At the beginning of the month I got a serger as an early anniversary present from my husband. (I might have been really heavy on the hints!)
Unfortunately it sat in the box unopened until last week when I decided to make a skirt for my daughter.
It was pretty intimidating for me, though I consider myself a confident beginner. I’m going to be honest and say that at one point as I was trying to thread the lower looper over and over again I pretty much had a meltdown. Picture lots of cursing which then went to hysterically laughing but with tears running out of my face in frustration. My mom took one look at me and declared me crazy. My husband likes to remind me of the Albert Einstein quote about how the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again expecting a different result.
Yes, that was me last week.
I think after an hour of doing this (I am also quite persistent.), I realized I should just look up a YouTube video or website tutorial.
And ten minutes later, I was back to sewing.
My favorite resource so far has been this fabulous site.
