Cover Stitch Workshop

Because the cover stitch has lots of built-in stretch, it’s a wonderful way to hem knits, but did you ever think of all the other ways you can use this versatile stitch? In this hands-on workshop we’ll do a separating zipper application, a lapped seam, a no-facing neckline finish, an elastic application, and stitch “in the round.” Then it’s time for fun! When you put decorative thread in the chain looper, watch what happens. Did you know that you can actually “draw” on fabric with a chain stitch? The cover hem is a workhorse and a whole new embellishment tool–all in one!

Students should bring: Cover stitch capable serger, foot control, power cord,  instruction manual and all accessories, extra needles, 4 cones beige serger thread; basic sewing supplies: scissors, pins, pen or pencil. A kit (including fabric and workbook) is provided. Kit fee.

Fees and references on request
