Short on space but big on sewing?

Consider the 8002D as the next level of sewing, with a minimal footprint. A serger will provide your sewing projects with the final step of finishing seams or quick and easy rolled hems. Plus, using a serger will turn tricky projects with knit fabrics, into a breeze. This compact model will upgrade your sewing space, without sacrificing the valuable table space that a full sized serger might!

The value of differential feed adjustment – This dial will greatly help to minimize any puckering or stretching that could occur on other sergers with tricky fabrics. Two feed dogs are used in this system; one feeds the appropriate amount of fabric for the setting on the stitch length dial and the other pulls or pushed the fabric according to the ratio set on the differential feed dial. Puckered edges on woven fabrics are prevented by setting the differential feed dial between 0.5 and 1.0. Stretched edges on knit fabrics are prevented by setting the differential feed dial between 1.0 and 2.25.

Sewing right out of the box! Opened the box, watched the DVD, played with a few scraps and had a knit top sewn up in under an hour! Easy to use and fine tune after watching the DVD, reading the manual and tinkering with tension controls. Lots of great serger/tension tutorials online too. Haven’t had to thread the machine yet but color coded thread guides should help a lot. A great Janome machine at a really great price. Treat yourself and enjoy!

So Far So Good I have been contemplating a serger for at least three months and have read plenty of reviews. Truthfully everyone directs you towards the entry level Brother, which is a great product but knowing the quality of Janome, I really wanted one. So far I have not been disappointed at all. The serger comes pre-threaded with white thread, of course I wanted to finish something in black so instead of doing the “easy way” of threading (tying off on the previous threads), I decided to thread the machine myself. The DVD is great to have since I loaded in my laptop and was able to pause and rewind on demand as I was figuring out how to thread the machine. I only had difficulty threading one of the loopers (the Upper Looper thread) but eventually was able to successfully thread all four cones and start serging.I love the serger! it’s easy to use, easy to adjust the double knifes are extremely sharp (first project was with denim), and amazingly quiet (at least to me). I highly…

Great serger! I bought this product about six weeks ago. I have serged a handful of projects on it. I am very pleased with it. I have re-threaded it, used the standard stitch and rolled hem. All have gone smoothly. I am an experienced sewer, but this is the first serger I have owned. I sense a whole new world of creativity coming my way!
