Your first steps with the serger!
Do you already know your sewing machine like the back of your hand? Well then, it's time for you to enhance your sewing creations! With the serger (overlock macine) it's super simple to make the most impeccable seams even with the most elastic fabrics, whilst the finishing touches are also superb! Quickly learn how to set up and use a serger with this new course from Swantje - a woman who knows the serger machine inside and out.
Sewing like a pro!
Your instructor will show you everything there is to know - from the first settings to proper threading, trimming, stitching and decorating, to the fine finishing touches for your projects. You'll also learn how to sew two, three or even four threads. With your instructor, you'll be guided through two projects whilst overcoming the classic errors on the way. Thus, you will discover all the possibilities offered by your serger.
What you'll learn:
- how to set the machine correctly (depending on the choice of fabric)
- how to thread your threads correctly
- how you use each stitch
- how to perfectly process, decorate or rob elastic and non-elastic fabrics
- how to avoid classic rookie mistakes
Designs that you'll create
You'll create a low-cut t-shirt with bias and stretch fabric. Once this exercise is successful, you'll then create a cotton and silk scarf with a top-stitched hem.
What you need:
- A serger (NB. the serger/overlock machine used in the course is a Bernina Overlock 1150 MDA)
to your schedule!
