I sew professionally and have been sewing for many years. I purchased this serger because I needed a secondary serger. I also own a Juki MO654 serger and a Janome cover pro machine. The American home serger has a similar feel to these two other mid priced sergers. This serger has a good, solid feel. It is very quiet and hums as I sew. The plastic on the machine is thick and does not feel cheap. When I sew, the machine feels very solid and has suction cup feet, so it does not vibrate around on the table. This serger can do a rolled hem however, you must change the face plate and make a few setting adjustments in order to achieve this stitch. This was not made clear in the product description. If you don't know anything about serger machines....on a more expensive machine a rolled hem is achieved by merely flipping a switch. This isn't really a problem for me, but it would have been nice to know. Over all, this is a really nice serger especially at the price I paid...$***...free shipping and no tax.
My daughter-in-law loves doing crafts and has been stitching things by hand. My daughter and I suprised her with an easy to use sewing machine on her birthday. She was so happy to learn how to use it. It reminded me of my first New Home Machine, but now the name changed to Janome.
I bought it after shopping for a machine that was light weight and would fit in my carry-on. Now I take it for classes and leave my heavy machines at home.
Pretty good sewing machine but not my dream machine. The thing that bothers me about this machine is the thread cutter mechanism. It does not go back to it's home position causing thread to wrap around and creates issues. Would love to remove it since I can't use the function. Please let me know if this can be removed.
