This new Brother top of the line serger will add a professional look to your next project with serged seam finishes. Garment seams lie flatter and look better with an overlock stitch. Plus, home décor projects often suggest the use of a serger for rolled hems and secure seams and differential feed. Choose from a 2, 3 or 4 thread look and enjoy the new easy one-touch needle threader for threading two needles. The 4234DT features two needles with a differential feed ratio of 0.7 to 2.0 for improved stitch quality. Create stitches from 2.0mm to 4.0mm in length and 5.0mm to 7.0mm in width.

Dear Mr. Douthat, I am interested in buying my first serger. I am already familiar with Brother sewing/embroidery machines and love them, so I was looking at the Brother 1034D and the Brother 4234DT. Can you compare and contrast these models. I do like the auto threader option, not sure it is a must have on a serger though. I am open to other brands and factory serviced options as long as they have the same warranty.... Kayla, all Brother sergers regardless of model or condition (brand new or factory serviced) have the same 5Yr Parts, 2Yrs Electrical and 90 Day Service Labor Warranty nationwide at Brother ASC Authorized Service Centers. . Short list of wants: Easy (color coded) threading Most all sergers have color coded threading. Automatic needle threaders are more important on a serger since there are 2 needles instead of one, the foot sticks out in front so it is harder to hand thread each needle without tweezers. If you have ever threaded a Brother embroidery or sewing machine, the serger uses the same automatic needle threader mechanism except that it is more sturdy with metal instead of plastic. Clear and easy stitch selection. Thread charts are on the machine and in the manual and on the videos. Difference is that 1034 only has 3 and 4 thread stitch configurations where as 4234DT has all three: 2, 3 and 4 thread stitches. The 2 thread is used for flatlocking, narrower rolled hems, and uses less thread when overcasting with 2 instead of 3 threads. Easy needle and foot change. All 6 feet are easy snap on, and interchangeable between all the Brother serger models. Multiple types of stitches for different fabrics and applications (I don't know if this is where a 2,3,4 vs a 3,4 comes into play) Yes, The 2 thread is used for flatlocking, narrower rolled hems, and uses less thread when overcasting with 2 instead of 3 threads. Performs some functions of a regular sewing machine so I don't have to go back and forth to much. You can't do straight stitch or buttonholes on a serger, but you can do seams with overcasting and rolled hems easier on a serger than a sewing machine since you are doing two functions at the same time and the excess fabric is being trimmed. The cutting knife is disengable in case you want to sew on a folded or cut edge that you don't want to trim. Some entire sportswear garments can be made on the serger if you don't need to go back and add any straight stitches or top stitching. Sergers are like microwaves in the kitchen. They can't do everything the stove can do but they can do some things faster and better than the sewing machine with a more professional finish. Easy to maintain. Yes, just keep the machine cleaned and oiled and change needles every 8 hours of machine time, or whenever you hear the needles popping the fabric. If you hand wheel onto the fabric to watch the stitches forming before you press on the foot pedal, you will notice any mis-threading or thread catching anywhere in the thread path and fix before the machine can break any threads or needles. . I currently want this to: Make durable seams and finishes for garments. 4 threads recommended for most seams. 3 threads for very lightweight or narrow knit seams and most rolled hems. 2 threads for light weight rolled hems (lingerie) and flatlocking. Decorative/durable edges for home decor. Yes, you can use YLI wooley stretchable nylon thread for rolled hems, and some heavier decorative threads, yarns and ribbons for embellishing garments in the top and/or bottom loopers. Sewing on elastic easily Elasticator foot is available for stretching and stitching elastic at the same time. See video at Brother SA212 Serger Elastic Gathering Foot, up to 1/2" Elastic Application, Metal Snap On Sole Feet for 900's 1034D 1134 3034D 4234DT PL2100 Blind hem stitch. Yes, a Blind Stitch Foot is included with all brand new Brother serger models (factory serviced 1034D does not include). See Brother X76661001 Blind Hem Stitch Serger Foot 2or3 Thread Op, SnapOn Metal Sole, Adjustable Hem Guide for 900 1034D 1134DW 3034D 2100D 4234DT Not too worried about a cover stitch. Brother has a separate machine for coverstitch if you ever need it. The 2340CV I want to make sure I get something that I will be happy with for years to come. You can purchase based on the differences and be satisfied with any Brother serger model, brand new or factory serviced. I would appreciate any advice that you could give me. Kalya

I'm very pleased with my purchase. I've used your website in the past and plan to use it in the future.
Frances, New York
I absolutely love this serger. The instructional DVD is wonderful. It is very easy to thread, and the tensions are so easy to adjust. The needle threader is soooo easy to use, I smile every time I do it. It’s actually fun. I LOVE threading the needles on this serger. It sews on knits like a dream, and with the easy to adjust tension dials, you can get a perfect stitch every time. The stitch finger is so easy to change out, or take out for the rolled hem. I also love the large removeable tray that acts as a table. So much easier to use than the older sergers. I couldn’t be happier with my machine. You at Allbrands get 5 stars from me.
