Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

The serger makes very nice stitches. It is a bit noisy, but that really is not a problem. Threading can be tricky, but there are youtube videos that make the process easier. I did not mark high quality because I have not used it long enough to know.

Awesome serger. My largest obstacle was me. I played with this on and off for about 6 hours. Finally I figured out it was me, and that was on the cover stitch. Beautiful stitches, quiet too. Would recommend to antone, just be sure to slow down and study the threading. Not difficult, but just the slightest error in threading will have you befuddled. Once I figured out my error, eureka, duh.

Pro 5 serger

This machine is impressive. It was an upgrade for me from a singer tiny serger which is super tiny compared to the pro 5. So a bit of shock for me. It works great but I wish there was more explanation in the book about why the threads will break. I found out through trial and error that the threads have to be just so OR ELSE! I have only figured out the coverstitch and three thread overlook so far. Overall I would say this is a great machine for the price.

Good Value, Great Features, High Quality, So Many Design Options.

I have moved past the intimidating early stages, and now have learned to thread, and use this machine with ease. It is as much fun as expected when I made the purchase. I considered the Babylock with the air threading, but I KNOW Singer. It's the machine brand my mother taught me to sew on back in the 70's. It is a happy part of my sewing room, to which I just added a Slant O Matic 503A...talk about a happy woman. This serger is the perfect fit. Take your time, get up and do something else when you get frustrated. Watch videos. Practice. Once you get it. You've got it. Let patience have her PERFECT WORK. It's so worth it. Besides, you can zig zag or overlock seams on your regular machine until you get the hang. But hang in there, the stitches here are soooo much better. Happy serving!!!
