I've had a serger sitting in my hallway closet for 4 years. I finally decide I need to take a serger class in order to get comfortable with using it. My next step was to call all the local stores with classes. The Stonemountain & Daughter Fabric Store had many classes but all were filled, so I had my name placed on their waiting list.

At the last moment, I was able to enroll in their Serger Worshop II which required the student to already know how to thread their segers and serge basic seams. I hadn't done that in a while, so on Saturday I praticed and got prepared for the class.

Bonus, the teacher helped everyone re-thread their machines because we had to change the thread a lot during the class. The class requirement wasn't strictly held.

This class is designed to teach all the other uses for a serger, such as sergering corners, curves, using decorative threads (which the instructor provided), serge elastics using flatlock and regular serger seams, pratice blind hemming or flatlock hemming, etc.

They only allowed 6 students during the class so there were plenty of time for the instructor to answer questions.

The pace was very relaxed and everyone had time to pratice.

I highly recommend this class. The instructor did comment that the class went at a faster pace than normal because she held the same class but the students weren't able to complete what we did.
