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. This class is designed for the beginning serger but everyone is welcome to join in this fun social serging class.

 In October Joggers or Lounge pants perfect for the coming colder months. Choose from the following patterns: The Carita Joggers or Portlanders pants from New Horizon Pattern company. They are both comfy enough to wear around the house yet versatile enough to wear out and about. Patterns Come in sizes xx-small, x-small, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26.

Print your pattern: Print your pattern on your home printer or send the AO file to to have it printed on large paper. (contact me with questions) file gives you general information on printing PDF patterns and printing optional “layers”. Make sure your printer is set to “Actual Size”
