Overlock School

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm | $275

Are you ready to take your garment sewing skills to the next level? We are excited to welcome BERNINA Educator Jaime David for a weekend-long overlock/serger event!

Learn how an Overlocker/Serger machine can enhance your sewing skills, increase productivity and improve the professional finish of your handmade wardrobe. In this two day hands-on workshop, you will learn the basics of serging and various stitch techniques and applications.

We will apply those basic skills to making the Helene cardigan from Jalie patterns. This beginner-friendly pattern has a loose style that makes it easy to fit, and it includes instructions for a huge range of sizes from girls’ to womens’ (21″-50″ bust).

Teacher: Jaime David, BERNINA eductor
Skill level: Beginner. No prior serger/overlock experience needed

This class meets on: Saturday & Sunday, October 13 & 14, 10am-5pm with a lunch break.

The course registration fee includes a kit containing the pattern, 2 yards knit fabric (you will be emailed a choice of colors after registration), and serger thread.

Required Supplies to bring with you: (all supplies are available for purchase at Gotham Quilts)
– Paper scissors
– Fabric scissors
– Marking tool of choice (chalk, pencil, etc)
– Pins
– Seam ripper

** Classroom sergers will be available for sale after the workshop at discounted prices. If you are ready to add a serger to your tools, let us know and we will give you the details!
