I’m new in this forum.
Last week my mother gave me a very old, very simple serger, and so today I spent an hour with the threads, oil and so on, only to sew two little pieces of waste clothes just to see the stitches. And the machine literally burned out, smoke coming from the engine. So I guess I have to find myself another serger.
I’m a novice, with a new brother sewing machine, and wanting to learn how to sew in jersey and stretch fabrics, mostly baby clothes for now.
I have found two used sergers in near distance. One cheap end Elna 614DE and one more skilled Bernina 1300 DC. Both about 10 years old and working.
Elna provides a couple of stitches but no cover stitch. No manual. The prices is 80€. Bernina provides 24 stitches and coverstitch. The price is 330€. And comes with a manual.
Will I regret not having bought the expensive one, or do i really need cover stitches and 24 different stitches all in all? I think I will probably use the cover stitch and 1-2 different serger stitches all in all anyway.
I make around 10-20 sewing projects a year if I do my very best and perhaps some years only 2-5 sewing projects.
I hope you will give me your advise.
