  1. Hi, I am having buyer’s remorse. I purchased a serger but am not using it as much as I thought I would. Or, maybe, I’m just overwhelmed with it. I am mainly a intermediate quilter, and sewer of small projects….mug rugs, zippered pouches, wine totes, table runners, etc. I am too embarrassed to return it via the quilt shop from where I purchased it. However, I am not comfortable selling it via EBay, Craigslist, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Perfect timing for me. My overlocker/serger arrives in a months time and I’m so excited. To make the days go faster I will be printing these off and reading up.
