Can anyone recommend a serger that has a free arm & a relatively small footprint? I have read through all of the serger reviews, and none of them mention the footprint of any of the machines... I do not know where to begin...?

A very popular serger is the Brother 1034D. It's a standard serger size, which isn't THAT big. It's pretty inexpensive and does have free arm option - although free arms aren't as big on sergers as they are on sewing machines.

Since I have one, the size is about 11x11. And they usually sell on Amazon for about $200.

I highly recommend this cheap little workhorse!

I second it. I have used and abused mine for 2.5 years without servicing and it still runs amazingly smooth. For what you pay, it is excellent value.
Some ease of use features, like jet air threading, will make you go up significantly in price.

Why not visit dealers and do a test run to see if what you are referring to as a small footprint is at all possible.
