Show Off Saturday… my new Juki MO-1000 Serger!


The floor in my new sewing studio is still not done. As I tried to be patient this week and sew in my little back-bedroom makeshift studio, I consoled myself by doing what anyone would do… I bought a new serger! I picked the Juki MO-1000 from

A few years ago I promised myself that I wouldn’t get another serger until I could have one with air threading, and here she is! A sister to my straight stitch Juki TL-2010Q, lol. I first saw this serger at Quilt Market last year.

Now, cutting serger threads is fun, not despair!

The new looper threads just run through the tension disks and down into these little holes. When I push the button, an burst of air shoots them out in the right place.

There is a little more to it than that, but it’s super easy. I watched the Crafty Gemini’s video about it once and had it down. 🙂


 To be fair, I have only had the machine a couple days and had time to play with her a few times. I did some mending (sewed up a couple split seams) and sewed through a bunch of scrap fabric. I LOVE how smooth sounding she is and the huge catcher bin.

I’ll write a real review for you in a couple weeks when I have had the chance to put her to good use! In the meantime you can read more about the Juki MO-1000 on the AllBrands website.

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

  1. You are going to love your new Juki serger. Had mine for about a year and it is so easy to use and very reliable. Good choice!

    I am embarrassed to say that I bought my serger a year ago and have never used it . (Fear!) My mother had just died and that must have spurred "something" in my sowjo. I’m looking for a serger guide. Any suggestions?

    1. When I first started using a serger I found a little book at my library called Sewing With Sergers. I loved it so much that I bought my own copy, lol. It has cute old fashioned illustrations and really awesome information. And it’s a great size to keep close for reference. Good luck!

  3. Bought this serger three yes ago LOVE it!!! Super easy to use and change threads. Easy to adjust. Enjoy the new baby she will bring you years of fun sewing. My last juki server now my travel machine thirty yes old and still runs like a champ.

  4. I have the Juki MO-51e. Although it’s manually threaded, I figured out a trick to make that lower looper threading a BREEZE. I’ll cut and re-thread my machine on a whim anytime. I really do love the Juki – my sewing machine is a Juki Exceed.

    1. I look at the Exceeds at every market, and think my studio needs one, lol! Thanks for sharing about your serger – I’m not surprised you love it. xoxo

  5. I love Juki! I have three machines, including the older 735 serger. Unfortunately it does not have air threading, but still pretty easy to use. Great Juki service too.
