Named for its appearance on the show “Making The Cut”, the Singer S0230 is a good quality, affordable serger.

What stands out about this serger is that it’s a solid machine that runs quietly, and smoothly.

It is also quite fast, with a very responsive pedal, and it’s able to sew at up to 1,300 Stitches per minute. Additionally, it has support for 2, 3, or 4 threads with adjustable stitch length and tension.

When it comes to rethreading, it’s a pretty easy process, by following the color-coded diagram under the font cover, you can be up and running in a few minutes.

It does some very efficient stitching as well, and works well with fabrics from single-layer cotton to multi-layer canvas.

One of the downsides of this overlock is the lack of a printed instruction manual.  Fortunately, you can view or print the manual digitally and there are some very good instructional videos available as well.

A quick tip before we move on, this model is also known as the S14-78, which is helpful to know when looking for replacement parts.

We appreciate that the 8002D is a relatively quiet, compact, and lightweight machine. It has a reliable motor and can handle a wide range of fabric weights as well.

 It also stitches nicely with either 3 or 4 threads overlock stitching capability.

We love that this serger comes pre-threaded and ready to go with white thread, making it easy to get started right out of the box.

A built-in handle on the back of the machine makes it convenient to carry, and it includes some nice extras like a set of needles, tweezers, and screwdrivers.

It also has color-coded thread paths on the inside of the door as a guide when rethreading. Though the included instructional video makes rethreading and setting up stitches much easier to learn.

The 1034D, in many ways, could be the top pick on the list. First, it’s a solidly built 3 or 4 thread serger, easy on the budget, and generally covers anything you might need as a sewing hobbyist.

Some of the things that stand out about this machine are its ease of use and versatility. It does a beautiful job on rolled hems, and the free arm is incredibly helpful, great for cuffs and sleeves.

Although it can be slightly louder than other sergers, it’s capable of performing 1300 stiches per minute on a wide variety of fabrics. It can even handle multiple layers of denim.

The 1034D also has really easy to follow color-coded thread paths on the machine. It comes pre-threaded too. This combined with the 2 included DVDs make it an excellent machine to learn on.

If this machine had to be described on one word it would be “workhorse”. Made with aluminum alloy, and weighing about 15 pounds, the MO654DE is very powerful and sturdy. Because of this, it doesn’t have issues with bouncing, and it’s quiet as well.

We love that it runs incredibly smooth and getting beautiful stitches is easy. It handles almost any fabric you can throw at it and it’s quick and easy to change to a beautiful rolled hem.

The only real downside of this machine is that rethreading it can take a little while to get down to an art. Simple and dependable, with consistently beautiful results, many owners of this serger will say it’s hard to imagine using anything else.
