I helped make Elizabethan costumes once for a show and discovered the AWESOME-NESS of a serger. I cannot justify buying one though!! I tried to buy a sewing machine that could do some cool serger-like stitches, but it isn't the same. So, I look on craigslist and find all kinds of sergers that have had 1-10 hours of use! Really, so little? So, I am wondering, just to ease my buying mind, whether those of you who took the plunge and bought a serger use it all the time, or so infrequently that the steep price tags are not worth it.
