My Best Friend!

 With Valentines Day coming up I thought it would be fun to post this letter to my serger I wrote as part of Sew Together's 'Best Sewing Friend' series. My very best sewing friend is my serger-- of course!

We've had our differences, and sometimes I neglect to let my serger know how appreciated it is. I'm so glad Maryanne and Caroline are giving me this opportunity to rectify that!

Dearest Serger,

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love you because you  make my work faster. I'm in awe of traditional construction and finishing techniques. But with two toddlers underfoot, sometimes it's sew fast or not at all. Thanks to you I can finish a project in the small bits of time when both kids are asleep!


I love you because you make my work neater. I'm not always good with details; but serging my makes my seam allowances look great!
I love you because you make my work last longer. When my unfinished seams are fraying in wash, the  serged pj's we made together are on their second kid.


Though we may bicker and agrue, know that you will always have a special place in my sewing room.... and in my heart.
 
Your Friend Always,
Palak

Hope you all have a good weekend!
