A serger is a type of sewing machine that binds two pieces of fabric together using an overlock stitch that is created using 3-5 threads. One of the major differences between a sewing machine and a serger is that a serger can cut the fabric as it sews, making many projects faster and more efficient. A seam sewn on a serger is more durable than standard sewn seams, and frequently look more polished. Serger machines, also known as overlock machines, make sewing knit fabrics much easier, as they completely enclose the seam allowance and prevent fraying. While some projects can be done 100% on a serger, a serger cannot replace a regular sewing machine. A regular machine is required for sewing facings, zippers, top stitching, and button holes, just to name a few examples. A serger cannot do these jobs.
