Serger Club



The serger club continues into the realm of decorative serging. We will explore a variety of threads that can be used on a serger. Also, we will also continue to build your resource notebook with stitches we may not have gotten to in the first class.  This class includes a kit that includes a few decorative threads as well as a few supplies needed for some special techniques.  In addition to the standard foot, we will use an elastic foot, and a lace applicator foot or universal blind stitch foot for the Juki.

 

Prep before class: Make sure your serger is in working order.  Gather all the supplies required for the class listed below.

Classes and Lessons

In an effort to assure that each student gets the attention of our teachers we pay close attention to the size of each lesson and class that we put on our schedule. Because of this our class sizes are typically small. We recommend that you reserve your space as soon as you can. You can sign up for classes online, in store, or over the phone. You can sign up for lessons either over the phone or in the store.

It is very important that you read the details of each class description. Within the class description you will see the items that you will need for the project as well as the skill level for that class. Some classes you will need to have certain things prepared for the class, so it is very important to carefully read the description.

Class Cancellations:  If you are unable to attend a class, lesson, or event that you have signed up for we ask for a 24-hour notice. If you let us know 24 hours before the class, we will issue you a store credit for the price of the class. If you do not let us know before the 24-hour time period, you will forfeit the cost of the class.

Weather-Related Class and Lesson Cancellations:  Angels values the importance of our customers safety and will close the store during inclement weather if necessary. Angels follows the Salem School District for weather related closures. We DO NOT follow the school for delayed openings. If you are scheduled for a class or a lesson on a day that the weather is questionable you can either go by the listing of the Salem School district, check our Facebook page and whenever possible we will call and/or email all customers who are scheduled for a class or lesson on a day that we close the shop. If we do close the shop due to the weather, we will credit your account for that class and try to get you rescheduled as soon as possible.
