The Serger & Overlock Master Guide

by Clifford L. Blodget
Publication Date: March 21, 2014
Length: 265 pages (estimated)

Book Description

This is the most comprehensive and up to date book about sergers available covering all skill levels from basic to expert. Although advanced topics are covered the book is easy to navigate and understand. Many people find threading a serger to be difficult, so an entire chapter is dedicated to threading and basic use. The book goes on to cover advanced topics such as troubleshooting, adjustment, maintenance & repair. Covered in-depth are adjusting tension, stitches, decorative stitches, needles, feet, thread and more.

From home sergers to industrial overlock machines and coverstitch machines many of the latest machines are featured with insights on features, capabilities and best use for each model or class of machine. Buying a serger can be frustrating and time consuming because of the overwhelming number of features and types of machines that are available. The buying recommendations will help you cut through the confusion and figure out what features you really need.

Most people have a love/hate relationship with their serger. Everything is great when the machine is working good but most people hate them when frustrating problems arise. This book will empower you to eliminate the hate part of the relationship and put you in control of the machine. In depth sections on adjusting tension and troubleshooting will help you handle most problems (and know which problems not to tackle). Above all sergers are creative tools. If you know and understand the tools you can use them efficiently and effectively.
