About the Event
If you're like many people, the thought of using a serger (or overlock machine) is intimidating. It has all those threads and it cuts the fabric as it sews - scary! After you've taken this class, you'll realize, sergers aren't scary, they're magic!
In this basic machine class you will learn how to:
- Properly thread your serger
- Adjust your stitches
- Deal with tension issues
- Troubleshoot your machine
This class is limited to 4 students.
Supplies: Bring your own machine, or use one of ours. If you will be bringing your own machine, you will also need to bring your manual and thread. More details will be in the supply list we'll send you after you sign up.
