I am going to ask for a serger for my birthday in a month.  I would like suggestions for brands and models that are under $250.
Thanks!

Very few are close to that, the budget alone will limit your options. Most sergers start at about $300 & go up from there, way up.

Probably your only option for finding a decent one at that price is looking on eBay for used machines (or in a local shop for used machines). I got an awesome Babylock for $80 with shipping on eBay and don't think I would have been able to get anything near that cheap anywhere else.

This is a good Serger.  This is my first one and has been easy to use.

Here is a link to the reviews. http://www.amazon.com/Brother-1034D-Lay-Thread-Serger/dp/B0000CBK1L/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1223967152&sr=1-1

yea the brother is the best bang for your buck especially for a beginner.
I have an older brother 929d and it was very easy to learn to thread and had great instructions.
