Last Saturday I attended a serger workshop at my local Hancock Fabrics. I recently purchased a Husqvarna H Class 200S serger. Prior to this, I had never used a serger but I knew I wanted to learn because I primarily do garment sewing. The serger I purchased is the introductory model by Husqvarna. My newer sewing machine is also Husqvarna and I’m very pleased with it so I wanted to stick with their line of machines. Let me now share with you some basic tips I picked up at this workshop.
I swung by Barnes & Noble today to get a birthday present for somebody and could not resist perusing the sewing book section. Granted, I certainly do not need any more patterns or sewing books but my powers of resistance failed me when I saw this book.
The Vogue 2015 spring catalog is now out and Hancock Fabrics is having two Vogue pattern sales this month from now until February 3rd and again February 11 – February 14th. All patterns are on sale for $4.99. I recently stopped by and picked up 7 new patterns.
Three of the patterns have just been released and the other four are from years past but I hadn’t noticed them previously. These are the three new patterns:
I think V1434 would look great in a more casual fabric such as cotton or linen for this summer. I also love the jumpsuit on 9075.
