Serger for Garment Sewing (BAKERSFIELD)

Why do you need a serger for garment sewing?

First and foremost, a serger is the ideal way to create clean edge on  any seam. Not only does the cutting blade trim the fabric edge, but the  upper and lower looper threads wrap around the fabric edge, securing  or protecting the fabric edge.  

If you purchased a Bernina L 890 Overlocker or a Babylock Triumph from Cherry Berry Quilts, Terry has put together a fun sew-along for you! Throughout the month of February she will be  walking you through the steps to sew up the Lark Tee and the  Comfy Dress. The Lark Tee has four sleeves that are  interchangeable with each of the necklines. The Comfy Dress  pattern will be drafted in class based on personal measurements. We will be sewing up two different garments using your Serger.
