This is really a great deal. I've been looking for something to get for my Aunt for Christmas.. This might be something myself and a few other family members can chip in for.

You can't go wrong with Singer, no other brand comes close!

I'd potentially buy one if it was JUST the sewing machine. I don't need a sewing machine *and* a serger. Why would you buy both?

I ripped a small hole in one of my jeans, I thought about how easy it would be to fix with one of these.Then I realized the hole was barely noticeable and just said sew what...

Amazon has the machine by itself for $1 less. so for $1 you get a Serger with this deal.,

Don't like the fact that there aren't any reviews on the product though.

Um, just sell the serger on eBay/Craigslist/OWS protest...wait, the last one will only pay you in Starbucks coffee and cigarettes.

They do very different things. A serger finishes the seams of garments. It can't do simple mending, sew on a button, or do top-stitching. I sew clothing and quilts and can't live without both!

It's cheaper here if you don't look at the shipping cost:

Hmm... I'd sew totally buy it buy because I need a new singer but it doesn't look like it's compatible with Flacc or Ogg.

I went to the wife for an answer on that one. Apparently, the Serger is good for sewing stretchy fabric such as what we find on an average woot shirt.

So, if you ever do damage to your woot shirt, then this would come in handy. Especially if you're like me and you have a ton of "favorite" woot shirts.

My sister owns the Singer Sewing Machine and loves it. Uses it weekly and said it was simple to learn with many different stitch options.

I bought this pair the last time Woot had this deal, and we love it! Works better than advertised, and the serger sells locally for more than the combined set does here.

Moonrock asked why buy both? The serger makes all the difference between a home-sewn shirt and something that looks professionally made. Look at the seams at the end of your shirt sleeves, or at the waist. See that neat little 3/4 inch sewn strip? That was done with a serger. A standard sewing machine can't duplicate that.

A serger is so nice to have. It cuts and overlocks (finishes) all the edges. I use mine almost more than my machine. This a a great duo for the price.

Uhm, that's for just the serger. You get both here.

I have been sewing since I was a kid and prefer Singer by far. It has always been extraordinarily reliable. I've owned two Singers since the 70s (they last a long time) and used my mom's before that, and until a computer took all my time in the past 10 years, all my clothes were homemade so those machines got a lot of heavy use. If you want your garments to look professionally finished, you use the serger to finish (and trim) the seams on the inside. You can also do a professional hem with the serger and lots of other things. This price is beyond phenomenal for what you're getting.

They do different things, really. A sewing machine does all the stitches and stuff that we're used to seeing sewing machines do. A serger does edges and hems and the like. These guys explain it well: http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm

Also I've done all the research, and your name does not, in fact, have to be Sergio for you to purchase and successfully operate a serger. (But it helps.)

I already have a good sewing machine but I would love to have a serger. Why are they a combined offer?

Thanks I just noticed that woot was selling both for the price. I at first thought it was pick one. This is an awesome deal!

Right now I'm using a Singer sewing machine that was built in 1925 (yes, it's 87 years old) and was retrofitted for electricity in the 1950s. I'm ready for an upgrade.

While most Singers today are made in China, they still have a good reputation. I would also imagine that since they own such a big share of the market, parts and repair people would be relatively easy to find.

Will buying this Woot expedite my application for residency in Santa Poco?

Just an FYI for hems- this does a rolled hem, it does not do a coverhem. The rolled hem is like the thread covered edge of a sheer dress, the coverhem is what you'd find on a t-shirt hem. That takes a much more expensive serger with at least 5 threads or a specialty machine.

Would this be able to sew leather or thick fabrics?

I beg to differ. They're one of those brands that have rested on their laurels in recent years. Some are good, some are just plain lousy. I outta know, I sell 'em.

Are you kidding me? Singer is about the worst brand out there! I sew a lot and I am quite certain I will never own a Singer. They *used* to be good and if you can get your hands on a machine built 30 or 40 years ago it will last forever. But today's machines? No way!

Methinks the writers of Woot have been watching Snatch on Blu-Ray

Also, for the price this is a great starter set for almost anyone. Pity more people don't know their way around a sewing machine these days.

Since you sell this brand, ReneeDj3, what do you know and think about these two models. Good, bad, or ugly?! I am interested for my wife. Looking for a qualified recommendation. Someone who sells Singer would know. Thanks!

I have a Singer sewing machine from atleast 1970, it could be older. It works great for me. However when I was looking for a good serger I did not find any good Singers with 5 thread, so I ended up with a Bernina... Worth the added cost and bought it through a local fabric store in the DC metro area who has free classes on how to use it or help keep it running smoothly. These do need minor upkeep/maintenance if you use them often (oil or approved recommended brand-related product).

Sewing machine would only do leather if it supported a leather appropriate needle and the work would need to be done slowly if it worked at all.

Did I miss whether this came with a foot pedal for the sewing machine?

A qualified recommendation pretty much means nothing without knowing about your wife. Has she been thinking about learning to sew, or has she been sewing her whole life and is just tired of her machine?

I would class both of these as starter machines, except that the sewing machine does not have real speed control (they all have speed control with the pedal, some have limiters on the machine itself).

They will not be an upgrade from most modern machines. This might be an upgrade from the Singer serger my grandmother bought at Sam's Club in the 90s that she gave me after it sat in her garage for 10+ years.

Foot pedal is listed at the bottom as "In the box". You're good to put your pedal to the metal.
