|This 3-hour class was the first of two for owners of Viking sergers. My DM just gave me her White SL34 (10 years old) and I had no idea how to use it. Three of the students had 936s and one had the new 901.
The class started with an overview of needles, threads, and the accessories that come with Viking sergers. We discussed maintenance and the warranty, then proceeded with threading which we did at least 3 times with virtually one-on-one instruction.
Then we serged some basic cotton, adjusting our tensions so we could see what happens when they are a little off. Finally, the instructor showed us how to start in the middle of a long seam by trimming and options for tying off the ends.
What a great experience! The instructor was very knowledgeable, patient, and kept the class interesting. It's exactly what I needed to build confidence.
(BTW, my machine broke about 15 minutes before the class ended. When I found out the estimate for repair, I decided to instead purchase a 905. WOO HOO!!)
