Weeks 1 - 4: 10/14 - 11/04 - Know and love your Serger ($140)
Nancy is excited to share her serger- related expertise with you, in person, as she can coach you in person, on your own machine.
The first 4 weeks of this 8 week offering will focus on how to maximize use of your serger, master the different stitches, and know how and when to use them.
Participants will be expected to make a “Serger Stitch Sample Book,” noting the stitch settings for “best practice” stitch applications, based on chosen fabrics and purpose. If you have some angst or frustration with your serger, this class is for you! You will become knowledgeable about your own serger and appreciative of its usefulness in replicating many ready to wear clothes. You will have the opportunity to construct a garment and create a stitch catalogue. Serger competence is not required, although previous serger experience is strongly advised. A 4 (or more) thread serger is required.
(Sergers are brought to classes for practice following instruction and demonstration).
Recommended Book(s): Sewing with Sergers - the Complete Handbook for Overlock Sewing (Brown / Palmer) strongly suggested.
