Let’s Celebrate National Serger Month 2017
April 7, 2017 in News
Welcome back sewing friends! April is National Serger Month to kick off this 'serge'tastic month I wanted to share a few great resources for serging knowledge, fun, and 'sew' much more.
Over at nationalsergermonth.org you can find many resources to learn more about serging. Be sure check out the Projects page for lots of creative inspiration from apparel to quilting to home decor and more. My favorite is the Sweet Little Swimsuit that Totally Stitchin' blogger, Stephanie, made. With all the fun serger projects available, you're sure to find one to add to your sewing "To Do" list. And don't miss the accessories page which is a great place to learn about accessory feet and attachments that will help you achieve different serging techniques with ease. Plus the Videos and Serger 101 pages are a great resource to see sergers in action and to learn more about the basics of serging.
During National Serger Month, you can find events and classes to join all around the United States. If your local retailer isn't listed, be sure to give them a call. They would love to hear from you. And this year, join Baby Lock retailers around the United States on April 29th for the Serge-A-Thon to sew for charity.
