What year was the white 208 serger overlock machine manufactured?
A serger is a sewing machine that sews and cuts the fabric at the same time. This makes for a neater seam. It is used a lot in professional sewing. Check out the inside seam o…n most store bought clothes and you will see that there is no extra fabric on the seam. A serger machine is used to trim the edge of a fabric, and then enclose the seam allowance or edge of the fabric inside a thread casing, all in one step. This "finishes" the edge, preventing a woven fabric from fraying. There are various options that each brand of serger offers, including, but not limited to:rolled hemgathering for ruffleschain stitchcover stitch
I am going to offer my somewhat educated opinion on this ... for my "credentials" I will just say that I have owned both a baby lock serger and a brother serger and I work in …the "sewing industry" on a national level so I have used a lot of different types of machines and can compare them for similarities and differences by using them. My opinion is that the two are not "related". For one thing the two sergers have never struck me as similar when using them. I never once thought that they might be made by the same manufacturer whereas I do think that about my Brother serger and another high end serger that has a totally different name on it. I suspect that this is the kind of information that is available to the public if they choose to dig a little bit. I don't really care about it ... if the machine is a nice machine then it's a nice machine! It can be nice to know that your $200 machine is made by a company that makes $1000 machines as well ... but it could also lead you to believe that you have the inferior machine. I don't think that inexpensive necessarily means inferior. I have been very happy with my Brother machines, both sergers and sewing machines. A skilled seamstress can do just as beautiful work with an old straight stitch Singer as she can on a 2007 top o'the line machine! That too is my educated opinion! Hope it helps. ======== I would like to add that while Brother and BabyLock sergers don't seem to match up, their sewing machines are IDENTICAL! It's kind of like Riccar and Simplicty with their vacuums. Some of their models match up piece by piece and others are very similar but look completely different.
An overlocker is a finishing machine used for seams and hems on a garment while a sewing machine is basically used to sew pieces of garmets together.

There are number of ways to buy a serger: You can buy sergers at a number of retail outlets - most hobby and sewing stores (Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, Hancock Fabrics, etc.) have …the inexpensive models for sale.Sewing machine/vacuum boutiques are great places, because they have excellent customer service and a "mom and pop" store feel.You can also go to your desired serger brand's website, and see where in your area there is a dealer. The best serger brand is Brother, but you can also check Janome and Viking.You can also check for used models on ebay or Craigslist as well. Some people use their sergers for a month and get tired of of sewing.
My mother-in-law bought hers in June 1975 - brand new. But it could have been manufactured the year before, of course.

It was during the 1980's I am certain. I got my Master's degree in fashion design. The only sergers that were available at that time for the home-sew market was a homely littl…e serger made by Babylock. People that had them liked them. None of my fellow grads students had one, but we were all interested. The first serger that I bought was a White 534 in 1987. (I still have the receipt and I still have the serger. It works great!) I remember that it had been out a little while before that. I can't remember how long. It was listed as the best serger on the market in consumer reports for something like 15-20 years. The 534 was the first easy to thread serger for the home market and was definitely that top serger of its time. Mine will not stop. It is amazing!
No. As you would do the quilting stitches, the serger would be cutting your quilt into pieces. You can, however, stitch together straight edges on quilt pieces.
Yes, you still need a sewing machine, as the overlock machine is designed simply to finish the edges of the fabric. Overlock machines do not go backwards, turn, zigzag, or any…thing stitch functions that you may need (depending on what you are sewing) You do not absolutely need a sewing machine if it's a quick and easy project (such as a repair, or a pillow), but for everyday use, you need both.
A Baby Lock Serger is a sewing machine sometimes known as an "overlocker". These machines actually trim the edge of the fabric as they stitch giving a professional finish.
One can purchase an overlock sewing machine from a number of physical and online sources. Companies like Amazon and eBay sell these types of products for example.
