In the winter I spend a lot of time sewing. Last year, Mr Chiots got me this serger for Christmas. It’s a nice machine, I read through the manual and have used it a few times. Since the manual isn’t the greatest, I finally decided to purchase the Beginner Serging class from Craftsy.com.
I’m on lesson three at the moment and thoroughly enjoying the class and I’m learning a lot. The techniques I’m learning will definitely come in handy on some sewing projects I have planned in the coming weeks.
One of the things I really appreciated about this class was figuring out how easy it is to thread my serger. I’ve heard horror stories about how difficult sergers are to thread. In fact, I was at my local fabric store once and a lady was dropping off her serger to be threaded by the sewing machine repair guy.
Now that I’m mastering what I can do with my serger, I’m certainly looking forward to all the projects I have in the works.
