I've been serging for a week now, and I love it!!
I initially purchased the Finishing Touch Singer Serger, but after comparing reviews and features with the Brother Serger 1034D, I decided to purchase it also. After getting past the difficulty of removing the needle and threading the machine, I fell in love!!

Yesterday I wanted to experiment with rolling hems on fine fabrics such as silk and satin. (I have photos of my settings and end results, but I'm not sure how to post them here) Any suggestions on how to create a smooth clean finish? The suggested wide stitch finger for fine fabrics that came with the machine doesn't fit in the slot where the original stitch finger was located. Need help. thanks!!

For a rolled hem you don't use the stitch finger at all. Increase the tension on the lower looper and decrease the stitch width. Play with the length and width settings until you get the look you want.

Yes you MUST REMOVE THE STITCH FINGER!!! Add Wooly Nylon to the lower looper and maybe even the upper looper too. Play around & have fun!!!

Thanks! I didn't use the stitch finger and I used wooly nylon for the upper looper. I now have perfect rolled hems. Thanks a bunch!!

It also helps to use a wash away stabilizer on your edges when you're doing a rolled hem on delicate fabric.
