Review by Library Journal (1997-08)

Writing this work has given James the opportunity to encapsulate the techniques she has developed during 15 years of teaching. The result is a concise guide to the serger and serger techniques. Major sections of the book include identifying the parts of a serger (with photos of each part), serger accessories, types of threads, threading and testing the threading, learning to regulate tension, and techniques. Throughout, James emphasizes using a knowledge of serger threading, needles, and tension to solve any problems relating to stitch formation. A good purchase for public libraries.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very helpful I just bought a serger, never having used one before. I found this book to be very helpful. It is written in a very simple and understanding way for a first time serger. I enjoyed the book, and am sure it will be helpful for a long time, as a reference. 02/09/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Information on Sergers Even though the book hasn't been recently updated I thought it was a great read. I learned a lot about Sergers and what kind of threads to use and what kind of stitches the serger makes. I would recommend it. Nice pic to. 09/01/2010

Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is a must book and has a lot of illistrations If you are going to use your serger a lot, than this is a must have book. 09/09/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Written in 1997 I decided on getting this book for the good reviews. I'm a total beginner when it comes to using a serger. I haven't read through the entire book yet, but it looks dated. I looked and it was written in 1997. I'm sure the information is still useful, I'm just not sure how helpful it will be. 01/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by great book really explains a lot. But I haven't got to use it too much since I got it last week. 06/28/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by great for everyone i have not used a serger in 25 years, this book reminded me of things i once knew and things i did not. 09/30/2011
