Serger Windsock

A windsock that waves gently in the summer breeze is a great addition to your deck or porch. And Sew Organized Designs (formerly the Fat Quarter Gypsy) has a terrific pattern that includes an innovative pop-up spring that holds your windsock open to
catch the slightest breeze. This pattern, “Windsock Pop-ups” (pattern # FQG135), is available at All Brands.
The Windsock Pop-up pattern has been revised for construction on a serger. We will use the 3-thread narrow or rolled hem to edge the windsock streamers and to add a decorative touch to the windsock cylinder. For a long lasting windsock, we will make it from nylon flag fabric.
For all skill levels. Basic knowledge of your serger, including how to thread it and being able to serge a 3 or 4 thread stitch, is required. Threading and the basics of serger sewing will not be taught in this class.
Bring a lunch and drink.


PATTERN: Available at All Brands. “Windsock Pop-ups” (pattern # FQG135) by The Fat Quarter Gypsy. This includes standard sewing machine the pop-up spring to hold the windsock open.*
Pre-cut kits are being provided at no charge by a very generous
member of the Richmond Chapter of the American Sewing Guild.  Colors will vary. As of 3/30 it sounds like kits could include any 3 of the
following colors: Red, pink, gold, green, brown or black. Other colors may be available but are unknown at this time. As more information on the kit colors becomes available, participants will be updated.

First to class, first choice of the kits. No reservations.
