Stumbled across this forum while researching machines for sale on eBay. The more I read, the less I knew
I don't sew very often. And when I do, it is the most basic of basic repairs etc. I don't have very much patience with this type of thing... however, I have the desire to make a few knit dresses.
I made several knit dresses years ago with a regular machine and maybe this is why I pretty well avoid sewing... It was very difficult to achieve half-decent seams. Truly an exercise in frustration.
Several people suggested a serger would solve my problems. I'm itching to make knit dresses again because I can't find what I want in the stores.
Could someone please recommend a make/model that will be easy to use and will create finished seams on knit fabircs. This is all I want to use it for.

I bought a White Speedylock 1600 about a month ago and I really like it for my 'first' serger. I didn't want to spend a lot of money..didn't know how much I'd use it OR if I could get the hang of it... and this fit the bill at under $200 ( on sale). I think it's a good starter and does the basics...and does a nice job on knits. The serger gives a nice finish to the seams. Might be one to consider, but I'm sure you'll get more input here on the board.
