Get to know your overlocker
Get to know your overlocker with us.
If you want to get the best from one of these machines this is the workshop for you. Overlockers can be daunting and intimidating machines with their complicated threading process and knife. This workshop will help you feel more confident about independently threading your machine, show you the common pitfalls and explain the best settings for the variety of stitches that we can use an overlocker for.
Using an overlocker will help give a professional finish to your projects and they work particularly well on stretch fabrics.
Topics covered will include;
The parts of the overlocker machine
Threading and rethreading
Working stitch length
Understanding differential feed
Sew corners and curved edges
A follow on session ‘get to know your overlocker 2’ also runs where we make a number of small projects just from your overlocker.
