Welcome to the World of Serging with the Janome Four DLB

Perhaps you purchased our Janome Four DLB serger recently? or maybe you have another very similar Janome serger? Or maybe you are thinking about possibly buying a serger?  Well, we have info for you today! 

Sergers like the Janome Four DLB serger are workhorses. Sergers tackle so many projects and power through multiple layers with ease. They take simple projects and elevate them to a professional level. Here’s a short list of things you can use your serger for, but really, you will find so many great ways to use it:

  • Finishing seam allowances in woven garments
  • Rolled hem edges
  • Serged decorative edges
  • Gathering fabrics
  • Finishing the edge on a quilt before binding. This makes your binding sit so nice and flat.
  • Adding a decorative wave to projects
  • Sewing knit clothing and other projects in one step.

The best place to start with your Janome Four DLB serger is understanding how it works, what a differential feed is, how to tweak your settings to get the finish you want and biggest of all, how to thread it. We have created 2 videos for you on YouTube which will give you the run down of all the different parts of your machine and two methods to thread it.  Here is another video. I highly suggest practicing threading your serger  multiple times. Having 4 threads to thread through the machine takes some time and the more you practice it the less time it will take you so if you break a thread in the middle of a project you can be back up and running in no time flat!

Let’s talk first projects. We have a Pinterest Board just packed full of project ideas and tips and tricks for you!  

Once you have starting, stopping, securing your tails and turning corners you are all set and ready to jump into your first big project.

Useful tools which come with your serger

Good luck with your new Janome Four DLB serger! We can’t wait to see what you create!
