Deb Canham has been a sewing educator since the 1970's teaching classes in the U.K., Germany, Japan and here in the USA. She is a Baby Lock Ambassador and now lives in Venice, Florida. 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 system techniques. Her love of the serger was probably inevitable given the industrial nature of these machines. Deb sees the modern sergers as great creative tools and designs fun projects for the Serger and particularly enjoys working with the fun decorative threads that perform so well on the serger.


Watch below as Deb gives us some pointers about creating wired edged fabric. WOW - she makes it looks EASY.
