      Small but Mighty!
      I am starting a small clothing business and needed a serger, but don't have much money in my budget. I have always loved Kenmore products for their quality, so I looked on the website and found this serger, saw the great reviews, and even better price and knew this was the one. Although it came pre-threaded, I wanted to learn to thread it myself. I was a little intimidated and thought I'd never get it threaded right, but I watched and followed the dvd that came with the serger and it was really very easy. This machine is a dream; I run it for hours and it never hesitates, snags, or tangles - it is a little powerhouse! Thank you Sears Kenmore!

      serger by Kenmore

      Watch the video -practice-thread it correctly-make sure the needles are in right and it should run well-i have worked on dresses for weddings and things have turned out beautiful and then i have run into problems where threads broke non-stop-patience and proper use usually solves the situation. Sears needles work great too.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Kenmore Serger sewing Machine is easy to use

      I have had my  serger for a few years. I love the way it is so easy to use . However the only problem I have had it changing the neddles. I find that the screw in which you loosen the neddles is hard to get to. I haven't been able to use if for I can't change the needle. I hope to find an off set screw driver that will help me to change the neddle. I found that it sewed through thick fabric with ease and help me make a ball gown with puffy sleeves.

      Kenmore Serger 16677 - a real workhorse for the serious sewer

      I have several sergers and the Kenmore 16677 is my go to machine for clean and consistent stitching!  Threading any serger the first time is challenging but the DVD  which accompanies the serger  shows how to thread it- as with all sergers that I have used changing threads on the two loopers should be done by tying the new thread onto the one already threaded thru and running it through the machine- the easiest way to change colors- you do have to thread the two needles but those are easy to do.

      This machine  is not a fancy  multi foot wonder but truthfully I really just want it to work  on stretch fabrics with a minimum of fuss. The less complicated the better for those who do lots of serging  or production sewing. This Kenmore for the price  is  a great machine ...simple and efficient and produces a great stitch.

      I solved the  movement of the machine on my table by placing it on  a piece of matting that is used to keep a rug from slipping (I found some placemats on sale that were this rubberized mesh) and that works perfectly. The machine stays on place on my dining room table.

      I have been using sergers since the mid 1980s- It is important not to force any fabric jam through - not to depend on the upper knife to slice through thick heavy fabric without pretrimming and to treat every machine with care. This machine sews all thicknesses without a problem - has enough power to do so.

      Overall this is my favorite- I just bought a second one to keep threaded with black thread!

       

       

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      small, noisy, overpriced for level of quality

      This machine is noisy and not as easy to thread as some other models on the market (the lower looper has no threader mechanism: it must all be done with tweezers through two open panels), but it is compact and does the job adequately.

      It doesn't feel like a solid, well-built machine when stitching: much like driving an old car that needs work, vs. a newer luxury model. I wouldn't try heavy duty usage or very thick fabrics.

      This machine is not worth more than $200; if you can get it on sale or at a discount, great -- but otherwise, you can get better machines with more accessories and easier threading for the same price, like the Brother 1034D.

      The Kenmore Serger Sewing Machine is a must to have for sewing.

      I have owned a Sears Kenmore Serger Sewing Machine for about nine years now. I feel it is a must to have for sewing. The problems I have with this serger are threading the threads. They can get complated at times. I leave my threads threaded at all times. If I break a thread I don't have to go thru the process of trying to get it rethreaded and if I need to change colors of the thread I just follow the old color that I already had threaded. It is a wonderful machine and will give me a professional look when I am finished sewing. I use the serger on a lot of different projects. I have made slacks, dresses, skirts, pillows, drapes and many other projects. My mother-in-law first introduced this machine to me. She owns a shop where she makes vestments for the churches and all of her vestments look like they have come from a high end clothing store somewhere in New York City. Once I tried her machine I was totally hooked and had to have my own. Every project that I have done I will get complements on and I tell people that the Kenmore Serger has made a major difference in my sewing and finished products. The machine takes a lot of hard work out of my jobs. My serger does not require much work to maintain. I do keep a cover on it at all times when I am not using it and I feel that that helps keep it clean and each and every time I turn it on it works well for me. It does not make a loud noise and if kept clean and maintence kept up on I feel it will last me for many, many years to come. I have recommened this product to many of my friends.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Love this excellent machine!

