Overlocker Basics Workshop  Saturday 7th April OR Sunday 13th May 2pm – 5pm

Overlockers can be daunting machines, especially when you have to thread them from scratch for the first time!

However once you’ve used one you’ll be converted. They give a professional finish and make for super speedy sewing especially when working with stretch fabrics.

This Overlocker Basics workshop will start with the fundamentals of getting your machine up, running and ready to use. Firstly you’ll learn about threading, getting the tension right and how to maintain your machine. You will then make a simple project that will introduce you to different ways of using this versatile machine for finishing and joining seams.

Come along and learn how to use your overlocker to it’s fullest! All materials provided. Bring your own overlocker with 4 thread spools and your instruction booklet.

We will provide: Fabrics for practice and the project, scissors, pins , snacks, handout notes and lots of very useful tips and tricks!

Bring along: Your own overlocker with 4 spools of thread and your overlocker instruction manual. If you would like to ‘try before you buy’ we have a few overlockers on hand for student use.

This workshop is ideal preparation for our 4 week Sewing Stretch course, running from March 2nd till March 23rd on Friday evenings. Soon to be listed. Contact us if you’re interested!
