I’m sure you know by now that it’s National Serger Month and we’re celebrating the wonders of the serger with projects, videos, and SAVINGS all month! But, you might be wondering — What’s the big deal about a serger?
According to www.nationalsergermonth.org, National Serger Month was established in 2013, “in an effort to educate sewing enthusiasts and celebrate all things sergers.” Sergers are unique in their own way, here is why.
Why you NEED a Serger
A serger can be a great companion to any sewing machine.
Sewing machines and sergers can both achieve beautiful, decorative stitches, but sergers can be used to simplify some techniques while also creating neater results, according to www.nationalsergermonth.org. Specifically, the site explains, sergers will finish edges without stretching the fabric while sewing twice as fast as many sewing machines. As an added bonus, your serger cut and finish off your seam allowances as you sew — saving you even more time! Sewing machines, however, can easily insert buttonholes, buttons and zippers.
