Overlockers are amazing machines that can stitch, trim and neaten seams all in one operation. Yet so few owners fully understand them or use them to their full potential. Most people who have overlockers only use them for neatening edges but they can do so much more. This workshop teaches you to get to know your overlocker.


What will I learn?
-Know what all the parts do
-How to thread it and obtain the correct tension
-Sewing knitted fabrics
-Basic edging and seaming operations using 2, 3 & 4 threads
-Flatlock and blind hemming
-How to add decoration to your clothes
-The afternoon session will give you time to review and practise the techniques covered in the morning.

You must be able to bring your own 4-thread overlocker to this class.

Additional Dates: 11 January 2019

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Know Your Overlocker are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
