Serger Serging

I think you all know that I love my serger. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite figured out how to use it, or it might be better to say I’m not really sure when it use it instead of my sewing machine. I have made a few projects with it, like last year’s Christmas napkins (which, apparently, I never took pictures of), and some fabulous paperless paper towels that we’ve been using for over a month (more details about them soon).

Anyway, after the terrible Creativ Festival serger class last fall, I’ve been really wanting to take another, better serger class. And guess what! Craftsy just released a serger class! (Click on the link to help me earn points towards a free class. No need to sign up for anything, I promise.)

I haven’t done too much with the class yet, other than purchase some supplies (gosh, FabricLand does not have a great supply of serger thread), print out some handouts, and watch the intro videos. But check out these stitch samples:

Okay, they don’t look like much, but they are letting me get to know my machine much better. And once I get myself an orange zipper, well, just you wait!

Near perfect 4-thread overlock stitch. Yay!

    Did you say an orange zipper? Orange isn’t your colour! 🙂

    The serging class looks great! Glad you’re enjoying the class. I clicked on the link – can’t tell if it helped you or not. Hope it did!
