Congratulations on your new serger.  Will you get classes with your serger?  You can also try the serging videos from Palmer/Pletsch.  Good basic techniques and some creative serging techniques too, but it's not specific to any serger brand.

That's great Leslie.  Was it a total surprise, or did you drop hints and hope for the best?  Very nice serger, Santa did well!

I mentioned to my mother a couple of months ago that I'd like for her serger to come live with me.  Next thing I know.....

The machine comes with a couple of guide classes, but they don't start until late January. Thankfully,  I also received a nice little Palmer/Pletsch book, Sewing With Sergers: The Complete Handbook for Overlock Sewing, so I've dug into that and am ready to start ruining some fabric. ;)

Thanks for sharing in my excitement, friends!

:0 Wow Leslie!  Wish Santa sent me such a nice gift!  Actually my Santa wanted too, but I told him we'd have too many bills coming up so now wouldn't be a good time to make such a purchase...  SIgh... I should've said OKAY! :D

Have fun with your new serger!

Leslie, that's exactly what Santa brought me last year.  Good choice, Santa!

My favorite surprise Christmas present from my husband was a 234 Bernina serger about 18 years ago, I've since moved up to one with differential feed, but Oh, what a wonderful surprise that was!!!! :winkgrin:     Have fun! Hey I was living in Austin at the time, I'll bet you go to the same Bernina dealer.
