It was a toss up between the Janome 204D and the slightly less expensive Brother 1034D. There are thousands of great online reviews of the Brother.
But having just a bit more to spend, I was concerned that the Brother, while a great machine, would be noisy and seem somehow flimsy (an impression I got both from reading 1034D reviews as well as through experience with other Brother products). I also liked the look and compact profile of the Janome 204D.
I'm so glad I took a chance and went for the Janome. It's beautiful! It's compact, I think it's well designed, very quiet and runs extremely smoothly. It came threaded and my first project was complete within hours of opening the box.
When it came time to re-thread the machine I watched about 5 minutes of the instructional DVD that came with the serger and didn't find it difficult (although I have only threaded it by tying and pulling the new thread through, not "from scratch").
Overall I'm glad I spent a little extra for what is obviously a quality machine.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality.
I get this Janome MyLock204D Serger Is the perfect product to complete all your sewing needs, I just start a home business and I'm very happy with the purchase. I's the best you can get and very good for the price. Thank you.
I took this machine out of the box and set it up. Since it came all threaded,
I put in a piece of material and started sewing right away. Worked perfect!
I have changed the color of the thread several times and it is pretty easy
once you get the hang of it. If you tie on the new thread and carefully pull it through
there were no problems at all.
A coverstitch requires more threads and special attachments on a serger and retail over a thousand dollars . Or you can get a machine that does coverstitch ONLY for 400.00 and up. This machine DOESN'T DO COVERSTITCHmoms2cool on Dec 3, 2013
