    This is a must have for every serger owner. When I started watching this dvd, I felt like I was visiting with my best friend. Mary Jo is so knowledgeable about sergers and serger tecniques. She explains and demonstrates everything so clearly! In fact, I purchased all of her dvds about three years ago, and I still return to them to jog my memory or get new ideas. I’ve seen others, but, in my opinion, hers are by far the best! If you watch one, you’ll order the others!
