  • Good, but not professional

    This is a home machine. I wouldn't call it 'professional'. Even so, it's capable at what it does. Threads easily enough, works well enough. Threading isn't hard, once you figure it out. Comes with a CD with fairly detailed instructions on how to set up each of the various stitches. The additional presser feet are a nice addition. Auto tension works fine. There are some points of design that I found lacking: *Lighting isn't very good. I added a sewing machine light to it. You almost need a flashlight for threading some parts of it. *The tray that holds the thread cones is a little low-and in the way. Getting your hand on the 'fed' side of the fabric isn't as easy as it should be. I bang into that tray all the time. *The telescoping thread guide (wire thing that raises up above the thread cones) is kind of spindly and fragile. *No on board storage / storage is lacking. It comes with a little box for the small pieces, but there's still presser feet and the cutter cover and cover stitch covers that are loose. Two largish chunks of plastic that need to fit into the sewing box. *The scrap bin doesn't attach. The little tray that catches cuttings just slips under the front. If you pick up the machine, that tray stays behind. *Tension adjusters move too easily. There are some levers for fine tuning tension, and they move if you brush against them (which messes up the auto tension settings). *Cutter cover and cover stitch cover snap in place. You have to slide one off and the other on to change over. They feel like they'll be the parts that break first. *Cover stitch cover isn't flat. This is the surface to the right of the needles. There's a small raise in it (because the upper looper doesn't retract enough). That means that your fabric goes up over a bump on the right side, about parallel to the needles. A little disconcerting. *Presser foot lift lever isn't convenient. You flip it down to raise the foot, and up to drop the foot. It's between the back of the overarm and the thread . Getting used to it though. Even with the above 'issues', I'm happy enough with the machine. It's relatively inexpensive for all the things it can do. Overlock stitches are all functional and work well. Cover stitches are great. It's two machines in one. Changing over from one mode to the other takes a few minutes, so planning out your sewing in advance is helpful. And, it seems like it's of reasonable quality. I don't know what a 25 year warranty means for it. 90 days parts and labor looks like the reality of it.

    You really must read the direction on how to correctly set it up. Once you set it up its really easy to use. It's a work horse.

  • Great Serger for a great price

    This is an amazing Serger! Download the user manual and go through all of the stitches before starting a project. Once you understand how to thread the machine it's pretty simple to go from one stitch to another. Keep a binder with the stitch directions & make sure to write down any minor adjustments for future reference.

    This machine is really good. Good bang for your money. Need time and patience to switch from one position to another one. But the professional finish is really good. You are going to love this machine...

  • Great Machine!

    I absolutely love my new Singer Serger. It runs like a dream. There is a learning curve with all that it does, but with a little patience I was on my way. Can't wait to see all of the new things I can do with the many functions of this machine! I mainly use this for making gymnastics leotards so the serging feature is very important, but I can't wait to put the overstitch and seam lock options to use.

  • Singer Professional 5 Serger

    I got the serger home first thing i did is printed out the PDF file instructions put them all in a binder and started testing out the machine. In front of the Machine A thru K took me a minute to figure out that the colored dots are the ones you need to thread an you need the PDF manual that tells you were to set your Seam width, spreader, that’s simple.... flatlock the reason i got this serger that’s more complicated... took me a long time to figure it out wish there was better instructions, its got real pictures but you really cant see what they talking about wish they like circled it or something. Upper looper lower loop??? ( Flatlock Tread the blue top, green bottom, red bottom.) What confused me is for the green it says upper looper engaged and threaded… the upper is what confused me it took me a while but once I figured it out its easy simple… The green can be treaded thru the bottom or the top. Changing from the cutter or straight plate is hard to snap off I feel like im going to break it, hope it smoothes out with time and get easier to take off or im taking it off wrong… it defiantly takes time i went thru all the You tube demos and HSN videos Singer site videos ... but once you get the stitch to work its awesome... i got the rolled hem, and took a hour to figure out the flatlock and then forgot how to do the rolled hem need better notes for self.. but over all once you get passed figuring it out ... you will be happy with it... but if you don’t have time to sit with it, or don’t like to mess with stuff, I wouldn’t recommend it. I have lots of patients and even i got frustrated a few times... its very complicated but once you figure it out its easy…does lots i haven’t even tested the other feet. But with time im sure it will come easy.,,,

  • Singer Professional 5 Serger

    I total love my new serger. I love the Cover Stitch capabilities! It was not hard to figure out or thread, I studied it step by step, took notes and made samples of each stitch. Take time to learn about the machine and its capabilities before diving into a sewing project. The step by step book is very helpful. I don't think you need professional classes to figure it out, but you definitely need to do learn about the different techniques first.

  • A Good Tool

    This is my second serger. It helped to already be familiar with sergers. As other reviewers said, the threading required practice and careful reading of the manual. As complicated as this machine is, I think the manual was fairly well written. I had a few questions at first and thought I was going to have to call their customer service number, but as I worked on threading the machine for different stitches and trying them out, I figured out pretty much all I needed to know. It's a great machine. The chain stitch makes fitting garments much easier since you can just pull a thread to remove an entire seam. I'm looking forward to using the cover hem on knit garments. I will still use my older serger for regular serging -- that will save me from having to re-thread the new one so much. It will mean buying a few more cones of thread but I can handle that.

  • Love It!

    I love this machine. The manual is a must and needs to be read through several times before tackling this monster machine. I traded up from a 1970's Bernette and thought I knew what I was doing. There are settings that involve the transmission and the blade that were new to me and I am so happy with how many new options I have with this awesome machine. My Mother came to my house and tried it and ordered herself one that same day. My aunt is a Viking/Huskvana dealer and she was impressed with the singer machine and the price. It's equivilant viking is over$2000. Buy it, you will love it!!!

  • I don't know how I lived without this!

    Excellent machine, but be aware that it does take time to get setup and threaded correctly for it to work. If anything is misthreaded, it will not sew properly. That said, I have enjoyed this machine and the professional finishes that it gives to the garments that I create. It saves so much time too (after it's setup!). I'm not sure how I lived without having a serger like this in my sewing shop!
