Is the Singer 14T968DC serger​ recommended for beginning sewers?

Overall, there are elements which make the Singer 14T968DC suitable for beginning sewers as well as the more advanced. Take it slowly and learn the feature this machine has to offer and you will find this a valuable asset. 

Color coded threading, the range of stitches and automatic tension adjustment are all positive features.

It’s cover stitch feature makes it different among serger sewing machines.

Thick fabrics are not a problem with the extra-high presser foot lift that gives the extra clearance.

A tip to save you the frustration I went through: the small lever inside the looper cover, attached to a looper, that must be switched to change from other stitching to cover stitching
