Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Hi, I shop at Allbrands.com which has just about anything you want in the sewing machine feet, etc. They are much cheaper than the dealers for the different brands of machines. I have a Bernina and I bought a walking foot from them a lot cheaper than the Bernina store had it for.Originally Posted by joivey
I have a nice book: "Simply Serge Any Fabric, by: Naomi Baker and Tammy Young, that I bought many years ago. You may be able to find it on Amozon.com. The publisher is: Chilton Book Company - Creative Machine Arts is the logo on the back of the book. This book has 164 pages of patterns and ideas about serging. Copyright date 1990
Good Luck~ Mary
I'm making a fleece blazer with my serger. Could use my D1 but the results are so much better serging fleece. Practicing different settings with fabrics really helped me gain confidence. I saw program on PBS where they used 3 threads to serge a chain and then used the chain as a gathering cord. Just wrapped the serged chain around an empty thread spool until it was needed. I liked the idea a lot because I can never seem to find a thin cord when I'm gathering fabric.
I don't know about the one from Babylock, but I have a book that sounds like what you want from Pfaff. I got it when I bought my serger. It is a workbook type in a large binder. It describes each of the different finishes, how to set your serger to do them and then has a place for you to put your samples as you try each method. I refer to it whenever I need to reset my serger.
Be careful if you decide not to use your knife blade to serge an edge. I did this and then could not figure out why my serger would not stitch. My repair man told me I had broken one of the loopers doing that. The fabric got too close and with no blade to cut it, snapped the looper. Looking at it I couldn't see it was broken. It cost $50 for the new looper and a $75 repair bill. It was an expensive lesson.
