My serger just broke, while I was completing an order for a Canadian customer. Luckily I had plenty of the hemp inserts made up, but it busted while I was doing the trifold insert. Tomorrow I'll check the local sewing shop and see if they have something that handles 4 layers of hemp well. It would also be good to have a brand that can be worked on locally. I'm hoping to find out the name of a machine servicer for a friend (I emailed you already) to see if he can fix the two sergers that I have so that they don't go to waste. The Euro Pro will become a thin fabric only machine, the Simplicity may not be fixable since it's a cheap brand, so it may end up being a multi-hundred dollar investment in a new serger. Looks like the October sale may go for paying that off.

Movie night was fun, City of God was real interesting. Now I'm going to go and read for a bit so I'm not tempted to kill my serger tonight.

Ugh, I feel terrible that the Euro-Pro has not worked out for you. You want I should buy it back from you???

No, it's a fine machine, just not for 4 layers of hemp/cotton french terry. And it's only not working now because of abuse that we wrecked upon it. Once I get it (and the cheap Simplicity serger) fixed, they will be fine for "normal" duty that doesn't involve quarter inch thick piles of fabric.
