Hi. I'm not sure I've even made it to the right group, so please feel
free to redirect me.
I got a serger in November, and I also bought a couple of books that
seem to cover the basics. Except one. Or, maybe the instructions are
there but I'm too dense to translate them. My problem is that I cannot
for the life of me figure out how to turn an outside corner while doing
a narrow rolled hem! I've tried following the general instructions for
an outside corner, but I still wind up with a small length of unrolled
(and very wadded!) non-hem as soon as I go around the corner. Judging
from the way sergers are touted as being the perfect way to hem items
like napkins, scarves, and tablecloths, this surely has to be an easy
thing to do, for everybody but me.
I know I have to be missing something very simple and obvious. Could
someone please give me instructions, provide a link, or even recommend
a book on serging techniques that I can add to my small library?
