Then she takes you from decorative serging basics onto such innovative techniques as: serger points wavy lattice serger seminole patchwork rolled hem pintucks a variety of trims that you can make on your serger and much more!

Included are: -lots of detailed illustrations and photos to help you understand the information and techniques. -a color gallery of photos to stimulate your imagination! -novelty thread library-an informative reference on many kinds of decorative threads, including a valuable chart on where they are most easily used. -a list of helpful accessories -easy to read charts for serger set-up

Serging has been traditionally used for utilitarian purposes such as preventing raveling and for stretch seams. DecoSerging revolutionizes your use of the serger with dozens of decorative techniques.

Though features and stitch types vary from one brand of serger to another, this book was researched and written to work with all serger types.
