Before You Buy a Serger

Thursday, February 14, 12-1 pm

Serger? Coverstitch? Rolled hem? What’s it all about and what can I do with it? This lecture will clear up some of the mysteries of the wonderful machine called a serger (and that confusing coverstitch!). Make an informed decision before you buy and come back for Basic Sergery and Beyond once you’ve decided it’s the right machine for you.

One hour lecture with demonstrations and samples.

Do you want to go beyond the Big 4-Butterick, McCalls, Vogue, Simplicity – but you’re not quite sure if they are “good” or not? And then you buy them and they’re online and you don’t know how to get them printed? Or you’ve spent hours taping 8 ½ x 11 sheets into a full size pattern and never want to do it again? We’ve been there and done that so let us show you how to make sense of it all, including tracing those Burdastyle magazine patterns!!
