Simple clothes, and repairing old towels and washcloths that have started to fray at the edges.

Not a dang thing!!:D

My serger, hidden in the attic, is the most expensive paperweight I've ever bought.:p

Summer capris and cotton skirts, placemats and napkins, finish edge for hemming pants before machine stitching, doll clothes, repairing tears in ready-mades. I don't use it for quilting; too much thread for my taste. I love my serger--it's 14 years old, mechanical rather than computerized and comes with cards that tell you how to set up for each stitch, with tension, stitch length and all. It is a moderately priced, does 2-3-4 threads, rolled edge, differential feed. No cover stitch or wave. It runs very smoothly. It's an Elna 634; I don't think they make them anymore, But I have seen ones similar at the dealer.

I have men in my family and I'm forever cutting pants shorter or Making shorts from pants that are too short to be long LOL. I have to hem my pants also. They are always too long. Great grandkids clothes always need to be fixed.
