We will get even more serious with tips, tricks, and techniques in this class.  Once again, pattern, fabric, and everything else is part of the registration to make a shirt or blouse. You will insert sleeves, attach collars and make button holes in this project.  A real confidence builder!

4 weeks, 2.5 hrs/week, over 4 weeks.

Beyond the Basics  - Level 4

The finishing details are dealt with now including zippers, in order to get the most professionally made, better than retail look on any garment including Knits and stretchy fabrics.  We will learn more finite details needed to create a virtual wardrobe of garments. Everything needed is included.

10 hours, 2.5 hrs per week, over 4 weeks.  Only prerequisite is to be a confident sewer. 

Serger 101  -  Sergers are not supplied.

Want to sew knits or learn all the magic capabilities of a serger.  Maybe the intricate threading system scares you. Join in on this 3 hour session and make your serger sing.  How it works, what makes it work, balancing and adjusting tensions, what you can do with it when it is working right will all become clear. Besides the machine, you will need the operating manual specific to it. Threads and notions will be supplied.

Serger 102 - prerequisite, Serger 101 recommended

If you are already familiar with and comfortable using your Serger, this class will give you more in-depth knowledge.  There is so much you can do with a serger that you will likely use it more than not.  Besides sewing knit fabrics, learn flat locking seams that look like ready to wear, perfect rolled hems for fine fabrics and gorgeous table linens, tons of decorative stitches to customize your projects, plus  'oh sew' much more.

4-5 weeks, 3 hrs/week, 12-15 hours.
