Unique Features of the 14T968DC
Auto Tension System
The innovative tension system on the 14T968DC makes setting the tension for different stitch functions completely effortless. Select the stitch by letter on the stitch selection knob and it sets the tension automatically. One step and you are ready to do the most amazing stitches that you could ever imagine.
Lower Looper Auto Threaders
The Singer 14T968DC serger is equipped with auto lower and chain stitch looper threaders to make it much easier to thread the lower threads on your serger. No more having to turn the serger on its side to thread. This makes those tight hard to reach areas a thing of the past
Differential Feed System
Wondering what differential feed is? Differential feed is a two part feed dog system that allows you to change the speed of the front feed dog independently from the back feed dog. By setting the differential feed to a faster setting this allows the machine to feed stretchy material into the serger faster than it feeds the material out. This helps to keep the material from stretching and casuing a lettacing or rippling affect. Do the opposite and slow the front feed dog down and it actually will stretch a light weight material a small amount keeping it from puckering. The differential feed also helps when you are wanting to gather material.
Adjustable Stitch Width
If you need the stitch narrow or wide the adjustable stitch width knob on the Singer 14T968DC is on the outside of the machine and very easy to see and turn. Stitch width is adjustable from 4.5 mm to 7.5 mm
Color Coded Threading System
The Singer 14T968DC has a fully color coded threading system. Just follow the thread color on the tension all the way through to the end and you will never make a threading mistake. Also included with your New 14T968DC is a full color threading instruction pamplet. This walks you through the threading of your serger step by step.
Built-In Roll Hem
The Singer New Singer 14T968DC Serger has a built-in roll hem needle plate. You no longer have to take the needle plate off and switch to a differnet plate to do the roll hem. Just pull the white roll hem lever to the R position on the needle plate and you are done.
Automatic and Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure
The New Singer 14T968DC is equipped with a very unique presser foot pressure system. When you set the pressure knob to N it sets the pressure for you but if you want to lighten the pressure when sewing very delicate fabrics one turn of the knob and you are in full control. The pressure adjustment is adjustable from 1 (light presser foot pressure for thin materials) to 5 ( heavy pressure for fuzzy or thicker hard to feed materials).
Tension Release System
The 14T968DC is just like you regular sewing machine. When you lift the presser foot the tension releases allowing the threads to pull through the tensions easily. This is a big plus when you are threading your machine. It insures that the thread is pulled into the tension so your stitches look their best.

I just recommended your company to a friend.
I have used your Company before and have been very satisfied with your services.
I was extremely pleased with the service. They matched a price I had found when looking for the serger. The shipping was unbelieveably fast. The whole experience made me decide to shop first with Allbrands. I'm really excited about my serger, unfortunately I am unable to unpack & use yet with work matters. I was just starting to look at the machine & could not believe the offer on it so just had to buy it now! I absolutly would recommend Allbrands.
Thank you for the free sewing machine! I was so surprised to receive it. I hope your prosperity is great in the coming years. Than again!!
I am so excited and grateful for the free machine. Thank you!
I received my Singer 5 thread serger in very good condition and very quickly. I really enjoyed watching my order go through your place all the way to my place. Everything that should be in the box was in the box. Thank you very much for such good service.
