1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bought used serger... what next? on: November 28, 2008 06:09:14 PM
I would take it home, see what it can do.  I find alot of people don't use their sergers, (can't understand that) but most of the time they haven't been hurt any. Not a lot to maintaining them according to my repair guy,no oil either. Guess he is right at least for me. I bought mine in 92 or so, been great and I use mine all the time! I certainly got my money worth out of it. It has been a very close pal. Wink and it still going. yippee!

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: How many machines do you have? on: November 28, 2008 05:03:03 PM
I have a Janome 3400 (I think) 2006, I gave my brother machine away when I bought this (don't miss it either) I do miss my 1886 Ward's treadle, purchased for $10, quite unique...sorry to say I sold it for $50 because I moved. I have a 1951 Singer at my neighbor's attic, well I gave it to them and they said I can have it back at anytime, so I might take them up on it. I have a serger I bought new in 95.

It has been my experience that it just makes since to take it to the professional, for $50 or so you should be able to get the machine fixed. It sounds like a very good machine, so it doesn't hurt anything to get it tuned and repaired and oiled. I had a brother, you get what you pay for. (The inexpensive one's at wally world kind), mine worked fine for mending and light sewing, but if you do any quilting of any kind I wouldn't advise it. I gave it to my sister when I got my Janome.
I also learned the hard way never ever ever let anyone use my machine.
