Confidence Builder!

This was a really good class -- I actually made the box bag -- I never thought a serger could be use for anything but sewing seams! This was a really fun class and a definite confidence boost! Thanks for offering this class!

Serging made easy!

This class is perfect, everything you need to start serging. I had zero experience serging, and I'm just a novice when it comes to sewing, but I learned a lot and was serging fast!

Using the techniques from this class, I applied it to my first project and made a dress for my Daughter and it turned out great. It was for a costume, Louise from Bob's Burgers, but she liked it so much she wore it to school for her first day of 3rd grade!

The information I have learned from Amy's class is absolutely invaluable. Before I took the class, I pretty much only used the 4 thread flatlock and prayed the tensions didn't mess up. Now I feel comfortable trying out all of the different stitches my machine can do, using special decorative threads, and tweaking my tensions to make them right. I feel like anyone who buys a serger should take this class.

Great Course,

Have really enjoyed putting my serger through its paces. Still getting to grips with tensions but made the box bag and it looks great. Has spurred me on to try the other projects.

Thanks Amy for clear, understandable lessons.

Serging ahead

Had my serger for several months and not able to get good results, saw Amy's class and thought I'd give it a go. Wow! within hours I'd found out what I was doing wrong and have now made my sample Serger Stitch Book so I can refer back to what I have learned. Brilliant class Amy, I'm going to try the box bag first.
