I cannot get my serger to work right anymore!

It puckers everything. I've adjusted everthing. I even took it to the shop to have it adjusted.

Anyone else ever had this trouble? It's making me crazy.

What kind of serger do you have? How many threads (just because I don't know the models that well).

Bernina 200e, Artista V5 Designer Plus, Explorations, Magic Box, Bernina 2000DE & 335 Bernette Serger, Bernina 1530 Sewing Machine, Bernina 1300 DC Overlock (with coverstitch)

Shellymoon if your serger has electronic differential feed, it should be set in the neutral position to keep it from either gathering or stretching the fabric.

I agree about the DF adjustment and also try adjusting to a different foot pressure.
