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.  Learn the best and quickest way to apply rib bands and add sleeves,  along with hemming techniques using both your overlocker and the twin needle on your sewing machine.
