Video: Quick Tip for Labeling Your Serger

Video Length: 1:47
Produced by: 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.

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!
