Look What the Delivery Man Brought

Late 1960's Kenmore

I started sewing a couple of years ago with a late 1960’s Kenmore sewing machine my mom gave me. The Kenmore is a sturdy machine and it works perfectly for a novice sewist that doesn’t want to get overwhelmed with a complex machine. I have made several dresses using just my Kenmore but wanted something that would help my garments last longer and look as good on the inside as they do on the outside.

Brother 1034D Serger

That’s where my UPS delivery man comes in. Today he brought me a serger! I chose the Brother 1034D model after reading many reviews on Amazon. The machine was under $200 and based on the reviews is simple to thread. I wanted a serger to make finishing garments easier and hopefully quicker. I tend to get really excited about new projects and love to search for vintage patterns and fabrics. Once I cut out the pieces and actually get started, though, I often lose interest. I think this is mainly because my desires typically exceed my skills. Here’s hoping I can marry my love for well made clothes with my ability to make them myself!
