Hi, I know that I came across posts on favorite serger books, but now I can't seem to find anything.  If some of you could list your favorite and best serger books I would really appreciate it.  I'm kinda new at serging and would like to get some good books.
Thank you
Janet

Singer reference books has a good one. You may want to check the book review section.

Jannie, my favorite is "Serger Secrets".  It is not so much a "learn to serge" book, but more like taking serging to the next level.  This book has great pictures explaining each step. You will be amazed at all the things you can do with your serger!

Serger Secrets is my favorite book on serging, too!  Some books contain garments that scream "home made," but not this one.  The Ultimate Serger Answer Guide is the book I've used the most.  While other serger books have some troubleshooting information, this book has great photos and illustrations so that you can figure out what needs to be adjusted and how serger parts are supposed to work.  As Deepika mentioned in her review, this book should be packaged with every serger.

I have some older books without all the pictures  :tounge: that are good but my new books are: Serger Secrets which has been mentioned, The Ultimate Serger Answer Guide, The Complete Serger Handbook and Serger Shortcuts. These are all informative and have lovely colored pics. I am like a kid when it comes to the picture books. That might come from my failing eyes.

Hi Jannie,
    I have all but one of the books suggested and I use them all.  I have a couple others, but not nearly as useful as those suggested.  The "Ultimate Serger Guide" I have found very useful for troubleshooting.  I've been sewing only 3 yrs, but I already have a small library of sewing, serging & embroidery books.  I love & need reference books & magazines.  They are very useful for troubleshooting & inspiration.

I just bought a serger a short time ago too.   I picked up a book called "sewing with sergers".    Granted, it is kind of old, 1985, but - for the basics, I felt that this was a pretty darn good book.    It also has a section on decorative sergering, lingerie and lace, etc.

It's a good basics book.

Good luck with your serger. ;)
