Service Description

Overlockers can be daunting machines - but this course is a perfect introduction for anyone looking to expand their sewing skills In this course we will be exploring the functions of our overlockers including: - Threading & adjusting tension: This step is often what puts people off as with 4 different threads the overlocker can be quite intimidating. But in this course we will introduce each thread and work on a variety of samples to help you recognise each function - Sewing straight & curved lines: We will create a selection of reusable face wipes to help you get used to sewing with the overlocker, using the blade and tackling different shapes - Different Fabrics & Hems: We will create a needle case using cotton & felt and two tops using floaty & stretch fabrics. We will explore the different hemming options including rolled and blind hems. We will also attach binding, as cuffs, waistbands or neckbands. PLEASE NOTE: We only have 3 overlockers so the places are limited & the course will run with a minimum of 2 Patterns used include - Summer Breeze Top from Waves & Wild - Driftwood or Victory Doleman from Waves & Wild Fabric: We will go over the patterns, fabrics & sizing in the first session.
