My Dream Serger

No Comments |  Posted by |  Category:Sewing

Last fall, while at the fair, I decided to stop by a booth set up by a local sewing machine chain to check out some sergers. I had absolutely no intention of buying. Fast forward ten minutes, when this sweet old lady is giving me paperwork to finance the PFAFF Coverlock 4862! I hadn’t walked into that booth alone; I had my mom (an experienced sewer) with me. My mom suggested that I go take a walk to think it over. I hemmed and hawed all day at the fair; I even went back to “visit” the serger a few more times. But that $1200 price tag was just too much, so I went home empty handed.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago: I’m trolling ebay, and what do I see but a brand new Coverlock 4862 at a great price! I knew I couldn’t pass it up.

I now have the serger here with me, and I’m stoked to get it up and running. I’ve been wanting to work with knits, but my sewing machine (my Grandma’s Elna ST) just isn’t up to the job. I’ll be sure to post how the serger is working out!
