I love my serger. I wouldn’t get nearly as much sewing done if it weren’t for this little workhorse. Honestly, for the last year or so my sewing machine has been an “accessory” for my serger, not the other way around! I’ve collected links to some of my favorite serger projects and tutorials. Serge on!
