SM Beginning Serger Garments w/Candace - Cardigan



 Beginning Serger Garments w/Candace

You have a serger and perhaps a cover-stitch machine.  Now what?  Join Candace each month to learn tips and techniques for using your serger to make basic knit garments. We will select a different garment each month and utilize time-saving techniques to make serging easy and fun. We will also look at optional finishing techniques for your garment such as bands, faux bands, and various hems

This month choose between the Chrysalis Cardigan that will wrap you in comfort and style or the Emmalyn Cardigan with straight lines and cozy pockets. Both have options for pockets, sleeve and hem length (we will not do button option in class.) This will become a favorite piece of clothing in your closet.
