Discover the Serger in April

Emily Achondo

If you haven’t already discovered what you can do with a Serger, then now is definitely the perfect time to explore the ease and functionality of this sewing machine companion because April is National Serger Month!

According to, National Serger Month was established in 2013, “in an effort to educate sewing enthusiasts and celebrate all things sergers.”

Throughout the month Meissner Sewing & Vacuum Centers will be offering several opportunities to get educated on sergers and to celebrate.

So, let’s get started.

Why Use a Serger?

A serger can be a great companion to any sewing machine.

Sewing machines and sergers can both achieve beautiful, decorative stitches, but sergers can be used to simplify some techniques while also creating neater results, according to Specifically, the site explains, sergers will finish edges without stretching the fabric while sewing twice as fast as many sewing machines. Sewing machines, however, can easily insert buttonholes, buttons and zippers.


Celebrate with Meissner Sewing

You’re officially invited to attend our Baby Lock Serge-A-Thon event taking place in Sacramento and Santa Rosa on April 29, 2017.

The Serge-A-Thon is a one-day event, where participants will have the opportunity to partake in American Patchwork and Quilting’s Million Pillowcase Challenge, where you will be tasked with serging together a pillowcase for donation to a local charity.

Participants of the Serge-A-Thon will also have the opportunity to use and try a Baby Lock Serger and can enter a national drawing for the chance to win one of three Baby Lock Ovation sergers.
