Review of the Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger
Being in the market for a new serger I found this one at Amazon.com: the Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger. The last serger I purchased was in 1986, a Singer that I have worn out. It cost around $600.00 at the time. The Brother 1043D has similar functionality, but is priced at about $219.54 (marked down from $239.99). Such a deal!
Before I purchased my first serger, I sewed everything with a regular sewing machine that had straight and zig-zag stitches and would make decent buttonholes if I fiddled with it just right.
The Brother 1034D serger has many features that my old serger did not. It can be set up for 22 different stitch patterns that include narrow hemming, rolled hemming, and ribbon lock. You will be able to produce 4 thread overlock, and 3 thread overlock in two widths. Continue reading
Why buy a Brother PC-420 PRW Limited Edition Sewing Machine?
Think Project Runway and all of the hustle the contestants go through to produce a final project within major time constraints. I love the show, and admire the skills that are openly on display. One necessary must have for a serious dressmaker, tailor, or designer is a well running, feature rich, dependable sewing machine for those days you have to get something done right away. After watching the show (Project Runway), I will never complain about not having enough time again!
I have been watching reruns on the Style network and I can hardly wait for the new season.
The Brother PC-420 PRW Limited Edition Project Runway Sewing Machine is an exceptional tool: a feature packed, reasonably priced sewing machine that will fuel your creative fashion or quilting impulse. Choose from 294 built in stitches, 10 styles of automatic buttonholes, and three lettering styles for monogram embroidery which are selected from a computerized liquid crystal display (LCD) screen. The My Custom Stitch TM feature allows you to design and save your own stitches to the machine’s computer memory. Two other great features are the needle threading system and automatic thread trimmer which cuts lower and upper threads at the end of each task, both engineered to save you time. Also, to lift the presser foot one can use the built-in knee lift (a feature that used to come only with industrial sewing machines) or the hand lever, whichever suits your needs. Continue reading
