Whether you’re a novice or experienced serger owner, this comprehensive, hands-on workshop is great for learning and perfecting all of your serger’s stitches.


What makes the edge of a rolled hem roll? How do you avoid stretching the seam on your beautiful knit tee? How and why to manipulate tensions and change differential feed for various fabrics. You'll learn this and more!


We’ll talk about the wide variety of beautiful decorative threads sergers allow us to use and see loads of lovely samples. Students will leave with a workbook loaded with valuable information, samples and the knowledge to tackle any serger project successfully.

"I own a basic serger but have been too scared to use it. Now, I'm so EXCITED to try out all these techniques at home! There is so much potential, I'm thrilled"


"I recently took several serger classes at the ASG conference. I have used your book and so many tips from class. The book is great and I refer to it often."
