Quick Tip for Labeling Your Serger

Apr 13, 2017

Evamarie Gomez and Stephani Miller, Videographer: Jeff Roos

If you own an older serger or a base model whose dials are not labeled, use a Sharpie, or other permanent marker, to help identify what each dial controls. This will save you from having to check your user’s manual each time you need a reminder.

    Hi LuvThreadsMagazine! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and comments on this, and other videos. I'll be sure to relate your "Sharpie to D.C." request to Stephani. ;) Thanks for watching!

    The strawberry moving in the "B"-roll is a nice touch.

    The only suggestion I can make is for you to send Stephanie and her Sharpie to Washington, D.C., one imagines the rest of us would be made clear on who is who (she's a skilled evaluator), then all the spin, and related confusion, would evaporate.

    A fan of yours, and hers!
