|Fast Start on the Serger|
A single 3-hour class to get familiar with threading and operating a basic serger
There's definitely a learning curve to using a serger, but no serious sewing room is complete without one. It's a must for sewing knits and giving a professional finish to all your sewing projects.
This 3-hour class takes the mystery and frustration out of learning to use a serger. Build your confidence with using a basic overlock machine/serger. You’ll learn to thread it and set it up for 2, 3 or 4-thread functions and get lots of practice time to develop accuracy in this new sewing skill. You’ll also learn to thread the machine with ease, set it up for 1-needle or 2-needle overlock stitching and for narrow rolled hems.
Take your sewing skills to the next level and make the serger a part of your sewing lifestyle!
