Well, I know how you might feel because I have been there too. When I got my first serger (more than 20 years ago) it had a manual in Chinese. It was a Singer serger. I still have it and it still works. There was no YouTube then, and I had to figure out everything myself. But my wish to make beautiful things with it was stronger than my fears of using it.  Since then I went through a number of different sergers and created many of my own professionally-looking pieces. It was a long process to learn everything and get the confidence to serge on. 

You can do this too. And I can show you how. My course Serger Made Simple is what you need to put away all your scary expectations and start sewing like a pro in no time. 

This course includes 7 modules and over 60 video lessons – get to know your serger from the inside out in much less time and with far less frustration than if you tried to figure it out on your own. 

The course starts with a detailed overview of various serger parts and accessories. 

Look at your serger. So many knobs, buttons, and small parts – do you know which part is which? It looks more complicated than it really is — once you start using your serger, it will all make sense.

This lesson will help you identify the essential parts and components of your serger and learn some very important serging terms.

In Module 2 you are going to learn how to thread a serger and I will give you some important details about serger threads. 

I will show you step-by-step how to do it for a regular serger and a self-threading serger. I also will show you how self-threading sergers work, how to do quick-change threading, how to thread woolly nylon thread.

In Module 3 you will start using your serger and you are going to learn an essential serging skill – how to adjust serger stitches and we will talk mostly about tension settings. I will show you how to adjust tension, and also stitch length and stitch width. 

Module 4 is focusing on 15 types of serger stitches (basic and specialty) that are the most useful for home sewing: 4-thread, 3-thread, 2 -thread overlock stitches, narrow hem, rolled hem, flatlock.

You will get detailed info on how to set up your serger for all these different stitches.

This module includes a single reference chart for all stitch types, including the name of the stitch and how to set it up on a serger.

In Module 5 I will show you basic serger techniques you will always use for your sewing projects:

  • How does a serger work?
  • How to keep correct seam allowances? 
  • Securing ends of stitching
  • Serging corners and angles

Module 6 and 7 are about serger maintenance and troubleshooting so you don’t need to hunt around between the machine manual and YouTube videos in order to get necessary information when you have problems with your serger. You will be equipped to troubleshoot serger issues with detailed how-tos.