      I bought this machine about 2 years ago. I have sewing experience(SAHM sewing for 2 girls and 1 boy), and have used a couple of different kinds of sergers (babylock and a bernina). I was looking for a good, inexpensive serger that would work for me for many years to come, and for many different projects. This machine has been great. I have used it on a flower girl dress, easter dresses, and to sew on jeans. I think I have broken one needle, and that was because I serged over a pin. It threads very easily, I ususally use 3 threads, but has the capability for a 4 thread 2 needle set up.

      Overall this is a great machine for a beginner to intermediate level sewer. It has done more than I thought I might need. The one thing I would change would be to have a thread/cut off fabric catcher. As I learned when I was shopping for a serger, they don't usually include such things on machines anymore. I feel as if my money was well spent, and this has and will continue to be a great machine.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      I loved it, works perfect, great price and size, fits anywhere.

      I loved it!!!

      the size is great and it works perfectly fine;

      having so many stitches gives you a wide range of posibilities.

      Its super easy to understand everything since the instructions guide you perfectly fine, with images and everything.

      It does make noise, but I suppose all sergers do.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Constantly Aggrivated and Very Dissapointed

      First off, I'd like to say that I consider myself a very patient person.  I have never written a review in my life, but this machine has been so frustrating that I'm actually taking the time to write this:

      I recently started a clothing and costume design business and got this serger in December.  I use it daily (or try to) and it has given me a ton of grief and aggrivation.  The needles are constantly breaking, along with the thread.  Within a few weeks of having it, I had to take it to a Sears repair shop.  They said an arm was bent on it and they had to order a part.  During that time, I used a few friend's sergers who I shared an office with.  I had no trouble with their's at all.....never broke a needle and rarley broke a thread.  I finally got my machine back after over a month.  Within the first 10 seconds of using it, a needle broke.

      Almost every day this machine has left me feeling very angry and frustrated.  If you are looking for a serger, I would reccommend spending a few extra bucks and getting a better quality machine.

      The Kenmore serger sewing machine was a disappointment.

      Several weeks ago I purchased the Kenmore Serger Sewing Machine and was very disappointed and after 1 week I returned it.  I tried for 1 week to make this machine be something that I could use for years.  I am not new to operating a serger machine, and found this machine to be very cumbersome and very difficult to thread.  I watched the accompanying DVD several times and still I was unable to make this machine serge for more than 4" before the thread would break and then I had to rethread all over again.  My first sewing machine in the 1960s was a Kenmore and I found it to be very easy to operate which made me feel  comfortable about purchasing the Kenmore serger, but I was so wrong.  After many attempts, I had no choice but to return the machine to Sears.  I was very disappointed in the operation of this machine, but this in no way will keep my from purchasing Kenmore products in the future.

      Finally, a seger I can use, the Kenmore Serger Sewing machine!

      I recently purchased the Kenmore serger. Finally, one I can use. This is my 3rd serger in the past 2 years. I thought it was just me. They took forever to thread, then finally when threaded, after a couple of stitches, the threads would break. Well, I have the same thread, the same knowledge, but now with this serger, NO PROBLEMS! I threaded it right on the first try with no problem. Switched from blade up to blade down with no problems. Did gathers, rolled edges, and overlock without having to re thread one time. I made a rice bag, eye glass cases, and 2 pillow cases in the past 2 hrs.  I love this machine. I can't wait to create more things for my family! Well built. Easy to understand. Comes with a dvd but I didn't even watch it yet. You do have to buy all your special feet seperately. But the price is GREAT for this little mighty machine! I LOVE IT and would recomend it to any one. Especially someone who has never had one and would like to upgrade their sewing skills without getting frustrated. Thanks Kenmore!!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
