My New Gadget! Brother 3034D Serger Machine

Brother3034d

Iyahhhhhh krup krup krup (bunyi tulang jari jemari) Wahh gila lamaaaaaa tak update blog, my last update was for MH370. That was like more than a month ago. The ill fated plane still has not been found yet, pray for the best.

Thousand apologies, for abandoning this blog, I am too preoccupied with my current obsession….SEWING!! Haha finally , daftar masuk kelas menjahit. I should have enrolled longggg ago. Better late than never. Ingat lagi ada la sapa tah, perli I kt blog ni, kata I fashion designer cokia sbb tak tahu menjahit. Well, I would like to thank that lady (I believed she’s a lady) for leaving such comment in my blog, sbb her comment did motivate me to learn more about sewing. Big thanks to you stranger! Really appreciate your mean comment. Hehehe.

Tujuan utama belajar menjahit bukanlah utk mengambil tempahan, tetapi lebih kepada untuk “backup plan” , sbg contoh kalau tiba-tiba tailor2 saya ada emergency atau masalah kesihatan tidak dapat jahit, tidaklah production terhenti terus, saya masih boleh keluarkan produk ataupon sambung siapkan kerja2 yang terhenti itu.

Tetapi kalau nanti ada cara ada kelapangan, saya berkemungkinan akan mengambil tempahan juga. Tetapi yg pasti adalah sangat limited kuantiti tempahan yg akan saya ambil utk sebulan, kerana utk menjaga kualiti (ye saya jahit sgt lambat) dan juga saya nak kasi ruang utk benda2 lain boleh dilakukan juga, jadi tk boleh ambill banyak sgt orders. Insyallah nnt saya kongsikan gambar2 jahitan saya. Setakat ini saya dh jahit kurung moden, kurung biasa dan 6 panel skirt.

Oh selain itu, just bought a new serger machine. So excited! I can now do the narrow roll hem (normally seen on shawl edges) Yay! Sesiapa nak hantar jahit tepi biasa dan jahit tepi halus di area PJ/Kelana Jaya boleh lah hantar to me ya. Utk jahit tepi halus harga ialah RM1.20 semeter (minimum 4 meter utk setiap kali jahit) dan utk jahit tepi biasa warna hitam atau putih cuma RM0.80 sen semeter Saya tak guna benang polyester yg bulu2 dan senang sangkut tu, saya guna benang nylon yang sama dgn benang jahit baju biasa, lebih tahan lebih cantik.

Ini adalah contoh hasil jahitan mesin jahit tepi Brother 3034D , to those who are interested to buy this, harga ialah RM1300. Memang mahal machine2 ni, tapi berbaloi beli dan cuma peminat2 jahitan jer yg tahu feeling bila ada mesin jahit yg bagus dan boleh jahit cantik. Heee.

My Brother & Singer sewing machine

Well, I did mention in my previous entry here that I would put up some photos of my new sewing machine. Sadly, haven’t got the chance to do so, sorry. My mom had placed the machine inside our old house [made of wood, with zinc roofing], and it’s pretty hot in there during day time, close to temperature of a burning oven. Hence, comfortable to sew during night time only, and the lighting is very poor so end up I didn’t take any photos.

But fret not, the machine now is no longer in our wooden house. We moved it into the brick house [ehe], so that I could use the machine whenever I got the chance to [read as whenever Ichiro is sleeping]. Good news, I also have a couple of photos of the machines.

I had a tough time using the machine in the beginning. Even though the machine is semi-computerised, but for someone like me who had zero knowledge about sewing , it could be a nightmare

Things getting worst, when my mom also having trouble to familiarize herself with the machine. She kept on making noise on how difficult to sew thick and soft fabric with the machine that I newly bought [my mom was a tailor, has been sewing for about 20-30 years].

I love the machine, I love new technology, I love gadget. But sewing machine ain’t a computer or handphone or camera that I can just simply explore. Sewing machine is super sensitive with the needles and moving mechanical parts, you need to really know what you are doing. I chose Brother over many other brand because of…errrrr…I don’t know. Simply attracted to it, mungkin sbb ia canggih, semi-computerised. Yeah I love everything about computer and if I boleh surf internet dgn sewing machine ni sure lagi best. Huhuh.

But ever since I got more access to the machine [thanks to the new placement], am starting to develop my skills using the machine, had done some googling on tips and proper method to sew via the internet. But was bit frustrated since I couldn’t find video tutorial that I want, thus I thought that maybe I could make video tutorial / tips for beginner. I truly understand the agony and suffer that beginner need to go through, so I hope I can share little knowledge that I have about sewing. Expert can watch but please don’t laugh :D Hehe.

In the video I will use my own sewing macine and serger/overlock machine which are Brother Innovis 50 – NV50 and Singer. Thus, please refrain from asking me on how to use other brand ok.

Ichiro yang sibuk nk menjahit jugak

Till then…daaaaa.
