Unit 4 Learning the Parts of the Sewing Machine and Serger Sewing Machine

It is essential that you learn the parts of your sewing machine prior to sewing.  The JUKI machines used in the production lab for AMPD 1023 are industrial machines with many moving parts.  Knowing the parts of your machine and what each part does will ensure the safe operation of the machine.

The serger will be used to finish seam edges.  There are parts of the serger you will need to become familiar with in order to safely operator the machine.  There is a knife edge that will cut fabric and if you do not know where it is located or how it works, you may cut fabric unintentionally or cut yourself.
