What Does A Serger Do For You? (The Definition)
First of all, it’s important to understand. There’s a difference between your regular sewing machine and serger.
A serger gives your fabrics’ edges a beautiful, professional finish. Known as overcasting, it prevents the edges from fraying. And is a finish that is much better than a sewing machine.
While there are other ways to lock your seams without having to use one, you will agree with me that a serger turns around the whole sewing experience into a much better one.
The type of stitches vary from one serger to another, and so do other functions, all of which we will look at a little later.
So, What Exactly Is The Brother 1034D Serger?
Let’s take a closer look at its physical characteristics.
It’s one of the best sergers on the market. It measures 11”x 11.7” x 13.2,” and is lightweight. With a total shipping weight of around 18.1 pounds (8.21 kg).
The machine uses the standard-size needle and 3/4 threads. It’s coupled with a lot more features that make it a high performing machine.
Can This Machine Replace My Regular Sewing Machine?
Do you intend to specialize in seam locking? If so, a serger is all you need. But it can’t take the place of a sewing machine.
With some adjustments, your regular sewing machine will complete a task. But it won’t provide excellent, long-lasting results.
A serger, though, leaves your project looking neat with a professional finish.
Even those fabrics that, when folded, may break your needle, can finally look just how you imagined them.
Can You Sew Perfectly With Its Speed?
I’ll be completely honest with you.
It’s like learning to ride a bike. Once you get the knack, it’s a breeze. The same applies to using the Brother Serger 1034D.
With some experience, you build to working at the machines highest speed. Up to 1300 stitches per minute with fantastic finishes.
Most machines need a bit of oiling to keep running smooth. The Brother 1034D 3/4 thread serger with differential feed is one of them.
Consider oiling it before you start stitching for smooth functioning. Repeat this at least once every month or when you see it deem fit.
What Fabrics Can I Use With It?
You can work with different types of garments. And have the same excellent stitch quality. All you do is adjust the differential fabric feed ratio between 0.7 to 2.0 depending on the fabric.
The differential feed is a great function that makes this serger stands out. Not all sergers have it. It helps improve the quality of the stitches you make.
You no longer have to worry about bumps and waves on your fabrics.
So, you can use your serger for all your stretchy, thin, and knitted fabrics. Including denim, silk or lycra and spandex.
