MAKING SERGER LACE WITH YOUR ELNA SERGER

I received something in the mail from Betty Chalker of Tuscaloosa, Alabama quite some time back. Thank you, Betty. She sent me a very friendly letter with a couple of pics of SERGER LACE. It was quite interesting to receive this as I had not long before attended a seminar where the instructor had briefly mentioned making lace with your serger. I filed Betty’s letter in my BLOG folder and am now, finally, getting to share it with you.

This Betty's Guest towel edged with pretty serger lace as well as Guest embroidered onto the fabric which looks like linen.

All you need is a 4 thread serger and a little time to “play”!
