Whether you're already using a serger or just thinking about buying one, you'll get plenty of use from this most complete book ever published on the subject. See how to recognize when you need a serger stitch instead of a sewing machine technique for finishing edges, making garments, or decorative work. Get clearly spelled out techniques for the times when a serger works better than a sewing machine for long, straight seams, fabrics that stretch, pill, or ravel, or are otherwise hard to control. Fully illustrated instructions show how to make buttonholes, and do lacemaking, quilting, and applique, all in the unique "serger mode".

Writing this work has given James the opportunity to encapsulate the techniques she has developed during 15 years of teaching. The result is a concise guide to the serger and serger techniques. Major sections of the book include identifying the parts of a serger (with photos of each part), serger accessories, types of threads, threading and testing the threading, learning to regulate tension, and techniques. Throughout, James emphasizes using a knowledge of serger threading, needles, and tension to solve any problems relating to stitch formation. A good purchase for public libraries.
