Skill Level: Advanced beginner serger + must know how to thread and operate serger
Date: Saturday, June 6
Time: 10:00 - 4:00

Have you wanted to learn how to use those fancy stitches on your serger? This is the class for you! This chic pillow is actually a study in decorative serger techniques A band of serger pintucks mimic the look of folded tucks, and a strip of piping inserted by serger separates two fabric panels; cover stitch is used as topstitching on a narrow band with turned edges, and decorative chain stitch creates a diamond grid in contrasting thread. The resulting look is very stylish and easy to accomplish. The lapped back edges are also cover stitched.
