The Project Runway™ Limited Edition 5234PRW is the first serger to be introduced into the Project Runway collection of machines. This serger will add a professional look to your next project with serged seam finishes. Garment seams lie flatter and look better with an overlock stitch. Plus, home décor projects often suggest the use of a serger for rolled hems and secure seams and differential feed.

Choose from a 2, 3 or 4 thread look and enjoy the new easy one-touch needle threader for threading two needles. The 5234PRW features two needles with a differential feed ratio of 0.7 to 2.0 for improved stitch quality. Create stitches from 2.0mm to 4.0mm in length and 5.0mm to 7.0mm in width. The included large extension table adds extra space for handling large projects and the free arm makes it easier to sew sleeves, trouser legs and other hard to reach places.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Came adjusted 5..4..2..1 out of the box All the instructional video demos show 5..4..5..4 ...Instructions indicate to adjust ..according to “Which “ thread breaks..upper or lower looper...and adjust the machine on a certain manner...starting sequence...according to the aberration of the stitch configuration ...pictured in the manual....It doesn’t work well when the 4 thread tensions are “out of whack”....right out of the box.....IF it is not appropriately balanced....right out of the box....DON’T waste your time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fear serging! If I can you can too I have had two other sergers ( different brand ) although The last one sewed well I had to take it to the dealer to thread it. I decided to try this serger because I read a sewers blog where she had been afraid of serging and tried the pro serger and loved it. POSITIVES: watch the YouTube video and thread then thread it. After doing it twice with the video I thread the machine all the time- no tying off for me! The reccomended stitch settings in the manual have been golden. I've run quilts through it to give a different edging and they wash, wear and hold great. It doesn't take long to get to know. It is reliable. I am sewing more and different types of garments, accessories and quilts because of this serger. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great serger but could use better suport manual I have used this machine for about a year and ind it very easy to use and it produces high quality seams. I would have given it a 5 if it had better support documents. a product is only as good as your knowledge of how to use it . Like many machines it is probably not being used to its full capacity only because i don't have a good source of references for doing so.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok It needs a more detailed manual. I like the serger but have not used it to its potential. I have another sewing/embroidery machine that I learned all about it from the manual. I have to live on Internet for this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase Very nice serger and reasonably priced considering the features and accessories that are included. Makes a beautiful overlock stitch and is a solid machine. I like the needle threader. You have to follow the instruction manual to make it work but then you're all set. I've had this machine over a year and it has been very reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever! Have had it less than a month. It's been in the shop once to replace the needle plate. Will not do a rolled hem on knits or fleece. I have had better luck with my $150 serger. I am ready to throw it out the window. Unfortunately for me, the company I purchased it from does not take returns. I've tried everything. Only thing left is to try to sell it and take a loss. Have always had great luck with Brother machines, but this is just a piece of junk

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great serger This serger is one of the easiest machines to thread that I have ever used. It also produces great seams. The only thing I do not like about it is the threader for the needle. It does not work well. I just thread the needle traditional way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Serger for all projects I love the Project Runway Serger. It is excellent for all serger project types. The extended table for easy manuvering of fabric while sewing is excellent . also like the trim trap for catching fabric ends. Lots of features including the rolled hem. spool caps so that you can use ordinary sewing threads, great speed. not very noisy. The elastic foot is a breeze to use. Love the removable stitch fingers. You can use this for lots of projects. Great with demin as well as light weight fabrics. (you can purchase the denim needles) I would love to have another one but cannot afford 2. Cons: There should be more videos posted on you tube showing persons making projects just like with the 1034 D All in all a great buy.
