My grandmother gave me her serger earlier this year. Until a week or so ago it has sat looking at me. I decided it was time to take that beginner serger class I bough on craftsy so this holiday weekend I tried, and tried and tried.
The serger had other ideas. I have broken four needles, one is missing in my room somewhere, waiting to be stepped on in the middle of the night. I have threaded and re-threaded the machine and I am now a pro at that step. I just can't get it to work right, at all. It worked for a few sample stitches then stopped. I am sure it is me and not the machine, but I don't have the patience or time right now to figure it out. So I started this project with the serger, note the crappy stitching by the zipper. Then I finished it with my trusty sewing machine.
