My birthday was last week and my husband got online one morning and ordered me a Brother serger. I was excited until the box came. I have never in my life seen something that looks so complicated. I have always wanted a serger and the Brother 1034D has very good reviews and the price was right, so he ordered one. So there it sat on the table for three days, while I just looked at the box in fear. I finally did open it, which made me even more afraid to try it. The funniest part is that my husband knows more about it than I do. He keeps saying, look you can make flowers, ruffles and all sorts of stitches. Im not sure who is more excited. I have been looking through the book, and well its overwhelming, but I am determined to use it, so in the hopefully near future I will make something using my new Brother serger.
