I have owned this machine for 4-5 years now and have loved it from the start. I have never had any problems with it or the different stitch settings. There are many instructional you tube videos as well as crafty classes to help learn your machine if one is wanting help. BTW, this machine is basically the same machine as the Babylock Lauren just has a different name ;-)
Great little serger. I have owned the similar Frontier by Simplicity, but they are getting harder to find so I tried this one. It is the same and works great!
I am an experienced sew-ist. I purchased this machine from another site. IMO, this is a really nice little serger, especially at this price point. The parent company also makes Baby Loc machines. This machine was made in Taiwan. I purchased this machine because I needed a secondary serger. My Juki MO654 is always set up with specialty threads for rolled hems and I got tired of switching out the threads all the time. This AH100 machine is comparable to my Juki. They have the same quality feel, has suction cup feet so it feels stable as you sew and doesn't vibrate around on the table. It has good stitch quality and the AH100 is also very quiet. My only complaint with this machine is that while it will do a rolled hem, you must change out the face plate (which is provided) and then make a couple of adjustments. I did not know this as the description just says that the machine can do a rolled hem. Not a big deal, but still more work then just flipping a switch, which is how it is on more expensive machines. I haven't looked at the DVD....I have worked with sergers for many years and know how a serger works and how to thread it and trouble shoot.
I'm new to serging - this is my first serger and I bought it used from someone who seems to have given up on the idea of figuring it out. I have only done 3 and 4 thread serging (mostly 3) but found this machine pretty straightforward.
After about 15 minutes I had the machine threaded and ready to go.
Some of the features:
- It comes with a video that does a pretty good job of showing the features.
- The threading is color coded on the machine (although blue and green look almost the same color) so it really isn't that hard
- The pictures in the book show exactly how to place the thread
- There are pictures in the book that tell you what to adjust based on how the thread looks on your fabric
The only really annoying thing is the tiny little wrench that you need to use to get the needles in and out - hopefully I don't need to change the needles often!
As long as you make sure you have it threaded properly (including the little round tension things at the top by the dials) it works great! I currently have 3 thread and the tensions all set to 4 and am very happy with my new tool!
This little inexpensive serger is very nice. It isn't fancy, but does what I need. Simple and easy to use.
