There were comments too about having guests demonstrate the serger, how to use it what it can do and how to thread it.  On season 6 Carol Ingram demonstrates how easy serging can be in episode 610 and demonstrates how to make shawl.

  1. Teresa Wasick says:

    I do not use my serger as much as my sewing machine, mostly because i feel better with the sewing machine. I just need to not be so scared of the serger.

  2. Savannagal says:

    I use my sewing machine more than my serger, mostly because I don’t know all of the many ways to use my serger. I know I could be doing so much more with it. I’m watching shows and videos online and hopefully I’ll learn many new techniques. Thanks for the terrific book giveaway.

  3. Lori says:

    A serger is on my ‘someday’ list.

  4. Kelli says:

    I definitely use my sewing machine more than serger.

  5. Pam says:

    I don’t have a serger and I probably don’t know what I’m missing. My machine has some nice stretch and overlock stitch settings so I use those features a lot. And I pin and pin! But I’m sure knits would be easier on a serger! Thanks for the opportunity to win this great book!

  6. Cherie says:

    I have a serger, which I love. However, I use my sewing machine more than it.

  7. rachael says:

    I don’t have a serger, but I am 12 so I use my grandmother’s ALL the time. I love it!!

  8. Iryna B. says:

    I do use my serger more than conventional sewing machine, because I like to sew with knits. I enjoy your shows! Thank you!

  9. Marilyn Ming says:

    I don’t have a serger…wish I did. It is impossible to sew knits without one. I have my mom’s old singer and my singer in the spare room…if I bought one more machine…not sure what my husband would say :>/.

  10. Quilting Tangent says:

    Do not have a serger. Just got a sewing machine. Did everything by hand.

  11. Mary Mac says:

    A serger is on my Christmas list. I have two sewing machines that I use for everything.

  12. Jane C. says:

    At present I have two sergers, the second one is the BabyLock Evolution. The other one is collecting dust. I try to use my sewing machine, a 1955 Elna Supermatic, and serger equally. That should change. Since I have the Rolls-Royce of sergers I need to learn how to use it more. I just bought the Sewing Inspirations book from BabyLock. Now, I examine bought clothes more guessing what combo of stitches were used. The Evolution does it all even threads the loopers. Marvellous!

  13. I use my serger and sewing machine almost equally. I would be lost without my serger, even though I sometimes have a little trouble with it. I have the same issues with my sewing machine so it must be me. :(
