Janome MyLock 634D Serger
I bought my new serger about a month ago and could not be happier. About 25 years ago I bought a basic 3-thread BabyLock when sergers first came out. At the time I thought it was great, even tho' it was VERY difficult to thread and didn't have differential feed. I kept it so long because it worked, and I hate to get rid of something that still works. But in the last 5 years it hasn't been sewing very well and I decided to splurge and FINALLY buy a new one. I AM SOOO GLAD I BOUGHT THE MYLOCK 634D. I did some research and read the reviews for many different sergers. The Janome MyLock 634D had great reviews and all the options I would need, and the price was very reasonable. This serger is GREAT! It sews so smooth and quiet. It is very easy to thread. And you get so many options on it, like the rolled hem, picot edging, decorative overedging, gathering, and pin tucking. Plus it is made by Janome, an excellent brand of sewing and serger machines. I have had a New Home sewing machine, made by Janome, for 15 years. While it would be nice to have a new one, mine still works smooth and great. Plus, the MyLock gives you some great tips for serging, like how to better secure the ends when serging. The instructions are easy to understand and follow, with pictures to show you how. I have done a lot of sewing these last 30 years: 6 bridal dresses, about 20 bridesmaid dresses, too many regular dresses to count, tops, shorts, and more. Now with grandchildren I again look forward to sewing. Also, I am getting into quilting. And I know it will be enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this serger for everybody who needs a good 4/3/2 thread serger at a reasonable price. It was WELL worth the price.Read full review

Love my Janome MyLock 634D
I bought the Janome Serger because it was what I was looking for. I needed to replace my old serger of 22 Years. I own all Janome Machines. I liked this Serger because of the lower feeding of the machine. It is just a good product.

I have owned Janome or New Home sewing machines since 1970. My first one had many features not available on other machines. When I saw Janome serger, I was immediately interested. I had wanted the Janome 634D serger but it retailed between $999 and 399, out of my price range. I won the auction for this serger on Ebay at a little over $200. It has a much improved threading system, color-coded with instructions right on the door. It serges smoothly and quietly. It has easy adjustments to lengthen or widen the stitch. It has a built-in rolled hem. I love this machine.

Still learning to use it. Not an easy process, but a good machine anyway
I really love this machine, but I am still struggling with learning to thread it, which I knew would be an issue before I bought it. I guess I just need to keep practicing. Additionally, I still cannot get the tension right, but I will keep working. It is my first serger, so I know it is me and not the machine.

Heavy Duty, reliable machine
I bought this make and model after reading reviews. I needed a serger that had a reputation for being heavy-duty and able to cope with most fabrics, heavy or lightweight. The rolled overlook stitch is not as neat as the Bernina. However, the differential is excellent. Knowledge is needed on adjusting the lower and upper loopers to ensure there is no rolling over. If you are someone new to a serger, I strongly advise getting a serger with automatic threading and tension.
