So, my fantabulous Huskylock s25 is supposed to arrive by UPS today, so I've been on a serger research rampage for the last couple weeks. One of the only "cons" of the s25 that I've seen mentioned is the lack of a free arm, but some reviewers are dismissing that as a non-issue because you can always "sew inside the circle" for hemming sleeves or pant legs.
I *think* I have an idea of what this "sewing inside the circle" means, but would really appreciate it if anyone can confirm. Diagrams or YouTube videos would be especially awesome.
I'll be sure to post a review of the s25 after a couple weeks of fiddling with it, because there doesn't seem to be much out there on this machine. I know serger basics from high school Home Ec but have sewn exclusively on a 1950's Singer Slant-o-Matic for the last 5 years, so buying the s25 is a little like going from a Huffy with training wheels straight to a Lance Armstrong racing bike (or, perhaps, a 500HP Harley). The deal was just too good to pass up!
