April is National Serger Month! What a perfect opportunity to get to know your serger a little better, remember why you love it so, and create something awesome with it!
Sergers are a valuable tool when sewing knits and clothing. When sewing with woven fabrics, a serger gives the seams a neat, professional finish and helps prevent fraying, which, in turn, helps your clothing last a LOT longer! When sewing with knits, a serged seam provides enough stretch to prevent seams from popping.
