Coverstitch & Stonemountain

I like to wait until I have 2 or 3 items requiring coverstitch before I switch over on my Elnal 744. When I do, it's WHAM,BAM,THANK YOU, MA'AM or serger, as the case may be, and all of a sudden, I have 2 or 3 new articles of clothing. I finished Kwik Sew 3222, and I'm wearing it today. I'll review it soon, but I decided I need to wear the item before reviewing it. What seems so wonderful when I first put on a new garment often pales after wearing it for several hours. I finished Kwik Sew 2565 out of the rayon-lycra knit. It's pretty heavy. The fabric is so soft that, even tho it has a horizontal stripe, I couldn't resist it.

I even worked on Kwik Sew 2529 which has been languishing in the to-do pile since May.

I started cutting out another sweatshirt for DH. Goosey threw-up in her bed around 9 pm last night. It's quite an adrenalin rush, so I couldn't go to sleep after that. I can't run the machinery if I expect Boobla and Goosey to sleep.

I couldn't work on the t-shirt for the Pattern Review plus sized November sew along (PRPSNSA?) because I did a test serge, and the off-white thread is just too visible. I don't really have anything matching, so it's off to Joann's I go.

Tonight is Fashion Fabric Extravaganza with Sandra Betzina! at Stonemountain & Daughter in Berkeley. I can't wait. I get to see Jennifer, again, and meet Tamtay. Fun! Fun!

I'm takig that style class with Heather Klauss. I'd put in a link and check my spelling, but her site isn't working for me right now. I'm eagerly awaiting my catalogs which don't seem to be coming. Where are my catalogs?

What kind of serger do you have? What do you like about it?
