This class is a prerequisite for using our sergers during Open Sew Studio or in a sewing class, unless you have experience and feel comfortable operating a serger sewing machine.
Wednesday, 4 - 5 PM
Saturday, 12 – 1 PM
Come learn how to use a serger sewing machine in a fun and supportive environment!
This 1-hour class will teach you the hows and whys of sewing with a serger. Once you have the basics of sewing on a regular sewing machine down, learning how to use a serger can really up your sewing game. We will cover, how a serger differs from a regular sewing machine, the parts of the serger, different stitch and tension settings, and do some practice sewing on woven and knit fabrics. We will also go over the basics of how to thread a serger. You will leave understanding how a serger works, and feel confident to add serged seam finishes to your sewing practice at home or here in our studio.
We offer this class on Wednesday from 4-5 and Saturday from 12-1 on a regular basis. Select a date from the drop down menu for the class you wish to attend.
You do not need to bring a machine to the class. You will sew on one of our Janome machines in the studio.
No preparation is required but you should feel comfortable sewing on a regular sewing machine before you take on using a serger machine.
Please familiarize yourself with our class policies before enrolling.
