This class would have been great for someone who is thinking of buying a serger or has one still in the box. I was hoping to improve my basic skills and didn't learn anything new (except one nifty cuff technique) in this class. Diane Cedolia is a fine teacher and helped everyone who needed it. However, we were given written instructions that did not correspond to the oral instructions. This confused a number of people. The sample garment was so simple that the written instructions could have been eliminated entirely. The sample garment was a one size fit no one cardigan in navy. Given the purpose of the garment (learning only), a lighter color and use of different colors would have greatly increased our understanding of serging. The first instruction given, to sew a grosgarin ribbon into the shoulder seam caused horrible puckering and had to be cut off and resewn without the ribbon. This should have been tried out prior to the class and altered to be successful. No discussion of tension was done-an important topic for sergers IMHO. Many of the samples were badly cut and had to be redone-too sloppy for the $26 materials fee.
In conclusion, this would be a good class to take if you were contemplating purchasing a serger and wanted to try one out, but not a good class for learning/improving basic skills.
