I got my wife a brother sewing machine a few years ago and she's gotten pretty good with it to the point of creating children's bows that she sells on etsy. As usual, I'm struggling with what to get her for Christmas this year.

Looking at Amazon it appears you would have this in addition to a regular sewing machine. I know nothing about this stuff....can someone elaborate on what you'd typically use a serger sewing machine for? I saw one review equate it to a conventional oven and a microwave, which helped...a little. Smilie

A serger creates an overlock stitch, either creating a finished look on the edge of fabric so it doesn't fray, or stitches and overlocks two seams together. If you look inside any article of clothing you will likely see a serged hem.

That being said, sergers are very specific and only good for those who have a use for them. Many people buy them and use them once or twice, or don't even open them because they're intimidated by them. They can be a PITA to thread and diagnose minor problems. Also, for just a basic overlock, many sewing machines have a stitch for this, although it's not as versatile or clean looking.

From one confused man to another, I think it sews AND cuts lol. So it basically takes OUT one extra step compared to a sewing machine but at the same time, it makes the work or design whatever you call it, have a more polished look.

Or something like thatConfused

And from when I searched online about them, many would say if you suck with a sewing machine, don't expect to magically have your work look good just from buying a serger.

Serger can not do everything sewing machine can so you might need both

How does this compare to this one:
https://www.costco.com/Brother-SM...31452.html

My wife has been complaining about hers having issues and I'm beyond clueless on this stuff. She does quilting and just random clothing repairs/alterations with hers.

when I ordered the Costco one it was on sale for 170 but I got an email that it's being delayed so I can cancel if I want. Is it overkill and not worth the extra 40 dollars? Or is this one just flat out better?

These are completely different types of machines for different types of sewing. If what she has now is a sewing machine, I can recommend the brother. People can be very picky about sewing machines though. If she is coming from a viking or something, then she will prob not look at this fondly even though if she were to try it, she may find it at least as capable.

It should be easy to tell by site. One small "spool" of thread means its a sewing machine (or even one cone or big spool), and something with 2-5 big cones of thread like this serger and it is either a serger or a cover stitch machine.

Thanks. Right now she has a really basic one I got her from Costco about 12 years ago for less than 100 dollars.

So for quilting and simple alterations, and coming from something super basic, which would you recommend?

Sorry, I missed part of your reply. she currently has a regular sewing machine with just one spool of thread. So it sounds like I should just stick with the Costco one?

Sergers are for if you want to do more advanced garment sewing for a cleaner finish/stronger seams. If she just doing basic alterations and quilting, it won't take the place of a regular sewing machine. I'd stick with the Costco one.

And I failed to differentiate since they are both Brother branded. I think you would be very safe to get her the brother sewing machine from Costco. It looks like a great machine. i've even considered getting it myself, but my older less featured brother has been a complete workhorse and there isn't really any justification to me replacing it except the lettering that the Costco one does.

Edit to say that Costco also had last weekend when i was there an in-between model that was $40 off making it $130-140 IIRC, that would also be good for her I think if that deal is still going on.

Dead deal? Only used warehouse items available for me. I should have hurried up and bought this earlier.

Darn. Deal seems to be gone now. Like many of you I had to do some research to figure out whether my wife would like this as I have no clue on what a serger was until today! :-)
