Sergers & Coverstitch Machines


Quickly create just like a professional with your serger from A Common Thread, Portland, Oregon


While a sewing machine -- either basic or with special fashion functions -- is the place to begin sewing garments, these sergers and coverstitch machines put professional details at your fingertips. A serger or coverstitch machine uses multiple threads to cut and encase the edges of your fabrics in one sewing step.

When you choose a serger, options include number of stitches, number of threads used, and adjustable feed. Our staff is ready to help you choose the serger or coverstitch features that will take your sewing to the next level. And as always, each machine comes with free Guide Classes and a Warranty!
