Do you find yourself wishing you had time to take a serger sewing class, yet never finding the time? Solution: take a serger technique workshop at home. Watch Sewing With Nancy online! It’s a 3-part workshop with my guest, Pam Mahshie, Baby Lock’s National Sewing Ambassador.
Here’s a preview of the second episode.
Quilt Binding using a 4-thread overlock stitch
With just a few changes, the basic overlock stitch can be modified to stitch binding on a quilted project. Learn how fusible thread streamlines the sewing process, producing professional results.
Gathering with a Cover Stitch
If you’ve gathered fabric before, you’ve probably stitched a row or two of basting stitches and then pulled the threads to gather the fabric. Gathering on a serger with a cover stitch can be automatic—stitch and gather at the same time. Curious? Learn now by watching online!
Create texture with pintucks, again using the cover stitch setting. Light to medium weight fabric can easily take on dimension once you know how to set up your serger.
Embellishing with Decorative Threads
Decorative threads and your serger are a prime choice for embellishing. The amazing part of this technique is that the stitching is done from the wrong side of the fabric—the pretty part only shows once the stitching is complete.
