Garage Sale Saturday

A few months ago, Philip decided that we should have a garage sale to weed out some of our excess stuff. We are huge packrats and have more stuff than most people we know. A garage sale is a great way to sit outside drinking beer and make money from it. We aren't expecting to make much, but we have some really great stuff for sale including lots of books, movies, movies, some of my old photo gear, crafty goodness, a ton of random stuff and even a serger with all the fixins. If you live in the area, please stop by. We will go until about 2pm and after that everything is shipping over to the Goodwill on Leestown.

Doh!! You are selling a serger!?!? I've been wanting one. Why are you getting rid of it? Are they worth having?

I didn't sell the serger so I am thinking about putting it on ebay or if you contact me directly I can send you the details. I bought the serger in college when I was making a bunch of clothes to sell on tour over the summer and at festivals. I still have all of the parts, the maintainence kit, and instruction booklet. Sergers are faster than sewing machines and they make a much cleaner and sturdier seam. I no longer make large amounts of clothing or have any need for a speedy second machine.

In my opinion, a serger is worth having if you are making clothing to resale since it makes very professional seams very quickly. It is also nice to have if you just don't want to deal with your seams. I use the overlock on my sewing machine which is a lot slower (probably 10x slower) than the serger and doesn't cut the edge, but I find sewing to be a relaxing hobby and I don't mind spending the extra time.
