Q: I already have a sewing machine. How does learning to serger help me?

A: Although both a serger and a sewing machine are used for sewing, they sew them differently.

Each machine works best for different aspects of the sewing process.

Just as a kitchen has a stove and an oven, every sewing room should have a sewing machine and a serger.

A serger can be used for more than just seam finishing.

It also allows you to create many specialty effects that aren't possible with your sewing machine.

Q: I'm a seamstress that is familiar with sewing machines, but I've been hesitant to jump into the world of serger. Does a serger make that much of a difference?

A: Absolutely. The next time you go to your favorite clothing store, check out their frills, chances are they were made with a serger.

And if mindless factories can manufacture clothes people like to buy at stores, imagine what YOU could make with a serger and the right techniques

Everyday that you delay is another day you miss out on an instant upgrade to your favorite clothes, decor and more.
