I personally have been waiting for an air jet threading serger FOREVER. As a serger instructor, this is the BIGGEST complaint about sergers. They are hard to thread. Actually they aren’t hard to thread, students just don’t use them enough so they always have to re-learn how to thread their serger every time they sit down to use it.

In today’s “instant” everything, the Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S 400 serger answers the age old question, “Is there an affordable serger that is easy to thread?”

My first flatlock project on the Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S 400 serger.

Here are the top 5 features of the Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S 400 serger that make this the right serger for you.

We are also in the middle of filming all the tutorial videos for for this serger. Watch the videos to see if this serger is right for you or if you have just purchased this serger, jump right in and learn EVERYTHING you can accomplish with this SUPER easy to use serger.

Air Threading

The ultimate feature of this machine is the air swooshing the thread through both the upper and lower loopers of this serger. No more trying to see if the thread is in all the guides or standing on your head to get a looper threaded. Just guide the thread into the hole and send it through the machine with a gentle press of the lever.

On Board Needle Threader

The on board needle threader means it always ready to use. No more hunting for the hand-held needle threader in the accessory case. Simply switch it to the R to thread the right needle and to the L to thread the left needle.

15 Stitches – Including the Picot Stitch

The Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S 400 serger can create 15 different stitch combinations include a picot stitch. This serger can stitch with 2, 3 or 4 threads for a variety of different serger outcomes.

Thread the Serger in Any Order

This serger can be threaded in any order. Gone are the days that a serger has to be threaded in one exact order and no other. On the Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S 400 serger, even if a thread breaks, just re-thread the problem area and get back to serging. This was one part I did not believe myself, but after multiple tries and testing of this feature I can say that is is a correct statement.

Small Foot Print

This serger only takes up a minimal area of the sewing studio. I have never been a fan of giant sergers. The Husqvarna Viking Amber Air S 400 is the size I believe all sergers should be.

With all these wonderful features this serger is worth checking out.

    Can you make a video of the amber air making lined make-up bags? One of your videos shows you making one in a few minutes but my old serger could not handle it. Now I have this beauty and would love to see it make a lined make-up bag with a zipper and which foot we need to use. I believe the other video I’m talking about was with a higher end Viking serger.
