The overlocker is a creature that strikes fear into the hearts of many sew-er but it needn’t and we’re here to show you why!
So many sewers are terrified of the overlocker but the truth is it’s a fantastic machine, in fact it’s one of our favourites!! We all wear stretch fabric every day so we need to learn to sew with it, and once you’ve mastered the overlocker you’ll only want to sew with stretch until the end of time!!
Our overlocker classes require a bit of prior sewing experience so they’re not suitable for those who have never sewn before. If you are unsure, please just ask!
In this class you will learn how to thread the overlocker from scratch, change threads without unthreading and how to use the machine in practice to make a simple garment! You can either bring your own pattern or we can suggest some free patterns. please bring your pattern cut out and ready to sew on the day. You might not get the garment finished but you’ll do enough sewing to get a real feel for the machine.
Please note that as we allow people to bring their own overlockers to this class we can’t go into more details about different stitches etc. You can book a 1:1 lesson for this however!
