    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...!

    Customer review by Niteroi

    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!

    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.

    I want a machine that will actually trim the fabric as I sew like the ones that are in a factory..
    by annabear 2/9/2014
    • Thank you for your question. A serger has knives that can cut the fabric edge off as you sew. The knives can be retracted should you need to do a stitch that doesn't require them.

    • this will trim the fabric & it has a small catcher for scrapes when they are cut. Do like they say about leaving 9- 12 " of thread when you finish project. It helps get started on your next project. I almost always use the cutter, I was surprised. I haven't used pins on material because I've used flannel, fleece, denim but you have to be careful not to place them like you would sewing machine. It will dull the blades if it hits pins.

    • It takes some time. follow the instructions. If you got a DVD , make sure you look at it. I also bought a long needle threader. If you do have a problem beyond the help I recommended go on YOU TUBE. Put in How to thread a serger. This is a wonderful way to learn how. Also once you have your machine threaded, Do NOT unthread to change colors of thread. Tie the new color to the old, it works. Small tie, it does go threw the needle. Run threw until new color goes threw needle.:) Hope this helps.:)

    • If it was purchased new it should have been already threaded. However, the box should an instructional DVD which shows a step by step guide on threading and the manual has a diagram which assist the user as well.
