I am trying to teach myself to sew.... what is a serge stitch an how do I set my brother sewing machine to do it?


A serger (overlocker) is not a sewing machine. If you look at the inside seams of a purchased t-shirt, you will usually find a serge stitch that was created using a serger (overlocker). A serger/overlocker usually uses 3 or 4 threads to create that stitch. It also trims the fabric at the same time it finishes the fabric edge. The serge stitch is a chain stitch that, if you pull a particular thread, the entire stitch will come undone.

Your sewing machine is not able to create that same stitch. Your sewing machine may have what is called an "overlock" stitch, but it will use only 2 threads (the top and bobbin) to create that stitch. You would have to consult your owner's manual to see if it can make an overlock stitch.

Hi. I have a Empisal 406E overlocker, can I use it as a normal sewing machine aswell? If so, do I need to use all 4 threads or only 2 like when you use a sewing machine? Thank you.


Not sure what you are trying to do with your serger. An overlocker will ALWAYS finish the raw edge of the fabric. However, you can certainly serge t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. Serging knits is fantastic because the serger stitch allows for fabric stretch without popping the thread. It is easy to sew patterns that require a small seam allowance, like 1/4". Just remember that the blades must ALWAYS be activated (trim off part of the fabric) or you risk breaking the loopers. You can use either 3 or 4 threads. Using 4 threads gives just a bit more security to your garment to prevent popped seams in active wear worn during sport events, etc. Using 3 threads is ok for garments that don't experience stress on the seams.

I've even made a quilt using jelly roll fabric on a serger. A serger is ok for this type of quilt because the pinpoint accuracy of strip quilting is not required as it would be for stitching together blocks that have points & seams that must match. It is very difficult to get very accurate seams on a serger, probably partly because it stitches so much faster than a sewing machine.

Lots of info on the internet...

SERGER:
A serger can do a lot of things. Frequently, they are used to finish raw seams and hems, but there's so much more they can do. It's mostly just a matter of experimenting and deciding how to apply it to your projects. I've even serged a strip quilt.

You can download workbooks and work through them. (This is a Bernina work book site, but sergers frequently can do similar stitches.)

Does anyone have a suggestion? I have threaded the machine correctly but I cannot get the machine to sew.


You have a nice serger, so let's start with some basics:
Is your serger cleaned?
Go back to the instruction book and set the entire machine to the factory settings. For example, set all the dials to tension 4. Use quality thread which is made for your spool holder. Usually cones of thread work best. Use an appropriate fabric, not sheer, not very heavy drapery fabric. Make absolutely sure it's threaded properly. Finally, make sure all the threads are under the presser foot.....then start serging. If the serger still won't serge without tangling, it might be good to have it serviced. I find that buying a new serger is more useful than having a worn out one serviced. Good luck!

Hello I just got a new home My Lock 334D machine. It has Seized intermittenly. could we troubleshoot the problem & fix it together?


Un-thread and then see if the machine will run without thread.

If not, it needs to go into the shop for repair.

If it does, refer to the manual. Or, the guide that should be printed on the inside of the serger's door.

Raise the thread antenna to it's highest position. Keep it at this position when serging. If lowered for storage, and threaded, be sure the thread does not tangle around the antenna arms.

Raise the presser foot.

Open/set the tensions to zero.

Raise the loopers to their highest level - there may be an indicator mark on the side of the serger to match with a mark on the handwheel to help with this.

Start threading from the right to the left; upper looper first.

After threading, reset the tensions to a medium number, lower the presser foot and stitch a chain to test the stitching.

Serge a scrap and adjust the tension as necessary.

Once you get the serger working as it should - don't run out of thread. Tie off, open the tension, raise presser foot and gently guide the new thread through the threading process.

When changing the thread or removing the thread to store the serger, cut the thread at the antenna, leaving thread tails for tying off the new thread.

If you do not have Nancy Zieman's "Serge with Confidence", you will find it much more informative than the average serger manual.

Just got a used simplicity serger how to use and why use a serger . i really don't sew much but like to make purses, quilts is it worth using a serger or where should one use a serger?


Sergers do pretty much have a certain function--to finish raw edges, although there are some other decorative things you can do with a serger if it has the capability. Download the pdf file at this site to get some ideas: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CB8QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.peggyddesigns.com%2Fpdf%2FYOU_DID_THAT_WITH_YOUR_SERGER.pdf&ei=eq9sVczgLMbtsAWOroHIDw&usg=AFQjCNEaebGu1AksU57pm61P6mvGGcS4VA&bvm=bv.94455598,d.b2w You can also join some sites that will email you projects every week that can be made on a serger.

A serger is great for making t-shirts (stretchy fabric), tablecloths, napkins, placemats, etc. The rolled hem is nice! And, yes, you can make quilts although it is best to use a sewing machine when intricate stitching of pieces require that the points meet, and the 1/4 inch seam is pertinent to the design. A serger does do a great quilt by serging strip pieces together where the 1/4 inch seam allowance and matching points are not a requirement. It will put a strip-pieced quilt top together very quickly. (Its really quick if you purchase the precut Jelly Roll fabric.) But you will need to figure out how to quilt the top, batting, and backing together using something other than a serger--or pay someone to do it for you.

Or try making a Quilt as You Go quilt where you would serge the top strip, batting, and backing strip all together. When you are finished putting the quilt together, all you will need to do is add the binding--the first part you can use a serger, but when you flip the binding over to the front side to finish, you'll probably want to handstitch it.
