Intro To Sergers

Tensions, threading, overlocks...oh my! A manual serger can be intimidating to learn but this class will teach you all about the basics of operating a serger. 

In this class, you will explore all of the features and capabilities of a serger. Learn how to thread your serger, properly set your tensions, clean/maintain your serger and create several of the most commonly used serger stitches, including a standard 4-thread overlock, a 3-thread overlock, and a rolled hem. You will leave class with samples of the various stitches, including notes on machine and tension settings for each one. Put them in a binder for future reference! 

You will need to come to class with your own serger.
