Join Candace, Marina, and Amanda to learn all about the Baby Lock Triumph - Top of the Line Combination Serger and Cover-Stitch Machine with Air threading needles, and loopers.  

Triumph Sergers will be provided for this event.

Who is this Event for?

  •          Those who have never used a Serger but have always wanted to find out what a Serger could do.
  •          Those that have never used a Cover-Stitch machine or don’t own a Cover-Stitch machine.
  •          Those who already own a smaller Serger and want to find out what you can do with this large table 8-thread Combination Machine.

What you will be learning:

Day 1: The Anatomy of A Serger, Threading for various stitches. Using decorative threads and bypassing the threading ports. We will explore several Feet and Attachments that are available for this machine.  You will learn how easy it is to convert the Triumph from a Serger to a Cover-Stitch machine and learn techniques for sewing, hemming and quilting.

Day 2: We will construct Amanda’s “Sulky T-Shirt”. The Pattern and Fabric will be provided for this class. You can pick up your fabric and pattern prior to class so your pattern and fabric will be ready to cut out in class. Amanda will also be showing us “Pattern Hacks” with this pattern to change the look creating different styles with just one pattern. Using you new skills, you will complete this garment on the Triumph.
