Brother 1034d Serger Review, Pros & Cons Plus My Personal Opinion on if This Machine Is Worth It or Not.
After trying out multiple brands and models of sergers, I’ve decided to share one of my favorites with you!
When I was looking to buy my first serger I didn’t know where to begin. I did my own research online, but could not decide which serger was right for me. After trying out multiple sergers over the years, I’ve come to find a few that I love.
If you don’t know what a serger is, be sure to check out my post HERE where I go over everything you need to know about a serger and why you should get one!
Brother 1034D Serger- The Best for Beginners
The Brother 1034D is in my top favorite sergers, in fact, it’s the one I recommend most of my readers get.
If you are new to serging, the Brother 1034D offers many features that are perfect for a beginner.
One of the best things about this machine is its incredibly affordable price point. As one of the most inexpensive sergers on the market, you really get a great machine for your money.
Easy to Use
The Brother 1034D is easy to use, even for beginners. If you’re like most sewists, you’re probably nervous about using a serger because it looks complicated. Let’s face it - no one wants to waste time and money on something that is going to take forever to learn.
Unlike other sergers on the market, the 1034D is incredibly easy to thread and even easier to use. The machine features a color-coded guide to help you easily and quickly thread your machine.
Another perk that the Brother 1034D offers is the accessories it comes with. While every serger varies on what it comes with, the Brother 1034D comes with some of the most accessories I’ve seen with a serger.
Currently, the Brother 1034D comes with a needle set, tweezers, cleaning brush, 4 spool nets, soft protective cover, trim trap, hex wrench, and three presser feet (standard, gathering, blind hem).
