My darling Mom was kind enough to gift me her hand-me-down serger when she got another one not too long ago. I was super excited for the gift, as I’ve been dying for a serger for years! Upon bringing it home, I quickly realized that my skills were a little bit rusty…hopefully these serger hacks help you like they did me!
1.First thing’s first. When using a serger to seam, remember that the left needle is the one that shows through on the thread. Make sure you thread the left needle accordingly!
2.Many sewers recommend keeping a bit of yarn in “blendable” colors like ivory, rose, and grey. If you don’t have an exact shade of thread, many of these thread shades can be blended in successfully.
