Class Overview

Use luxurious fabric and your serger to easily create stylish projects alongside fashion designer Angela Wolf. Learn to handle sumptuous silks as you use your serger to sew gorgeous infinity, bias and pieced scarves. Add interest to taffeta, silk dupioni and linen with serger pintucks and gathers. Then, use your embellished fabric to make elegant, decorative pillows with quick and clean closures. Sew up beautiful bags from silk charmeuse as you learn to apply contrasting linings, install exposed metal zippers and add contrast with custom piping — all in a few streamlined steps on one machine. Create a super-cute faux suede clutch featuring a boxed bottom and a lining with enclosed seams. Transform embellished fabric into a fold-over clutch with a designer touch. Plus, dress up your bags with jump rings, charms, chains and more. Create quick serger projects and tap into the versatility of your machine!g
