What happens in this class?

An overlocker is a type of sewing machine that uses multiple threads to seam fabric while also overcasting to cover raw edges. It is a beautiful (and very useful) piece of equipment, but they are a bit more complicated to use than regular sewing machines. If you are thinking about getting an overlocker or you already have one but you don't feel confident enough to use it, then our Overlocker Workshop is exactly what you need! This 3 hours workshop is designed to walk you through the basics, build your confidence and teach you what you need to know…

This session was a good introduction to using an overlocker. I would recommend it to give confidence in understanding the basics. Lots of good information and tips. The teacher was lovely and very patient and helpful.

I bought an overlocker more than two years ago, it sat glaring at me and I was too overwhelmed by the number of spools to open the box and play. I'm now confidently threading the machine and starting to experiment with simple projects. We'll worth the money

I wish there were more stars. What a great class. Rita explained everything clearly and patiently. I was using my own machine. Rita had taken time before the class to research information about the model. She had prepared fabrics on which we could practise. She took us through using the machine step by step. The last hour of the class involved making a little vest top, from pinning and cutting out the pattern to completion. If you want to learn about overlockers, this is the class for you. You won't get a better teacher and you won't regret signing up.
