Basic Serging - St. George



Congratulations on the purchase of your new BERNINA serger. The information in this Class will help
you learn the basics of using your new piece of sewing equipment. Even though it is very different from your
sewing machine, once you learn to incorporate serging techniques into your sewing, you’ll wonder how you
ever got along without it.
   Sometimes called the microwave of sewing, your serger will speed your sewing in several ways, letting
you produce more in less time. The speed of the serger is faster than a sewing machine and because it
performs several operations (trimming, seaming, and overcasting) at the same time, you sew faster, and
in the process, produce neater and more professional-looking results.

This class will go over the following subjects:

  • 4-Thread Balanced Stitch
  • Adjusting Tension Settings
  • Micro Thread Control
