YES!!! We have an old straight-stitch Singer too, we have saved it to work on paddling and outdoor clothes, boat sails, tents, tarps, sleeping bags....
I am *encouraged* to know that a Serger can be bought for well under a grand. I would really like to have one in the future once I have regained my sewing skills imparted to me by the wonderful practical Sisters of Mary and Jesus during my 'formative years'. (A professional tailor once *admired* my work LOL. Guess those nuns took their teaching seriously. I can still hear them telling me to pull the thread through and tie it, and to rip out that less-than-perfect seam.)
