Sounds like a bent needle to me. 
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Brother 634D Serger Questions... on: June 17, 2013 06:32:03 AM
I had one of these machines for 10 years, Finally I decided I wanted a new one, bought a singer and hated it, returned it and bought a new brother (I had already foolishly sold the old one)  The new one is alot quieter but other than that it's the same awesome machine.

only straight lines are cut on the fold, it if is nipped in at the waist you either need a center back seam or you will need to cut it on the fold and add darts to the waistline for shaping.

You could use 3M super 77 spray glue to attach it to the board.

I wouldn't use poly/cotton, poly is made from plastic and isn't absorbant.

I'm thinking a variety of dollar store or thrifted picture frames,  leave out the glass and frame some brightly colored scrapbook paper.  Then use some Command Adhesive tape to attach them to the doors.  Command Adhesive comes off without much effort and doesn't damage the surface that is is used on.  I use it to hang everything so I don't have to make nail holes.

Thanks for the compliments.  You can do it, start with something simply made. 

I made the lamp from an old tripod.

Finally got the hideous 70's herculon chairs done.  Gone from Junky to Swanky and modern, looking good with the tripod lamp.

i love my serger and I use it alot.  I doesnt replace your regular machine though, it is an addition to it.  Makes sewing knits easier, give a more professional look to your projects.  Great for sewing for home dec, think yards of curtains and so on.  If you just have a basic machine you might want to get an upgrade to that first, then think serger.  Really depends on how much you think you will use it.  A basic serger can be had for about 200 bucks.

I use mine to do rolled hems, yards of ruffles, seam finishes for curtains and things.  I make alot of halloween costumes and use it alot to give a finished look to the seams and hems.
