The store I work at just started carrying Jukis. We are going to do a test drive event and one of the machines includes a serger. I am trying to come up with a quick and easy small serger project for a "make & take" that will not take up tons of time for this event. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm not sure what you mean by a "make and take", but pillowcases are very quick to make. 3/4 yard of main fabric, 1/4 yard of contrasting fabric (folded in half lengthwise because this is going to be the cuff of the pillowcase and 2-3" of a really contrasting fabric, aka "zinger" strip. Stitch the zinger onto the folded 1/4 yard, sew these onto the main fabric, fold the pillowcase in half, sew two sides (bottom and one side) and you're done in about 10 minutes, which includes the cutting. Here are the directions via YouTube: click here
You can also fold the pieces (cuff and zinger) wrong sides together and serge them to one long edge of the main fabric (this is much quicker than the rollup/hot dog/sausage method) then sew the bottom of the case and one side

How about a mini pillowcase and call it a glasses case?

Coasters or bookmarks with serged edges, or serge-edged napkins.
