This year, one of my goals was to learn to use the serger for more than just finishing seams. Today I took my first serger class on how to use the various feet. These classes will occur once a month for 6 months. So we gathered on a plain piece of fabric and then we gathered and attached a ruffled at once.
Then we worked with the cording foot, first making and putting cording on a single piece of fabric and then making it and putting it between two pieces of fabric like one would do making a pillow.
Using the cording foot again, we made a “puffing strip” and inserted a zipper.
We did not have time to make the spaghetti straps, but she demonstrated it and I will get it done this week. A really nice feature is that this teacher brings the instructions in a plastic envelope with the fabric, so when you have done your sample it becomes part of your notebook. Notice that on each page, she has put the serger settings so these will easy to refer to at a later time.
