In the 1970s, Sue Green-Baker wrote the book on overlock sewing and over four decades has amassed a comprehensive array of techniques, shortcuts and creative inspirations during our 3-day event.   Her exclusively trained educator will be here to share these techniques with you.



Join us for 3 fun-filled days and learn how to get the most from a serger. From the very basics to advanced techniques. You will say, “I didn’t know I could do that on a serger!”.

  1. Great Class 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2016

    This class walked us through our serger from step one. I have owned a serger for 15 years and learned things the first hour that I didn't know. I loved the detail and finally learning the "why" of certain settings. The teacher was patient and thorough. She answered all questions fully and completely!
    I absolutely LOVED this class and can't wait for the Advanced class.
