What we'll do

This class works best as a private or booked with a friend! Mornings work for me as I have to open the shop at noon, so feel free to request a date. Please make request one week in advance. Private Lesson: Intro to Overlock Class Level: Beginner Age Requirements: 18 and older Average Class Size: 1 person! Learn the in and outs of the daunting serger machine, threading, maintenance, and multiple stitches this tricky machine can accomplish. I teach some of the many stitches and projects you can accomplish with the overlock machine. We will sew sample pieces mostly, but if you have a project you would like to bring in, you are more than welcome to! Teacher: Karin Persan "by Better Than Jam"
