TXL111: Industrial Sewing Machines (Walking Foot, Straight Stitch, Serger) - SBU

In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to use the Juki Straight Stitch, Walking Foot, and Serger industrial sewing machines. Learn about tension, bobbin casings, practice methods of speed control, operating the presser foot with a knee lever, and using a bobbin winder.

Juki Straight Stitch Enjoy the ability to sew all light to medium weight fabrics with a durable lockstitch. Easily maneuver fabric within the deep neck, tabletop design.

Walking Foot Take advantage of this powerful machine to sew and hem heavy, layered materials like canvas and leather. Experience the walking foot advantage as it moves both the top and bottom of the fabric to keep it from shifting.

Juki Serger Get hands-on serger experience using a 4/3/2 thread overlock stitch to create high-quality binding seams. Prevent fraying and add durability while giving the seams a polished, professional look.

Expect to increase productivity after learning these efficient machines, and start sewing like a pro!
