The In’s and Outs of Using a Serger – Serger Basics
Don’t have a serger? That’s totally ok, I have two that can be rented in order to take the class! Then you will be able to rent the serger during open sew (Every Tuesday 11-6 PM) for $10.00 per hour! You must take this class in order to rent the studio serger or use it during private lessons or group classes.
There is an option to rent a serger during class.
There are 3 sergers available for rental.
Serger, the machine looks scary but I will show you how easy it is to use!
Using a serger isn’t as bad as it looks! Learn how to thread, keep up and clean, change feet and adjust your stitches for perfectly balanced serging!
