This ‘Know Your Overlocker’ online workshop will help you get the best from your Overlocker.
Learn how to thread your overlocker, understand tension, and find out how to use it to its full potential. This class will revolutionise your sewing. ‘Know your overlocker online’ is a live, real-time tuition session not a pre-recorded, downloadable course. So you can ask questions as you work through the exercises and get personalised feedback, just like being in a real class!
Overlockers are amazing machines that can stitch, trim and neaten seams all in one operation as well as hem garments and add decorative finishes.
But overlockers are more complicated than normal sewing machines. They’re more difficult to learn to use ‘out the box’ and need a whole new set of skills. So I’ll teach you to understand how the tension settings affect the stitch type and quality,. Also how to recognise and obtain correct tension. We’ll also look at different stitch functions and their applications. So you really do get to know your overlocker and discover just how versatile they are.

-If you own an overlocker and is scared to take it out the box
-if you don’t know how to obtain the correct tension for a project
