Who is this suitable for: 

Over 16's- This course is perfect if you have sewn before or if you have attended the some beginners workshops & would like to extend your sewing skills further.

What you'll Learn & Make: Learn how to thread up the overlocker, how to make basic adjustments to the overlocker including; changing stitches, balancing threads, changing the differential feed for different fabrics, adjusting knife position & a quick way to change the threads. Practice on a range of different fabrics, make a set of reusable makeup remover pads- a quick project to complete on the overlocker to help build your confidence with your new learnt skills. (Some people may make more pads than other depending on the speed of how you pick up the process of using the overlocker)

 **Please make sure your overlocker is in FULL WORKING ORDER if you have opted to bring your own, if you have purchased/received your machine second hand we recommend you take it for a service prior to the workshop (we can highly recommend KN Machine Repairs). If your machine is not in good working order we cannot guarantee you will be able to complete the activities planned in the session- for the fairness of the other attendees tutor time will be split equally between everyone on the session.

Excellent tutorial

Everything you need to know to get you started with an overlocker and taking the fear out of using it. Plenty of time to practice and learn the best way to do things. Also when things go wrong, how to remedy it. Highly recommend it.

Excellent workshop

I attended the workshop to get an insight before purchasing an overlocker. It was a very informative and helpful introduction to how the machine works and making some samples, Lucy is a great tutor. An enjoyable evening with a lovely bunch of ladies.
