Happy Birthday To Me!Posted: April 23, 2012
Yesterday was my 27th birthday. It was a wonderful day filled with family, friends, good food, and…a SERGER!!! I definitely have the best husband in the whole wide world. He even got me the exact serger I’ve been really wanting.
I am so excited but also a little intimidated by this amazing machine. My serger is a Brother 1034D. It seems to be the most popular for home sewers like myself. So far I have read a good chunk of the manual so that I can learn the basics, but I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of all of the features.
Yesterday I was able to successfully thread the machine with the different colored thread that comes with it. I think they use the different colors so that you can practice on scraps and easily see the placement of each thread. It’s definitely not as easy to thread as a regular sewing machine! I can see why it’s a good idea to use those large cones of thread for sergers so that you don’t have to rethread the machine all the time.
I can’t wait to make my first project with my new serger! I’m hoping to get back on the sewing wagon here pretty quick with some fun summer projects. Things have just been so busy lately that it’s been pretty impossible to get any sewing done.
