Pros & Cons
The Brother Serger Lay-in Thread Machine is reliable, easy to learn and use, offering a choice of two sewing surfaces namely free arm and flat bed, with 3 or 4 thread serger. The machine features 22 stitch functions, and a snap-on interchangeable creative foot. The stitch options include 4 thread over lock, 3 thread over lock, narrow hem, and rolled hem and ribbon lock stitches. It delivers high quality stitching, as high up to 1300 spm speed. The width of the stitch can easily be adjusted between 5 mm to 7 mm from left needle. The 1034D uses most standard home sewing machine needles, thus eliminates the need to purchase special needles. With its differential fabric feed (heavy or light fabric), the machine is designed to work for finishing the edges and hems on a wide range of fabrics, including formal wear, linens and/or stretchy fabrics, and help achieve quality and professional stitch. Sliding off the removable arm allows serging cylindrical items such as sleeves. The color-coded upper thread guides and lower loop threading system, makes threading a breeze. The included snap-on presser feet allows for easy and quick transition to desired stitch. The kit also includes a multi-lingual and easy to follow instructional CD to get started.
However, some users feel the video CD is of poor quality, YouTube provides better videos to get started. Adjusting the tensions helps reduce the first time serging frustrations.
Overall, the Brother Serger Lay-in Thread Machine is a perfect addition to any sewing room. The affordable price, easy to use quality features with 5-25 years of warranty, makes it a recommended choice of many sewing lovers.
