I feel like the picture describes how I feel right now. I have a seamstresses worst fear happen. My serger broke down, and I have to face the facts…
Its time to purchase a new machine.
It is bitter sweet. In one hand, I was so comfortable with my old Simplicity Serger. There were characteristics I grew to find charming; anyone else would have gone mad having to accommodate. We serged my entire wedding dress!! Talk about a machine’s commitment to the project at hand. Not once did I hear any wining or complaining.
With this hiccup, we will be pausing on Maghda. My serger broke down right in the middle of sealing up tulle ends. Until I replace my hand-me-down, I do not want to continue (nor do I know how). After all, if it’s not going to be done correctly, why do it at all!
I love my Bernette Chicago 7, I wonder what Bernina/Bernette has for sergers/overlock. I have yet to experience any issues with their products. Fingers are crossed like a soft pretzel that I am able to find something within our price range. Afterall, I still want to be able to have some money left over for fabric!!
