Serger Technique Club

If you love your serger for making garment and other projects easier and neater but want to know how to use its potential for decorative stitching, join us for new techniques each month to do just that! Whether your machine is new or much loved, we can have fun and learn together by making different projects using the full range of stitches sergers provide. 

We make a variety of projects that are largely influenced by student interest. If there is a technique or item you'd like to learn, let Amberly know!

Projects will not be completed in class, but the techniques will be demonstrated and practiced so you understand how to recreate it at home.

July 26th - Christmas In July! Candy Cane Table Runner & Napkins* - We will learn coverstitch applique, how to use our chainstitch for decorative purposes, apply piping around curves, and make rolled hems beautifully! You will need a 5mm piping foot and an clear foot would be very helpful, though isn't required, for this class. The pattern from Sookie Sews can be purchased in the store, you will provide your own fabric and threads.

August 23rd - Hemming t-shirts - We will look at 3 techniques for making hems on knit fabrics: rolled hem, blind hemstitch (FOOT), and coverstitch.

September 27th - Acacia panty pattern - We will make a basic panty in class and Amberly will share some other patterns and techniques to help you have even more me-mades!  The pattern is free if you sign up for the Megan Nielson newsletter (you can unsubscribe later if the styles aren't to your liking) Here is where you sign up, then follow directions in your welcome email to download the pattern and directions. You will need to print the pattern before class. Amberly will have more information in your student email. 

October 25th - TBD
November 22nd - TBD
December 27th - TBD

You will need to bring your serger or combo/coverstitch machine in good working order (serviced in the last year or so), the stitch card, and manual if it is not a current Baby Lock, Bernina, or Bernette. Don't forget the power cord and foot pedal. Be sure you know how to thread the loopers. For some projects/techniques specialty feet can be helpful, those will be listed above and in the email you will receive before Club.

Some projects have a pattern to purchase, we will have those available when you register for Club. Fabrics are also available for purchase.  Participants will receive a 15% discount on patterns and supplies for each project.
