From serger machine master, Martha Pullen Company's own Kathy McMakin, comes another fabulous serger extravaganza. This year, she takes a field trip to the beach and has created a collection of beach-friendly projects - created on the serger. One or two are destined to become your new favorites, and you’ll find yourself making them for your like-minded friends and family members all year long!

In just one day you can experience the ultimate in serging. And if you’ve taken a class with Kathy before, you know she delivers much more than we can possibly put into words. You get the patterns with complete directions, pre-cut kits, and workshop extras, laughter, fun and the satisfaction that comes from making beautiful things with friends new and old.

Kathy, whose first love is the serger, shares all her best tips and favorite tricks for successfully serging knits, as you complete a beautiful beach coverup. Experience serged seams, coverstitch hems, blind hems, lettuce-edge ruffles, using the differential feed and more, for a new appreciation of your serger's (and your) talents! 


And the beach tote! Oh, my, what a wonderful project – also created entirely on the serger! Designed to carry all your beach necessities in style, it’s innovative bag bottom, made from window screening, lets the sand just fall right out, while keeping all your valuables securely inside. Pockets, zippers, cuteness .... it's got all the elements you want!
