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.

Intro to Sewing (Beginners)

Intro to Sewing class apron

 

Interested in learning (or re-learning if it’s been awhile!) how to sew? Join us in our Intro to Sewing class to learn the basics of sewing.

This class will go over getting comfortable at a sewing machine – it’s not as scary as it looks, we promise! – basic stitches and seams. You’ll also learn correct pressing and pinning techniques.

Kits are provided, which is our way of saying everything you need to create a skirt apron (pictured above) will be here waiting for you. Our sewing classroom is stocked with Baby Lock sewing machines, cutting mats, rotary cutters and irons to make this intro course fun and easy.

Why create a skirt apron? We chose this project because the gingham (checkered) fabric gives you good, built-in guidelines to help you sew a straight seam. The skirt apron pattern also uses simple sewing techniques and seams that you’ll be able to use and build on for future projects.

Note: Our store is a FRAGRANCE-FREE zone. Please be courteous of other students and staff when attending class and do not use fragrances. Thank you!
