Instructor Bio:
Deb Canham
Deb has spent the last 20 years designing and working with her own factory in China and working as a Consultant to garment factories improving their quality control through education and developing simple methodical systems . She retired from travelling to China 3 years ago and since then has focused on the Serger for home use designing projects, patterns, courses and videos to encourage serger owners to `play` and develop confidence with these machines. Her aim is also to provide Serger Teachers with some fun technique based projects.
The serger has the ability to use much heavier weight decorative threads, than the sewing machine, which opens up a whole new world of fun embellishments and finishes which are the `backbone` of Deb`s designs.
Deb`s `Creative Tote` pattern was selected as a Challenge Project for the Yahoo Baby Lock Serger Group and over 240 Tutorials were sold in 2 weeks. People want to be more creative with their sergers.
Her `Working with Knits On Any Serger` is available as a downloadable course, with a workbook and 24 videos. This has been a huge seller with all the beginner sewers who are discovering sewing as a result of the very active social network groups promoting wearable knits.
Deb has been working on some new programs combining the EQ Designer on the Destiny with the serger. These will be releasing 2019.
