Serger Class?

I've been so blessed to now have a serger! YAY! But I have no idea what I'm doing with it. I'm cozy with sewing with my old trusty machine, but this thing....FOUR THINGS OF THREAD!? It's scary!!

I'm thinking about signing up for a class. Any recommendations?

Is there any projects that I could do to learn more?

Is there a book you recommend?

Can I think of anymore questions to ask you?

Re: Serger Class?

Check w/ your local sewing shop. They should offer beginner classes. Did you get your serger at a sewing shop? If so, they probably offer a complimentary class.

The threading part, IMO, is easy vs. the serging part!!!! I made a TON of wipes -- make large ones w/ rounded corners. It's great corner practice!!!

Re: Serger Class?

I got my serger off craigslist.com (from an individual). I live near Atlanta, so I'm sure I'll be able to find something.....I'll start looking now.

Thanks! I'll start practicing. The corners are SCARY! Well...the entire thing is scary. It's like a MONSTER SEWING thing. Okay...I'm running in fear again.

I'll let you know how it goes.
