Synopses & Reviews
No More Fear of Serging
Are you a serger 'fraidy-cat? Is your brand-new serger still in its box because you can't figure out how to thread it? Do you panic when the threads loop crazily because you don't understand how the machine works?
Even if you're a sewing whiz, you may feel uncomfortable with the serger. After all, it's an entirely different piece of equipment from your sewing machine.
Yet you know it's worth mastering. The serger has made sewing more fun than ever for hundreds of thousands of home sewers.
Tammy Young and Lori Bottom, two of America's top serger authorities, understand your fears and your needs. In ABCs of Serging, they have sorted out the most important facts, applied them to every serger brand and model, and organized them in t a logical, step-by-step format so that anyone can work through the book and learn to use the machine to its full potential.
In addition, a National Serger Teachers Advisory Board of seven experts has added special tips to help you progress.
Once you've mastered the basics, much more awaits. You'll be ready for the exciting world of serging: fast garment construction, advanced decorative techniques, home decorating projects, serger quilting, and heirloom serging. Tammy Young has co-authored seven other serging books to entice you.
Learn your ABCs and you'll soon expand your entire serger vocabulary.
If you have the "urge to serge, " then this book was written for you. You'll get purchasing tips, set-up, and adjustments to produce all types of professional looking serging. This is the most complete serging book ever written.
