What you'll learn in this sewing class:

Does threading your serger still stump you? What about tension and stitch variations? No matter what brand you own (your serger does not have to be a BERNINA model but must be in good working order), this class will give you the information and confidence you need to drag it out of the closet and put it to use! This class will also cover the BERNINA L 850. For planning purposes, please email us your serger brand and model no. when you register for class. 

This class is FREE if you bought your BERNINA from Artistic Artifacts

STUDENT SUPPLY LIST: Please bring the following with you to class: 

  • your serger (any brand) with foot pedal, power cord and manual plus all accessories that came with your machine; 
  • 4 or 5 cones — they should be different colors — of serger thread (WonderFil’s SoftLoc, Mettler, Guterman, or Maxi-Lock); #80 Universal needles
  • small scissors and fabric scraps.
