Beginner Serger Sewing Class: Machine Basics & Techniques

Description

Gain confidence using your serger with sewing instructor Amy Alan. If you know the basics of serging, you'll now discover how versatile your machine is! Begin with an overview of serger threading and maintenance. Then, learn how to create nine different types of basic stitches and create a serger stitch book you can reference again and again. For those tricky serger slip-ups, Amy will show you how to troubleshoot common issues like poor tension, skipped stitches, fabric rippling and more. Now that you've refined your serging skills, put them to the test with three fun skill-building projects. Make an exposed zipper bag, an ombré ruffled apron and a striped knit scarf! To finish class, add versatility to your serger with blind hem, elasticator and gathering feet.
