SERGER BASICS AND PROJECTS

If you own a serger or overlock machine, we have serger videos to help you learn how to use it.  

Once you are familiar with the machine basics, you can learn hemming techniques such as the blind hem, rolled hem, and lettuce hem. The serger is an ideal tool for quickly and neatly finishing projects' raw edges. 

Once you've improved your serging skills, you can apply them by making items using our free serging project tutorials.
