My husband asked me, "How much is a new machine?" I said, "Well a new Juki is only about $350, but my machine is much better than a Juki..." He said, "Maybe that's the problem. Maybe you have a Ferrari and you need a pick-up truck.. A Ferrari might be "better" than a pick-up truck, but when you need to move a load, you really need a pick-up truck."
I realized that my current sewing projects - mostly the Katwise sweater coats - were more of the heavy-duty variety and perhaps my current brand of serger was just too finicky for the job.
I am very happy that I made this purchase. The Juki sews beautifully even through several layers of felted wool. I can just breeze through the seams without any jamming or skipped stitches. I am very very happy with this machine.
My repairman is probably wondering where I have been....
I have small clothing business where I work mostly with the cotton lycra, rayon lawn and silk chiffon. This serger cleanly and easily powers through my heavier fabrics and my soft and smooth silks. I have experience with lots of sergers and this is by far my favorite.
I used to have a Siruba serger. While it was a great machine, it really couldn't handle the amount of use I was putting on it. It was constantly coming unthreaded and I had to adjust the timing a little too regularly. I had to purchase a machine that could handle my work load.
For a pop up shop I recently made over 100 cotton lycra crop tops with this machine (using wooly nylon) in a matter of days. My Juki never faltered. I was super impressed. Handles well with poly thread and the stretchy wooly nylon.
All around a great machine and good for moderate to heavy use.
Being a young mother and a college student, I had to make every penny count due to a very limited budget but I also had to maximize the return on my investment in this product. I spent around 5 FULL days doing research (luckily I'm on summer break to able to do this) on which serger to buy and finally came to the conclusion that this was it, for sure!! Here's the biggest reason why:
This serger is made with parts that are built to last. Even after a week of using this, I can tell that with great care and a comprehensive knowledge of how this machine operates, it will last me a very long time. I like to use an analogy of purchasing a car: would you rather have the car that's a flashy color with a sunroof and dazzling features that make it seem like more fun to drive, but has faulty parts that break apart and cost you more money in the long run?? Or would you rather get a car that has an excellent engine, won't break down anytime soon and if it does, has parts that are easily accessible and replaceable, and can be pimped out later on down the road??
I chose the one that may not have all the bells and whistles of other segers out there, but I am positive it will last me for a very long time even with very heavy use.
Here are a few extra pros:
-pretty quiet and smooth running
-the owner's manual has detailed pictures and methodologies
-a good variation on which techniques you can perform
-well-made, again ;)
-nice and long cord
-color-coded threading labels
-adequate supply of provided accessories, some I'm not quite sure what their use is yet but look cool
-suction cups on the bottom so serger stays in place in case your 5 year old decides to see how heavy it is
-compact and sturdy
-trusted company, Juki
-handle for carrying and transporting
-differential feed!! Loving this
-also a good purchase if serging somewhat terrifies you like it did me. Even though you will mess up, you'll still be learning and growing and improving on what you know and can do. Just practice. Practice threading over and over, practice sewing on different types of fabric, practice the roll hemming and gathering techniques listed in the owner's manual; just get to know your machine while you practice on it.
And one con that isn't really that bad, just something I will look for in my upgrade in the distant future:
-chain stitch and that cool hem stitch capability you see on all manufactured clothing
So, make an investment in yourself and your sewing, whether novice or professional!!
