Got it covered

Sometimes a good thing passes your way without you even expecting it. So be open and be ready to say, "Yes" without worrying or over analyzing. That's my philosophical way of introducing the newest member of my sewing family. I'm still a little giddy over having her to work with.

I have had a serger for nearly 20 years and still can't imagine sewing without one. Amazing as that serger is, well these days, sergers can do more. The most impressive? In one word. Cover stitch. So, I'm in love with my new baby and her abilities. I'm keeping my tried and trusty serger and now with my new "does more" serger - I know there's nothing I can't tackle.
Best part? Although she's secondhand, she's like new, and she's actually paying for herself. I've been doing piecework sewing that uses the cover stitch for 99% of the garment. I'm able to save time and make money. Did I mention how fun she is to work with? Not half as scary as she looks.

  1. Wow, you’ve been posting a lot lately!
    Love the new blogheader picture and all those vintage goodies!

    I’ve never worked with a serger. Do you use it for making clothes?
