A Surge of Serger Crafts

Distinctive Serger Gifts and Crafts
Baker and Young
1989

I have always been a bit fascinated by a serger or overlock machine. For those not in the cult of fabric, a serger finishes seams but also cuts the fabric. They look kind of cool with all the spools of thread and they usually have a neat finish to the seams. As a sewing hack, I have always wanted one. Serger-related materials are definitely worth collecting. I probably would have bought this (back in the day) based on the title alone.

Crafts and the Disabled

Crafts and the Disabled
Anderson
1982

This book has projects and instructional advice for integrating this into a program for special needs adults. Disabled in the context of this book is meant to cover anyone with some kind of challenge. Unfortunately, this lumps everyone into a large group regardless of their specific need. I am quite sure adaptations for someone with vision issues is going to benefit from same craft project as someone with arthritic hands.
