After waiting through two Christmases and a Birthday, I'm going to do a little research before I put "serger" on my Birthday list again. 

I've serged just a little with one from a friend, just enough to know that I want one.  I'm not a terrific seamstress, I've made a few things for my daughter, lots of crafty things, housewares, etc.  So I probably don't need anything very fancy, just a basic model that will work well and easily for a long time. 

Any advice?

I have the Brother 1034D and it's great I use it all the time.  Its easy to tread and use.  I will send you a PM.

I have the Singer 14CG754 Commercial Grade and it works great! My aunt used it a lot before giving it to me (she was a professional seamstress) so I had it tuned and cleaned before I started using it a lot. The only thing is sometimes when I sew reeeeeally fast it unthreads itself and I have to rethread the loopers. I'm not sure what the problem is since it's not described in the manual, but it only happens when I'm sewing at practically the speed of light. Every machine has its limitations. For just regular use it's a great machine and it's a lot more affordable than some other models.

Thanks for the help, both of you!  I've got some research direction now, and some options.
