Serger Owner’s Classes

threading a serger

When you purchase a serger (or any machine!) at Let’s Sew, owner’s classes are included with your purchase for free.

We understand that machines have changed a lot in the past few years or that you may have never sewn on a serger. That’s why when you purchase your new Baby Lock serger at our shop, we include owner’s classes on how to use it for free.

Machine Owners Classes Cover the Basics

We will go over all the basics of your new serger and teach you how to use all of its functions. Once you have taken your owner’s class, you may take it again anytime. There is no limit on how many times you may take these complimentary classes.

All machine owners classes are by appointment on the suggested day (Wednesday for serger machine owner’s classes) and are dependent on staff availability and/or other regularly scheduled classes. Some machines may have more than one owner’s class available.
