You asked: Can you quilt with a serger?

Can a serger do a chain stitch?

Chainstitch: a stable stitch that appears as a standard straight stitch on the right side and a decorative chain on the underside. … On four-thread sergers, two needles and two loopers create more secure stitches for seaming/finishing. The stitches perform the same functions as three-threads, only with extra durability.

Is it worth buying a serger?

When you are sewing with woven (non-stretchy fabrics like in the photo above) a serger is helpful because it will finish the raw edges and prevent fraying. But it is not necessarily the most durable way to sew the seam, so the proper method is to sew the seams with a sewing machine first.

What is the benefit of a serger?

A serger produces strong, durable stitches using multiple threads that prevent fraying and last for years. Whether using two threads or as many as eight, a serger encases the fabric securely while still allowing enough give to prevent tearing or broken stitches while surviving countless launderings.
