I bought a serger! (Finally!) [Feb. 20th, 2005|05:58 pm]

After much shopping I finally purchased a serger. This was also after several months of "Do I really want to spend that much money?" dithering.

But I really want one. Besides dabbling in making clothes and SCA garb, I want to try out some of Alopex's fur serging techniques.

So now I'm the owner of a new Viking-Husqvarna Huskylock 905 serger. Nice machine. Fairly heavy (without going up to commercial grade) but without the extra computer-n-gizmo stuff. And I've used their sewing machines before and been impressed.

And, of course, the name sounds cool. I considered a Pfaff or Juki, since they also have odd names, but Husqvarna won out. :)

I'm more impressed with the "huskylock" part of it. Kinky!

Let me know how it works out. I've considered that from time to time, as I advance how I build things...
