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've stitched professionally in a factory including using a serger, but when I brought my new serger home I was overwhelmed by how many choices I had. This class helped me understand how to put the different options to use and even better that there's no wrong way to do any of it. Loved the class and the instructor.
