The Best Serger Sewing Machines




The best serger sewing machines save on time, are easy to use, and give garments a professional look.

Serger sewing machine

A serger is a machine that creates special stitches, and can finish a raw edge of fabric, as well as trim and finish a seam simultaneously.

It trims the seam and encloses the seam allowance or tip of the fabric, inside a thread casing, in a single step. The width and density of the stitching are two of the various elements that a serger offers.

Options are different for every serger. What are your serging needs? The more features you will need in a serger, the more you can expect to pay for such a machine.

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Purchasing A Serger

  • Will you be using the decorative stitches available on some of the more expensive models?
  • Is there local servicing available or must you ship your machine away for servicing?
  • Are there classes included with the purchase of your machine?
