Overlockers aren't scary! They can take your sewing to the next level! This starter class will get you up and running and confident to use your Overlocker.
We take 3 hours to learn how to use the overlocker and practise our stitching on fabric. We'll learn to thread the machine from scratch, change thread colours, change tension and overlock edges, curves and make rolled hems.
Then for the rest of our time together, we'll take on a quick garment to sew up in stretch fabric, completely on the overlocker.
