Hello All,

Wondering how many have the 1300 serger? What do you like about it? What do you least like about it? Is it user friendly?

Thanks to everyone for all your help and support on this board!

I have the 1300.

The 5 needle function is nice to have for some things,,, got used to that

with my original Elna.

What I like least about it is changing between the serger/overlocker and

the overstitch mode. I expect it becomes easier with practice. If I had

to do it again, I would probably get the 1150 (not sure of exact number)

(one step down) and get a separate cover stitch machine.

All of the Bernina sergers are easy to use and thread.

I also have had the 700D and loved it. I traded it for the 11xx serger as

it and the 1300 have heavier motors. The 700 was fine for normal use, but

I do A LOT of sergng these days and on heavier materials so I traded up.

I second Diane's suggestion of 2 separate machines if you can afford

both the cost and the space.

with both.

I have the 1300MDC an it is a wonderful machine. I do not yet have the time to use it to it's potential. I took the classes for it and was frustrated in the coverstitch class because the dealer had an employee teach it that had the 1100 and did not know how to thread for coverstitch. The manual is not detailed enough, however I found threading diagrams for the Juki 735 serger (which is it's clone without the lcd screen) that are more detailed and easy to follow. After we fumbled through together in class, I loved what it could do. It isn't hard to convert but by now I would have to follow the diagrams again. But it would get easy by practicing. What I love it the micro control to get perfect tension easily.

My dealer recommended having two machines - I have the 800 and the 009 coverstitch/chain stitch. Was the same amt of money as the 1300. I am glad I did that. I like not having to convert back-and-forth.

I am a Bernina girl, thru and thru, but I kind of wish I had shopped a little more. I'd love to have at least tried a serger that has a binder attachment. Don't know how well they really work, but wish I'd done more research first. That being said, I do like my machines - there is a learning curve. We have bonded now, but I said a lot of bad words to them while we were getting to know each other! LOL
