From the Publisher:
In today's sewing world, serger and overlock are the synonymous words used to describe a compact machine that quickly trims, seams, and overcasts the edge of a piece of fabric in one operation. According to Chris James, sewing teacher and author of The Complete Serger Handbook, the serger is "the microwave or CD player of the sewing world. You really don't know if you need one, but once you have it, you don't know how you ever lived without it". Written for both the novice just taking the serger out of the box and the experienced user who needs a refresher on certain techniques, this comprehensive reference focuses on every aspect of serging, from the parts of the machine to creative design ideas. Evaluate the various types of thread on the market and find out what stitches and fabrics can be used. Understand serger tension theory and master various techniques. Learn to recognize when a serger can -- or should -- be used in place of a standard sewing machine. Troubleshooting and maintenance tips are also included to help ensure a long life for the machine. Intended as an additional instruction book and a serging friend, this handy guide will help users discover just how fast and fun a serger can be.
“There’s nothing better than an author who’s made all the mistakes herself, has taught hundreds of others, and writes with humor. Chris James fills the bill. This beautiful book talks about knits, rolled hems, and flatlocking. At the end is a trouble-shooting guide....The close-up color photos make her text even more understandable....highly recommended.”—The Creative Machine. “The most comprehensive reference on serging to date.”—Craft & Needlework Age.
