Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with my purchase This is my first use of a serger. I been using a Brother sewing machine for about 5 years and really love it, so when I started looking for a serger, I wanted to look at Brother first. I read other reviews to help decide. When I made my purchase, I read through the entire user guide, threaded the machine as directed and tested on scraps. I was able to have successful results the first time. I have found when I use different weights of fabric I have best results when I refer to the user guide to determine the appropriate needles, thread weight and tension. Then I test on scraps until I get the correct tensions for the results for which I am looking. I am still learning and experimenting with what I can do with my Brother Serger but I have been very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely pleased I am very pleased with this machine. It's my first serger and it works like a dream. The picture threading instructions were a touch confusing, but overall very simple to thread and use. Love it!!
Date published: 2017-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving It I have recently learned to sew using a step by step guide book and decided a serger was my next machine to conquer. While the 1634D doesnt do a cover stitch, it does any other stitch I have come across. This is a great machine to learn my new skill because once I figured out how to thread it properly, I have been able to sew nonstop. One word of advice, oil the parts before anything else if you want a smooth running operation.
Date published: 2017-07-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Machine I really like this machine and it seems fairly easy to operate. The only problem I have had is finding instructions to use it in video form. I wish it came with a tutorial!
Date published: 2017-07-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my serger I Love my Brother serger. I am new to serging so I saw many online videos to help me thread. Now I enjoy serging more than regular sewing. The price was the most affordable than any other brand and since my sewing machine is Brother (and it's been great) I knew It would've a good buy :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother 1634D Serger So far, I am loving my new Brother Serger. I previously had a Singer Serger, but it just got old. Since I had experience with one, I didn't find it difficult to operate. I love the professional stitching. I plan on learning how to use the gathering feature in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Easy to thread. The videos and instruction book explains quite well how the machine works. It really speeds up the sewing process and give the finished product a profession look. I really like it a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1st serger owned Sew like a breaze, nice and quite, until the tmiming messed up and the manufactory waranty picked up. The place they sent us to to fix the serger did a great job. One happy serger again.
Date published: 2017-06-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspired by Brothers products Love, love, love my brothers surger! It is easy, percise, and operates smoothly. I make lots of tote bags, lounge wear and pajamas. My surger gives all my projects a professional look. My first surger was a Singer that gave me problems from beginning to end. I spent three times the cost in repairing that machine. I purchased a Brothers embroidery machine, and love the easy operation and dependability of it. That's why I brought a Brothers surger. Next is their sewing machine. In love with their products!
Date published: 2017-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for the money Runs beautifully! No real problems. The only thing hard is changing the needles. They both have to be done at the same time. You need to hang onto both of them and screw them in at the same time. Hard to do, but I figured it out.
Date published: 2017-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm locked with my overlock from Brother. I'm so happy to add this wonderful machine to my sewing room. I'm not a pro, but still have dreams of doing some projects for children over the months to come. I've always loved to sew and this Server makes it much simpler.
Date published: 2017-05-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Machine I have never used a serger before. The video was difficult to watch on my computer. It wouldn't go to full screen. The manual was a better fit for me. (Old school). Still experimenting with the machine. Mainly interested in type of stitches and how to use them with my art. I have several sewing machines, (Viking, Singer and Brother), that I use and the Brothers perform very well. I use the Brothers for simple stitches and I am very pleased with them. I also have several antique machines and as one would expect they sew beautifully. (Can't beat an old faithful). Yes, I would recommend this machine to a beginner. Have a great day and happy sewing, quilting and creating new works of fiber art.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Love my server. The only problem I have is when I start to sew most of the time I have to start it be turning the wheel. I don't know if it is because it is not broke in good yet or not. Other than that I love it.....
Date published: 2017-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied customer! I am very happy with this purchase. I am a beginner and just learning. I was somewhat worried about the threading of the machine... but to my surprise has been super easy! I have had no trouble. I am impressed with its performance and how professional the stitches look.
Date published: 2017-04-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Still trying to figure it out Straight overlooking stitch does very well. The issue I have is when I want to switch the stitch it binds up every time. I'm very frustrated and want to return it. Has anyone else had this issue? Worked on it for more than 2 days to use a different stitch and it will not let me.
