Exploring Fashion One Thread At A Time

Well that was not nice! My serger DID NOT come yesterday as it was supposed to – paid for overnight Saturday delivery and POOF Fedex DID NOT DELIVER.

Now they say it will come by Tuesday. Horrors. I am rethinking the whole thing. If just getting one delivered is a problem, how much will using it be a problem? If there are any experienced sergers out there – could you let me know which one you would buy? I can always send this one back and get the better one. Eventually. I probably wouldn’t order it from the same place ……….

I’ve looked at the Juki MO735 and it does have a coverstitch which would be excellent for hemming. I’ve read reviews where something BROKE on this machine because it was threaded incorrectly or something. Not a happy thought since sending it back would be expensive. I’ve also read where the pedal isn’t responsive – either goes too slow or too fast. Sigh.

I am already intimidated by the concept of using a serger. Then I read how hard it is to manually thread the Juki 644D. And now I’m super intimidated. Maybe I’ll just keep using the Bernina and forget the whole thing ……………

I came from a family who made things. My father was a carpenter with a passion for making furniture. My mother sewed, crocheted, cooked and made a home on a shoestring. My grandmothers both quilted. As a teenager, I found batik through a wonderful art teacher who allowed me the freedom to batik yards of fabric. I then cut them up into a pattern and wore the item I made. I was ecstatic. I painted in my teens and twenties and my parents gracefully supplied me with oil paints and turpentine. When I needed an easel, my father took me to the shop where he worked and made me one. When he found unused and unwanted canvas, he brought it home and stretched it for me with wood from his shop at home. I was indulged at every step of the way. I wasn't ever told that I could not do something or that I should not do something. I was given freedom to chose my path in life. A blessed life I have lived, for sure.
