Basics & More

Amy goes over all the basics of setting up a serger & practicing the basic stitches. She demonstrates differences between machines & talks about the importance of testing out stitches with scraps before any project. Her style is clear & easy to follow. What I really liked were the lessons she included on different decorative stitches, especially the tips for working with difficulty threads, yarn & ribbon.

So far, I know that I will like learning the ins and outs of the serger. I need all the help I can get. I will be taking the course very slow.
Being a senior citizen, at age 68, I have to try hard to remember everything. Notes and printouts will be my friend, for sure.
