Learn to Love Your Overlocker !!

Do you have an over-locker but are not confident in how to thread it up, or you have tried to use it and you cannot balance the tensions or have you thought about buying an over-locker but you were put off - then this is the course for you.


Overlockers, quite wrongly, have a reputation as being difficult to use and problematic – this could not be further from the truth. If you want to take your sewing to the next level, then this is the course for you.  Once you have used an overlocker and have explored it’s capabilities then you will not look back.  Several of our students have completed this course and purchased an overlocker the very next day  !!


During this half day course you will learn:

~ Threading & Rethreading the Easy Way

~ Tension Settings & Adjustments

~ Adjusting the Cutting Widths

~ Creating Seams on Different Fabrics

~ Rolled Hems

~ Differential Feed

~ Flat-Locking



You can either bring along your own over-locker and we will guide you through all you need to know to get started.Threading

Or if you are undecided about if you want or need an over-locker and how it could improve your sewing then you can use one of ours we have fully functional overlockers for you to practice with.


You will take home all of your samples along with a 20 page deatiled instruction manual so that you can continue sewing confidently at home.


Additionally, we also have a five thread Cover Stitch machine to extend your sewing even further ...


This class is suitable for beginners, but it would be helpful to have some basic knowledge of how to use a sewing machine to aid with understanding the basics and threading - so please contact us if you require a quick refresher course beforehand.


Half Day Course ~ 10 am to 1 pm ~ snacks and refreshments provided.
