Have you bought a serger, but haven't yet learned how to use it? Do you own one, but know that it could do more if you only knew how? This is the book for everyone who owns or has considered buying the versatile and efficient serger. With valuable technical information, and more than 130 photos to clarify every step, this new volume in the Sewing Companion Library will guide you through everything you need to know to get the most out of your machine, including how to thread your serger right every time; find the machine settings, needles and thread that suit your fabric; make fancy edges and hems that only a serger can do, choose and use the notions that work best; turn inside and outside corners perfectly; work with sheer fabrics and lace; make a fancy braid or a custom ribbon to match your garment; sew easy bias tubing, and much more.
Once limited to the commercial sewing industry, sergers now are popular with home-sewers who can stitch, trim and finish seams in one step. Years of personal experience qualifies professional designer Kitty Benton to introduce sewers to a new world of sewing satisfaction with her step-by-step, fully illustrated guide that takes the mystery out of serging. 182 color photos.
