Choosing a Serger

Like a sewing machine, a serger is a very important purchase. It is also known an an overlock machine at times.

There are a variety of different models that are available to the home sewer. A serger uses multiple threads to seam and overcast raw edges giving your project a professional touch. Most sergers can use between two and five spools of thread at the same time.

A serger is not intended to replace the need of a sewing machine, but is meant to be an addition. A traditional sewing machine is a must for zippers, buttonholes, etc. A serger will create fast, professional looking seams for your projects. A serger may also be used for decorative stitching on the outside of garments or on home decorating items.

One of the most important things to consider when buying a serger is the number of threads the serger uses. A five-thread serger is the most versatile, but if you want just the most basic machine a three-thread serger will work.

Make sure you will be able to thread the machine with ease. All machines are color coded to help guide the thread through properly, though some machines may be more difficult. The lower "looper" is usually the most difficult. Some machines are self-threading. Be sure to practice threading the machine before making a final purchase.

Top-of-the-line sergers have computerized display panels that makes operating the machine very easy. They are also very expensive but worth it as an investment. Any stitch adjustment, tension adjustment can be made with a touch of a button allowing you to work more quickly and efficiently.

Every machine is sold with basic attachments. Additional attachments may be purchased separately.

Always find a reputable retailer who will offer assistance and repairs. You will pay more but they are more knowledgeable and you will get better service. As you decide on which sergers to choose from, spend at least 1/2 hour testing each model.

In order to purchase a serger that best suits your needs, evaluate your level of sewing expertise and the types of projects you sew. Some craft stores offer lessons and this can be very helpful getting you acquainted with a serger.
