BERNINA L890/L860 Serger Instructional Class - WAIT LIST

BERNINA's latest L 890 and L860 machines are full of innovative features and lets you sew, cut and finish in one easy step! This Mastery class will give you the confidence and expertise to get the most out of your new machine. Students will learn threading (One-step BERNINA Air Threader; color-coded one-path threading), maintenance, navigation, different stitches and how to switch between them, and much more. (L860 owners will be able to pack up a bit earlier than the L890 since they do not offer the Cover and Chain stitch options.)

Thread Note:

If you are a new serger owner, I highly recommend that you choose 5 different colors for the 5 cones of thread on the supply list (only 4 cones for the L860.) These 5 thread colors could even be Isacord thread so they could be used in the future for embroidery/decorative stitching if desired. Ideally these should be blue, red, green, yellow, and purple. As you are learning your machine these colors will help you identify the various stitches, and which parts may need to be adjusted to obtain that perfect stitch.

If you are an experienced serger owner, feel free to bring 5 cones in the same color.

The cone of Maxi Lock Stretch thread can match any of your spools. Pick a color you will be likely to use in the future.
