Serger Tips & Cheat Sheets

I love my serger. I use it all the time. It does get a little overwhelming trying to remember all of the settings for different stitches and different fabrics. To make things a little easier, I have rounded up some tips and cheat sheets for you to keep handy.

1. This Serger 101 from Sweet Verbena has a great breakdown of basic stitches and settings.


2. Create Kids Couture has a handy, blank table for you to fill in with your preferred settings.
