‘Today is your lucky day’ is what Cindy from Cindy-rella’s Sewing & Quilting said to me! She gave me SUCH an incredible deal on her serger, I still can’t believe it. Knowing very little about sergers, I had to do a bit of research when I got home. To be honest, I didn’t even know what the proper tension of the stitch should look like. 🙂
I wasn’t really satisfied with the resources online so I decided to buy another Crafsty online course instead of waiting for an in-person course – Beginning Sergering. I really like how she takes you thru a 40 point check of the machine and uses 3 different models. And by the end of the course, you have a handful of resources and you build a binder of samples which you add to your materials. Later when you need the same stitch all the details like stitch length, width and tension dials are recorded.
After a full day with this serger – it became a love hate relationship. By now I intimately know the ins & outs. I also realized some new features on other sergers I would really like, rolled hem capability and differential feed to create a wave effect! Maybe one day. Thanks Cindy! When I save my pennies I will buying my 2nd serger at your store – I am so grateful to you.
Here are a few projects made out of vintage silk ties I pulled together on the serger once I got going with the machine.
