I have just purchased a white 2000 serger and was wondering if anyone had any comments or suggestions. I am an advanced beginner and am upgrading from a pfaff hobbylock 788 which I bought at a garage sale about 7 years ago. :Canada:

I have a White 1934D which is the same as a White 2000 serger except the 2000 has a few more features. I spoke to a dealer, from the internet, who said that the 1934D and the 2000 were the same and that this was a wonderful first serger for beginners, which I whole-heartedly agree with. But I do wish he had told me the difference between the two because I would have invested the few extra dollars and upgraded to the 2000. My machine came with a video and extra feet, I sent away for the Owner's workbook and the blind hem and gathering feet. After watching the video a couple of times I picked up how to use my serger w/o taking classes and have been serging ever since. The Owner's workbook which is the same as the video, but the thing about the workbook is that it is always at your fingertip without interupting everyone's tv viewing. When I first bought my machine I was extremely intimidated by it and now laugh at myself because this machine is very easy to operate, thread and maintain. You will not regret buying the White 2000 because it is a great advanced/beginner serger. I looked at serveral different brands i.e, Kenmore, Singer and White machines because I did not have money to buy a Viking or Bernina or Baby Lock. I have a Kenmore sewing machine, which I have had for over 25 years w/o any problems and concidered their serger. But the serger they had on display had no manual or anything telling what the machine was capable of doing and no salesperson around so I opted not to buy a Kenmore. I don't like Singer sewing machines so I opted for the White and have not regretted it one bit. I know you will be happy with your purchase - HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!
