BERNINA StitchWise: Smart Serging EVENT

November 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Are you ready to take your serger to the next level? Join us for this one-day class and gain a greater understanding of how a serger works. In this fun, hands-on BERNINA StitchWise course, instructors will teach you new techniques on how to customize fabrics with decorative stitches like piping and chain stitch. We’ll also explore ways that you can use these techniques in your home décor projects like making an envelope pillow or bolster pillow.

Discover how a serger can help you finish your home décor, quilting, and garment projects faster and more professionally.

Sergers are a must-have for anyone who sews. A serger can finish a project faster and cleaner than any other sewing machine, making it perfect for the busy home decorator who wants to get projects done quickly. Sergers also create decorative effects that make your projects look professional and beautiful.

Sergers are machines with three or four threads that stitch over or under each other to create a clean edge on fabric. They have many uses, from finishing seams on quilts to adding fringe to pillows and curtains, but they’re most commonly used by home seamstresses as an alternative to sewing knits with traditional sewing machines because they don’t stretch out like regular stitches do when you pull them tight while sewing something together — which makes them ideal for sewing stretchy fabrics like spandex!

Learn how to create both a coverstitch and chain stitch for beautiful decorative effects.

You can easily create a chain stitch in your serger with a combination of coverstitch and zigzag stitches. Chain stitching is used to create decorative effects on the edge of fabric, such as hems and cuffs. By combining these two stitches, you can produce a beautiful decorative edge that looks like it was hand sewn by an expert seamstress!

Expand your rolled hem skills as you sew the piping into place.

You’ll learn how to create a rolled hem, insert piping, sew the pillow cover together and finish it.

In this class you will learn:

  • how to create a rolled hem on fabric
  • how to insert piping into your project
  • how to sew the pillow cover together with a serger

You’ll also have the opportunity to talk with other students about their projects or share ideas for what you want from your own serger.

Follow along with our instructors as they guide you through the entire construction process. They will also offer helpful serger tips, tricks, and techniques throughout the class.

The serger is a versatile piece of equipment that makes many sewing tasks easier. You will learn how to use an overlocker to create decorative effects, how to use the serger for finishing sewing projects, and how to create a bolster pillow!

Experiment with an overlocker in an entirely new way to create a gorgeous bolster pillow for your home.

You’ll learn to sew decorative cover and chain stitching, insert piping, flatlocking, and rolled hem. Overlocker skills will get a boost while you enjoy stitching this fun project.

You’ll leave the class with a gorgeous bolster pillow, one that can be customized to fit your style and your home décor. You’ll also have learned about how sergers work in a variety of ways, which will help you dress up any project from now on!
