Beginner to advanced in one class

This class is fantastic in that it is packed with clear information that takes you from beginner to advanced (or at least intermediate!). Amy explains how the serger works and provides tremendous tips along the way. The only thing that would be helpful is for the first project to be super basic, such as creating napkins with a rolled hem.

thank you Amy

I have very much enjoyed learning from this class. Right from taking my overlockerfom the box, to producing the boxy bag, (and then boxer shorts for my boys). A good teacher showing basics, and encouraging to move to more projects.

Not just for beginners

I have had 3 different serger over past 20 years so am not a beginner. But I learnt so much in this class. All the problems I have had in past were answered here. I am finally ready to use my serger in so many new ways instead of just making my edges look nice for hemming. I never knew gathering ruffles was so easy - now ready to make some dresses for my granddaughter. Amy made the serger so less intiminating.

Wonderful class

I have been serging for years and someone I met in a serger class suggested I take this class even though I was not a beginner. I am thankful to her for that advise. I loved this class. Even though I had Babylock Evolution, I learned techniques and now understand my machine and the stitches so much more. I did not want the class to end as it was so much fun! Amy you are wonderful!

Excellent class

I've never used a serger, yet I was tired of the limitations of my sewing machine. After investing in a serger, this class was the missing manual. Within one day, I was up and running with the confidence I needed. I'm not going to let it collect dust! This is one of the Craftsy classics.
