Get to know your overlocker 2
This is an intermediate workshop for those that have already completed a beginners workshop or similar.
So, you know how to thread your overlocker, possibly even do a few different stitches but you don’t feel that you are still using it very much. Or, maybe it’s just finishing off all your projects and it still gets left in the cupboard. If so, this is going to help you see your overlocker in a whole new light.
We will explore how to incorporate your overlocker into your every day sewing life. We will be working on projects that can be made solely with the overlocker and consider how to use in tandem with a standard sewing machine. We will make four projects from start to finish on your overlocker; a drawstring bag, a lunch bag from oilcloth (similar), a zipped cosmetic bag and an easy peasy table runner that is brilliant for a quick gift when you need one.

Please ensure that when you bring your machine you remember the foot pedal, the power lead, your acessory box and your manual. Please ensure that the machine is also in good working order or we could waste valuable time.
