What are you most proud of? This reference book has come in handy already! I did a Christmas project that required a 3 thread narrow seam and I knew exactly what to do. In the past, I wouldn't make such a project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Amy is a delightful teacher. Go through her serger class and get overlocking!

This makes me SO HAPPY to see, Pamelyn! I honestly use my serger stitch book all the time, and I love to see that students really do make and fill them out. It's so handy to have nearby so that you don't have to waste precious sewing time figuring out stitch tensions. Yay for you! :)

Exactly! No more saying, "It took more time trying to figure out how to set my machine up than it did to do the serging." I can't wait to add the embellished stitch sample pages in it!

Where can we purchase the book?

When you sign up for Beginner Serging, the pages are in the course materials and Amy shows you how to fill out the pages in some of the classes. I had the empty white binder at home already so I used it for my pages of stitch samples. Very useful reference book!

Making American Girl Doll Clothes-pattern call for bias tape around the neck and arm holes. Not wild about doing it on sheer fabric. I don't like to use bias tape!

Serge a beautiful rolled hem instead!

Will I have to print from my computer? Or am I getting something in the msil?

You print the pages from the materials provided in the class and make the book yourself.
