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. This class is designed for the beginning serger but everyone is welcome to come join in this fun social serging class.
This month it’s all about bottoms for your spring and summer wardrobe. Choose either a skirt, pants or shorts to make in class. Each one has a yoga-style waist band, no elastic options and they are quick and easy to make. You'll need approximately 2-1/3 to 2-1/2 yards of fabric depending on choices. Check pattern for exact yardage.
