Question about Sewing Machines
Not sure what you are trying to do with your serger. An overlocker will ALWAYS finish the raw edge of the fabric. However, you can certainly serge t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. Serging knits is fantastic because the serger stitch allows for fabric stretch without popping the thread. It is easy to sew patterns that require a small seam allowance, like 1/4". Just remember that the blades must ALWAYS be activated (trim off part of the fabric) or you risk breaking the loopers. You can use either 3 or 4 threads. Using 4 threads gives just a bit more security to your garment to prevent popped seams in active wear worn during sport events, etc. Using 3 threads is ok for garments that don't experience stress on the seams.

I've even made a quilt using jelly roll fabric on a serger. A serger is ok for this type of quilt because the pinpoint accuracy of strip quilting is not required as it would be for stitching together blocks that have points & seams that must match. It is very difficult to get very accurate seams on a serger, probably partly because it stitches so much faster than a sewing machine.
Lots of info on the internet...
