Registration is happening soon for Summer and Fall. We are offering several summer courses in addition to Basic Serging. We will be offering Beginning Clothing Construction, Copying Ready-to-Wear, Introduction to Theater Costuming, and The Custom Dress Form Class.

Serging is great because it can make garments very professional looking. Rolled edge, decorative threads, sewing on knits, and turning corners as just of few of the techniques covered in this summer short course.

The class is equally helpful to both novices and those who have owned their sergers for some time but know they are not using it to its full advantage. Cañada even has machines available to use for those students that do not own their own. During the class, students will learn to thread the serger, change stitch formations and work on a variety of fabrics from slippery to bulky. Students say their intimidation of sergers disappears after this course.

Here are some examples of serging in garments.


  • Its true. Basic Serging is one of the best skill building classes to take. I had watched my serger collect dust on its cover for over a year before I took this class. Now, I can’t imagine sewing any project without having it at the ready.

  • It is never too soon to finally “bond” with your serger! To have one of Cañada’s terrific instructors lead you through the basics as well as creative serger techniques, your serger becomes one of your special sewing tools.
