Serger Club- Seams, Corners, & Hems, Oh My!



Dust off those sergers, and let’s get them working for you!  Overcome your fears of using your serger.  In this first class, we will focus on various stitch settings with 4/3/2 threads for seaming, finishing, and hemming on various types of fabrics.  Some stitches we will explore are overlock, flatlock, narrow hem, rolled hem, blind hem, and lettuce leaf edging and how to use them in projects.  In addition, learn to manage curves, circles, and corners.  You will create your own serger resource book with the settings to use for the many types of stitches available to you.  Come and see what a versatile tool your serger is.
