Singer 14CG754 Review

Singer 14CG754 Review In Detail

Singer 14CG754 will suit budget users more. It is a quality serger. It has 2/3/4 thread configuration as well. However it is slightly on the louder side.

Editor rating


Singer 14CG754 is a good, affordable serger with 2-3-4 thread capability. You can choose 2 or 3 or 4 thread stitch depending on your project. This machine seems to have a very good motor inside, it is capable of sewing at a speed of 1300 stitches/minute. It comes with 6 different stitch types including 4 built-in rolled hems. You can do 2-thread wrapped edge overlock, 2-thread standard rolled hem, 3-thread wrapped edge overlock, 3-thread flatlock, 3-thread overlock stitch and 4-thread stretch mock safety stitch on this machine. The color coded threading system saves time (not a big surprise as it is pretty much standard in all sergers nowadays).

One good feature of Singer 14CG754 is the differential feed control which controls how much fabric is fed through the machine. You can set it to gather fabric or stretch fabric mode depending on your requirements. You can easily sew cuffs and sleeves with the optional free arm. For free arm sewing, you just need to remove the cloth plate. You can easily adjust the tension to make consistent stitches.

You can easily set Singer 14CG754 to rolled hem sewing mode by using the lever. The machine weighs around 17 lbs which is pretty much the average weight of an entry-level serger. It has a carry handle to make it portable. Another good feature of this serger is the moveable upper knife. Basically what this does is that, it prevents fabric trimming while sewing. Stitch length can be adjusted by turning the knob. There is an extra high presser foot lifter for working with multiple layers of fabrics.

Ease of Use

Singer 14CG754 comes threaded in the box. It is not that difficult to thread the machine either. The machine is slightly on the noisy side. This machine seems to be a victim of false reviews done by people who really doesn't understand how it works. We were really surprised with the negative reviews. The stitches come out smooth and consistent, giving a professional finish to your projects. It doesn't require much maintenance when compared to other expensive sergers.

Some had trouble with threading, it is more of an operator error than a machine error. You will find it much easier, if you read, understand the instructions and thread. The knife cutter is awesome. It cuts thread nice and clean. The differential feed seems to work perfect. Free arm is something that you don't see on all sergers, especially on an entry level serger like this.

Drawbacks

Singer 14CG754 is a slightly loud machine but it is in no way unbearable.

Spool holder could be made of better plastic. It looks slightly flimsy.

Pros

•    High quality stitches
•    Highly efficient differential feed system
•    Free arm sewing
•    Extra-high presser foot lifter
•    Moveable upper knife
•    Affordable

Cons

•    Slightly noisy

Review Verdict

The capabilities of Singer 14CG754 is highly underestimated. This serger deserves some appreciation. It sews smoothly and stitches come out perfect. We still don't understand why this machine doesn't have a higher rating.
