One of the most exciting types of sewing is serging. First arriving on the sewing stage in 1909, it has evolved into a top-of-the-line Juki Serger MO-2000QVP. Engineers of this company have worked diligently to eliminate many of the problems that previously faced sewers trying to use a serging machine.
While many sewers using a serger have spent an endless amount of time trying to thread their machine, Juki has eliminated the problem with a feature called Air Threading. Under this process, the upper and lower threads are placed in small threading holes and you push a button. This causes air from the motor to push the thread through the upper and the lower loopers. There is also an auto-threader for both needles.
The machine works equally well with regular cotton and polyester threads as well as Coats stretchable thread called Eloflex, all of which can be re-threaded in any sequence. Regular sewing machine needles can be used as well as Universal, stretch or ball point. It is no longer necessary to purchase ‘special serging’ needles.
When the pressure foot is raised, all tensions are released. This eliminates the need to put the tension in 0 when changing threads.
The Juki Serger MO-2000QVP offers an LCD Screen that allows you to push a button to select a stitch type, tension, and stitch length. This saves a great deal of time and energy.
The presser foot has a marked guide to use when inserting fabric. This indicates left and right needle position as well as a knife mark for the fabric’s cutting position. A lower knife mark indicates the width of the seam.
There are five settings for seam width. These are 3-5 mm, 4-6 mm, 5-7 mm, 6-8 mm and 7-9 mm. This makes it easy to change the cutting width as required by the item being serged.
Juki has installed a differential feed that has two feed dogs, one in the front and one in the rear. Moving independently, these feed dogs can be adjusted. This ensures pucker-free seams and prevents uneven seams in knits or stretch fabrics. Gathering material is also easy to do when using this feed. The feed is easily controlled by turning the differential feed adjustment dial.
This serger uses 3, 4, or 5 threads when sewing a seam, feeds material through the machine and produces beautiful stitches while trimming off the surplus material.
The Juki serger has 15 different types of serger stitches. This provides the opportunity to use appropriate stitches and finish raw edges while working on different materials. All serger seams are stretchable which makes it possible to sew things such as cotton, wool, jersey, lace, spandex and etc.
The 3 thread super stitch is an excellent addition to this machine and is popular for edge finishing. This is the result of both looper threads meeting at the fabric edge. As the stitching proceeds you will notice that there is no puckering or curling up of the material edges.
The rolled hem is especially popular with serge users when hemming thin material such as chiffon. This is controlled by flipping a switch and is a method that does not require changing the presser foot or stitch plate. This type of hem is a great finish for medium weight cotton and sheer materials.
The serger is lightweight and handles all types of materials. Its LED Sewing Light, which is eco-friendly and energy-efficient, brightly illuminates the sewing area and does not heat up.
The upper and lower knives provide a cutting force that makes any type of fabric look professionally trimmed. If you want to make a design and not cut the material the upper knife can be deactivated.
If you wish to sew a tape into the side seams or shoulders of a garment, to prevent stretching, the standard presser has a tape guide for that purpose.
The Juki Serger MO-2000QVP engineers made a thorough study of common serger problems and have been able to develop a machine that makes serging a happy experience. A manual, complete with full instructions, comes with the machine and there are numerous online videos explaining various types of serger sewing.
