okay...i wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this..but it was the only sewing things i could find.

okay...my mom bought me a serger last year for christmas because i wanted one. well...i didnt even open it till about a month ago when i demanded that my mom let me take her sewing machine to college with me because i was dying without one. and she said take the serger you still haven't opened. haha.

so...i have this serger. and i have no idea how to use it! i figured out how to work it or whatever...but i mean...can i use it just as i would use a sewing machine? from the little booklet, i don't think it makes just the straight stitches that look like this ---------. that's not cool. anyway...i dont know what to do with this thing.

please help!

http://www.sergerplace.com/  is my favorite serger link so far. I'm new to serging too. I just bought one used this past summer, my first one, and have just begun to use it this month.
Go down to the Serger Q & A's. It's a good place to start.

A serger complements your sewing machine.  It creates the finished looking stitches you see in ready to wear clothing.  It creates the seams, edge finishes, and special techinques (like a rolled hem, flatlock stitching, etc.)  If your serger has a coverstitch, you can create a double stitched (finished) hem on your clothing, otherwise, hems will have to be done on your sewing machine.
