Can a creative moment win a Serger?

SewMamaSew at is hosting a giveaway for a Husqvarna Viking Serger. They've asked the question, "How would your life be better with a serger?", and are looking for creative responses from which to choose a winner. If you have done a fair amount of sewing and do not own a serger, my guess is that you, like me have wished for one. As a teacher one of my goals is to inspire the children I teach to become life long learners. Several years ago I received a grant and was able to set up a classroom cooking center, tool center, and sewing center. In the sewing center, it was priceless one year to see the pride and sense of accomplishment students felt in sewing a pillow -- even kindergarten students! So what does this all have to do with the question -- How would my life be better with a serger? I, too, always want to remain a life long learner. My sewing started as a child -- learning from my mom. When I graduated from high school my mom gave me a beautiful little old portable Singer sewing machine. I loved it. Not only was it cute, but it sewed a beautiful straight stitch. I used that for many years. My next machine was purchased several years ago. My Janome is great, and sews beautifully. Now I'd love to learn to use a serger and take my sewing projects to a new level. So.... here is my moment of creativity...
See a difference in my sewing,
Easy serging will get me going,
Really quick and effortless,
Giving seams loveliness,
Even finishes in a snap,
Ready I am to own one at last!
