There is so much to learn about the overlocker! It can do so much more than just neaten up your seams. We are constantly being asked to create an overlocker based workshop, so here it is!
Craig, your host, will unleash all the different kinds of sewing you can achieve with your overlocker, as well as replacing parts and machine maintenance.
If you have recently purchased an overlocker, or are thinking of purchasing one, then this workshop is the one for you!
During this 2 hour workshop, your tutor will cover EVERYTHING you need to know to become confident with your machine.
Blades - upkeep and changing
Needles - Types and changing
Accessories - feet / tweezers / cone holders / etc
Threads to use
Threading your overlocker - (simplified!)
Changing thread colour without a total rethread
Differential feed (what the heck is that?!)
Cutting width selection
4 thread or 3 thread sewing options
Creating a rolled hem - removing the finger plate
Sewing a blind hem
Gathering foot - 1 layer and 2 layers of fabric
Cleaning and oiling - machine maintenance
We will be teaching the workshop on Brother 1034D / 3034D / 2104D overlocker machines. Each model is basically the same, with a few minor differences which will be explained in your workshop.
Please note: We can only teach this group workshop on Brother overlockers, as we will be using specialised feet, specifically for brother.
You can then transfer this information, to your own brands of overlockers you may have at home.
You will receive a worksheet to take home with you.
If you would like to learn, solely on your own machine, then you will need to book a private tuition session.
