Make a Jumper on your Overlocker! Saturday 26th August

In this workshop, you learn overlocking techniques specific to sewing stretch or knit fabric.

The two workshops taken together will give you next level overlocker skills that will change the way you sew!
Overlockers are the natural friend of knit or stretch fabric. They make stretch garments super speedy to sew and the skills you learn can be applied to a wide range of stretchy clothing including street, active and underwear.
