  1. Oh boy! Do I need this series! Can't wait for the next installment! Thanks!

  2. havfaith S. says:

    Oh my, thank you for this series.

  3. THANK GOODNESS! I have been looking for serging classes in my area w/no success. Since I sewed my entire Fall/Winter wardrobe in knits I thought I'd learn to serge them all since it looks like I'm addicted to these wonderful knits and continue through Spring and Summer as well. The items that I purchase off-the-rack are done entireley w/sergers but I have no clue how to use one so I am VERY grateful for you sharing and for YT coz I would never have been able to make my creative dreams come true! TFS! (HUUGS) and much continued success to you. ^ _ ^

  12. Thank you!! This is so needed. Now a days not many of us have moms or grandmothers who can teach us. This helps so much. I make cloth pads and will branch out to diapers as we may have an additional little one coming into our family. This helps us so much!! What model number is yours?

  13. I bought your machine today. So this tutorials are great. I am making cloth pads. So I now need to find a pattern that compatible. Cloth pads and such are gaining popularity and are a growing business. Maybe you can make a serger pattern video! Many would love it.

  15. Amy Snawder says:

    Thank you for this series. I will be getting my grandmother's ProFinish in a couple weeks. (She is 93 and an amazing seamstress, but it's getting hard for her to sew now.) This series will help me a lot, especially since it's the same machine.
