Serger Smarts

+ Fun with Filaineā„¢

a free webinar with Katrina Walker

Join us for a FREE webinar: Serger Smarts + Fun with Filaine on September 8, 2020 at 2pm EDT. You requested more “serger smarts” content and we’ve got you covered! Katrina Walker will explain lots of uses for your serger, going over needles and thread and explaining functional and decorative applications.

No serger? No problem! The featured project is also easily completed with a standard sewing machine. Though, you’ll be inspired to upgrade your sewing space with a serger after hearing all you can do with it!

Serger Smarts book

Katrina’s new book, A Field Guide: Serger 101 goes into further detail to guide you through several projects, and we’ve chosen one to showcase during the webinar. So once you gain your serger smarts you can confidently conquer this tote with a 3- or 4-thread overlock, making quick work of construction.


In our hour-long webinar, we’ll make a wonderful Market Tote featuring dimensional embroidery done in Sulky Filaineā„¢ thread! Choose from the Dandelion featured above or cluster a couple of other florals together (Cosmo and Gerbera Daisy featured below) for a pretty addition to your tote. The Pollen design collection is a Sulky exclusive, only available with our fun webinar kits!

The “pollen” from each floral design is embroidered using Filaine thread, which blooms when brushed with a wire Filaine brush for a 3-D effect.

You’ll learn tips for working with Filaine (hint: it’s tricky and requires a few adjustments!) for a balanced stitchout, along with all the instructions for a professional looking tote.

Made in high-quality Art Gallery Fabrics denim and print fabrics, the tote will be your go-to accessory. It’s large enough to carry all your essentials and strong enough to withstand lots of wear and tear.
