SUMMARY- I had a miserable experience working with a Serger for the first time. It was an early model my grandmother had bought and given to me when she upgraded to a nicer one. I read the manual, threaded her up - and never finished the shirt I was making. The one thing I took away from that experience is that you cannot make a mistake when sewing on a serger. A seam ripper and do overs are not compatible with the Serger modus operandi. I would imagine this book was in my mother's collection because she was given the second serger my grandmother bought for an even better model, and mom had as much luck with her hand-me-down as I did.
