Classes are from Saturday, November 4, 11, 18, 2023 from 10:30 – 1:30pm

Educator: Joyce Lohrmeyer

Put your coverstitch machine to work! Explore technics, tips and tricks to get the most out of it while increasing the professionalism of your project. This class assumes you know how to thread your machine and you have some hands-on experience with sewing. No more ugly fabric: add your custom touches to enhance a project or components of a project. Your imagination is the only limit.



Week 1: How to: lock your stitch at the end of a run; make a hem or casing

Week 2: fagotting & shirring

Week 3: chainstitch with fancy threads, layering decorative stitches.


This is a sample driven class rather than a project driven class. Lots of testing and playing around to arrive at the results you want for your Anatomy of a Coverstitch!
