Make a tote with 4-thread overlock in one sessifabrics)
Start with Basic Serger Techniques. Find out all your serger can do. Learn the parts of your serger, how to thread and manage the tensions and how to trouble-shoot problems while creating a book of techniques — from overlock to rolled edge — in the first class. Serge a patchwork tote in the second class, a knit top in the third.
Use decorative threads and fancy serger stitches to create something wonderful.
Move on to Flatlocked Scarf/Wrap: You’ve mastered your serger, now practice by making this one of a kind scarf/wrap. We’ll start by embellishing the velvet with heavy re-embroidered lace and pressing into the velvet to create a design that is uniquely you. Then we’ll piece the scarf together with decorative thread and the flatlock stitch. It’ll be finished up with an optional hook and button closure. Easy to make; could be the perfect gift for all your friends!
Open to all makes and models of sergers. Let us know which one you have when you register. Don’t have a serger? Rent one from us!
