Happy Pub Day!

On sale now!

If you’re like me, beginning a new craft better come with an entire instruction manual, or you’re going to end up with a table full of science experiments and a swear jar filled to the brim. If learning how to use a serger, or overlock machine, has been on your agenda but seems too daunting, I’ve got just the thing for you. The Serger’s Technique Bible by Julia Hincks goes on sale today!

When it comes to achieving professional-quality edging, hemming, seaming, and decorative stitching, you can’t beat a serger. A serger allows you to quickly sew, trim, and finish seams all in one go! This book contains all you need to get the most out of your machine.

Starting with the basics, the anatomy of a serger and its different functions are clearly explained, followed by a section that covers each of the core techniques, from basic serging to fancy stitching like pintucks and picot edging, all shown in detailed step-by-step photographs so you can achieve professional results. A useful overview of available feet and accessories used to add piping, elastic, or beading to your project is provided, along with tips for how to cut down on construction time by using your machine to quickly attach collars, alter garments, work with lace, and more. A buyer’s guide that takes you through all the questions to ask when buying your first serger, and the practical information included for how to maintain and troubleshoot your machine makes this a reference book all machine sewers will return to again and again for easy-to-follow, helpful advice.

Convinced? I know I am!
