A Weekend with Gail Yellen

SEP 18-19

In these two workshops with Gail Yellen, you'll learn new amazing techniques and experience the versatility of Coverstitch machines. You may sign up for these workshops individually or as a package!

Day 1: Cosmetic Serger-y with Gail Yellen (Fee $249)

Welcome to Cosmetic Serger-y! Whether you’re a new serger owner, or have been using one for years, you’ll learn some very cool techniques that will take your creative artistry to a whole new level. A few tweaks of your serger settings can transform utility stitches into beautiful embellishments for quilts, garments, and home décor projects. And if you’ve never serged with decorative threads, prepare to be amazed. You’ll look at your serger as a new addition to your embellishment tool kit!

Day 2: Coverstitch Workshop with Gail Yellen (Fee $249)

The versatile cover stitch isn’t just for hems. In this workshop we’ll insert a zipper, create an amazing flat fell seam, finish an unbound neckline and you’ll finish stitching “in the round” without losing one single stitch. When you hem knit garments, is your cover stitching wonky with irregular stitch lengths? You’ll learn an easy solution for a perfect “over the hump” cover stitch. We’ll compare the triple, wide, narrow cover stitches and the chain stitch too.
