A serger, also known as an overlock sewing machine, is used to sew a seam, trim off raw edges, and finish an edge all at the same time. Depending on the fabric, the serger will sew a stretchable, durable seam and will prevent fraying.
The Brother 1034DX Serger is a 3/4 serger, which can sew with three or four threads. The serger can sew overlock, narrow overlock, rolled hem, and blind hem. Depending on your fabric, you might need to sew a seam first on a sewing machine before using the serger.
