Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Writing this work has given James the opportunity to encapsulate the techniques she has developed during 15 years of teaching. The result is a concise guide to the serger and serger techniques. Major sections of the book include identifying the parts of a serger (with photos of each part), serger accessories, types of threads, threading and testing the threading, learning to regulate tension, and techniques. Throughout, James emphasizes using a knowledge of serger threading, needles, and tension to solve any problems relating to stitch formation. A good purchase for public libraries.
