Amazon best sellers in sergers/overlocks and coverstitch machines

August 2019

I compiled a list of “best selling” sergers in November 2017 because at the time I was asked to give my opinion about a good entry level serger; I personally still like very much my trusted Janome 990D. The Janome 990D is still sold by some stores ( ex. Sewingmachinesplus.com, Inc., the direct link to it is here) but of course by now there are a number of newer models from Janome and other manufacturers, I myself have reviewed the excellent Juki MO-2000. Of course this is in a different price class than an entry-level serger. 

In November 2017 the list was as follows

1. Brother 1034D 3/4 Thread Serger
2. SINGER 14CG754 ProFinish Serger
3. JUKI MO644D Portable Serger
4. Brother 3234DT 2, 3, or 4 Thread Serger with Differential Feed
5. SINGER 14SH6540 Differential-Feed Serger
6. Brother Designio Series DZ1234 Serger
7. Janome MyLock 634D
8. Juki MO-735 5-Thread Serger & Cover Hem
9. Janome Cover Pro 1000CPX Coverstitch Machine
10. Juki MCS-1500 Cover Stitch and Chain Stitch Machine

How does the list look like now ? See below. Please note: I will only consider machines that have good reviews. Machines with a large number of negative reviews will be skipped even if in the best selling list. Also, since the list is based on the volume of sales, do not expect to find high-end machines here; most are entry level, some are older models. I don’t own any of them though, as I said my current workhorse is a Janome 990d and I am looking forward to the day I can afford a Juki MO-2000!

I have a piece of advice though: like with all purchases, you should carefully evaluate your needs ( what kind of stitches you really need ) and situation ( how far are you from a service center, should things go wrong ) and then buy the best machine that you can afford. If maintained properly, a good serger will serve you faithfully for years. You will grow to know it, its quirks, its good and bad points, and in time you will also learn to use it better and better.

as of April 3, 2020 10:36 pm

Features

  • Cover stitch. Perfect for various applications such as simple hems, sleeve cuffs and necklines. Since the stitching stretches, it is ideal for stretch fabrics
  • Chain Stitch. Since the lower thread forms a chain on the wrong side of the fabric, the stitch is strong when it is stretched making it ideal for stitching the waist and side seams of pants. It also does well as decorative stitching for necklines
  • Presser Foot Lifter. The presser foot is higher as its tip in order to allow the fabric to be easily inserted at the start of sewing. In addition, raising the presser foot lifter to the first position raises the presser foot to 10mm
  • Adjustable differential feed - Adjust the differential feed to sew beautiful finishes, even with stretch fabrics such as knits and georgette
  • Simple looper threading - The looper can easily be threaded since it can be lowered at the press of a button
