathering foot and it helps when sewing 2 fabrics together or to insert ribbon on the edge.Most people complain about the threading process with sergers in general. Threading a serger is and will always be a more complex process than threading a sewing machine. But I learned quickly to thread this one. The lower looper has kind of a hook (I guess it is what they call threader) and it helps to thread it. I got dental floss to help me get the thread in the holes and it is a piece of cake now. The learning curve is just a bit longer than learning how to use a sewing machine. Threading this machine is hassle free.I like that the foot controller (pedal). It allows me to go slowly or fast. This can be very helpful when sewing slippery fabrics, curves or corners.It is very easy to remove the stitch finger to make the rolled hem and easy to put it back. You don’t even need to re-thread the machine.This machine comes with a trim trap but I didn’t like it because it has to be removed to open the door. The trim trap gets on the door way and it is also small. That’s why I made a scrap bag with pockets so I can also store the accessories I need to operate the machine.The knobs to adjust the stitch length and width are a bit hard and uncomfortable to turn, mainly if you just want to tweak it. I would have preferred it they were dials instead. But no big deal here.The light is fine.This serger has suction cups on the bottom so the machine doesn’t move on the table. It is pretty steady and it doesn’t vibrate much.I like that it is lightweight and that it has a handle to carry it.I also like that it came with a plastic cover.I didn’t rate durability because I have had it for a short time but overall it is a wonderful machine for an excellent price. It sews all kind of fabrics with no tension problems. I am very happy with it! 04/26/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Wow!! What a great serger! This is my first serger to ever use. I have a very basic Brother sewing machine that has been wonderful so I decided to stick with Brother products. After seeing all of the wonderful reviews here on this product, I jumped in. It sat in the box for about a week since I didn't really have a place to put it (and honestly I was a bit intimidated). I finally got it out and began playing with basic serging and the gathering foot using the thread that came preloaded. I played so much that one of the spools actually ran out!! So I HAD to learn to thread it. After watching the included CDs and looking over the manual, I did it! I've had it for about 2 weeks now and have rethreaded 4 or 5 times (to change colors) and can now do it without looking at the manual! I love the gathering foot and capabilities as it saves me SOOO much time when sewing clothing for my daughter. The rolled edge hem is also a quick and beautiful way to finish edges of ruffles! I am so happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone! I've included a pic of a ruffle on jeans that was finished on the bottom with a rolled edge hem and gathered with my serger. 12/01/2008
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Three Years and Still Love It I love reading reviews, however, so many times people who write them have just recently purchased, and while it helps to know that people love a product out of the box, I also like hearing how the product holds up over time and use. I have owned this serger for three years now and I still love it!! I have used it to make cotton scrubs, fleece tops and pajama bottoms, flannel pajama bottoms, linen tops and capri pants, and lighter-weight denim capris, among other projects. Once you get the hang of threading it is really simple, and you can follow the pictures right on the machine. It really does give a professional look to your projects with clean seams, and is a great companion for your regular sewing machine. If something were to happen to it, I would buy the exact same model tomorrow. 03/04/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Exceptional Value I have never written a product review before; however, after receiving and using my new Brother 1034D serger yesterday, I am compelled to write one now. This machine is a very good quality machine for an exceptional price. I have owned a "jet air" threading machine, which recently "died" after 10 years. I needed to have a serger quickly to finish a project and really did not want to pay over $1000 for a new machine. After researching several websites with consumer feedback, and reviewing videos of this machine, I decided I could not lose ordering this serger with quick shipping from WalMart, where I still paid less than any other advertised price where this machine is sold. The machine is not difficult to thread, sews beautifully, and the CDs and booklets are extremely detailed and helpful. If I may add for folks new to serging, one of the best books around is a Rodale publication "Serger Secrets-High Fashion Techniques for Creating Great-Looking Clothes." It is a 1998 publication still in print and extremely relevant regarding this particular machine. 02/05/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Great machine and worth the money!!! So you are like many others; doing your research and reading these rewiews to decide whether to purchase this serger. Well I am the owner of Devious Designs & Amped Fitness in Columbus, Ohio. Recently I made the choice to update a number of our older sergers. Like you, I did my research and came across this Bother Over Lock unit. I ended up purchasing one from Walmart for $190. We got it right on time and kudos to Walmart for there excellent processing and shipping.The unit is set up and ready to use right out of the box. And for those who may fear threading a serger, this unit is a snap to thread! It is the easiest one I we have ever threaded. Brother made it idiot proof with color coding and step/numbering inside the door. Plus there is a informative dvd and instruction manual.I'm also very impressed by the unit's power to zip through multiple layers of denim and other tough fabrics! This unit is compaable to our industrial grade machines. In fact, we have been so impressed that we four more and they are being used daily for 8 to 10 hrs a day with no problems!The only only down fall I see is that if this is your first serger, matching fabric, needle, and thread tension may be a bit tricky to get just right. But there is a chart on the owner's manual to help you.Overall this machine is very durable, multi-functional, and very attractively priced. In no time you'll be sewing like a true professional and wondering how you ever got along without this unit! Just remember that we use it to produce swimwear, fitness wear and many other outfits you buy and wear! We loved it so much that we now own 5!!!!Happy sewing and Kudos to Brother and Walmart. 01/08/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★by Excellent Serger After reading hundreds of reviews about this machine, I knew I would be happy with it. I make washable furniture slipcovers and have to use a serger for all of the inside seams. After months of fighting with my old serger, and constantly re-threading it, I decided to buy a new one. I borrowed my neighbors Brother Serger to finish a project and really liked it. Now that I have my own... life's good again! I love the lower looper's easy threading!I would recommend this machine to anyone who wants to have worry free serging. 06/28/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Great! I'd never used a serger and expected some difficulty threading it from stories I'd heard. Not so. The serger is easy to use, and does an excellent job. I've been very pleased with the Brother serger and sewing/embroidery machines I own. 12/03/2010
