If you are ready to make the leap from a sewing machine to a serger, you have come to the right place. This fun video serves as the perfect introduction to your serger's unique functions.

A serger can join, wrap and trim your seams in one fast and easy step, and as if that weren't enough, it can also finish your projects with ruched layers or rolled hems. Sewing with a serger adds a professional polish that is not achievable when sewing with a basic sewing machine.

For most, the first step in serging presents the biggest stumbling blockŚthreading. But with Deborah Cacciamani as your guide, you will go up, over and through needles and loopers in no time at all. Then she will show you how to change out thread, and how to fix breaks and snags. And once you master proper threading, it will be all downhill from there. You can then proceed with serging and experience fun around every thread-wrapped corner.

In this video class, you'll learn how to:
  • Easily thread your serger.
  • Choose the right tools and supplies for serging.
  • Select the perfect needles and fabric.
  • Adjust tension, seam length and seam width.
  • Make basic stitches including 4-thread overlock, 3-thread overlock, flatlock stitch and rolled hem.
  • Serge with decorative thread.
  • Care for and maintain your serger.
As a bonus, complete step-by-step instructions for a 4-piece tablescape including a napkin, napkin ring, place mat and table runner are included in this class.

I enjoyed this class very much. Understanding the tension was amazing, finally!!! Never was it explained to me before. Looking forward to applying this to a project. Knowing I can come back to retake the class is great. Not afraid of getting stuck.

Offers multiple sections from basics tools forward, everything you need to get started in 10 sections. Pace is good and can backup to rehear. Very pleased. If you join the "half-off" club, you gt exactly that. Even at $25, good value for the class.

This was my 3rd lesson on basic serving and FINALLY someone explained how the different thread tensions work! With examples! Thank you! Usually you are advised to play around until your stitch looks right, and I always felt like a bank robber that tries to pick up a safe lock combination. Same goes for how to determine correct cutting width and how to adjust thread tensions for all of it to look great together. Thank you again!

I have watched this from start to finish.... If it were possible to award 1000 Stars I most definitely would.
The lessons Tips and Techniques were Brilliantly structured, Tuition was clear, concise and easy to understand. This has to rate of one of the best classes I have ever purchased. I will be looking out for more from Debbie Cacciamani because of this lesson I am resolved to use my Serger more and more. In the past when I used to Teach Machine knitting, I only ever used my Serger for Cut n Sew necklines. I am now Hooked on my Serger and on Annie's Brilliant courses.

Hi What a great class I loved it and can't wait to use my Serger. I have had my Serger for probably 12 years and have only used it a handful of times. I had to take it into a shop to have it retreaded. It intimated me. I only used it to serge the edges of pillowcases. I'm so excited now I can use another color thread other than white on every thing. When are you going to have another Serger class out? Thank you again you are a wonderful instructor.
