We are excited to now have Linda Bratten of Linda Bratten Creations teaching Serger Classes at our store. Linda's first class will be February 12th 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Her classes will be the 2nd Tuesday of each month. This monthly project program is designed to help you become more acquainted with your serger and more confident when using it on all projects. You will need the "Ready, Set, Serge" book so enroll early so we can order sufficient books for each student. Other brands of sergers (we are a Babylock store) are welcome as long as you know your individual machine. In the first class you will be making cord covers. Class fee $20.00 plus a kit will need to be purchased at the store.
Why not make it a goal this year to get to know your serger better? You will be fascinated to discover its potential as we work our way through the book, Ready, Set, Serge by Georgie Melot.
We will start our adventure by creating a cord cover. This is a wonderful item to help camouflage those power cords we find a necessity. In this session you will learn how to serge a straight line, use decorative threads, and consider several options for turning tubes. If you so desire, you can embellish your cord covers with embroidered names to help organize your sewing area.
Required Purchase: Book, Ready, Set, Serge By Georgie Melot
