Why You Need a Serger from Heirloom Creations

We Carry
by Sara Snuggerud in Serger, Sewing Tips

Sergers truly are one of the wonders of the sewing world,  sometimes referred to as the “microwave” of the sewing room yet most people don’t know why they need one. They will save you time and make your sewing more efficient. But just like a microwave, we also do not use it for everything. We do not cook Thanksgiving dinner in the microwave.

At Heirloom Creations we will teach you when the best times are to use a serger to speed up your sewing project. We will show you how a serger can make your seams look 10 times more professional, and make beautiful rolled hems and edgings. If you are sewing knits or anything stretchy a serger is a must! Best of all it cuts sewing time in half!

Why you need a serger and what they do:

  • A must-have for sewing knits, fleece, sweatshirt fabric or anything stretchy.
  • Overlock and seam in one pass.
  • Beautiful rolled hems on light weight and sheer fabrics in minutes.
  • Create decorative edges using thicker threads not meant for a sewing machine.
  • A serger sews faster than a sewing machine.
  • Insert elastic, beads, wire, cording and pearls along any edge using one of the many available accessory serger feet.
  • Simplify and speed up gathering of lighter weight fabrics.
  • Fashion the same commercial looking seams and hems using optional built-in coverstitch settings.
  • Add zippers to simple bags and home-dec items such as pillows.
  • A serger can even do “quilt-as-you-go” techniques faster than a sewing machine!
  • Pinterest projects go together much quicker on a serger.
  • Keep fabrics from unraveling more than neccessary by finishing raw edges by applying a serged edge.
