This is my first post to this forum. I finally broke down and bought a serger. I bought the Brother 1034D from Wal-mart after doing a search here and reading one post that said a lot of the diaper sewing moms have that!<br><br>
My question is this:<br><br>
In serging together three layers of hemp terry (in the hourglass shape), I discoverd that the sides were great, but the rounded ends sort of "ruffled". What setting(s) should I use to make it lie down flat? I'm thinking that the differential settings are what I need to adjust--but how (if that is indeed correct).<br><br>
Also, any other tips on sewing on hemp in general?<br><br>
TIA!<br><br>

I flip my differential setting to "gather" when I'm serging knits, especially on doublers. You have to play with how high to set it, it depends on how stretchy the knit is and how much ruffling it's doing.

My blade has a hard time cutting all 3 layers and we've had to start doing just 3 b/c the corners were rolling up under the needles instead of cutting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I am seriously thinking about getting a new serger even though mine is a good brand and I've only had it 2 years <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
