Unique Features of the 14T968DC
Auto Tension System
The innovative tension system on the 14T968DC makes setting the tension for different stitch functions completely effortless. Select the stitch by letter on the stitch selection knob and it sets the tension automatically. One step and you are ready to do the most amazing stitches that you could ever imagine.
Lower Looper Auto Threaders
The Singer 14T968DC serger is equipped with auto lower and chain stitch looper threaders to make it much easier to thread the lower threads on your serger. No more having to turn the serger on its side to thread. This makes those tight hard to reach areas a thing of the past
Differential Feed System
Wondering what differential feed is? Differential feed is a two part feed dog system that allows you to change the speed of the front feed dog independently from the back feed dog. By setting the differential feed to a faster setting this allows the machine to feed stretchy material into the serger faster than it feeds the material out. This helps to keep the material from stretching and casuing a lettacing or rippling affect. Do the opposite and slow the front feed dog down and it actually will stretch a light weight material a small amount keeping it from puckering. The differential feed also helps when you are wanting to gather material.
Adjustable Stitch Width
If you need the stitch narrow or wide the adjustable stitch width knob on the Singer 14T968DC is on the outside of the machine and very easy to see and turn. Stitch width is adjustable from 4.5 mm to 7.5 mm
Color Coded Threading System
The Singer 14T968DC has a fully color coded threading system. Just follow the thread color on the tension all the way through to the end and you will never make a threading mistake. Also included with your New 14T968DC is a full color threading instruction pamplet. This walks you through the threading of your serger step by step.
Built-In Roll Hem
The Singer New Singer 14T968DC Serger has a built-in roll hem needle plate. You no longer have to take the needle plate off and switch to a differnet plate to do the roll hem. Just pull the white roll hem lever to the R position on the needle plate and you are done.
Automatic and Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure
The New Singer 14T968DC is equipped with a very unique presser foot pressure system. When you set the pressure knob to N it sets the pressure for you but if you want to lighten the pressure when sewing very delicate fabrics one turn of the knob and you are in full control. The pressure adjustment is adjustable from 1 (light presser foot pressure for thin materials) to 5 ( heavy pressure for fuzzy or thicker hard to feed materials).
Tension Release System
The 14T968DC is just like you regular sewing machine. When you lift the presser foot the tension releases allowing the threads to pull through the tensions easily. This is a big plus when you are threading your machine. It insures that the thread is pulled into the tension so your stitches look their best.

This machine does everything promised. The auto tensions are great along with the lower looper threaders. I only wish the instructions were easier to find regarding both of these features. I am very happy with it. It runs very smoothly.

I received my machine and it was everything I expected. I was able to thread it and use it after reading the instruction video. I would have preferred a live instructional video, but these instructions are very clear. Now there is nothing I can't sew!

For a 5 thread serger, this machine is amazing!!! I have been able to master threading which took some time but was worth it. For the money it was the best spent. I have started a small business making children's clothing and what a difference it makes. Having the Cover stitch option is worth the upgrade to a 5 thread. I know a lot of people are intimidated by threading a serger, but it is very easy once you understand how it works. There was a lot of trial and error; but I found the DVD & handbook very helpful!! Thank you Sew Vac!!

I have to say this serger is fantastic and I can not believe I bought it for less than $500. Granted it does not have the self threading loopers as Babylock's $2-4k machines but it is easy enough to learn to set it up. Having previously owned a 5 thread Elna Pro5 I was well aware of problems that can be encountered with threading. If one just reads the directions, follows the pictures and the color codes the threading will become second nature. I love the triple thread cover stitch for its finishing capabilities on knits. The fact I received 6 additional presser feet really sweetned this deal. I highly recommend this serger but remember patience is needed. There is a learning curve to acquiring sewing skills and machine awareness.

I am very happy with my new singer professional serger. Delivery was timely and as scheduled. Price was great. I could not have asked for better service!

Product arrived (with some delay at UPS due to Hurricane Irene...NOT your fault!) as promised. CD helped with threading.
The following is something I think you might want to address with Singer, is that they also provide a CD-ROM with instructions/demonstrations on how to set up the machine and thread it, since it is quite complicated for the novice overlock user. (It took me 5 hours to thread and troubleshoot it until I got it right.) It might also be helpful for them to show how to start sewing overlock stitches on chiffon fabrics, which can be difficult to start (as I discovered). The machine performs beautifully!
