I bought a serger without ever having owned one before or knowing anyone who owned one. I bought this class in order to learn how to properly use the machine and maintain it. It is perfect for that. The instruction is very clear and organized. I find myself continuing to refer to this class over and over again when I need to troubleshoot with my machine now or need a refresher on a technique I haven't used in a while.

Good Class

I find the class so helpful. I've only used my serger to finish seams but I'm interested in finding out what else I can do. I'm taking this in conjunction with the advanced serger class, and I've learned so much. Very worthwhile in expanding my sewing skills!

Fantastic cl ass!

As usual, Amy did a great job at teaching Beginning Serging. This is my second class with her and I'd sign up for more. I'm only sorry she lives so far away because I would take her classes in person if I could. She is extremely knowledgeable and her demeanor is calm and soothing. A great teacher!
