Brother 1634D Serger – Review and FAQs

Brother 1634D review
(Last Updated On: October 5, 2020)

Brother 1634D is one of the best sergers that Brother ever made. In case you used Brother 1034D as your first serger and you learned the wax on and wax off of surging on that thing, this is where you’d pivot to once you think that you deserve an advanced machine.

It is fast, it is efficient, it has as many as 22 built-in features, it is heavy-duty, it is made for professional surging and it is better than 1034D.

Brother 1634D

This thing is advanced and highly recommended for someone who has used other sergers – even if those were not made by Brother and even if those were more of a portable nature and even if they were not as functional as this one.

This has every feature and option that 1034D brings to your surging table – and then some.


Before I dissect this machine, there are a few things that you need to know about how do I review sewing machines, embroidery ones and sergers.

First of all, I do not/cannot use all of them. I use a few of them, for the remainder, I rely on expert opinions and the reviews given to such machines by their verified customers on Amazon.

Likewise, the review is done in three phases – most important features, pros and cons, and the answers to the FAQs related to such machines.

Now without any further ado, here’s the review.



  • 1,300 Stitches/Minute
  • Free Arm
  • 3 or 4 Thread Serging
  • Flexibility


  • Vibrates a Lot
  • Built-Quality Could be Better


Here come all the important FAQs about this product and the answers to those FAQs.

Does this machine do a cover lock stitch?

Unfortunately, you cannot do a cover lock stitch on this one. There are certain other sergers from Brother and other companies that allow a cover lock stitch. For example, Singer’s Professional 5 14T968DC is one of the best machines for this.

Can I make a border around a patch similar to a merrow stitch, while using this serger?

Yes, you can, but it is a little complicated. It depends on how well you understand your machine and what’s the level of your mastery. In case you tighten the lower looper and apply wooly thread to both of them, you can make a border like this.

Does it have a trim edge blade?

Yes, it has. A trim edge blade is just another name for the retractable knife of this machine.


In case you have already got a serger like Brother’s 1034D or some serger similar to that from another company, you should know that there would be a time when you’d like to pivot to a better and more advanced/professional serger. I cannot say that 1634D is much different from 1034D, but it can sure help with the transition from inferior to superior machines.
