Considering a new machine?
What to Bring and Test on Sewing Machines
•Write a list of the kind of sewing you do so the dealer can help you find a machine that is suitable to your needs.
•Analyze which type of fabrics you would use the most and take samples or scraps with you.
•Test basic sewing techniques that you use on the sewing machines that you are considering. Make up sample facings, collars, multiple layers to top stitch or what ever you sew before you go to the sewing machine dealer.
•Even if you aren't planning on sewing buttonholes, test them on the machine you are considering purchasing. Look for even balanced stitching no matter what direction the machine is sewing.

Understanding Serger Stitch Types
Overlock? Cover stitch? Flatlock? Rolled hem? Ah! So many stitch types!
When it comes to sergers, there are many different stitch types so we have explained the most common for you. Luckily, the stitch names usually describe what the stitches do.
•An overlock stitch encases the seam and locks the edge of the fabric with threads to keep the edge from raveling and give a professional finish.
•A cover stitch is used most commonly to create a hem. The hem fabric is folded and the stitches cover the folded, raw edge. Cover stitches are commonly found on store-bought t-shirts.
•A flatlock stitch, as the name implies, joins two separate pieces of fabric in a seam that opens out flat.
•A rolled hem covers the edge of fabric in a tiny roll of thread. This is most commonly seen on lightweight fabrics and table napkins.
