Summary: I have a Brother serger and wanted to get a machine that had the cover stitch capability. Several friends suggested that I get an additional machine rather than upgrade to a serger with cover stitch ability. Most said the converting a serger to the cover stitch was difficult and it would be easier to have two machines. I purchased the Brother 2340CV machine and could not be happier. I have my Brother serger next to my Brother cover stitch and both work very well.
Summary: I love Brother products so after reviewing it, I was sold. It was just what I needed. I love everything about this product. However; releasing the tension takes a few tries to get use to it. After that it's very simple and easy. "He ain't heavy, he's my Brother", there is nothing to compare when you have a faithful Brother around :) I would love to see a free arm model in the very near future. I would buy this over and over again!
