I just got my new serger yesterday and thank jeebus it came with a DVD. The manual might as well have been written in chinese cause it all made no sense to me Huh I would like to set it up for a 3 thread instead of four because a rolled hem uses a 3 thread and I figured I'd be using those two the most. Is that a correct assumption? What stitch do you all use most?

I actually use the 4 thread mock safety stitch the most.  If I am working with a finer fabric I may use the 3 thread instead.  I only use my rolled hem for decorative edges, napkin finishes, etc.

I ditto stacysews.

To change it to a rolled hem you have to muck around with some other stuff anyway, so switching from 4 to 3 threads doesn't make it any more of a big process.
