Learn how to use your serger to its full potential!
The serger is the most versatile tool a sewist can use, capable of hemming, seaming, decorative finishes and more. Author Gail Yellen is here to demystify the serger and help you get the most out of your machine! By familiarizing yourself with the various components and how they affect the stitch, you’ll tackle new stitches and techniques with a new enthusiasm.
Thread blending with The Thread Palette is a beautiful way to incorporate multiple colors and textures of threads in decorative serger stitching. Unlike variegated thread (left), thread blending gives a subtle continuous blending of colors (right) rather than color blocking.

Whether you’re a new serger owner or have been using one for years, you’ll learn some very cool techniques.
