Meet Milinda Stephenson, a National Educator for Baby Lock and a frequent contributor to Creative Machine Embroidery magazine.  A writer, professor and sewist for over two decades, Milinda believes in the power of simple serging and basic machine embroidery to bolster creativity and self-confidence. She loves sharing her enthusiasm for all things sewing with makers like you!

In this two-day interactive class, students will get an in-depth introduction to Top of the line Baby Lock Embroidery machines and Sergers and what makes them the easiest to use! Milinda will guide you in learning popular features in the Baby Lock Solaris and Altair including IQ Designer AND many of the Serger stitches, including Rolled Hem, Flat Lock, Wave Stitch & Cover/Chain Stitch.  

On the Friday evening before the hand-on serging begins on Saturday, Milinda will showcase some of the wow features of the machines, and show examples from the trunk show of how each “wow” stitch is used.

Along with the top features of the machines, students will learn many finishing tips and tricks, how to work with optional accessory feet, proper thread, needle & maintenance recommendations and gain a thorough understanding of the operation of the machines.
