If you've been thinking about getting an overlocker, or have one that you'd like to know how to use properly then this is the course for you! During the day you'll learn how to thread and use an overlocker and make your very own top too. We have overlockers available in the studio but you're also welcome to bring your own one along.

This course will cover all the basics of sewing with an overlocker as well as some specialist tips and tricks. You will learn:
+ How to correctly thread an overlocker
+ How to adjust the tension and threads for different stitches and uses
+ How to sew stretch fabric on an overlocker to create a garment
+ How to finish seams using an overlocker
The skills learnt in this one day class will prepare you to tackle other overlocker projects at home.
